“A night to remember”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

after moving to the area we were advised to try, had to book well in advance for the weekend but it was worth it, they were very busy but felt valued inspite of this.
the food is delicious and the setting/mood perfect
is you find stairs a problem perhaps mention it when you book as they are Vintage and quirky to get down after a glass or two

“First class Restaurant”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Top class restaurant with excellent food. Ideal for the special occasion - and highly recommended.
I've been there a number of times and have never been disappointed.

“Disappointed!”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Have actually been a regular 'visitor' to 'On The Hill', last 2 visits have been less than average but went on 5th April with a friend who was insistent that I gave it another try! Chose the Sea Bass which could have been any fish dish! Didnt taste like sea bass at all ! Salad was full of rocket which I don't like so spent all night picking it out! ( My taste I know) Asparagus was terrible- stringy, couldnt eat it! Pudding was to die for though!! Service - would have liked same person waiting on but as last 2 visits had about 3 if not more waitresses asking if everything ok & did I want anything else!? Where are Imogen & Rowan?? Are you still there?? If so then 'get a grip!' pleeeeze. Will 'vote' with my feet & not go again (sadly). Thinking of trying Grill on the square..................heard good feedback.! I think, although, OTH, are busy, it's customers that are happy with the ambience & not the standard of food. Sorry.

“Delicious food and great service.”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Excellent restaurant, varied menu, reasonable prices. There is only one negative about this [place, some of the seats are old church pews and not particularly comfortable. However this did not stop us from dining there on two consecutive nights!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

Dined on a Wednesday evening and the place was packed. The service was A1 and the food was stunning. We can highly recommend this gem of a restaurant and can't wait to return in the summer for another crack at the extensive menu. The prices are good for a restaurant of this quality and the ambience was extremely comfortable
