I have been to this venue a number of times and I have always found the staff to be courteous and friendly. The menu is not huge but the choices are good and the food is cooked fresh and service to the table is quite quick. The bar has a good range of real ales and again service is very... More

A lovely, cosy restaurant. Good range of dishes and lovely deserts. I like the option to have a small desert with coffee.

Good atmosphere, nice decor etc . We were a party of nine so there is was plenty of conversation otherwise the long wait for our food would have been more of an issue. When it arrived it was good, although two steaks were not medium and med-rare as ordered but we didn't complain as the meal overall was good. Would... More

We visited the Cuckoo as a group of 4 adults and one child in a high chair Seated pretty quickly as we reserved but felt we had been put in a corner due to child in party and need of a high chair. The high chair was put in a place between two tables, we had passed many more suitable... More

Lovely old building Typical chain food pub/restaurant, you get what you pay for and in this instance that means awful service and very mediocre food and I hate to say it very indifferent beer ! I really do wish the manager and his staff could try a bit harder, with I feel very little effort they could turn this into... More

I have visited this restaurant five times. On four occasions the food was very good and once the fish I had was not to my liking. However, in my humble opinion this restaurant still gets five stars for the quality of the food,choice, portion sizes, costs and general cleanness. Also a special mention to a staff member: Greig. Greig is... More

Went to this Vintage Inn having been many times before but it was a comprehensive fail. They had the beer we wanted (Doombar) but very slow in getting it. Ordered a starter which was a tear and share bread with cheesy garlic - outside was too hard to eat and the inside uncooked. Returned it to waitress after about 3... More
