Booked a first Sunday lunch here in the restaurant. Had previously called in for bar meals and have never been disappointed with the quality of the food served. Our Sunday lunch was excellent with good quality locally produced food presented in a first class manner. The service was also of a high standard so much so we booked a further... More

We gave up heading for the coast for fish and chips on the last Saturday of July after an hour doing one mile on the A64 and found the loveliest fish and chips at this delightful place in a pretty village. We got a warm greeting from the bar man who offered us food and drink and showed us to... More

I visited with two friends for lunch and the food was wonderful. It's great to see a lot of locally sourced food on the menu. The staff are very accommodating and attentive, nothing is too much trouble. We had the halibut on the specials which was beautiful and the dessert, champagne sorbet with mixed berries and elderflower jelly, was gorgeous,... More

We enjoyed our dinner on the evening we ate at the Worsley Arms. Most of the meat, fish and vegetables are localy sourced and our meals were very tasty.

The hotel is quite charming due to its good location and old world ambience but it could do with a bit of a makeover. The evening we stayed was hot wet and muggy and the windows would not stay open so we had to jam them with various bits and pieces. Due to old plumbing the shower temperature was hard... More

A bad experience. We were offered two main courses in our budget, shepherds pie and fish pie. Shepherds pie turned out to be made with beef mince(cottage pie chef) and the fish pie contained very little fish, The staff hovered over us while we were eating and we felt they wanted to rush us out. Not an enjoyable experience.

Lunch midweek for 21 people, choice of main course fish pie or shepherds pie (made with beef) starter or dessert £12.50. Made you feel a nuisance staff hovering about all the time. We ordered custard to go with dessert before we arrived you would have thought we had asked for the moon and when it did arrive it was so... More

This meal booking was made with a Travelzoo voucher so, in one sense, we weren't expecting too much. In the event, we got a much better meal than we anticipated - starters of duck terrine and foie gras and a main of salmon with shellfish were individual dishes, full of taste and freshly prepared. This was quite definitely not the... More
