Really nice choice of dishes...fish, meat and vegetarian. Tables are nicely laid out, with good spacing so the place has a relaxed atmosphere at night. Staff are efficient and helpful. I had the Mushroom with egg as a starter and the fish pie as a main. All perfectly presented and cooked. Good for couples, family parties and business probably not... More

This is my wife's favourite restaurant and we try to go at least twice a year. We went just before Xmas and pleased to see that they had a menu that did not focus on festive food alone. We always find interesting things on the menu and enjoy the food, ambience and service

Firstly I'd say that the food here is pretty decent. Pork Belly main and Crumble and custard were good. Apart from the bread brought to the table. That was un-edible, rock hard and seemingly stale. Four of us were out dining tonight, I'd decided not to order a starter. There wasn't anything to tempt me particularly. I'd have loved a... More

We live quite near to this restaurant and frequent it regularly. I've put off writing a review before because, rather selfishly, i want to still be able to get a table when i ring up! The staff are very friendly and very attentive and the food and wine are excellent value for money. An added bonus is that the Blue... More

We've been here in the past and been impressed, but it's not what it was. Food menu was limited in range, and the cooking was unoriginal. Staff didn't offer to take coats. Service felt hurried: we arrived at 7.30pm, and had ordered and eaten starter and main course by 8.30pm - not the nice leisurely evening we had hoped for.... More

Thank you Graham for taking your time to review us it seems such a shame that although you have visited us you only choose now to post a review. Once again I always state that if something is not quite right why did you not mention something on the evening. You did arrive at 7.30 but did not want pre... More

The Blue Strawberry provides the complete dining experience, wonderful food, great service, and all in a very comfortable setting. From the minute you enter the restaurant and are greeted by the friendly staff, who will soon have your coat neatly hung away and get you a glass of your favourite tipple, before leading you to your table once you're ready....

Went as a group of 13 for a birthday celebration. Peak time on Saturday night yet quality and timing wasn't an issue. Didn't even have to prebook meals. Good range of food on offer which gets changed daily depending. One 1 small point and I'm being picky.. we asked for more veg and it never arrived. Definatley go again. Atmosphere... More

Great food, good value and friendly staff. We have been regulars for twenty years. This is the restaurant that all others in the area have to beat.......and most fail! From the moment you enter you get a warm welcome from Steph the barman or Jack when she is working. Food ranges from comfort eating to more elaborate dishes; all excellent... More
