This was my first visit in over a year because of medical problems. We have visited Ascough's every month for over four years so the meal was much anticipated. I wasn't disappointed. Welcomed back by the staff, almost as old friends. The food was superb and the service was as remembered, couldn't fault it. Well worth the 60 mile round... More

Visited this restaurant for lunch yesterday, what a delightful meal. The food was cooked to perfection - a comprehensive choice of dishes - just sufficient bite to the vegetables - the presentation was great and the service perfect. Will definitely visit again.

Such a great place to meet and eat! We chose this restaurant because of the trip advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed, in fact it exceeded expectations. All the food , especially the desserts, was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. For less than £20 per head we all had lunch - a main, side dishes, dessert, coffee and a bottle... More

Ascough's inventive and comprehensive menu is second only to the well known five loaves and two fishes catering miracle in providing fantastic value for money. We have been happy regulars for the last three years and we loved the smaller, more intimate and quirky small restaurant for it's unbeatable combination of atmosphere and great cooking. A fire sadly put paid... More

This is an outstanding restaurant. The food is imaginative and is always excellent quality. We have been regular visitors for many years. The service is also first rate. We have been to many 5* star restaurants and hotels but nothing ever seems to be as good as Ascough's! It is excellent value for money as well. We consider ourselves very... More

Ascoughs has to be our favourite restaurant, it is such a pity that it is virtually impossible to get in at short notice. This was our first visit to the new venue, and it is good to see familiar faces and that it accommodates more diners. The main room is a bit echo-ey and for someone who finds it hard... More
