Have been to No 50 on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. Quality of the food never fails to please with excellent presentation and all at a very good price. Attentive service without being over the top.

Went for lunch on Sunday. We both had the traditional one lamb, one pork and both were excellent. The lamb was nice and pink and the wide selection of vegetables were very well cooked and presented. My Sunday Sundae with chocolate brownies and cherries just finished off perfectly.

Delicious cooked food in their own kitchens on the premises even down to the little biscuits with morning coffee and bread rolls. No reheated or pre cooked food here its an absolute delight and very reasonably priced. Never had a duff meal yet in the past year. I notice some people complain about the wait but if they want food... More

Hello viewers , First I'll start with the positives , it is a lovely clean place with a large carpark , we were welcomed by a lovely man who took us into the restaurant , we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the place because from the outside it doesn't look very big. The tables were nicely spaced out... More

Best meals for a long time the full service and food were excellent will all be back soon. The dessert sharer was very nice but we couldn't even finish it between the four of us. Everything was fresh and well served.

We came to Number 50 for the first time the other night and had a really nice meal. The service was charming and attentive (though it's true to say, a little slow), and the restaurant had a very intimate and warm atmosphere. The choice on both menus (fixed price and a la carte) was wide and varied and in general... More

Went for an evening meal here the other Sat (or "Date Night" as the Mrs calls it) We arrived about 7:35 for a 7:45 booking, but it was almost *9:15* by the time we actually got any food :( by which point I was starving and she'd decided she wasn't even hungry any more. When it did arrive, the food... More

We ate here as a couple, enjoying a well deserved break from our little girl. We were made to feel very welcome and received excellent service throughout the evening. The food was delicious as was the wine. We felt it was very reasonably priced and we'll definitely return when we next have an evening off!

The food is wonderful, I have a beautiful fishcake trio - delicious and for main a succulent salmon steak cooked to perfection, I am a fussy salmon eater and I like a crisp but... More
