Quality food only bettered by perfect staff

We've been to Ashfield several times and cannot compliment the food and staff enough. The food is amazing and fine dining without the pompous ness and portions that actually fill you up. See you in a few weeks ashfields :)

Went for Sunday lunch, a large group for a family birthday. Firstly sat in the bar area down the side of the bar, not enough seats, uncomfortable and stressful. Dining tables far too narrow and extremely cramped. Food was good though service poor but what really got me was £6.90 "corkage" on 2 tap waters (room temperature - not even... More

My partner, daughter and myself came here for a family celebration. We ordered a drink at the bar and relaxed there whilst choosing our food. We were then taken through to the main restaurant where the atmosphere was relaxed. The tables were far enough apart and the staff attentive without intruding on our evening. My daughter had the pigeon, my... More

My Uncle was visiting for the weekend and wanted to goto Ashfields for a meal as he'd heard good things about the place and he was not disapointed, due to one of the party being delayed the staff were kind enough to hold the table for us and the food arrived quite quickly, great choice of food and everyone one...

No chips in bloody plant pots here, no slate plates or other pointless gimmicks old fashioned good food cooked and served well in spotless souroundings. Plump mussels to die for, fillet steak cooked to perfection . As I would expect Very... More

The tomato and basil soup was extremely good and they were very happy to provide gluten free bread for me. They also told me that the potatoes had been fried in oil that had also been used to fry things with breadcrumbs, so they gave me new potatoes instead. The portions of the main courses are a good size and... More

At least 3 years since our previous visit although used to be regulars for years before that. This recent meal made us wonder why we ever stopped going as was really very good. Generally fair value although the odd dish is a little pricey. Wine list is good. Now benefits from a pedestrian crossing between the restaurant and the car... More

Still my favourite place to eat. Great food especially the pigeon starter. Good variety including the specials board. Nice atmosphere and reasonably priced.

No waffle - we just love the place. We treat ourselves a couple of times a year. We've recently been there for my birthday, and enjoyed it as ever. Long should it continue. Well done to all the staff, thank you
