I booked easily and quickly online, all of the staff were really polite and extremely helpful. I would actually say that its the one of best dining experiences I've had in a very, very long time. Everywhere is clean and tidy, the food is absolutely delicious, well presented, plenty of it, and very reasonably priced. The table service was excellent,... More

This only needs to be a short review. I have visited the wayfarer many times and will return again in the future. It is an excellent restaurant with beautiful settings. It is perfect for any occasion. I am hard to please where food is concerned however I never have any complaints with this venue. Quite simply the wayfarer is excellent... More

Top quality country pub, you can tell it is popular as car park is always full on a Saturday night! Have always had a great meal and it is good value, Sunday Beef roast is just amazing. I live locally and have been to various local pubs and restaurants, but this one is pure class, great food, great staff and... More

I've been working locally for a couple of months and asked the hotel I'm staying at for some suggestions on somewhere nice to take my wife close by. The Manager recommended The Wayfarer - I could have gone back and kissed her! I scored major brownie points off my wife - the atmosphere was brilliant, the lighting was quite romantic... More

It is with disappointment I am writing this but following my last visit with work colleagues 22 January having pre booked our meals well in advance I found it very disappointing to have waited almost 2 hours for the first course, this was then followed by a very lengthy wait for the main course. Due to not finishing until after... More

As regulars to the Wayfarer we were not disappointed with the standard of food and atmosphere. We were a party of 11 and had a lovely square table so it was easy to chat across the table and no one was left out. We had pre ordered our food from a restricted menu. The service was adequate nothing more. It... More

I visited here last night with my boyfriend, we don't go out that often so when we do we like to go somewhere nice and treat ourselves. I've been to the other restaurants of this chain but never this one so we'd thought we'd give it a try, then i looked at the reviews on here and quite a few... More
