Super flavours, well seasoned, good value food. Excellent service. Well done The Town House. I... More

Me and my partner went here on date night because we have been before and LOVED it. Everything was going really well and our starters came very promptly, and were absolutely delicious. We then had to wait 50 minutes for our main course to come. Thankfully, we were enjoying each other's company and had lots to talk about so we... More

Fantastic venue to celebrate a special occasion. Food was excellent value and the wines were top class and excellent quality. All food was served hot and well presented. The service by the staff was first class being efficient, fun and friendly. We will definitely return again.

Great place! This was the first time we had been and chose it as it had lots of gluten free on the menu. They change their menu due to the local produce and availability but always have the majority being gluten free or can be adapted to ensure it is gluten free. Amazing food just the right sized portions to... More

Usually when it comes to Christmas set menus you set yourself up for mass produced low quality food, and being a lover of everything Christmas I often find myself having at least 5 Xmas outings a year, so feel I am well experienced in what is or isn't a good meal. The meal I had at The Town House was... More

Its never easy booking a Christmas lunch for 35 people with different tastes and requirements but after a democratic vote the team chose The Townhouse based on the menu which gave options to all (and when a vegan joined the team the restaurant were incredibly accommodating to ensure she had just as tasty a meal as everyone else) We had...

Have visited several times for the set menu in the evening (three courses for £10!), and always had very good food (just the right amount and a good variety) and good service. A favourite.

Our friends had said that it was a great place to go for a cheap meal. We got there in time for their £10 set menu deal, which is a great price. I really wasn't very impressed with any of the food that we had. Maybe we made the wrong menu choices, or maybe they were having a bit of... More

Went for dinner on Saturday evening, the food was delicious,everyone enjoyed their meals. The service was excellent,however it was slow. I am not sure whether it was due to shortage of staff or just a busy Saturday, but having to wait didn't stop us having a great time.
