A friend suggested having a meal here, good choice. On booking the meal I was asked what time we wanted the table for and asked for 8pm, the person who I spoke to asked if we could make it earlier as they were booked for Xmas parties, changed to 7 pm, glad we did. We will definitely be going back,... More

Every year we have a family Christmas meal for around 20 of us, and it can be a challenge especially at that time of year to find an establishment that can cater for that number, get all the food out on time and make sure everyone has a good time. The Beeches did us proud this year. Very atmospheric pub/restaurant,... More

We were staying locally for a Christmas shopping weekend and stumbled across this restaurant/pub early on a Monday evening. What a treat, excellent food with a good selection of wines. Definitely "hit the spot" and reasonably priced.

Three of us had lunch at the Beeches last week. We have often driven past this place, always remarking that "We must give it a try!". and we did. I am glad that we went. The food was very good indeed, the beer .......Under the Tree, it was called, brewed locally, was as good as you will find anywhere. Service... More

We had a lovely meal at the Beeches, it was quiet when we first arrived but soon became very busy with a number of large tables. Having enjoyed a fabulous starter platter and main meal being a table of just two we seemed to merge into the back ground. After being asked if we would like to see the dessert... More

Having visited The Beeches over the years,we have always enjoyed its well deserved reputation as one of the few 'fine dining' establishments in the area. However, under new management, the place has taken a bit of a dive which was unexpected and sad. The food is still very good, although a little 'samey' (if that makes sense. eg, the majority...

Very welcoming, good food choices but not too big a menu. The staff are nice, especially Lara. We've been going there since it was a fairly formal restaurant and it has made a successful transition to a more informal venue.

I've lived near this restaurant for nearly 12 years and I had never visited nor had friends mentioned it before, so I naturally assumed it probably wasn't very good restaurant. I was completely wrong and I wish I had visited sooner. The staff were phenomenal, they were so welcoming, helpful and funny! I noticed they were exceptionally friendly to each... More
