Visited on a sunday lunchtime with colleagues for a retirement party. The food, as always, was excellent. Very friendly service and all at a reasonable price. Could not fault it in any way.

We visited Fantails with family for an evening meal. Although it was a Sunday night the place was packed. There were plenty of friendly staff who were very helpful and obliging. The food was well cooked and plentiful. A really nice, interesting country pub.

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.

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
