This place was a pleasant surprise, I had never been in before but was recommended to me for my birthday meal. The food was very good and all of us highly enjoyed our meal with no faults at all. The staff were all pleasant & very attentive nothing was too much bother for them at all. I would say the... More

This was a favourite of ours a few years back, until it closed. This is the first time we have been back since it opened, and we are very pleased to return. We often go out for meals with our aged Aunty (she's from Newhaven) and to say she is difficult and fussy is something of an understatement. I have... More

Went there today with my girlfriend and sone pals for lunch. Service was excellent. Efficient and pleasant without being overbearing. The food was really quite good. You could tell everything was made fresh and with the emphasis on taste, such a rarity nowadays. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Came here with my partner and our son for the first time and we were very impressed. Home cooked food was delicious with very generous portion sizes. On a Friday night it was busy but service was quick. The steak pie was lovely and the cheesecake was huge! Very warm and welcoming. We will be returning. Watch out for the... More

Tasty food but a bit pricey. I had hoped that there would be some 'lunch' options but sadly it's starters and main meals only. There is soup on offer but that's the only thing that could be deemed lunch. This may be a reason for the emptiness during lunchtime. The service was perfect and the food was hot. I can... More

They need to fix the parking lot. There are very large holes in it. Manager said they didn't have enough money to fix it. Both trips to the Hideaway there weren't many people in it. The quality isn't bad but it's nothing to rave about -- 24 pounds for a burger and macaroni with one appetizer with a half pint... More

Service with more than just a smile. We had a family dinner last Sat evening and the service and food was excellent. Timing for courses was perfectly spaced and we wont hesitate to go back there. Really good value for money.

My sister and I had lunch at the Hideaway today and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was fresh and clearly of good quality. Attentive staff without being intrusive. I had Cullen Skink which was delicious and tomato and pesto bruschetta, again really fresh and tasty. My sister has chicken broth and bruschetta and was also really impressed (she's been recommending... More
