Lovely lunch...tasty food, fab service and nothing too much trouble. Deserves 5 stars. Only slight niggle I had roast pork for Sunday lunch and it was advertised as crisp crackling - mine was just soggy fat...didn't bother to send back so not fair to mark down. Had a lovely time and will def return. Thank you.

Visited last Sat for dinner for 2 - great menu, but be aware not the place for a quiet evening out. Delicious fish from specials menu. Extensive choice of wines by the glass although whites were not quite chilled enough. Good selection for vegetarians and non-drinkers (ice teas, mocktails) so returned last night to celebrate daughters A level results. Very... More

Hi Eva, It’s such a huge compliment that you chose to spend two nights with us this week, and we’re especially honoured that we were chosen to celebrate your daughters A Level results – such a special night! We do tend to get very busy at the weekends, but if you’re looking for a more intimate meal for two then... More

We visited on a Sat night after previously visiting The Partridge on the previous evening (See Review) This had come on a recommendation from a friend who had also visited while passing through for a few days as we were. First impressions were good we had popped in for a drink the previous evening and there was a really good... More

The Old Post Office is a large, "funky" vibrant eating establishment which, on the inside, mimics every large city franchise such as Zizzis, TGI's, Nando’s etc both in its appearance and the eating experience. In this respect do not come thinking you will dine with any intimacy or that the food will raise itself above the standard of steak or... More

Dear Guest, Your review was certainly interesting reading from my point of view. We certainly do not intend to offer an experience akin to a High Street chain. We aim to be that little bit special in the way that we operate and, as such, I'm concerned that this is your opinion. I actually googled "Nando's Interior" and found a... More

My husband and I only moved to the area a couple of month ago but have already been here a few times. Each time we've tried something new from the menu. We decided to go late afternoon yesterday for our belated wedding anniversary meal with our small baby. We both picked items from the specials menu (I had the duck,... More

Not great; no beans for the English breakfast so quite dry and the cutlery and crockery was universally not clean. Sausages seemed cheep and the black pudding wasn't well cooked. Disappointed.

Dear Jake, It's a shame that you didn't enjoy your breakfast with us. I certainly apologise if the crockery and cutlery and were not spotless. With regards to the "cheep" (sic) sausages, I would point out that all of our meat - sausages included - are provided by Aubrey Allen. As I have mentioned previously here on Tripavisor, Aubrey Allen... More

£24 for a rib eye steak main course isn't cheap but on reflection it's actually pretty good value. This is a high quality, well aged piece of steak on the bone with a very distinctive meaty flavour that is more aligned to the expensive rare breeds found in the very best steak restaurant in the country (Goodman in London). Like... More

Dear Mikey, Thanks for the solid praise of the steak. The Josper really adds to what is already a fantastic product and I'm glad that you appreciate the difference! I think that it is something of an industry standard to charge extra for sauces unless specifically stated in the menu description of a dish. While I understand that sauces are... More

Went here with my family and was quite disappointed. I'm not vegetarian but I ordered the vegetarian roast because it sounded absolutely divine but it was entirely missing the fondue sauce the menu advertised. It was essentially crumble topping on bare vegetables. I really dislike complaining but I thought I would ask about it, however nothing was really done to... More

Dear Guest, I absolutely agree that the Primavera Crumble was lacking in a sauce and, as promised, Chef and I have reviewed the dish. I must respectfully point out, however, that I did indeed offer an alternative. Conscious that the rest of the table were eating their meals, I suggested bringing you a seperate sauce or, should you prefer, cooking... More
