Had heard about this restaurant (all good) so when I saw the tasting menu available via Groupon we decided to give it a visit. Meal was a 7 course taster menu and was absolutely delicious. Such great food, value and service we will be back

Stayed for one night the room was perfect very clean, comfortable bed good walk in shower fluffy towels and a good continental breakfast delivered to your room in a picnic basket. 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.

We have just returned from a night at 1885. 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

We went there on a cold and wet Sunday, however the welcome was very warm and professional. The staff were attentive and were there to please. The service was excellent as was the meal. We go out for Sunday lunch as a family and the aim is to try a different restaurant each time. All four of us feel we... More

Well considering it was Mother's Day, I need to be more tolerant I think!! Staff rushed off their feet dealing with harassed children (that was just me) and having to get a large number of people through in fixed sittings was always going to be problematic. However on the plus side, the food was, as always beautiful. The food both... More

I stayed at 1885 on Thursday the 8th May '14 and was very pleasantly surprised. I know this review is for the restaurant only but I also stayed in the guest rooms and found them to be excellent value. As for the restaurant the food was excellent, service first class and cost nominal. Also a fantastic selection available. No complaints... More

Visited 1885 The Pub on a Thursday night with family. We were greeted by two girls who were both very welcoming and friendly towards us all. We were offered drinks and menus, then given an available table in a cosy little alcove to the side of the pub. We chose not to order starters, and went straight to main courses... More
