Lovely meal, shame about the heat!

Visited here on a Friday evening. There was quite a few of us so we booked way in advance, advisable as it seems to get really busy. Service was good and food was excellent. Considering there was a few of us food was brought out in a timely manner, reasonably priced too. The only issue we all... read more

For years this gastro pub has been a delight. The staff well trained, gracious and knowledgable. However within the last few weeks there had been a noticeable change. Lots of new staff, usually a bad sign, that appear to have been let loose on the bars with virtually no training at all. Badly poured pints, mixed up orders, surliness, chatting... More

I'd been here before for lunch to celebrate a friend's birthday, so we decided to go for an evening meal on Thursday. We went early at 5.30 before it got too busy and even so were lucky to get a table so it's better to book one. The car park was very full, but many people had just gone for... More

I went to 'fannys' on a Saturday afternoon for a drink & some lunch. I felt a bit uneasy due to the stares of other people like i wasn't a local, my partner felt the same. It didn't put us off just felt a bit out of place if you know what i mean. The place is nice, the extension... More

The food is really really good be it the main menu, bar menu or desserts, as a family we've probably sampled everything at some point & can honestly say everything has been above our expectations. The atmosphere is always great and despite it always being busy day & night the tables are cleared of empties constantly, the toilets are well... More

Was recommended and we weren't disappointed. Sunday lunch was best I've had, roast beef was tender and delicious. Steak burger was tasty and good quality. Will come back and book a table as we were lucky to get one.

Having allways had good food at Fannys & never been disappointed before, & see the fantastic review and pic of the afternoon tea on tripadvisor my friend & I decided to try it. We had to book 2 days in advance (that's what we were told by staff so the food could be prepared) So after reading about the homemade... More
