Brilliant pub, great outdoor grassed area for our grandchildren, (board games etc indoors too),. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and were very polite. The food was excellent with portions more than adequate. We'll certainly be making a return visit! Thank you 'Ostrich'.

“Lovely Food, Excellent Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went for a meal on Sat night. Recieved a warm welcome, food was lovely, as everything was cooked from fresh, so took a while to get our food but was worth the wait. Very reasonably priced. Will be returning soon.

“We will be back.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

We have now eaten two meals at The Ostrich. The first time was Mother's Day and we had not booked. We were made to feel very welcome. We are vegetarian and were delighted with our fresh stuffed peppers, which were excellent. The second time was in April. We were made welcome again and so was our little dog. The food once again was freshly cooked and tasted excellent. The pub itself is in a wonderful setting and as it was so cold outside the real wood fire was very welcome. We will definitely go back and we will also tell all our friends and family.

Thank you for your review, we cater for all diets and are continually on the search for different dishes for vegetarians and vegans as previous research has shown a lack of choice in that department at other establishments, if there is anything you would like to see on the menu in future feel free to make suggestions on your next visit. Your little dog was beautiful!

“Friendly, Great Location and Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Highly recommended. We had a really enjoyable evening at the Ostrich. Lovely roaring fire, very friendly staff and nice big portions of very reasonably priced good food. We liked it so much we returned for Sunday lunch. Again the service was excellent, smiling waitress, lovely atmosphere and an excellent roast dinner. We will definitely go back, especially in the summer as it has a very nice looking beer garden.
