A great evening.

This was our first visit to this restaurant - discovered through the reviews on Trip Advisor - and we were certainly not disappointed. Excellence seems to be the key word here. Thanks to all at On The Hill for a superb evening.

We are ex-Wrens and we meet for lunch occasionally. On the Hill was booked because it is a convenient drive for each of us and we had heard it was very good. It was good - outstandingly good. Everything on the menu was different and exciting. I plumped for one of the vegetarian dishes - the sweet potato and leek... More

We were recommended this small restaurant as we were meeting friends for lunch and it was conveniently situated for us all. I must say that we were absolutely delighted with the recommendation. It had a lovely friendly atmosphere, friendly polite staff, and the food was delicious, as well as being very reasonably priced. We were enjoying ourselves so much that... More

After visiting this place, I wanted to re-calibrate all my previous reviews so that this one stood out far above most of the rest. The food was truly outstanding.

We travelled 300 miles for a family celebration lunch and it was worth every mile! The setting is lovely, the staff amazing and the food phenomenal.....Wish we loved nearer so we could return on a regular basis.

This is nothing short of an extraordinary restaurant. The quality and presentation of their food is of such a high standard that there is little wonder that you need to book in advance. We were a party of 10, some were held up on route arriving up to half an hour later than expected. The staff calmly dealt with matters... More

The food here is excellent, staff friendly and helpful. You do need to pre-book as it is a very popular place. Can feel a little cramped and some of the chairs are past there use by date.

The food was absolutely delicious. We had a party of 12 people and everybody was delighted at the quality of their meal. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. A definite MUST and we will certainly be going back.
