Pleasant setting, comfortable restaurant, attentive waitresses who all had a smile. Living social deal, 2 x 7 course tasting menus for £60. Disappointing start with an amuse bouche of a mushroom pastry, pleasant but not overly exciting. All savoury courses that followed were lovely and well worthy of a high rating, the tuna was by far the stand out course... More

We had a meal here (at the pub) on Saturday night, we had reserved a table so were shown to it straight away. Although the pub was busy we ordered and the food arrived promptly. I have Bruscheta starter and Scampi & chips and my husband had piri-piri chicken starter and pork chop main (from the grill special board). I... More

We have been to the restaurant twice now and have really enjoyed the food and the service both times. You do pay a bit more, but in my opinion you get what you pay for. Great a a special treat!

This restaurant, attached to the pub of the same name (1885 The Pub), is a supurb dining experience all round - no negatives at all. Wonderful staff, setting, food etc. Not cheap but you definitely get what you pay for. It's where I always ask to go when I'm being treated. Good parking too.

We had another enjoyable visit with our friends to their themed "Game Night". We all ordered different meal selections and they all proved excellent which we enjoyed with a great bottle of wine. As ever the atmosphere and ambiance along with the service is first class. It is nice to be served by the regular professional friendly staff.

We went on Friday 24th October and had a truly great experience. I've been a few times before & each time the service, food & ambiance have been second to none. I can't fault the place. The restaurant is laid out well with room to breath between tables which, even when full, makes for a more private dining experience. There... More

Came to the 1885 with a group of four and thought we would see if we could eat in the restaurant on a busy Saturday night, even though we hadn't booked. We walked in to a full and buzzing restaurant and we're told there was unfortunately no tables available however we would be able to eat in the pub, which... More

It only few minutes away from my house but I've only been here for drinks. It's slightly expensive for drinks but worth calling in to see what it's like. Quite a lot of locals go in.
