Fantastic restaurant with wonderful atmosphere and open log fire, wonderful on a cold day. I am vegan and the food was absolutely excellent, lots of choice and very tasty. My husband also had a wonderful fish meal, so everyone was more than happy!! Jan was very smiley and friendly and made us feel extremely welcome. Very highly recommended.

Booked for Sunday lunch and was not disappointed. The menu was varied and the food was fresh, well cooked and tasty. The service was excellent and the staff were helpful and efficient. Our waiter, Andy , was particularly friendly. It was a little lacking in atmosphere as there were only a few diners but I would definitely recommend this restaurant... More

We had a very friendly reception and attentive service throughout. The food was okay but not outstanding and expensive for what it was.

Went here last Friday night for my partners birthday and the staff had decorated the table and made an effort. The food was fresh and was delicious. A wide range of choice. Having been here previously I can also say they cater for the gluten free customer very well. Great night will be returning. Thank you.

I went with my Family for my Birthday on Sunday. The food was lovely everybody enjoyed the food, it was great that they could cater for the vegans and dairy free's in the family. Would definitely recommend the restaurant and especially the Anslow Pie!

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Glad to read you enjoyed the Anslow Pie, as our signature dish it does 'fly' out. Come and see us again soon. More

Great food, welcoming staff. An assortment of menus available to cater for every diet. We are vegan so find it difficult to find places to eat. Terrific choice of meals on offer. The food is tasty, fresh and well prepared.

I recently had a birthday Sunday lunch for around 15 people, which was excellent in every way. We all met at the bar first for a drink, and that was the first pleasant experience. There were three excellent real ales on - from Dancing Duck, Titanic and Tollgate? All well kept and expertly poured by Sara. (Plum Porter was fantastic!)... More

I booked a table here with my girlfriend, and the place was really nice. We had a selection of beers and drinks to choose from, and the waitress there was really nice and friendly. The food was clearly freshly made, and was tasty. I would recommend coming here, I'm a vegetarian and there was loads to choose from. My girlfriend... More
