"How do THEY Do It!!!

Having been lunching at The Witthies for many, many years, I wonder how they do it??? Their Menu never changes, its dark and could do with a revamp BUT it is obviously the 'secret' to their success. Family run (and very well I must say), with full dressed service inside and out, it is the 5 star... read more

Came here for lunch after visiting the Watts Gallery and Chapel. How we wished we hadn't. Very poor food at high prices. Definitely not recommended. It's a pity because the actual pub is quite charming and in a very nice setting.

Mum and i stumbled across this little gem looking for a nice pub with a garden. We were blown away. Absolutely stunning gardens, private vined eating booth in the garden, lush green trees and bushes. The food from the bar menu was amazing. We had the seafood platter and the greek salad. Great portions, tasty ingredients and wonderful service.

The Withies continues to deliver precisly what it says on the tin. Hugh and his team deliver the complete package...good food service and atmosphere. Not cheap but hey ho go to the many other so called competitors and spend 30% less and get 100% less than from The Withies..........put simply £50 on a bad meal/experience is £50 wasted

I went here for lunch with a friend, we were asked if we wanted a bar snack or restaurant food - we only wanted a snack, and the main menu looked pricey, so we chose bar snacks. We were told to find a seat and someone would be over; after 10 mins this had not happened, so we went to... More

We visited the Withies again and thoroughly enjoyed our meal as usual. Crab salad starter is to die for, followed in my case by fresh Dover Sole (not cheap, but well worth it), they have a choice of three roast joints on a Sunday, steaks, seafood, game in season, Calves liver - enormous selection, all delicious. Washed down with a... More

Lovely low beamed old pub/restaurant. The food is good English food cooked beautifully and served with a smile and a flourish. The suckling pig is to die for, but everything else is very good too. My daughter loves the treacle tart.

Went 10 years ago with husband and found it overpriced and old fashioned. Made the mistake of giving it another chance with a group of 4 school mums-still same menu and still overpriced-whitebait cooked to a cinder. We shared 2 bar snacks for a starter and had 4 bar snacks as a main course, 6 pimms and 5 glasses of... More
