We have visited here on many occasions and it never fails us. The service is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble, always service with a smile. The chef even dishes that weren't on the menu for the children. If you are looking for the best steak around look no further they are cooked to perfection. Can't recommend this... More

I have actually been to this place before, so the length of time we waited was no surprise but this was the worst visit I've experienced. We arrived roughly 2.15pm for a 2.30pm booking and ended up being seated at around 2.55pm. At 3.30pm we were still waiting for starters. They eventually made it out but the main didn't arrive...

The meal was excellent and so was the service. Had dinner with friends from university. The waiting area is now tired and could do with a revamp.

One of those recommend was the cotter. This is a long established local eatery. It serves local. The place is... More

Just a pleasant, old-fashioned English restaurant with some Continental choices. Warm, friendly service; well-cooked meals; ridiculously generous portions; very reasonable prices. The food was better than a meal the night before at the trendy Marco nearby.

We had not been to The Cottage for a long time it has not changed at all. Yes it appears a little dated but the food was very nicely cooked with excellent service. Overall very good value for the good food and we will not be leaving it as long to visit again.

This is lovely to look at from the outside front. The entrance is round the side and the front bar is also period and pleasant. The dining room at the back is far newer, but not fully modern. I don't mind that at all and to my mind the reviews that are critical on that count are rather unfair. The... More

This restaurant is lovely from the outside if a little dated inside, and there is a slight musty smell which maybe you should expect in a building of its age. but the welcome, the good food, excellent service and the reasonable prices more than make up for any initial misgivings. I would highly recommend that you eat here if you... More
