We booked here for Sunday lunch to entertain our London friends who were down to visit for the day. The meal was excellent and we all enjoyed it. It exceeded our high expectations. James, the patron, made us feel very welcome and did not rush us. Three of us chose the beef sirloin and one opted for pork. The meat... More

We ate here as a party of 9, mid January. Food was excellent. Service was ok, nothing special but nothing to complain about either.

This was average food at high prices. Quite a small menu...mainly beefburgers. Food tasted as if had all been cooked in the same oil. Also poor quality house wine.

It's not a secret how great this restaurant is and we found it absolutely met our high expectations. Wonderful roasts with full trimmings and delicious desserts, there is nothing that could have improved the food or service we received. Highly recommend the brilliant roast pork loin.

We wanted a really decent Sunday roast and knew that the Tickled Pig provided free range meat so thought we'd try them out. There was a good choice of roasts, two meat one fish and one veggie, we had the pork and it was absolutely delicious! The portion size was perfect too, lots of veg and really fresh. It's not...

We called in here just before Xmas. The gentleman who served us was very welcoming and attentive and we ate upstairs - it's an old building and very snug. The food is sourced locally and seasonally. This was one of the best lunches I have had for a long time (cheese soufflé,then cod rarebit) and my Mum really enjoyed her... More

Went here for a valentines meal. From the minute we walked in our waitress made us feel great, and was very helpful. As it was Valentine's Day the restaurant was fully booked, as you would expect! There was a small wait for food but it was fine, I've always been a believer that good fresh food takes longer to cook,... More
