Description: The Phoenix is a historic and magnificent building in a prime location, with a large car park and a beautiful, peaceful garden. The food is simple, fresh, as much as possible local. Andrew Ryder, chef proprietor is passionate about provenance and seasonality. The menu changes frequently, to allow for seasonal favourites. The service is friendly and informal, staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. There is always a good selection of real ales and the extensive wine list suits all tastes and pockets.

“Pre Christmas Meal”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

I visited this restaurant last evening (19th) for an annual Pre-Christmas meal with my wife and friends. We arrived a couple of minutes late but we not rushed to sit down and allowed a pre dinner drink at a leisurely pace. The meal was for the main excellent, my friend however, was given the wrong order of steak. This was replaced but rushed providing for a tough piece of meat.
The staff were first class and were quick to solve any request. I can personally recommend the Scallop starter and the 16oz Steak. A lovely evening was had and I would recommend this establishment to all.

“A really nice meal”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

A busy Saturday night just before Christmas, the place is packed giving a great atmosphere
We were given a warm welcome and shown to our table.
The menu choice was varied with something to suit everyone for both starters and main courses
The service was friendly and efficient, the food was excellent quality, served piping hot. Good choice of wine not necessarily cheap but our house wine selection proved to be ok
As a nice touch, the chef came round to each table to check that everything was good, a nice touch.

“Christmas meet up. ”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

Had a table of 12 booked. Very good service from the start. The food was also good but on the pricey side. I think it's safe to say your paying for the presentation. I had the cheese board. Which to be honest wasn't worth the £7.50 but others had the cheese cake which did look nice. I had the pork roast which was nice. I had a couple of pints which was £3.70 a pint. Which again is a little more than I would of liked to of paid.
