Visited for a family lunch yesterday. Our waitress was pleasant and friendly but that's as far as the positives go. Despite the whole pub being empty, we were seated beside the kitchen doors out of which there was a constant tirade of swearing from the kitchen staff. This was accompanied by blaring house music which we found more than a... More

Took the family here, five of us, all adults (or thereabouts). Really excellent food and service. It's a little expensive but you get what you pay for. Strongly recommended for a special occasion. Quality very high.

I tried one of the newer dishes on the menu, the rolled belly pork. It was really nice, with a good accompaniment of vegetables. For £12.95 good value as well. A limited choice of beers, but the Reverend St James was pretty good.

We frequent the hillside inn usually fortnightly, but over the weeks it has gone downhill. Our meal and drinks had an issue, not once did we get asked if the food was ok. We asked for the manager, but was told he was not there, then asked for a supervisor, and was told the same, but having asked at the... More

The Hillside used to be a regular for the family. It's gone downhill lately and we haven't had a meal without an issue in a long time. It's a shame because it used to be great.

6 ate there on a very busy Saturday night but service and food was excellent. We had tried it about a year ago and was very disappointed but what a change. Thank you for a nice evening.
