“Lunch with Ruth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Have started meeting up here with a long time friend (it's her local) for lunch. Very impressed with the special lunch menu. Lots to choose from and always well presented and well cooked. Looking forward to next week for another visit.

“Three visits in one week!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I have always been impressed with the food at the Toad, but lately i feel they have excelled themselves.

I went 3 times last week with my partner, twice just the two of us and once that week with the family and even went again for sunday dinner the following week with the family again!

they have a fantastic lunch deal menu for only £5 and a dinner menu for £10, we tried both at different times and was very impressed, the quality and poritions were very reasonable. i recommend these menus very much. The staff always make us feel welcome.

The sunday dinner was brill too! (except the melbu toast for the pate was quite stale, that being the only problem!) if you pass i recommend The Toad.

Thank you for your review. Yes we all love the home made biscuits but unfortunately they don't like our waistlines ( i've got one stuffed in my mouth as i'm writing this reply haha). Look forward to seeing at the Toad in the future
