Lovely pub, very friendly staff and wonderful atmosphere but just wish the chef didn't always try to be too adventurous in his creations as sometimes they really don't work. The food most of the time is wonderful but have had a few disappointments.

My sister and I saw that the pub had changed hands and decided to try out a quick lunch - and how glad were we that we did. The welcome and staff were wonderful, a lovely atmosphere and staff were very attentive without being annoying. A huge selection of tasty non-alcoholic drinks was a nice surprise as we were driving... More

When I rang up to book, I was asked if the meal was a special occassion and I explained it was a birthday celebration meal. It was therefore a lovely touch to find a birthday card from the staff waiting on the table when we arrived. The real ale at the bar is excellent and there is also a good... More

Visited the hermit with a group of 18. Had to pre book but this was not a problem. Food was very tasty and well presented in a trendy way. No problem with the large party eating all at the same time. Waiter was very patient and went out of his way to be friendly, funny and efficient. Very small pub... More

Greeted politely and shown to our table with a good service the whole night. For starters we kept it simple with a house salad and baked brie. For mains we had the lamb, sirloin steak and the Hermit... More

When I visited the Hermit with Father, we sampled the lunch menu rather than the evening dinner menu. Father had the Hermit's take on a hot dog which was a large part of a baguette filled with a sausage and shallots. A large salad was included with skinny fries (french fries) My dish was that stalwart of the northern home... More

You receive a warm welcome IF you are eating, if you want to just pop in for a drink you get more or less ignored by the management ! This is a shame as it's a nice pub and welcomes dogs .
