We went here for our wedding anniversary at lunch time. The welcome was friendly and the service on the whole was fine. The starter and main course were good but I felt that the puddings were not as good as other restaurants. The lemon tart lacked lemon flavour but that's just my personal view. On the whole we had a... More

Excellent service, excellent food, excellent atmosphere, excellent decor. Just excellent! Second time we've been, thought it couldn't get any better but it did!! The best steak and the chocolate brownie is amazing!

the food was really excellent and the staff seemed very nice but what should have been an enjoyable experience was marred by the very close proximity of the next table, they where so close, myself and my partner felt we could not talk freely as it was like sitting at a table for 4, unfortunately the other couple didn't feel...

Neighbours had recommended On The Hill to us, and last night we went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our neighbours were right and we were not disappointed. Having had lunch with friends, we could only manage one course. It was a pleasant surprise to have a tray of appetisers on the table, as part of the service--olives, two different breads,... More

I visited this restaurant on a recommendation, and was not disappointed. We had a very warm welcome from the staff, and were served promptly with drinks and food alike. The menu has a good selection and is presented to a very high standard, i had fish dishes for both starter and main, and they really were "to die for" dishes... More

Excellent food - fish dishes a speciality, but meat and vegetarian options equally yummy. Rowan, the owner and chef sources local seasonal produce, and offers a varied, creative menu. My husband is a very picky eater, so for him to want to return to ANY eatery is an accolade in itself!! Friendly atmosphere. Customers made to feel very welcome and... More

I was completely shocked when I walked in. Beautiful place, with history and character. We had a private dinning room to our selves. The food was highly presented, the red Merlot wine was gorgeous and the chocolate desert was absolutely yummy!!! Staff were extremely friendly. Looking forward to going again soon :-)

My partner and I booked to go here a few days in advance and could get a table for either 6:30 or 8:30. We opted for 6:30 as I don't think I could wait until 8:30. I thought it would be empty but there were plenty of other diners in the beautiful building. We had a bottle of wine, and... More

First time visit to this restaurant. Very well appointed in a 16th century building which, although renovated, still displays the original beams and some stonework inside. So welcoming and helpful, serving meals o n two floors. Would recommend booking your meal in advance, as it was very busy even on a Tuesday lunchtime. We are going back next week.
