Visited with three family members for a birthday meal, the table was booked for 8, but we arrived at half seven, this was not a problem, shown straight to the table and given the menus and delicious fresh bread. We selected the house Pinot Grigio, it was delicious and at c. £14 a bottle, reasonably priced. We were given plenty of time to look over the menu, and once we had selected, the starters arrived after 10-15 minutes. The waited came back after a few moments to say the 1/2 duck one of the party had ordered would not be available, due to a mistiming in the kitchen, but offered an alternative dish, no problem really.

My twice beaked souffle was delicious, as was the chicken liver pate I also sampled. The table was cleared of side plates and spare cutlery in readiness for our mains (dirty plates cluttering up the table are a bug bear of mine, so I was very happy!) and a candle that had gone out was replaced. The mains were ready promptly, large portions accompanied by plenty of potatoes and veg, about halfway through the waiter offered the party more sauces for their individual dishes, a nice touch which shows the attention to detail. We ordered a second bottle of wine which was poured for us, again a nice touch, rather than just being put on the table.

The meals really were delicious, a great balance of flavours, and well presented. We were given a rest to let our meals settle before we selected puddings, three of us going for the brandy snap baskets which were divine! As we had exchanged gifts at the start of the meal, the birthday girl's pudding arrived with a candle in the top, again another little extra which added to a lovely dining experience. Although we were the only people left in the restaurant, we were not rushed to leave the table , and when we produced a 10% discount voucher, the amount was discreetly removed from the bill, and we never felt like it was an inconvenience at all. The bill originally to came to £136, for 4 starters, 4 mains (including a huge Sirloin steak) three puddings and two bottles of wine, so not cheap, but by no means extravagant, and for the portions and quality of the food, certainly no complaints.

I have eaten here 3 times now and have never been disappointed.
The restaurant itself has a very cosy and welcoming layout, the menu is varied allowing for even the pickiest eaters such as myself to have a choice.
The food arrived quickly and was delicious, the waitress (Carys) was extremely helpful and friendly.
I would defiantly recommend to anyone and will be returning again when i'm up north.

We had some family staying with us over the Christmas period, so decided to bring them out for a meal to Danielle's, after it was recommended by a friend. We were greeted warmly by the staff, who stayed attentive all night and were then offered the wine list. Sharing a bottle of house wine with my husband, at a very reasonable price, I chose the grilled goats cheese to start followed by the pork belly, both cooked excellently. The atmosphere was welcoming and relaxed and the food was fantastic. Will definitely be returning!

I've been here a couple of times recently and the Christmas lunch is amazing!
It has a very cosy setting and the Christmas music playing in the background made for a lovely atmosphere. The sides of vegetables and sauces are included in the price which is good value as most restaurants charge extra.
The staff are really friendly and kept topping up our bread basket, I will definitely be going again soon as I love the desserts!

We have passed this restaurant many times on our annual visit to the area but not had a meal.
We wish we had visited sooner as the food was lovely.
The set meal was good value with plenty of choice.
We both enjoyed our meals from the normal and set menu.
The wine list was comprehensive and reasonably priced too
Would definitely recommend Danielle's
