We try to eat at the Falcon at least once every month (as the menu changes each month)and have never had a meal there that was anything less that great. Dinner last night was no exception.

We visited The Falcon after a recommendation from a local coffee shop owner. I had the fish pie and vegetables, while my husband had the braised short rib, the food was served very promptly. My pie was steaming hot however the short rib was not particularly hot, though both meals were very nice. We are only here for a long... More

Supper with friends where we enjoyed a delicious meal, served piping hot with excellent menu and 'specials' choices, brilliant service. Lovely Log fires in traditional surroundings but with a a buzz! The Smoked Haddock Souffles with a White Wine Veloute melted in your mouth and their triple cooked chips are yummy! We all had different main courses mine being the... More

The Scallops on a coliflower purée with chorizo was just amazing followed,by the sole in a shrimp butter. Our children had the Bavette steak which is such value for menu at £12.00 and so tasty with the tripple cooked chips.. Couldn't fault the smoked haddock soufflés. Very busy even at 6.30pm but nothing was too much trouble for the lovely... More

enjoyed lunch with friends, good selection of dishes, we all had different main meals which were hot and well presented. Service excellent. So why not a five star review? Well two things - the lemon meringue pie was more like lemon curd pie which did not go well with the basil ice cream. I left nearly all of mine, yet... More

The restaurant is friendly and not too big and has a old world feel to it. We been several times for lunch and a few times for dinner.

After the excess of Christmas it's always tricky to celebrate January birthdays but the Falcon always seems to come up with the goods. Booked lunch for my wife and myself. Welcomed very warmly and that set the tone for the whole meal. Attentive staff without being intrusive, friendly and efficient, prompt but never rushed. Food excellent and a great value.

We had a nice meal here and were pretty happy with the food and service. If I was being churlish, if anything, the service was a little too quick, between starters and main. We literally just finished our starters and the main courses arrived, so we didn't really get a chance to say "hold on a bit". However, I totally... More

We recently visited for a family gathering and enjoyed the three course lunch, a particular highlight for me was the risotto starter. Service was good and very friendly

Dropped in without booking a table on jan 3rd. Was apologetically told we would not be able to eat unless we waited for about an hour and a half. However we only waited for around 30 mins before being seated and having our order taken. Definitely worth the wait!! I can recommend the Beef carpaccio starter, Pork main course, and... More
