Lovely food and nice atmosphere. Has been run by the same family for many years and when we visit we are always greeted like old friends and made to feel special.

We eat here regularly and are never dissapointed! It's family run, and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. It's an old fashioned country pub/restaurant and very clean. If you want minimalistic and severe do not come to this establishment. You can tell the chef loves to cook (everything is freshly cooked to order, there are no microwave meals here) and... More

My family always try to come here when i come back to visit and this was no exception! It was my big 30 so booked a table for 7 of us for a Sunday lunch. Arrived, greeted by the staff with that family friendly feel which is always good. We always get our drinks from the bar because I always... More

Popped in on a Saturday with my wife and small child. We were very well looked after by the staff and the food was decent. Would recommend booking as it was busy.

The Poplars is local to us, and we go frequently. Last night we were a group of 10, and the service was excellent: they are simply very friendly people. We had a broad range of dishes from the xtensive menu(lots of daily specials); and there is always super traditional food as well as the less common like Ostrich. It is... More

We decided to spend New Year's Eve at the Poplars having visited before and we couldn't have made a better choice. Arriving at the venue we were warmly greeted by the very friendly staff who showed us to our table. Once seated our drinks order was taken and we were offered some very tasty canapés. The Parma Ham wrapped asparagus... More

The venue is really nice and very friendly staff. However the steak (Sirloin) that we ordered) particularly my Wife's was extremely fatty so much so she could not eat it. Quite disappointed we left quickly.

Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear of your disappointment with your sirloin steaks. We always strive to have very high quality meats from our butcher. I do wish you would have said on the occasions you were checked if everything was alright, both during the meal and after, but appreciate this is not always the... More

My companion and I arrived at this premises on spec for a Sunday lunch. It has two dining/bar areas, the main one I felt was more comfy and characterful that the other, but both pleasant. We were originally in the second room on our own but accommodated in the main area when a table became free. The second room did... More
