Been there with my wife for a dinner. The service was fast and the staff accommodated us in a very romantic area despite we didn't booked in advance. They were really professional and the food was amazing. Lovely terrace to enjoy a drink

Even on a rainy Bank Holiday Sunday, we found a warm welcome at the Ostrich. I hadn’t visited before the revamp, but would love to go back for a meal in the outside space. There are jolly deckchairs (some suitable for 2, if you’re slim...More
