We had the pleasure of staying at The Baskerville AGAIN on 21/7/15. We were met by Amber who was absolutely fantastic and so pleasant. In Kevin's absence she made us feel so welcome and our check in was smooth as silk. She is a real star. We decided to have lunch which was first class, plenty of it and reasonably... More

I use to come to the Baskerville quite regularly but hadn't been for a while, it was a friends birthday and so thought we would be a nice occasion to come back. We booked in advance a table inside but as it was such a glorious day Kevin had kindly moved us outside into their beautiful beer garden. We came... More

The staff at the baskerville always make you feel very welcome and the service is outstanding. The manager in particular is full of energy and enthusiasm. Easily accessible by road and rail, and regularly visited... More

I went to the Baskerville for Father's Day with my son. The service, as always, was excellent and food to match. We both had the Chargrilled chicken satay skewers, my son had the Homemade 8oz Aberdeen Angus beef burger, and I had 28 day, dry aged roast rump of Aberdeen Angus beef with all the trimmings. For dessert we had... More

We opted to share the asparagus as a starter, but, it was so good we has to order another! My burger was the best ever, delicious and my partner chose the crispy pork belly, also delicious, we finished... More

Well cooked food, but strange over-use of oranges on the menu! Deep fried cockles were an interesting novelty and it was good to see samphire on the menu. The puddings share plate is fabulous, but even sharing there's plenty!

We were most impressed and very much enjoyed our meal at the Baskerville. The service was attentive and food of high quality. The dining room was also lovely as was the view of the back yard gardens.

Really delicious food and great service. We had a group of six booked at last minute and were really welcomed. Lovely food, wine and beers served throughout the night, ending in Irish coffees. Would definitely recommend. P.s you must ask about the manager's hand stand skills!!!

Had a wonderful evening here , with my wife, and we were both impressed with the ambiance ,service and excellent food. I thoroughly enjoyed my sea bass with the carrot and fennel salad. We could not recommend this establishment high enough.
