First time visitor. Was staying nearby and decided to go for dinner with 3 friends. It was a quiet mid week evening but we were warmly welcomed and menu was very good indeed. Chose 2 bottles of a very good Malbec which was served at a perfect temperature.

I think my first review of Martin's Pond was one of my first for Trip Advisor, several years ago. I have been looking forward to our first visit since the recent reopening. I wanted it to be fantastic and it was! Melanie's welcome is as warm as ever.. we enjoyed trying some of the specials - to get a feel... More

Went for lunch with a friend who said she'd heard the food was good... And it was!! Unfortunately, it was slightly underattended when we went (19th march) which made the atmosphere a bit 'empty', but the landlady was really nice (and a bit of a 'dish' herself!) The burger and chips was absolutely delicious, as was my friend's 'winter vegetables... More

I understand that the restaurant has been closed until recently having a revamp. But glad to find it open again and as good as I remembered it. On this occasion we were offered a table in the conservatory and as it was early on a Saturday evening, we found the place quite quiet and the staff were very attentive. As... More

We had been here for a midweek lunch before the recent closure and had been impressed, but not this time. Serving staff were keen and pleasant but not very knowledgeable about the menu. All three of us had the roasts and both the Lamb and the Beef were not very tasty. On a blind tasting, I'm not sure that I... More

Hi Wendy Many thanks for your compliments regarding our food. Apologies that you were left unattended and that it wasn't made clear that we have only just reopened after being closed for 6 weeks for refurbishment and that we are still ironing out a few bits and pieces. Our official launch night is Saturday the 7th March We performed this... More
