We used a Groupon to give this place a try. Very impressed. The breakfast was excellent value and well cooked. A little difficult to find but please persevere, you won't be disappointed.

We ate the Engine House for the first time as we had a voucher for breakfast and drinks for 2. The food was lovely as was the tea. The prices were value for money even if you pay full price so we will be returning. I would like to come back again soon for a weekend evening meal and drinks.

Visited here this evening. Only one other couple in at the same time as us, but there was still a pleasant atmosphere. MI had the rump steak and my partner had the jalapeño burger. Presentation was good and so was the food. Had a brownie for dessert which was nice. My only criticism is that they didn't have cream or... More

Service was first class here and my salad was lovely. Their menu choices are quite limited though. It's not as busy as cross keys or midnight bell which means it is easier to get a table.

Absolutely superb! Bit of a strange location and hard to work out what this place is....but its a little gem! Just hope it stays open as we were the only people in there. The rump steak and trimmings were sublime highly recommended

I met my daughter on her lunch hour, we arrived shortly after 12. There were 3 tables occupied when we arrived. We ordered 2 burgers and a tuna sandwich for my youngest. Unfortunately we didn't get to have lunch together, due to the time it took for our food to arrive. At 12:55 My daughter requested her burger to be... More

Ate here as a couple on a Saturday evening. Nice location although it would be hard to stumble across without knowing it was there. We had the steak main which was really good and surprisingly cheap. Service could have been slightly faster, however the owner (super nice guy) explained that they were understaffed that evening. Besides, he did a great... More

Bought a Groupon for breakfast with drinks for two which was just shy of £10. Called in for breakfast this morning with a friend and left very satisfied... Between us we ordered Eggs Benedict and Eggs Benedict Royal (salmon used instead of ham), fresh orange and coffee. Great quality ingredients, perfect portion size and lovely fresh coffee. Fresh orange juice... More

Visited here for dinner last Friday evening. The food was excellent. My Mum and I had the risotto which was delicious and my Husband and Dad went for the beast burgers which were huge! The homemade chips were superb! We all enjoyed everything we had and it was a bargain on a Groupon voucher! We were the only customers in... More

Used the Engine house instead of paying for breakfast in the Hotel as was staying at the doubletree and breakfast was a bit pricey, breakfast was fantastic and brilliant service. Will definitely go again p.s. try the pancakes!!!!
