Recently visited the 1885 restaurant for a friends get together. We each chose the "7 course taster menu" which was reasonably priced at £60 for two people. We then upgraded a further £25 each so that the menu included a variety of drinks which complimented the meal through out. The welcome was warm and inviting with attentive staff at the... More

Fab food - it can't be faulted. Moody staff need to be addressed. Food AND service are key. Arguments behind the bar don't help the ambiance for the customer

We went to the 1885 pub today with our two sons for a meal, we ordered from the pub food menu. The service was exceptionally slow, the staff were too busy chatting behind the bar, unfriendly at best and just plain rude at worst. We had to ask for our main course 30 minutes after our starter, when it finally... More

We had a birthday party dining experience in their private room upstairs. Vicky and her team did us proud, nothing was too much trouble. They served us with fantastic food which our party thoroughly enjoyed accompanied with excellent wine. Well done and thanks.

If you want a cooked breakfast it's only available between 11 to 12 o,clock which in my opinion was a bit late. We ate in the pub and the... More

We had booked to attend their themed vegetarian evening in the restaurant but 24 hours prior to the event we were contacted and informed that due to a poor response they were transferring the meal to their pub. We were a little disappointed because the atmosphere would not be the same. One good point is that there is draught beer... More

Stayed here for one night and had dinner. The room was very comfortable and pleasant , big very comfortable bed and decent bathroom. We ate in the pub for dinner and had an excellent meal worthy of any restaurant. Wine by the glass was quality including champagne. All in in a great friendly experience and good value for money.

The rooms are fabulous,everything is immaculate the bathroom has lots of huge fluffy towels, we would definitely stay there again,there was a slight mix up with the breakfast order. I had misunderstood that a continental breakfast is delivered to the room. I thought it was laid out in the pub but... More
