We ate here on a Wednesday night, and it was fairly busy. The "medium" venison was more than "well done."

I visited The Dormouse on a cold wet Friday evening along with six friends. We sat at a lovely table near a cheery fire. The food was excellent and as we all ordered something different everything looked lovely. Can't fault the food, service or staff. Thank you.

We have eaten at the Dormouse quite a few times, and never had any complaint. The quality is good, so too is the service. Would recommend.

Came across this pub by accident when returning from a visit to York. We were warmly welcomed and shown to a table.We have eaten at Vintage Inns before and have to say this isn't the best. I ordered the scampi medley which was overcooked and hard. My partner had the burger,the smoked cheese slice served on it was like leather.The waiter who brought the meals didn't ask if we wanted more drinks(we did) nor did anyone return to ask if the meals were okay or if we wanted anything else. Not somewhere we would return to.

The welcome was very good. Our table service waiter was very polite even though he was busy at times. The menu is quite limited and then we were told the fish and game pie was off. so it was further limited. Luckily none of us wanted theses items and so the food we ordered was very nice and not to much or to little. We had dessert which we choose off a blackboard menu and was very nice to. OK this pub/restaurant was a bit pricey, we had Three mains, Three deserts and Five drinks and that cost £62 but cant complain as the service and quality food made up for it.
