“Outstanding once again”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

The quality of food and service at the Tallo Ho is always excellent, but on a visit last night (Friday May 24th) it really excelled in customer service. We were seated near the bar area and although the restaurant was fully booked, a very large pre-wedding party from a nearby hotel arrived without a booking. Rather than turn them away (as would almost certainly happen in most fully booked places), the manager Denise made them feel welcome and somehow managed to slowly fit them in at tables when vacated by leaving diners. I'm sure that these people were all very grateful and delighted with the friendly service they received from Denise and her staff throughout what turned out to be a busy but jolly evening.

“Old Blubeckers”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

The Tally Ho is the only one in the area to have retained many of the old Blubeckers menu - in particular the legendary ribs that is a family favourite. Whilst service can be a little slow, the food is worth waiting for, check it out.

“Risen from the flames”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We visited for lunch for the first time since a fire closed this impressive inn down a while ago. The restoration has been nicely done with little or no change to the handsome exterior, the welcoming ambience or the cosy decor.

Despite the availability of a selection of real ales, this is a restaurant rather than a pub, and still flies the Blubeckers flag. The pleasant bar staff take orders and although you do not have to eat they then insist on table service, and drinking at the bar is not available. The very pretty garden and wealth of outdoor seating may change the atmosphere and encourage the number of drink-only customers in the Summer, but we have been dull-weather costomers so far and my comments are restaurant-based.

The restaurant is spacious and comfortable with well-judged lighting and a nice open fire, and the menu provides an interesting range. Between us, we enjoyed the tomato/basil soup of the day and the grilled baby squid starter, and fish was the favourite main course choice - excellent fish pie (strongly recommended) and moroccan-style seabass. A number of meat courses were available but were relatively highly priced. Sadly, the bread served without butter was dry, as was that component of an otherwise enjoyable bread-and-butter pudding with clotted cream and fruit. The wine list was good and overtall the meal was enjoyable. Value was OK.

The staff were without exception cheerful, helpful and efficient. We will be visiting again and I am happy to recommend the Tally Ho to others.

“This place used to be so much better”
Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

We came here last week for the first time since the fire hoping it would be just as amazing as before, but were disappointed.
The much looked forward to meal was some what spoilt by the other half having black potatoes in her dinner, the food was greasy and not greatly flavoured. Thought the menu was fairly limited and over priced for lunch time.I won't be rushing back and won't be recommending... How disappointing.

“family meal !!... not as good as it looks !”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

I went here for a family meal , the staff were very friendly ,very helpfull , the restuarant looks very cosy .
But i was not impressed with food , we had roast , , the meat was tough , the yorkshire puds were like cardboard !! wasnt convinced the roast potatoes were fresh peeled potaoes , vacumn packed maybe !!!
its a shame because the the rest of the experience here was good !!
I may add im a chef myself ,!!
I may return one more time to make a different choice to see if i like it !!
many thanks to the staff for looking after us x
