Delicious food but very expensive. Don't go here if you want value for money. Outrageous decor which is a real talking point, definitely a wow restaurant. Loads of parking, excellent lunch menu much better value. Nice place for just a drink too.

I had heart lots about this place over the years, so took Mum there on mothers day. The decour is like Bet Lynch's bedroom. Naff and tacky. The food was OK, but I wouldn't go back, wasn't quite worth the drive.

Can you order from the bar menu if you're seated in the restaurant? Thanks

Hi Mandy, I don't really know. We weren't offered a bar menu when we were in the restaurant. Sorry I'm not much help.

What is there to say about The Who'd a Thought It? The building is a restored sixteenth century pub, no doubt the site of countless parties and celebrations over the centuries, and is now a luxurious Champagne bar, restaurant and hotel. At the Whody, you can expect to have a truly unique and memorable experience whether you join us for the night, a meal or just a drink. Our restaurant, run by Master Chef finalist Tobias Caira, offers Classical English dishes, carefully prepared with local ingredients, plenty of attention to detail and the characteristic Whody flair. As a hotel, we're chock full of character and charm - each suite boasts its own singular personality. Whether you're looking for classical romantic elegance or stylish contemporary themes, we can provide something you won't find anywhere else. No matter your preference, your room will be fitted with flat screen TVs, hot drink-making facilities and en suite bathrooms. Select rooms also offer four-poster beds, jacuzzi baths, hot tubs and complementary champagne from our outstandingly well-stocked stores.
