You like the way this location is decorated or hate it.
But the dishes are good and tasty, although quite high priced.
Nice staff serving. No Guinness beer on draft is a shame, however ;-) This location is absolutely not irish in appearence, but a welcome variation after visiting so many pubs and regular restaurants.

Thank Gerald T

Large restaurant for a small village. Prices were average, although it is strange that the fries have to be a side dish, when you buy a burger... it makes it a little bit an overprized bruger. But the quality was good and the presentation beautifull. My partner ordered a pizza, which was quite OK. All pizzas were also different than the usual pizzas you find on a menu, which makes it a nice experience. Even the garlic bread was served in a surpringing presentation.
Nice staff and although I was not quite proper dressed for a visit to a restaurant, no remarks were made!

Have visited several times since they opened. It's so much better than The Poets Rest which was a nice local restaurant but could be hit and miss with hours of opening and food wasn't always up to par. Inside Out is amazing. The new decor is far nicer, service is extremely attentive, front of house manager is on the ball, far more interesting menu and the food is always excellent. The Mozambique sauce, which comes with the spatchcock chicken, a prawn dish, and today was on the potato special, is just delicious. Really interesting dishes with something for everyone. I've visited both for lunch and dinner, with family and as a couple, since the first week it opened and I'm delighted to have such a good restaurant near me (but it's absolutely worth a drive; we used to drive half an hour to our previous "regular" and this is better).

We dropped into The Poets Rest on Sunday .The place is nicely done out and the staff very helpful and friendly.
The food was good .
The tomato chilli soup spicey and tasty , however served in a flower pot, I'd prefer a bowl.
The pizza wasn't bad nothing special.
