Had a great night out here, thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Husband had rump steak well done with homemade chips, onion rings and peas which was cooked lovely, two of us ordered sizzlers, one was chicken and the other beef, the portion size was big, and half rice and chips, very nice. Sister had fish and chips and sister in law had scampi and chips,brother in law had lamb banquet. We all enjoyed our meals, and we will definitely go back. Service was excellent, and it was a busy Saturday night

Just ate at the Hilltop & the mince, leek dumpling was very good & the homemade chips are always worth having but this is the second time I've had a dessert & been disappointed. I would say they are not homemade & do not match the standard of the main courses. I'll be trying the starters next time instead.

Totally disagree with the previous reviewer, myself and my family visited on New Years day and had the best meal we've had in a long time in a local pub. Couldn't fault the food or the service both were excellent. The only thing that put us off was that we were seated in the "family area" not what we would have chosen if given the choice. Myself & partner visited a couple of days later & had the lunchtime specials 2 for £10.95 which were also very good.
