What a wonderful experience shared by all the family when we chose The Hilltop to celebrate my "special birthday" . Although it was Valentines Night and the restaurant was very busy Darren welcomed us like old friends. Wonderful food and service in a atmospheric surroundings. Candles and flowers everywhere. Darren bought out a sparkling cake and everyone sang Happy Birthday.... More

My husband and I resent for Sunday lunch which was beautifully cooked and served. Darren is an extremely attentive host and all his staff are 'on the ball', nothing too much trouble. Everything is so welcoming from the foyer to the fantastic open fire in the bar and then into the lavishly decorated restaurant. A little gem, Darren has always... More

My daughter has just got married at Hilltop and from the first meeting with Darren to the actual wedding itself everything was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and all the guests remarked on the wonderful food and beautiful venue and great service. Quite a few guests stayed the night, including the bride and groom and thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality... More

We came for a meal - a surprise for my friend's 50th birthday organised by her husband. 22 of us in our party and it was amazing food, faultless service and beautiful ambience!! The attention to detail was bar none.

Where do I start, we were recommended this place by a friend, a hidden gem which we simply adore. From the moment you arrive through the door it feels like a home from home, so eloquently decorated everywhere you look photographs, and objet d'art. Darren is the perfect host with a great memory for faces who simply cannot do enough... More

We have visited the Hilltop on a number of occasions and it has never failed to impress. It is quirky and charming. As you walk in there is always a rustic floral and candle display and music to welcome you through the door. The roaring fire in the bar is welcoming. The eclectic style of décor is a reflection of... More

Drove down from London, braving the elements, to attend a friend's 70th birthday at the Hilltop. We found it shining like a welcoming beacon in the fog and were immediately taken by how warm and hospitable it was. Lovely 'olde worlde' charm - a real hidden away haven. The food was delicious - lots of menu choice, generous portions and... More

We took a group of friends here to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. As on other visits we had a great evening. Welcoming atmosphere and wonderful food. All our friends enjoyed themselves. Very happy to recommend and will be returning again soon.
