Tried Blacketts for the first time since change of ownership. Food was great and was enjoyed by the three of us. We popped in one evening and within 10 mins all tables were taken. One item we did miss was the front of house service, this made it special on past visits. Certainly a pleasant change fom the larger pubs on the main street.

Good menu and food excellent. Small, so make sure you book as this restaurant was always busy. Good service and well cooked and prepared food.

Visited here with a group of friends. This is a friendly, small restaurant. The food is average but it also has to be noted that it is very well priced so it's not as though you are being over-charged. The standard of food and service is certainly no worse than many of the big chains so in this context this is not a bad restaurant at all. I think if they could address the cooking then this has the makings of a great place. All these things take time. A small restaurant doesn't have the resources of well-established chains so bear that in mind when reading some of these more critical reviews.Good luck to this restaurant: we need more independent places to eat!

The restaurant took a group booking (12 of us!) at very short notice on a Saturday evening, and they did a brilliant job. They were very flexible with the menu (letting us have any of the items, not just limited to the 'Main' menu). The food was lovely and the service was excellent.
