Went here today, and had one of the best roasts ever. Food is excellent, service is second to none and the desserts are to die for. Can't wait to return. Booking a must. 5 *****

I always think that a homecooked Sunday lunch cannot be beaten, but have to say that the Playwright does one of the best Sunday lunches I have had in a long time. I had the fried brie, followed by the Roast Beef and it was all excellent. The desserts are in a leage of their own and the banoffee pies... More

The Playwright is always a good place to go. Maintaining high standards on every occasion: Good food, good service and an excellent athmosphere - often with live music.

We visited the playwright on New Year's Day 2015. The food was amazing,the staff were extremely friendly and the entertainment was really good. We enjoyed it that much we never even noticed the time and in the end they had to give us a gentle nudge towards the door or we would have stayed all night. While we were there... More

I love this place will always go back too, the staff are very nice, especially the blonde woman who was pregnant. The food is delicious. Definitely a must to try. Although, if you sit outside the light attracts lots of insects, so maybe inside is the best option.
