Rang and booked this for my husband's birthday, after seeing excellent review in our local paper. And it did not disappoint. Firstly after not seeing the reservation time I could manage the kind gentleman squeezed us in to accomodate our timetable, then we arrived to a super table for two looking out over the valley. The Service was excellent -... More

After recommendations to visit from friends, my wife and I went for dinner for a birthday celebration. We weren't disappointed, quite simply everything was perfect. The food was amazing, the menu wasn't extensive, but there was plenty of variety so I am sure most people would be happy. The staff were excellent, they were very knowledgeable about everything, it is... More

The pony and trap is a fantastic restaurant. I will make sure that when I am passing that I stop in. If you're flying from Bristol and need a meal you need to get and visit the pony and trap. Everything about this place is faultless and the food is incredible.

We visited The Pony & Trap on recommendation from friends, to celebrate our anniversary and hubby's birthday and we weren't disappointed. For every course the food was absolutely sublime. We started with pigeon hearts & livers served with a rich sauce which the husband was extremely impressed with as it was his first time of trying anything pigeon related. We... More

We recently visited for Sunday lunch and had the beef and pork. The pork was mainly a rind of fat, the beef was very difficult to cut and the potatoes were like rocks. It was also all very salty. We were given extra sharp knives to help get through the meal but it was hard work to eat it. The... More

Went to the Pony and Trap the other night with my boyfriend, we both had the pigeon breast to start which was amazing and then followed with the Monk Fish Tikka for me and the Duck breast for my boyfriend. Both convinced we had ordered better than the other as they were both fantastic. My boyfriend then had pudding and... More

The Pony & Trap never fails to deliver a unique gastronomic experience and it is well worth the effort to get there. The staff are very attentive and take pains to ensure that the dining experience is first class. Portions are reasonable and the presentation is excellent.
