Came about a month ago but didn't have chance to review. Would just like to say how beautiful our food was. Each meal was presented so well and really have to accommodate the creme brûlée! The best desert I have tasted - we will be back!

We were taken here by friends who had travelled from Scarborough (half way for us both) for Sunday Lunch. What a gem of a place, great beer, lovely village setting, great choice on the menu and excellent service (not too rushed, not too slow - I'm sounding like Goldilocks, aren't I!). The starters were excellent (smoked mackerel pate and soup),... More

Visited with friends pleasant setting and staff. Food the normal pub grub but with a twist. I had a small (so it said pretty hefty portion size) fish and chips which was tasty. Chips a bit greasy. Friends all enjoyed their food.

An excellent time was had by our whole party when we celebrated family birthdays. Fantastic food, good service and a cosy welcoming ambience. Would recommend this pub for when you want to eat out for a special event.

Service is so slow it is virtually non existent and we struggled to find something to order as very autumnal heavy choices other than fish and chips, which you can get anywhere. Shame as the weather was too nice for that. Shame it could be much better and the staff were obviously nice people. Lots of grumbling customers, to the... More

I have lived very close to Colton for nearly two decades and I have loved the fact that we have had a really top class restaurant close by. But I visited with my brother and his wife this evening. For starters, my scallop dish was very good. My Brother ordered the carpaccio which was a slice of raw aged beef... More

The quality of the food doesn't back up the presentation. Chipped beer glass Pepper pot had 4 blocked holes out of 5 Wooden platter had a large crack in it. Waitress staff were very good but the Lady who we assume was the restaurant manager was rude, unfriendly and didn't seem to take any interest in her work
