Good value, fast and friendly service

This was a spur of the moment to come here, and this is a good place for value. The food was of reasonable quality for the price. The steaks were a bit chewy, however you do get what you pay for. The XXL burger that my son had looked very good (and massive). All in all, 3 large meals and... read more

Good value. We read the reviews which were mixed. Some loved it, some hated it. We had a great meal. Good price and friendly staff.

As the title of my review says, this really was a great visit!!! The Swiss Cottage ticks every box and you shouldn't look down on what it has to offer, the value is absolutely top notch, you will be hard pressed to find better. So the occasion was a surprise birthday meal for my lovely wife, consisting of 20 people... More

Top food. Excellent wine. Superb staff. Gr8 prices. OK the toilets and gardens could do with a little TLC but we had a Gr8 meal out sitting overlooking the pond. The garden should have a designated smoking area as we hate inhaling other people's stinking smoke whilst we are eating.

food came very quickly, service was attentive, portions were plentiful, but food was tasteless. I had fish and chips. the fish was unremarkable, so was the batter. the chips were fine for some tastes, big chunky, but I prefer mine a bit crisper, a bit thinner. You can't please all the people all the time.

What can i say? This place holds a lot of memories for me, not just because it happens to be situated on a road a grew up on, but also because i went into labour with my daughter here. I have been visiting the establishment for many years since. It caters for all types of situations from family gatherings to... More
