The better half and me decided on an easy mid week supper. Its been beautifully redone since the floods in December 2015. The food was lovely. I had the cod, which I had to ask the better half to help me finish, whilst he had the sea bream. Staff are so helpful and friendly. A definate must-try.

Went recently for dinner to see changes since refurbishment. I had heard they had revised their menu and upped their game food wise, no longer offering a mammoth multi paged menu but a more simpler straight forward menu. The menu is much improved- on paper- and the decor looks great. Service was friendly but the food was as I remember... More

After the floods the terrace has returned to its usual high standard, however booking is advisable . Food choice and ambiance is really great.

Popped in for lunch in Terrace Bar to be told that you can't just pop in any more - reservation needed!!!! Thankfully Enzo found us a table & produced the new food menu. What a dilemma, nothing I could eat the sizzling dishes having been taken off the menu. Ended up with a sandwich & chips, which were greasy &... More

We ate here all the time before the floods and we're excited to see The Trout and The Terrace reopen but what a disappointment. The menu, which previously was fab and had loads of choices, is now much changed and smaller. Some of the more popular items from previously, such as chicken strips, no longer appear on it. The decor... More

At last it's opened. This has consistently been our favourite local restaurant for a number of years, but had been badly damaged in the floods. Now all repaired, very nicely may I add, it's back open. There has been a change in the menu but the food is still well cooked and presented great. Most of the same staff are... More
