We go to Seasons quite a lot and have never had a bad experience. There's a choice between a reasonably priced set menu and à la carte, including daily specials. Many fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. This evening we had three courses à la carte and everything was faultless from start to finish. Delicious, imaginative cooking from Roger and friendly...

We go often to Seasons and love the fact that the menu changes regularly to reflex what is in season. All the food is homemade and you can tell the owners have a real passion for food and supporting local produce, which we love. On our recent visit we had an excellent meal, lovely bottle of wine and found it... More

Portion sizes small and the bill rather high. £70 + for 2 starters 2 mains 1 desert two bottles of beer and 1 coke. Wish I'd read... More

Very very disappointed with our evening at "Seasons". My husband and I booked a table here for Hogmanay Dinner which was a set menu at £45 per person. This did not include any extras and there were only 3 choices for each course. Although it is understandable to have a set menu at this time of year, we still expected... More

My friends and I had the set menu Christmas menu. I being gluten free I dread new restaurant. I need not have worried as I had a wide choice for me. Delicious salmon for starter and lamb for main. My friends went for the turkey and thought that it was very tasty. We were all had a lovely evening.

I had dinner at this restaurant, and it was not particularly busy. Service was friendly and relaxed, but might be a little slow for some. The starter that I had, Venison Bresaola, was good, but very small in quantity. The main course was more satisfying, and I enjoyed the phesant breast, which came with leg confit which I found a...

We find it difficult to eat out as our son has Coeliac disease together with nut and coconut allergies. I am always somewhat nervous when we haven't visited a restaurant previously but we were invited here for a family birthday and were all very impressed. The restaurant is in a lovely quiet village and has a nice feel to it... More

We had waited a while to get around to visiting Seasons but it was worth the wait! Food superb, freshly prepared and delicious. I go as far to say faultless! Lovely surroundings and friendly staff. We will be back!
