This is in the Good Food Guide as a Little Gem and that it is! Very welcoming and friendly, lovely menu - we would have been happy with any of the dishes. Well presented, tasty food all very sensibly priced for the quality. One amusing thing was the 'Blissful garlic bread' which was 2 not very generous pieces of toasted... More

4 of us were in on a busy Saturday night, we usually visit twice a year to treat Mum on special occasions. This restaurant is so welcoming, a nice snug of a bar where orders are taken and first drinks can be taken. I love the fact that the menu changes on every visit, although we search for our firm...

Having, on local recommendation, recently eaten twice here it is difficult to find anything special about the place. The bar/reception area is small and a thoroughfare to the loos; the welcome was not exactly friendly; pre meal drinks were very slow in being served,. the menu is written on boards which to see you have to be seated on the...

My partner & I visited this restaurant for a meal out with family. As a first time visit we would recommend it especially for a quiet celebration. Food was excellent as was the service. Will definitely go again.

I think there are two points to be made about Blostin's: 1. This is a neighbourhood restaurant run by a husband and wife team who have clearly worked very hard and the food is much better than perhaps the appearance suggests. 2. We really did enjoy our meal hence 4/5 rating but I would say it's not a cheap meal.... More

We happened upon this restaurant by chance, and were surprised by the high quality considering it is tucked away in a small country town. The food was well presented and flavoursome. The menu had good choice of variety - and included a set menu or al carte options. Prices were quite reasonable, and the service was good. The restaurant was... More

I have been coming to Blostins over 15 years, I have never had a disappointing meal, the menu has a winning recipe, same old favourites, crab tartlet, beef Wellington, but there are always some new surprises. I had smoked duck with a celeriac salad, then hake, which was delicious. Good to see the varied selection of vegetables are still presented... More
