As usual the Orchard Bar and Restaurant keeps up its high quality status and I've never had to complain about the food or ambience. There stir fries and noodle dishes are to die for as is their homemade burgers. The staff are quick, efficient and friendly. Prices are very reasonable and there are TVs everywhere if you like all forms... More

The museum across the road was closing for lunch so I called in for a mineral. Three staff messing with a till float behind the bar and I was ignored. I never got acknowledged or served. I'm not expecting table service, I stood at the bar. It's not like they were busy, only two customers watching horse racing. The pub... More

Just a quick coffee and a peek over the fence at the new Courthouse, but the Orchard still has that old Irish pub atmosphere. Nice if you enjoy a genuine local tavern, with genuine local taverners. Good staff, good coffee, sun shining...we're getting to like this place.

We went on Friday night, they have a new menu which is very good value. I got the bbq chicken wings, they were delicious. Everyone else was happy with their food and drinks. The cocktails are a speciality I would recommend getting one or two. great bar and good atmosphere

We ate here last month very good food at a very reasonable price. There was 15 of us in the party and the service was very good.

Met up with a group of friends on s Sunday evening and food was average at best. Ordered chicken Caesar salad but it was quite bland. Very little flavour. Ordered dessert which was baileys cheesecake which was the worst cheesecake I've ever tasted. Indeed the ice-cream wasn't much better. When we informed the waiter when he lifted our dishes he...

Having worked in high road area for over a year the Orchard became a home away from home. I was a a regular for the lunch time carvery, and it was exactly what one would expect. Plenty of food, choice and at an excellent price. And the girls who work there are lovely, helpful and always served with a smile,... More

I didn't particularly like the place but the staff made up for my initial grumpiness...helpful, friendly, witty. Food was good, atmosphere relaxed with the car safely parked out the back, I'm happy. Returned a day or two later with intent to park but this time to visit the excellent museum across the road...to find that the car park was roped... More
