Had a great Birthday Dinner here tonight. The food was excellent lots of choices on the menu. My favourite is the Chicken Pie but tonight I had the Oriental Beef with Noodles from the Specials Board and it was delicious. Highly recommend The Hideaway Ian & Sheila and their staff are excellent hosts.

Stopped off for lunch. Staff were friendly, looked clean. Food was disappointing.... Mash was lumpy, burgers not that tasty, pricey for food and not really worth the money. I'm not sure I would return or recommend.

Tried for first time this week should have visited quicker and more often, warm welcome, great service, great menu, fantastic fresh food. Have eaten in places all over the world and this place is on my top 10 list now for good wholesome food. No need to go to restaurants that reheat frozen packet food or microwave mush anymore ....
