Treated to a surprise meal for our anniversary we had a wonderful meal and were made to feel very special. From the unusual beer and quirky gin to lovely starter main course and dessert. The Roast dinner was particularly nice! Service was also excellent a wonderful meal spent with social friends!

My last two out of three visits have been disappointingly slow. On two occasions in the last few months I have waited almost 2 hours for my main meal to come out. I believe that the Winery are short staffed but this isn't an excuse, if they are short staffed they shouldn't take so many bookings. A real shame because... More

Came for lunch yesterday. Sat outside as the weather was actually nice for once. Both the food and service was faultless. We ordered the beef ragu and seafood penne pasta with a side of chips and neither of us could finish as the portions were so generous. Really beautiful food and setting. Would return if passing through the area in... More

This was our first time visit to The Winery to celebrate a 50th birthday. The service was excellent being greeted with lovely smiling staff. It was buzzing inside with very happy customers who all looked to be very happy and the food smell made our mouths water. There was 9 of us and we had a drink at the bar... More

Still as good as ever, nothing was too much trouble for my wife's 30th Birthday, the staff set up the table with balloons and decorations for us and generally went above and beyond. Highly recommended.

We returned with 4 friends for dinner following a fantastic dinner 12 months Ago. Unfortunately we were disappointed. Although most of the food was great the service was very poor. We had to ask for finger bowls for the prawns, desert menus and the table to be cleared. A real shame as we enjoyed it so much last time.

The food was lovely as ever, and nice atmosphere. The service is a bit slow. We weren't given a wine list, and we had to ask for the water even though we were told it was coming (buy never did) hence we asking for it again. Been here and live the food, service seems to be going downhill. My son... More

We went to The Winery for the first time as a family for a birthday meal. We were showed into the bar while we waited for our table. On a Sunday lunchtime, it was very busy. We had a lovely table and a very attentive waitress. The three course meal was cooked well and there was plenty of choice, even... More

We have heard so much about this restaurant and here goes: - - Staff - appropriately friendly and they work very hard - in fact, there are probably too many staff waiting the same table and this will impact on tips. Have one or two very good members of staff looking after a table. How many people does it take... More
