A 'white line' establishment, middle of the road for quality, service and price

Not memorable, but convenient, acceptable food and service, at value for money prices. Judging from the number of customers, this establishment is popular with locals.

Called in on the off chance on Wednesday evening. Absolutely empty which is a shame as it is one of the long standing Stockton Heath eateries. The food was very tasty and the gentleman who was waiting on us was very polite. It's a little bit dated and the wall hangings need a good clean but we enjoyed ourselves which... More

Not the most amazing food, but considering the price it is perfectly acceptable. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is homely. Perfect for a family or a couple looking for a casual night out. Just don't expect anything fancy.

Good food at a good price. The food is actually better than I thought it would be. Nice pinot rose & good service. Not as fancy as other restaurants but good value for the price.

Tucked away from the main street but the staff are happy, friendly, attentative, and the service is spot on. My partner and I have visited this restaurant a number of times. The food is superb. Good value for money. In our book the food is what you go for and the quality and quantity are great. Who cares about the... More

When you walk into the Ideal the décor is pretty grim, I have to admit. Yellow and purple table cloth and napkins - who though that was a nice choice?? the whole place does need a drastic facelift but the food is great! They do a deal where its unlimited starters - all freshly cooked and piping hot (the honey... More

We have been coming here for a few years now because of the good deal of as many starters as you want and a main for £13.90 the food is lovely aswell and seems freshly made it's always piping hot! Our only problem is the manager he is beyond miserable and never seems to crack a smile the younger waiter... More

We visited with friends yesterday, for my husband's birthday. He wanted to go to another restaurant which we go to frequently but then decided to go to The Ideal for a change. We ordered drinks, but they did not have the wine we ordered from the menu (just a claret - nothing unusual). My friend's beer was sent back because... More
