We went with friends and were surprised at the set menu prices £23 for 3 courses. The food was a- la cart and at a fraction of the price we expected to pay. It was well presented and tasted lovely. A great night in comfortable surroundings and good service.

I was at this bistro/restaurant for lunch in April. There were seven of us. We were all served promptly by a great server. You can choose to have 2 or 3 courses. I nearly went for the 3 course meal, but to be honest I am glad I was sensible and chose 2. It was plenty. We shared a couple... More

Went on a Wednesday night and had a tasting menu.. Fantastic value for money and quality and flavours where excellent.. The scallops deserve a special mention. Very nice bottle of 20 year old Rioja at £36 was a steal.. Will defiantly be returning all around excellent evening compliments to the chefs in the kitchen and the front of house staff

I have visited Ascoughs twice before & was very satisfied. Today didn't disappoint. We had time to look at the menu with a drink in the bar area before taking our seats. My husband was delighted that Langtons Bowler ( a local beer ) was on the menu. Our food was excellent - my cod moist - often fish arrives... More

My mum, sister and I came here for lunch today and opted for the two-course menu. Our choices included cod loin with polenta, butternut squash and feta gnocchi, blueberry creme brûlée and pannacotta with strawberries. We were all really happy with the selection on the menu - particularly the desserts - and the pleasant and helpful service. We hadn't eaten... More

We finally managed to dine with the tasting menu after several months due to difficulties getting out in the week (work not infirmity!). We have had a spate of tasting menu experiences over the last few months at restaurants from the Cotswolds to Venice and this was up there in terms of quality with any of these and at a... More

I've just completed a few reviews for other places as we've returned from travels and it occurred to me that I never bother to add reviews for places local to home ! So I'm doing this one as I think we are incredibly lucky to have a place like Ascoughs in our area . Both the lunch and dinner menu... More
