I've visited a few times since my last review but having not posted a review for over a year it seems fair to do so again. We popped in last week (2nd March) and once again were delighted with the meals provided. I had a rump steak, medium rare. It was simply the best flavoured and remarkably tender rump steak... More

Both my husband and I had a lovely lunch en route to St Ives in friendly surroundings. Beautiful lamb pie which I would award 11 out of 10 and the belly pork was superb. Would certainly return when next in the area.

Had lunch here last week and can recommend their Sunday lunch. Nicely cooked with thickly carved meat, lovely roast potatoes and a separate dish of fresh vegetables. Very tasty and good value for money.

I booked a meal for the family to celebrate the first birthday of our son. Both my son and my wife got a sickness bug from the food (they both ate the same ). When contacted about this one of the managers said it was nothing to do with them. No sorry or I hope you get better soon. No... More

I was sorry to read your review of The Trout Inn. Unfortunately when people get ill they typically blame their most recent meal for a case of food poisoning, this may sometimes be the case but many common forms of food-borne illness can take much longer to develop and in the majority of cases it usually turns out to be...

Vegetarian option was ravioli- the portion was small and there was no salad or garlic bread offered. The chicken escalopes with spaghetti was exactly like breaded chicken pieces with tinned spaghetti again no... More

Family friendly, good food for a good price with excellent service. We have been on a few occasions including a meal for my partners birthday. The children enjoyed playing in the play are before and after our meal and I was able to feed my baby without harassment.
