We recently booked a table as a party of 10. We were allocated a large table in the Bar lounge. The Service was quick and efficient, with the staff being very obliging, polite and helpful. The Menu choice was varied, with sufficient choice to suite most tastes. The food was prepared and served nicely, and we had two courses within... More

Following numerous Christmas day visits to The Cedars covering a period of 20 years I felt the need to offer my experiences after reading a recent review. I have never commented on a review site before but felt that the great food and service needed defending following one recently derogatory comment on this site. I was in attendance this past...

I went here last night for a meeting and had booked their room with a finger buffet. One of my colleagues called yesterday afternoon to confirm numbers, but was told that they could not provide the buffet. However, what they did provide was a great Pie and Mash for us, which i have to say tasted great and an ideal... More

We spent a long weekend at The Cedars celebrating a friends birthday. Not a thing could be faulted from the moment we arrived - extremely welcoming and friendly staff. Our rooms were lovely and beds were super comfy. Dinner on the friday night was delicious, we ordered a variety of dishes and we were all very pleased. Breakfast on both... More

We really enjoyed Christmas lunch at the Cedars. Great traditional food, generous portions, welcoming staff and friendly atmosphere. Excellent value for money which includes half a bottle of wine per person - I've booked for Christmas 2015 already!

7 of my family including my elderly mother in law booked a meal for Christmas day..the welcome was warm although the decorating and general appearance was tired and needing a refurbishment. This aside, we waited for our table to be ready in a very cozy bar area. We were eventually called through to our table and it had seemed I... More

I find it very disappointing when people are quite happy to go onto a review site and try to destroy your livelihood but haven’t got the decency to speak face to face to someone about their supposed complaints beforehand. I really don’t know where to begin with your lengthy list of comments which have been discussed here at great length... More

My husband and I stayed there a week. The staff retained their professionalism while being friendly, which gives them an A-Plus in my view. It is an old farmhouse and as such the rooms, while small-ish, were very adequate with all the "mod cons", i.e,. coffee making facilities, hair-dryer etc. The food was excellent, and I had to ask the...
