My girlfriend & I had an excellent meal here. In fact, I'd say the food was the best of the entire holiday. My steak was cooked to perfection & was followed by a lovely crime brûlée flavoured with Amarillo. Service was prompt & friendly; the surroundings delightful - a very reasonable price too.

When asking our landlords to book us into Koornlands, they said it was closed for a couple of das owing to illness and recommended this restaurant to us for dinner. They also booked us in - very recommendable to take reservations as it gets very busy after 7/7.30 pm. Very warm welcome and choice of tables as we were guests... More

This restaurant was recommended to us & we booked well in advance (2months). Dear, oh dear, how disappointing. We arrived promptly for our booking at 7.30 pm & were shown to our table by a very pleasant lady. Unfortunately we did not see her again until we asked for menus, 15 mins later! Order was taken from the 3 Course... More

We ate early at 6.30pm but even at this time service was dreadfully slow. When our food eventually arrived (fillet steaks) it was of a high standard. We left people in the restaurant still waiting for their starters almost an hour after ordering.

We had an excellent meal at Field and Fork, you do have to book in advance as this is a very popular restaurant, our B&B hosts had recommended it. Food and wine were both great, as was the service.
