Fab food, wonderful service, not pretentious, relaxed and convivial. If you haven't tried this place, you're missing out. The fresh fish choices were particularly lovely, but lots for carnivores and veggies too, yum yum.

“Great lunch venue, highly recommended”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

Three of us visited for a pre-booked Saturday lunch. The restaurant was full and our requested table for three was exaclty as promised. Charming table service and a nicely varied lunch, plus a-la-carte menus. We chose from the lunch menu and were very impressed. Excellent starters - tomato soup with chickpeas and chorizo, prawn cocktail and tapinade. Mains were delightful, the chicken pie was simply perfect, as was the fish. Lovely fresh vegetables too. Rhubarb crumble and the bannana cale to follow, plus coffee.. Baloos serve an excellent locally-produced apple juice too. Very reasonably price at a shade over £50 for the three of us. Well worth a visit - thanks!!

“Lovely menu, service, decor & reasonably priced”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

Third visit here and not disappointed. Always optional to sit on one of the big sofas and have a drink before going through to the table, or go straight through. Specials board has loads of fish dishes and normal menu has wide selection or traditional English, a curry, steak etc. Solid wine list, nothing special. Good desserts and cheese board.

“Perfect party”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

We are regulars at Baloos. However, these comments are on behalf of daughter and friends.

We asked Amanda at Baloos if my daughter could eat with 5 of her friends. She immediately agreed and my 9 year old was so excited to put together her own birthday menu based on some Baloos classics. The menu was printed off for her to discuss with her friends.

On the day the food was fantastic. Not a pizza or burger in site. Ingredients were fresh, local and very tasty. The children were treated as adults and felt very grown up.

A big thanks for making it special.

“Always made to feel like a valued customer!”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

We have been eating at Baloos on a regular basis for a couple of years now, and have just returned home from enjoying Sunday roast today. As always the food was delicious, perfectlly cook and presented and the service first class! Amanda, the owner, and her staff always make you feel that you are special and a valued customer. We will certainly be returning again and again.
