“Out of this world”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Myself and the family decided to try this restaurant after hearing many good reviews from friends that live in the village. There was a lovely range of food available. As well as the classic pub favorites, they also have a lovely a la carte menu, not like any I have seen in this kind of establishment before. My husband had the steak and ribs, which to his shame defeated him as the portion was so big. My mother had the pork belly which was perfect for her as it was lovely and tender. I had the pork and chirizo burger from the specials board which was out of this world!! Overall we were very impressed with our experience here and shall definitely be returning. Keep up the good work guys!!

“The best food we have eaten in long time”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Have to say that this pubs food is excellent, the chef has real imagination and a flair for getting the best not only in taste, but presentation as well. The staff are very attentive and looked after our every need, this was not a pretence they really appear to enjoy their job and take pride in what is presented. Had the seafood linguine which was just so lovely with crispy calamari as a tasty garnish, it now comes in a tomato sauce which is just as good as the creamy one that they used to do it in. I really think that this is one to watch and just hope that they keep Dan the chef and that he doesn't get "Poached" by someone else. The fish batter is so light and complements the fish which tastes really fresh, just such a lot, you certainly don't go hungry.

“Mother's Day treat!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

Called here on the off chance on Mothers Day after ringing the usual Beefeater/Harvester, expecting a No sorry but a pleasant surprise Yes we do.

There was a lovely choice of starters / roasts and desserts ...
It was nice to have different choices of meat lamb/beef or pork .... A good choice of vegetables too.

Although it was busy our order was taken quickly and it all arrived promptly - all with a smile.

Overall would recommend The Redstart Inn to all
