When we arrived, we were shown promptly to our table and our drinks order was taken. It was a set menu but the choice was good. The starters were lovely and the main course (beef) was cooked to perfection. Lots of levels belt fresh vegetables as well. Almost didn't have room for one of the lovely desserts but... The restaurant... More

I have always had a very good meal the service is very good, smiles makes the atmosphere a delight and I enjoy the every moment. We went once for my daughters birthday and as she was wheat free the chef iced the cake I had made they could not have done more to make our night a very enjoyable experience.

We visited Blue Mallard on a Tuesday night (Steak Night). There was 18 of us 4 being under 11, we'd pre-ordered because of our table size but that wasn't a problem. The service was great, staff very friendly & food gorgeous. Only the kids complained that their burgers were too spicy & tasted funny, the burgers were on thick focaccia... More

After having a great experience the Blue Mallard for a Christmas party night, made use of one of their great 'advent calendar' vouchers and treated my other half to a Sunday Lunch. The food was delicious and couldn't fault it - beautifully presented, fresh and so flavourful. Service was friendly and prompt, and they were able to accommodate to gluten-free... More

When I read the last review on trip advisor I was very apprehensive of a further visit, but I thought that it could not have deteriorated since my last visit.Guess what ,the reception, service and the food were all up to the standard I expect.I can recommend the starter of poached smoked haddock and also the twice baked brown shrimp...

This is the second of this type of evening we've attended at the Blue Mallard and I have to say they've really "upped" their game since the last one, which was perfectly pleasant in itself, but nothing spectacular. This time however the standard of the six courses of food offered was everything one could wish for. Particular favourites for me... More

We've been here a number of times now and the food has always been nice. Definitely the saving grace. Both times however the service has been less than average, on the recent visit it was poor. Like the review before this one, the staff almost went out their way to avoid eye contact. Just ordering wine with the meal was... More

Went Sunday afternoon. Lots of tables empty. "Have you booked?" - "No - Can we sit by the window, please? - "No". We were seated, given menus and basically, ignored from then on. Three teenage girls moved about the place, always keeping their heads turned away from where the most customers were - in case you caught their eye. After... More

Not quite sure how to write this review. We have just had Sunday lunch at this restaurant as we were in the area. A very strange experience though as there appeared to be no one in charge. The food that came out of the kitchen was average but the waitresses all appeared to be average age of 18 and the... More

Our recent visit to The Blue Mallard came about as we had vouchers for another restaurant that unfortunately had ceased trading the week before. In a surprising and fantastically kind gesture, The Blue Mallard said they would honour the full value of those vouchers. The menu offered a great selection of appealing dishes and the Flatiron steak certainly didn't disappoint.... More
