I have been visiting the Winning Hand quite frequently over the last 6 years and never been dissapointed. Staff is friendly, service is swift and above all the food has allways been great.

A 50th birthday celebration of a friend afforded me the second opportunity to visit this restaurant in the past couple of months or so. Once again I was impressed with the way they provide affordable quality food in a timely efficient manner catering on both occasions for a group in the region of 18 - 20 people at a time.... More

We couldn't praise the restaurant more. The ambience, price, service and the quality of food was excellent. Made it an excellent evening.

Our monthly supper club had dinner here last night. The food for twenty of us was served promptly, perfectly cooked and it was delicious. Wine prices were very reasonable. Definitely worth a visit.

Asked for a small glass of house red ... The reply was that they were far too busy to pour out small measures!... Generally surly service but good value pub food

I arranged for Saturday a social dinner for our walking group.

After spotting the good reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to give it a go for family meal out. What a lovely surprise! Staff were super friendly and attentive. Food arrived very promptly and was fresh and delicious. £70 for the 3 of us including a bottle of wine was very reasonable compared to the nearby equivalent. We'll be back soon!

We had the two course £10.95 lunch deal today. All three of us had different main courses, which were all nice. The lemon tart and waffles were very well presented and tasty. Friendly staff.
