No question aobut the quality of this experience. Touring the Wolds, we ate here on two consecutive nights following a local recommendation on the 'Beat the Clock' offer. Superb hot food, wonderful service - about the best we have encountered anywhere - and we eat out a lot in many diverse restaurants and areas - and would always eat here... More

Was greeted by a friendly face that offered to either take us to our table straight away or sit in the lounge like area by the bar to wait for the rest of our party to arrive. We chose to sit in comfort by the bar and order drinks. After the whole party arrived (6 guests in total) we remained... More

We had booked for 2 people for wedding anniversary meal at 6.30pm. We arrived early and were pleasantly surprised that we were offered their 'Beat the clock' menu which actually finishes at 6.30pm. We didn't have to mention it, the very pleasant young waitress offered to check to check it would be OK after we were seated. The restaurant was... More

We turned up without a reservation as it was early evening on a Wednesday in late August. Two of us and three people who had come in just before us were seated without fuss and welcomed warmly. The place was filling up as we were seated. Excellent friendly service from the two waitresses. The food was well presented, quick to... More

We enjoyed a very good meal at Shakesby's. It was quiet by London standards - on a Tuesday in August we were the last guests by 9:30 - but the food was perfect. Medium rare beef Wellington with crisp pastry. Sausage and mash, which they were happy to do from the early bird menu. And a great rib eye steak... More

Arranged to meet a friend to eat with a plan to try the 'beat the clock' menu. The restaurant was empty, we were not offered beat the clock. We were offered a table at 7:15 pm ( we arrived at 5:20) with a disdainful look from the bar waitress. Will not be going back or attempting to try their food.... More
