I cannot tell you how many times I have driven past this restaurant and not even given it a second look. Well, shame on me. My wife and I had lunch there the other day, on a recommendation from a friend, and what a joy it turned out to be. The menu gave a reasonable range of choices and we... More

Had a lovely lunch from the fixed lunch menu today and it was brilliant. Starter of the black pudding was outstanding followed by a excellent steak pie. Has to be tried.

We struggled to choose from the menu because there were so many good options. The trio of meats was huge and every plate was clean. Good atmosphere and staff were really helpful. Well worth the taxi trip down, will definitely be back!

We were promptly brought menus and ordered drinks. For our meals, I ordered the garlic and chilli tiger prawns to start and a fillet steak while my... More

Another excellent meal at the Minishant Inn - on Christmas Eve it was very busy and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the staff. Great atmosphere and we weren't rushed. Recommendations were helpful and the food was excellent for all courses that the 3 of us had. Only downside was too many dishes to choose from!
