My husband and I went for our anniversary meal (it was my husbands first time) we both had scampi and chips with mead to drink. The meals were plentiful and piping hot. We couldn't fault the food or the service. We would definitely recommend

Friendly staff, excellent food and huge portions! Good service and an enjoyable meal. Dessert was amazing. A bit pricey, but worth it for the experience of the Meadery.
