“Lovely take away pies!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

we didnt actually eat in the restaurant but when passing by at lunch time noticed the take away menu and decided to buy lunch to take back to our holiday rental.
We bought 2 pies between 4 of us and it was enough to last 2 meals! One mince and onion and the other steak.Just needed to be heated up in the oven. Lovely meal at a very reasonable price! Their pies also seem to be sold in the local shop just down from the restaurant at the same price.

“Quality food and lavish decorations”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

The food was very good and the Hallowe'en decorations were lavish. Very friendly and efficient service. Clearly very popular so make sure you book well in advance. I enjoyed my steak with stilton, but other diners were enjoying their dishes as well. Good value.

“Halloween Extravanganza!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We visited Topsey Turvey the weekend before the week of Halloween, and I've never seen such dedication to Halloween in the UK! The whole place was decked out cobwebs, pumpkins, various Halloween oraments and even talking skulls (which lost their novelty to most in the restaurant, but not us). The waitresses too were wearing Halloween-related clothing, and were in good humour.

The food itself was good, but not great. All 4 of us went for one of the pies of offer, which were served with chips, gravy and/or beans. Standard pub grub, but at a reasonable price (£7.50) for the sizeable portion. Having read other reviews, I wish I'd opted for some cake afterwards...

Would definitely go back nearer Christmas to see what decorations they've got planned for the festive season!

“Great Food”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

What can i say but thank God for this place.We wasted alot of time in a pub in the village trying to get a meal. We just got in only one table left (always a great sign). We looked at the menu it was great wide range of thing to have. We order it came pipping hot and more than ample for even the biggest of appetites just what you need on a cold wet day. There coffee was great hot black. But there cakes are great. Tell the truth even if you dont want a meal go for coffee and cake you wont be regretted it. Dont just pass call in.

“Quirky”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

A cafe/ tearoom during the day, restaurant at night. Very friendly welcome and service. Good food, large portions, though if you're not keen on fish, the meat choice is limited - I even opted for the vegetarian, a delicious nut roast. Wine list limited but adequate, and very good value. Well worth a visit.
