Lovely fish curry

Visited Beresford's with my 4 friends on Wednesday night and was really impressed with the service and food. I had the fish curry which was delicious. Would defiantly recommend!

We went in to this place a little hesitantly, it was empty, the snow was falling and we had tried other restaurants in the centre and walked out. This is a little gem! The service second to none, the food was beautiful; fresh, hot, delicious!!! If you want to try a friendly restaurant that serves tasty food go here! You... More

Visited on a Saturday night. The place was barren of any customers. The menu if you call it that was sparse to say the least. We ordered the chicken as it was the only thing on the menu which wasn't fish or the most expensive steak this side of ordering a cow itself. When we got the chicken I swear... More

Five of us visited on a wet Tuesday night. We went for an early meal and were able to use our Taste card. The food was great for all five of us with lovely breads. Everything was piping hot and beautifully presented. The service was very very good. Would return

We've had a drink in the bar downstairs but hadn't eaten here before. Lunch menu advertised on a board outside, 2 courses for £8.95 so in we went. Decor & tables a little dated & it was fairly quiet. Got sat right under the speaker where sad music was being blasted out. Not quite the atmosphere we'd hoped for. We... More

Eat at Beresfords recently and took advantage of the early bird menu. Prawn cocktail for starters very nice, home cooked lamb madras for main once again very nice, then white chocolate cheesecake for desert. The main issue is the service which was diabolical to say the least. I actually felt sorry for the young lad serving us as he was... More

On arrival we were seated quickly and the waiter was very friendly and polite. We opted for three courses for £14.95, however, we were advised there was no chicken and no pie which were the two options I would have chosen between. I opted to pay a £4.95 supplement for a ribeye steak with Diane sauce for main, a roll... More

GLUTEN FREE MENU - What a treat for my husband! The owners is Gluten Free so they know how to look after you and really understand which is great. We had Soup and Mushrooms for starter, followed by Stroganoffe and Minted Lamb served with a large selection of fresh seasonal and locally produced veg which was lovely as tasty. Would... More
