Fabulous tasty Sunday lunch. Set menu for about £10 for 2 courses. I had mushrooms in a whitewine & cheese sauce which was truly delicious, followed by roast beef dinner, Served with plenty of seasonal vegetables. highly recommend if in the area.

Slightly out of the main area but well worth finding, reasonable priced drinks and food which was excellent! It can get very busy so may be an idea to book, the only slight niggle is that, maybe they could do with a couple more staff but hey, maybe somebody was ill?? All in all great tasting food and good value.

Excellent food and service. A shame there weren't more people at this excellent restaurant. Very good value for the quality of food. Set a little outside of the centre it is missed by many. Make a little more effort to walk a few more yards and you won't be disappointed. We then had a drink in the up downstairs which... More

We booked this restaurant for Sunday Lunch as they had a specially priced menu for either two or three courses. The food was excellent, well cooked and presented. Was one of the best tasting meals I had had in a long while. I had as a main course roast beef and my husband had venison. Could find no fault. Will... More

Evening meal with friends. Decided to go to Beresfords as other restaurant were fully booked and Fat Olives taken over by new owners which didn't appeal. Chose cumbrian Sausage with bubble and Squeak - which was excellent. Food was served piping hot. Would recommend. Went to the downstairs bar later which was good. Just a pity it doesn't get busier...

Good choice of food and excellent value for money. Lovely downstairs bar serving a range of drinks and cocktails - only criticism would be no sparkling wine available by the glass - could maybe look at serving the mini bottles of prosecco? Definitely worth a visit, not as boisterous as some pubs in the village but very welcoming.

Visited recently whilst on holiday in the area. The Sunday lunch menu is pretty comprehensive as is the wine list. Service was very efficient and friendly. Would have liked to return, having had a quick look at the a la carte, but, unfortunately they are closed on Monday and often Tuesday during the quiet period so worth ringing to check... More

Visited randomly, without prior knowledge of the place, by walking in from the street. Greeted by the restaurant owner/head chef at the bar, who was friendly and hospitable, explained the menu and told us everything about the facilities, such as a newly opened bar downstairs (separate from the main restaurant). Kitchen is an open type, but it is not intrusive,... More

We arrived just as the "early bird" offer was went out of time. The waitress was quite happy to take our order and give us the offer. Our starters of mushrooms in a garlic sauce arrived promptly and was very good. Our mains of chicken breast followed equally promptly, and equally acceptable. After a suitable pause we ordered puds, again... More

We had a lovely 'hot' meal. Service good. Business can't be owned by the waitress who turned other customers away at 8pm when open until 10.00pm. I would have been furious!
