The food was of a good quality when it arrived, however the staff did not know the menu, and took a long time to find the answers to our questions the kept changing their minds - if the manger reads my review I suggest you get your staff to understand the menu your chef is cooking - however there was...

Went for a casual dinner date and I was sorely disappointed with the standard of the main and dessert. Particularly the dessert, which seemed like an Iceland defrosted selection. The price point didn't reflect the quality of food served. I had heard so many good reviews that I chanced it for date night. It fell short of expectations for me... More

I had a burger & chips here. Very good quality, reasonably priced and excellent service. Has a great garden to sit out in. Good for work lunch, taking the kids to or evening meal. Lovely place and all you could want for the price.

Food is good, service just ok. A little expensive but what we had to eat we couldn't fault. Only one criticism, staff seemed as though they were all messing about with each other and too busy having a laugh instead of clearing tables and serving

Having never visited the Hillside Inn before, I was extremely excited to try the Sunday menu. Two of us opted to share the roast platter. Unfortunately, this was simply a slither of each meat per person (lamb, beef and turkey). Perhaps I'm a little hard to please but I expected something much more high quality than this. To top it...

When I booked this I thought it was a traditional, country pub... ...nope... ...bog standard chain pub with no sole. Service was fine, mind you, but menu was factory produced.

Stopped here for a quick drink and a snack. Very happy. Lovely sunny seating area out the front but close to the road. Good atmosphere inside. Excellent food and friendly staff. Would definitely go back.

Booked a table, which was lucky as it was full not long after we arrived. Within milliseconds of arriving our waitress was asking if we wanted drinks, we told her we would think, a couple of minutes later back she came asking again! We ordered our mains. My partner had some roast lamb fat with a bit of meat attached!... More
