Philip holds a breakfast meeting at 7:15am on Thursdays for people interested in having a business discussion or two and an excellent cooked breakfast to boot. Worth a visit.

Liked the service, food and wine. It was nice to meet the owner and he obviously cares for the restaurant and the hotel, which was nice to see. We had a lovely time. You must pop by if in the area and explore the menu and wine list.

There is a breakfast meeting at Trimstone at 7am on Thursday mornings when a group of business people get together to discuss topics that business people wish to discuss. At a recent meeting taxation was on the agenda. What's more a good cooked breakfast is also provided for a small fee. Go along and take a look.

Apparently untrained staff, chef running reception, tired unloved building & it was supposed to be a unique dining experience. Limited menu, food ok but overpriced. We could have had a better meal for half the price elsewhere. Waiter did his best & helped out where he could.

How dare you - such precocious, jumped-up opinions. Do you really think we want or need your type here? The answer is no. How dare you criticise my son who is one of the most efficient front-house staff in the hospitality line going. As for prices, I think you were expecting five stars for your £57 for the two of...

My wife and I and our 2 children visited this place last year. We came across it while driving and saw a sign advertising Sunday lunches, so we thought we'd have lunch there. The service was poor.

Unfortunately there is something fishy about this 'review'. We have been closed to casual full restaurant Sunday lunches for about three years now, only offering them either to bookings of 8 or more or for special occasions like Mother's Day. The 'advertising flags' (banners) to which this person refers were removed subsequent to that decision. TripAdvisor demands that a review... More

Spent a very relaxing afternoon having a lovely cream tea with a large group of ladies. Great home made scones, lashings of cream and jam and plenty of tea and coffee. We were looked after very well and were given time and space to enjoy eachothers company. Thank you
