On arriving for lunch in 2 cars we knew this was not going to be easy as 1 of the cars had to park in the pub car park over the road. On entering the "pub" it was very pleasing on the eye. From this point it was all down hill. We were firstly told around 30% of the menu... More

Great food and service. However what lets this place down is the lack of atmosphere - but we would visit again for the food.

Visited the Oat Hill back in March for Mothers day lunch. Service was great and wide choice of drinks. However the food was really average and didn't leave a lasting impression. Not sure if we chose the wrong date but to be honest it's not at the top of my list of restaurants to return to.

I love this place! It's set in a beautiful 1930's building, it's elegant and classy, they have a great food and drinks menu, it has a chilled out atmosphere, lovely open fire in the winter with comfy leather chesterfield sofas, and their cocktails are amazing! The garden is lovely, very classical, they host wedding receptions, and have barbecues, Live music,... More

We were here last night, the place is usually very nice. However last night as we where handed our menus which look very tempting only to be told by the very embarrassed waitress that half of the menu was unavailable. And on a smallish menu put our choices to about 4 main courses. Before you commit to dining there I'd... More

Really looking forward to a rare family gathering on a Friday night only to be met with " that's not available" when asking about most of the menu.No fish starters were available and with only about 8 main meal choices the following were not available- lobster,seabass, ribeye and fillet steak. What a dissapointment! The poor waitress seemed embarrassed but a... More

We tried to have a meal for six today for a really special Father's Day and after one and half hours walked out as no food was ever served despite several complaints and false promises. An absolute and complete shambles, never experienced anything like it in my life and you should avoid this mismanaged joke at the earliest opportunity.

Always enjoyed going to the Oathill. Haven't been in a long time so thought I'd try it out again for my birthday. Cocktails great, service great food was very disappointing. For the amount you are paying you would of thought to get abit more on your plate and get what you ordered exactly the way you asked for it. I... More
