Promising decor if a bit contrived... A bit like the menu.. Vegetables soggy and tasteless.. Never seen Bubble and Squeak so runny and grey!! Portion size was mean and money grabbing, which given the pricing on the menu, was disappointing .. Not for me

The gazebo was the perfect setting for our outdoor ceremony and the rafters room created a lovely atmosphere at the wedding breakfast. The food was excellent and we... More

Attended a wedding reception at the hotel.. Bar staff never had a smile on their face and not the most welcoming.. A platter of salad on the table between 9, no serving forks/spoons, no condiments, salad cream/mayo available. Small containeer each of coleslaw, pasta and cous cous on each table approximately enough to serve 3/4 people. Pork was very well... More

I have stayed here many times over the years on business, but this was a first with my family. The Ridgeway is run by Kevin & Carol, and I would describe it as my home from home, a very cosy home feel to a small hotel, four luxury rooms within the main hotel, we had two booked, both with kingsize...

We had a family meal here, last night. We had never been before but had heard about the place. We received a warm welcome and the service was excellent and friendly. I ordered the Steak Diane and it was the best I have ever tasted. There was none of the "rushing" that I have experienced in many places. A great... More
