We visited the Withies after Christmas after a gap of nearly a year, and although I was sad to see some of the staff, including Pepe (who had been there for ever) have retired. The food is still as good as ever, the best crab salad anywhere, selection of fish (I like the sole) tender, well hung steaks, game in... More

We came back to The Withies after almost ten years. It had gone down hill from the time we visited regularly in the 8o's and 90's. The service was terrible ; we had to ask for napkins, we had to ask for a wine list when our main course arrived. The starters were very good (Scallops for me and crab... More

We have been here many times and as always The Withies is fabulous. The Suckling Pig alone is worth the visit. Truly delicious. Pate and Whitebait to start with followed by the Suckling Pig (of course) and a whole Dover Sole served on the bone. Washed down with a bottle of Puligny Montrachet. Perfect. Service was spot on. Seriously good.... More

We have been going to the Withies for many years, and nothing has changed! It's still the quaint lovely building with a great atmosphere. The food, the menu and everything else has stood still, except the price! Our beef stroganoff tasted good, but was plonked on a plate with no finesse. The service was mediocre, and some of the staff... More

We had guests from Sri Lanka and they wanted to experience an old British style pub/ restaurant. This is perfect as there is a good selection of real ales (not really to our guest tastes but they tried it none the less) and the design of the place is as it was hundreds of years ago. Great real fire was... More

The building is really amazing and old, and the staff are probably the same from the 80s, but I love it. Food is of a very high standard and plenty of it. The garden is lovely, especially when the weather is fine. Sitting under the ivy covered seating is blissful. Roll on summer.

We go to The Withies when we want to feel 'comforted'. It is a classic and beautiful old Inn which has kept its charm and personality both inside and out. The service is warm, friendly and professional and always make us feel welcome. On this occasion we just had sandwiches and Withies Crispies from the Bar Menu but everything was... More

We had lunch here, a big one.!! There was a party in and a funeral party in another room but the service was good and timely. The food was hot and plentiful. Vegetables were extra which I find hard to justify when the main dish is £15 + and we could only have done with one dish between 2 (£8).... More
