pub food with a little extra

I have been to the Hillside on several occasions, mostly just for a drink but i have been with my girlfriend for dinner a few times, we have enjoyed it every time, we are both local so it is ideal for us to go and the weekday evening meal deal is really good, the selection for a set menu is... read more

Had a lovely meal last night, the food was fantastic as was the service. However the Ladies toilets are DISGUSTING, NO toilet roll, NO soap, water all over the floors (I hope it was just water!) broken toilet seats bad lighting!!! You would think with all the money taken at hillside they would be able to keep the toilets to... More

Having visited the Hillside Inn for the first time in a while I arranged a booking for 4, those being friends I hadn't seen in a while. Pub appearance inside remains a nice country feel and I looked forward to my meal based on how I remembered it before. I felt so disappointed. I ordered the Beef and Merlot Pie... More

After a night out locally with friends we dropped off at the Hillside. The pub is very nice and well presented.Without a booking we were seated quite quickly, late in the evening, weekend. Friendly staff. Unfortunately the food was the big let down. Minimal portions and probably the worst value fish and chips in the area. One of our party... More

My family have enjoyed many 'get togethers' at the Hillside over the last few years as the location makes it a convenient place for us all to meet and is family friendly. The food has always been of a reasonable standard and price. Unfortunately today (Sunday 5th July) standards appear to have gone downhill. We had the roast beef lunch... More

Visited today for a family Sunday roast to celebrate my birthday but really wished we had chosen else where. We have eaten many, many times at the Hillside and never had any cause for complaint until today. When the meals arrived the portions where tiny and my daughters child's meal was actually bigger than the adult meals. It wasn't even... More

Went on Friday 3rd July. 14 of us to celebrate a couple of birthdays. We sat outside on two separate tables. We all ordered separately and in next to no time our food was delivered, it was hot, tasty and good value for money. Superb service, great food and fab setting. Was pleasantly surprised and will definitely go back again.... More

Food very good, staff pleasant and attentive. Good wine selection with my favourite red Luigi Leonardo so smooth. Good value for money. Always look forward to popping in.
