We received a warm welcome, a table with plenty of room in the window and our dripping coats were whisked away. Coincidentally we both chose starters and main courses from the Value menu. Both of us... More

I think the problem with this place was that we were expecting too much. We had tried to get in the previous night and it was fully booked, so we booked for the following night and managed to get a table only for the 9.30 slot. Together with the great reviews, we therefore had the impression that we would be... More

Came here on a family occasion a couple of weeks back, it's our favourite restaurant, partly because of the reasonable price and top class steaks.. My steak was cooked to perfection as was everyone's! Well done guys

Myself and OH visited in January for a birthday dinner. The fillet steak was to die for! The service was amazing. We haven't managed to get back in there yet, but it's on the to do list. Highly recommended.

McCleary's was recommended by our host at Hazelbrook B&B. We are very glad that we listened. I had a salmon and dill fishcake as an appetizer and the pork medallions as a main dish. My boyfriend had the cod and monkfish scampi. We both loved our food and thoroughly enjoyed the house reds that we had. Service was good, restaurant... More
