We just got back from the natterjack and just had to write this review as they deserve credit! We have been many times before but unfortunately due to work commitments can't go as often as we would like. We certainly were not disappointed. The food was outstanding. I had the flame grilled sardines followed by hake and then the pudding, creme brûlée . All beautifully served and tasted out of this world. My husband had the creamy mushrooms and roast beef. Now he is a fussy eater but he really enjoyed his meal. We could not fault it. The service was excellent and the staff were friendly and professional. Would we go back. A definite yes!

Visited because of other reviews & wasn't disappointed. Lots of delicious food & great value. Can't fault the service, nothing was too much trouble even when it was busy. Will definitely return.

We had a family gathering for an evening meal at the Natterjack which turned out to be an excellent night out. The atmosphere was great and although very busy the staff were attentive and friendly. All the dishes chosen were well presented and very good value for money. We will certainly go again. Thank you to all the staff for making our evening one to remember.

Wonderful friendly and helpful staff. Excellent choice of vegetarian meals, and the butternut squash, feta and pine nut strudel was one of the best veggie meals i've experienced whilst eating out. The extra touch of a white chocolate dipped cape goosberry on our desserts was lovely, together with the chocolate brownies with coffee... needless to say, we could hardly move when the time came to leave....! Hope to visit again one day soon.

Unable to comment on the food as unable to get in the place. Had booked a room 2 months before for a 2 night stay and advised to 'check in after 3pm'. Arrived at 3.30, not a soul around, place locked up, no answer to phone calls.
After 40 minutes had no alternative but to leave and find somewhere else to stay. Fortunately found The Bell at Evercreech which was the best thing that could have happened. Both the food and the staff were excellent - and it was cheaper.

We are very sorry that you were unable to find anyone when you arrived.
Our procedure is to take an arrival time when guests book in and there is a facility to do this when you check in on line. In the absence of any arrival details our chef took a short break
but was still on the premises. It is a rare thing that there should be no one about.
This has never happened before and we will be extra vigilant when guests book to be sure we have details of arrival times.
We are pleased that you were able to make agreeable alternative arrangements but sorry that
we lost your custom.
With sincere apologies,
Kate Brixey
