“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Two years ago I went to this place and was disappointed by the poor service. Had not been back there until today. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The food was excellent. Had the braised pheasant and the other members of the party had the roast beef. Plenty of veg and potatoes with it. The home-made sweets are also very good. Between us, we had sticky toffee pudding and cheesecake, but no ordinary cheesecake. Instead the type that sticks to the roof of your mouth! All in all highly recommended and would definitely go back again soon

“What a great little find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

What a great little place, my sister recommended it to me 4 weeks ago as she had lunch with her one of her friend’s in there and I’m so glad she did. I can’t get enough of it now!
I have now eaten in there twice for lunch and once for Sunday dinner and every time it’s been excellent. The food is very simple and superb and the service is excellent and don’t get me started on the gin menu (FAB). They change the menu about six times a year so there is plenty of variety and plenty of choice when you go. The portions are more than adequate as well which makes a refreshing change for places like this.
I love this place and I will return many times.

“Friendly staff good portions good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

our second time here a great family night out in convivial atmosphere in this converted old pub where the food is often traditional with a twist or two and cooked to perfection, traditional maybe but never lacking in imagination highly recommended, cosy setting not too big

“Good food, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

My first visit back to Alty in 30 years, last time the Vic was a hole in the wall pub, now it is a restaurant worth visiting. Is it the best in the world? No, but is it one of the best in town and do they try hard, YES! We were a walk in, but treated very well. The tables were full and turning over quickly. The portions were generous and well priced, the beer choice could be improved but with 7 pubs within crawling distance (memories of the youth flood back) the beer is ok. Thanks for a great night!!
