Because of a wedding taking place, the restaurant couldn't handle the load and our food took a lot longer than normal but it was excellent when it did arrive.

Dear Julieaheaton Thank you for taking the time to review your dining experience with us. Without knowing which date you dined i can only advise that weddings are served from a different kitchen leaving the main kitchen to serve the Bistro, i can only surmise that we where busy in the Bistro the day you dined with us and my...

We had occasion to eat here three times recently and we were suitably impressed. There is a lovely welcoming ambiance, the staff are friendly and the food is tasty. The portions are a little on the large side for us but most people seemed to be managing fine. The menu is fairly traditional with dishes such as prawn cocktail (delicious)... More

We've been here quite a few times, both during the week & on a Sunday, and we've never been disappointed. Lovely food, great service and big portion sizes-just need bigger plates!

Had an over night stay here for a friends wedding. Have to say it was 1 of the best wedding venues we have been in for a while. The food both at the wedding and breakfast was lovely. The staff are friendly and helpful.

The Belfray is probably my favourite place for Sunday lunch. Its a pleasure to experience the hospitality and efficiency of this place. They serve carvery until 7pm on a Sunday and the fact that the people just keep on coming all day speaks for itself. I also love the warm and cosy atmosphere here.
