“Nice pub lunch.....”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Nice pub, good ale, really nice food and menu and very good friendly service, would recommend. It is located in near most places and worth a detour to find it and has lots of parking.

“Good value meals”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Good range of a la carte meals, daily specials or they have a set 2 course for under £10. Seemed a very popular place to eat for mature/senior clientele. Tasty and large portion sizes (even the ones deemed for 'smaller appetites'). Quick service- helpful and friendly to our little boy. Have live music on certain nights.

“Great Holiday Meal”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

We have visited the Amberwood on other occasions, before I began reviewing, and it was always enjoyable.

On this occasion 12 of us decended on the restaurant with no notice whatsoever, and were warmly greeted and seating was found for us within 15 minutes.

We all ordered a variety of items from the menu. I ordered a pate starter, which was excellent, and steak which came with chips and salad. The steak was as good as that served in my favourite restaurant, which is a huge compliment. The salad was crisp, and the chips as good as chips get.

All of my family agreed the food was excellent. It was let down slightly by the speed of service once seated, as there were only 2 staff serving, but they were working as hard as they could, and it wasn't as if we went hungry or the experience was spoiled by the wait. It wasn't. Good food is worth waiting for.

The only thing we sent back was clean plates!

Overall, the Amberwood doesn't fail to deliver a range of delicious food, and we'll be returning next time we're in the area.
