Visited for Sunday lunch on a recommendation. Not sure if this place wants to be a pub or a restaurant. The food prices are certainly top end. Starters were quite good, particularly the thai fishcakes. Rack of pork quite tasty, but swimming in gravy, which made the roasted potatoes underneath very sad. Yorkshire puddings were burnt and came out cold.... More

I've held off writing this review however after speaking to friends and family who've recently dined at the silver hind, I feel compelled to share my views. Pure and simple they also had a similar poor experience.The food not is overprice price, the service is simply awful.

Visited after reading reviews. Food good, service excellent BUT is this a pub or a restaurant??? Very disappointed to be sat next to a busy bar full of locals as I say food was excellent, but at top restaurant not pub prices they simply must decide what they are

Having hiked for several miles without knowing where we would end up at lunchtime, we stumbled across this pub, and what a lucky find. Excellent beer and unexpected but exceptional food and service, and all at a good price. Could not fault the place and will return soon.

We have visited herefor lunch before, last time we had a full meal, but on this occasion we decided that a baguette would suffice. They were both lovely, but if you do not favour garlic you might have to ask for another option. Food is obviously prepared to order, so expect a bit of a delay before the food comes.... More

I've been coming to the Silver Hind quite regularly since it opened a few years ago, but had not, until now, come here for an evening meal. I have to say, it could not have been faulted. The food, service, and atmosphere were all absolutely superb. A recent change of manager has not detracted from the consistently high standard.

Great quality food and excellent cooking. Everything is made in-house, including the house bread. I had the Trout Pate and Hake as part of the Sunday menu. Everything was full of flavour and presented well. Very good value for money.

We came across the Silver Hind by chance but on the basis of the menu and friendly welcome decided to book in for our Anniversary meal the next evening. THEN we checked it out on Tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. The food was delicious, the welcome warm and the service attentive. Thanks! Sadly we were too full to try what... More

I booked based on the trip advisor reviews. I was impressed when I booked that they asked if I had any allergies but then took no notice when we arrived. The restaurant was very quiet yet it took just under an hour to be served with our starter. The food was nice but the service wasn't up to standard. I'd... More
