I just love Wyken Hall .... 15 mins drive from our home and a lovely place to pop out to in winter when you want to get out the house. The shop always has something new and the restaurant is lovely. Sometimes a little over-priced for what you get, but the quality is always good. I always bring visitors here... More

Food also took a little time to arrive, perhaps because it appeared to be prepared and cooked for each order. It appears to be a place where people go for a linger and a natter. Not necessarily a...

This morning we had the most delicious eggs florentine and pancakes. The setting is gorgeous, sophisticated and the staff lovely. I really want to say it is a brilliant place to visit. But there was one significant low clouding our brunch, a live chicken/hen. At a table near us, we were sitting inside, a woman was cradling a bird. She... More

It was some years since we last ate here but we had forgotten just how good the food is. The menu has a strong emphasis on locally sourced ingredients which are used to create inventive, delicious dishes. Highlights included a tender pigeon breast served with a fruity couscous, turbot with french beans, pea puree and saffron potatoes and smoked prawns... More

I was in a party of 4 who dined there on Friday. The ambience was superb and I have never experienced anything close to it. Food is sourced locally in season. Started with the guinea fowl and gammon hock terrine. Main course was a special steak that had been marinated for days - melted in the mouth accompanied with Parmesan... More

Anyway setting beautiful and if anyone wants to know where heaven is on earth try this after th woodland walk in summer. Will... More

We paid a visit to this restaurant for a Saturday lunch. We mainly came to visit the small but very good farmers market, which is here every Saturday from 0900 to 1300. We decided to sit inside as the sun was fierce outside. Just a tip that if you like to sit outside, it's best to come early as they... More
