As a company we take people here all the time and it has never failed to impress. In the years that we have been doing this i have yet to have a bad meal. No matter what night of the week (except Monday of course), the atmosphere is never lacking. highly recommeded.

Had a meal here with family last week. Great place and excellent food, staff very friendly, especially Sam who was serving us. It was very busy but nothing was a problem. Would definitely recommend.

This is a gem of a place to dine. We went as 2 couples and from the moment we walked in we felt so welcome but not overly! The food was excellent, nothing was too much and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Wish we'd gone here before and will definitely go again if in the area. Well done... More

Lovely, welcoming ambience with excellent food. We had the asparagus to start which was beautifully cooked and then the lamb and the duck. I was too full for pudding but I was assured that the chocolate torte was fabulous. The service was a little slow but they were very busy and we had plenty of time so it didn't matter.... More

Ken and his team are fantastic! The quality of food, drink and service is second to none. Worth a trip out if you're anywhere near.

I live locally and know Kenny and Fantails very well. Being so local and traveling so much with work I rarely visit. I fly to the US tomorrow so my wife and I drove out for a bite to eat. We arrived without booking and the staff were extremely inviting, kind and helpful. We sat in the garden and we... More

Such a fantastic idea. Buy drink and have free tapas. The food on offer was delicious and catered to all tastes. Sweet potato chips and dip were brought to the table and once finish more was brought. I couldn't fault the service or the atmosphere. The restaurant itself has a cosy, friendly feeling. I will definatly be visiting again in... More

I recently won a champagne lunch for 4 at fantails in a local magazine, firstly Kenny and the 2 ladies who served us were very charming and friendly, the food was local and cooked to perfection, in a clean comfortable relaxing atmosphere, we hear this place is well supported and after 20 years in the same hands that's quite an...

Stopped here for dinner with the family at 6 pm and thankfully they had a table for 6 available. We were seated in the bar whilst our drink orders were taken and we were given the menus to review and select dinner. The staff couldn't be more helpful. Once we'd ordered and waited a short time, we were shown to... More
