We go to The Orchard several times a year with our kids, particularly for Sunday lunch. The food is always tasty and is great value for money. Portions are large too. The menu offers great choice and we like the house wines. There is a children's menu but they also offer a half roast for kids, so you can always... More

I have been here a few time and every time I go I say I am not going again. The food is only ok but don't go there if you only have an hour for lunch. It can take 40 minutes to get your food. Even for a joint of the day or something. Staff are lovely and the location... More

Just back from a christening dinner at the orchard. It was for a party of 20 with 4 young kids under 4. Due to a large number of food allergies eating out can be a nightmare for me. Before attending the orchard I sent an email asking if they would be able to accommodate me. My email was responded to... More

I think it's only fair to write another review to acknowledge how much this restaurant has improved in recent months. There is a new menu with so many choices, and the food is really beautiful. I honestly recommend you to visit, it will be worth it.

We were staying at the spring hill court hotel and were told that children could not be in the bar after 7 along with the fact the menu at the hotel was expensive we looked for somewhere else to go. Thankfully I found the orchard. This place is fab. There are 2 large bars and a snug bar. The back... More

When this first opened it was great simple good food well priced and close by, ideal! Unfortunately I havent eaten there in a few months and really plan to never eat there again. Burgers that were raw in the middle undercooked chips, really flavourless. The first incident if this happened about 2 years ago didnt go back for about 6... More
