1885 has a restaurant, a pub and some stylish rooms for B&B - all are really lovely. We went to the restaurant on boxing day and have returned. Service good and yet relaxed, food sumptuous and ambiance just about perfect. The same can be said for the pub next door, obviously more relaxed and more family friendly and a bit... More

Stayed here with my partner and we had a fantastic stay. Meal was lovely, staff and food was lovely and the accommodation was lovely. Beds really comfortable and the breakfast was presented nicely in a basket. We had a lovely stay and will definitely be back.

Pub food how it should be, wholesome, hot, good sized portions and friendly staff. Went on New Years Eve afternoon and my wife and I had two drinks each, mains, sweets and coffee for £40 and we were full. Definitely going back soon.

Went for a family celebration, as usual the staff were superb. Most of our food was excellent, however, the fish pie left everything to be desired, watery sauce, looked most unappetising. When mentioned, this was taken on board and the cost removed from the bill. I think this was just a small hiccup at an otherwise superb venue.

I did not eat here but after seeing the food that was being served to the tables and the comments from the recipients I certainly will next time. The bedroom was excellent, good facilities good size lovely comfortable bed and... More

We love this themed night. We returned with our friends again for this themed night. We all loved the experience. As usual the food was excellent. The regular staff were the usual friendly selves serving our food professionally. The Beaujolais wine was amazing. We are now waiting for next year's themed evenings events so that we can make our bookings.

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
