I was sorry to read your review of The Trout Inn. Unfortunately when people get ill they typically blame their most recent meal for a case of food poisoning, this may sometimes be the case but many common forms of food-borne illness can take much longer to develop and in the majority of cases it usually turns out to be...

We booked for a large family party. We were allocated a large table in an all but private room which was nice. The food was very disappointing. Vegetarian option was ravioli- the portion was small and there was no salad or garlic bread offered. The chicken escalopes with spaghetti was exactly like breaded chicken pieces with tinned spaghetti again no... More

Family friendly, good food for a good price with excellent service. We have been on a few occasions including a meal for my partners birthday. The children enjoyed playing in the play are before and after our meal and I was able to feed my baby without harassment.

To be perfectly honest deciding to have Christmas lunch out can be a bit of a lottery as not only are they quite expensive but the quality can vary quite considerably even when you book somewhere you know well. Pleased to say the quality of the food was very good and so was the ambience. The staff were very friendly... More
