“God eat but can be expensive....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

All round good eating but at £20+ a steak needs to be tender....Maybe an off night for the chef but otherwise give it a try.

“wine rip off”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

We had a lovely meal and orderd a bottle of expensive red wine.
We couldn't finish the bottle, but the lady behind the bar said she would save it as we were returning later.
When we returned, the wine was weak and watered down. When we complained to the manager, he denied this and didn't even offer an alternative glass of wine, as we had spent alot of money.
Won't be back!!!

“Welcome Drinks & Christmas Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

We popped into the Village Inn on Friday 20th December while we were waiting for access to our lodge for the weekend. The roaring fire and friendly staff were just what we were looking for and we quickly decided to book a lunch for the following day.
The food was lovely - a really nice choice of food on the menu - and the staff were super friendly. So nice to be served by people who were clearly enjoying their job and who actually enjoy working with the public! We will definitely be back!

“Christmas Family Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

We had our family Christmas dinner at the The Village Inn. We were warmly greeted when we entered and had a drink before we were shown to our table. The meal was superb and was beautifully presented. The staff were attentive without being in your face and gave the impression that we could have stayed all day. Our meal was booked for 3.3 and we left at 6.ish.

I would happily go back again.
