Dinner for two

Treated ourselves just because our children were both away. Hadn't visited for many years and it was even better than I remembered. Drinks on the lawn as it was a lovely evening, followed by three courses.

My boyfriend and I decided to go for a quite meal. We wanted somewhere to just talk and relaxed. This is exactly what we got. We had a lovely meal with a lovely view to the garden. Was the perfect meal and not that bad of prices for what we got.

We have visited this restaurant regularly over the past 15 years and have always viewed Redcoats amongst our special places to celebrate various occasions. Sadly, our last visit left us feeling very disappointed so it will probably be the last time we eat here. The food was overdone and finding a piece of plastic in the ice-cream at the end... More

Dear Janet, Firstly thank-you for your comments. I'm very sorry that we let you down on your recent visit. I apologise for the piece of plastic film that you found on your ice cream, this was due to a chef not taking proper care and attention. We carefully select all of our suppliers and are particularly proud of our partnership... More

Had an evening meal in the conservatory. Food was excellent and the conservatory was nice and summery, if a bit harshly lit later in the evening. We had a lovely evening here - well worth a visit for dinner

Visited with a group on a hot Sunday afternoon. The plan was to have afternoon tea in the restaurant. It became apparent that the restaurant had been double-booked with a wedding party, so we were set up in the garden. Luckily the weather was good. The food was shocking. The sandwiches were sweating, with the prawn/seafood ones looking like they... More

The staff were friendly and professional with the food being of a high standard and well presented. Value for money isn't bad either. Budget on £50 a head if you go for three courses and a bottle or two of wine. They have a good selection of spirits for those who prefer to savour a good single Malt or like... More

We have recently held two family parties at Redcoats and both times the staff were excellent, the food was brilliant and the service was what you'd expect. It has a couple of great rooms for private dining and small parties, and when the weather is good the grounds allow for extra space for guests to wonder and enjoy the scenery.... More
