We went on a Sat night and it was quite busy. The food was ok, nothing special for the price. I ordered the Hare, which came with 2 shot pellets which was a bit of a surprise! When I pointed this out the waitress checked with the chef and came back to advise that the chef does check but yes,... More

We always try and come here when we stay with the in-laws as we have found that the food is always good and this time was no exception. We all had the Christmas menu, the food was excellent as always and the staff were attentive as usual. Well done and we will be back!

We sampled the special Christmas menu and it was very good. Hope this is helpful to anyone going to W Runton next Christmas.! But should be a good indication of the general standard - very good.

Had lunch with a friend here today and I literally can't fault it. We were given a warm welcome and offered pre-lunch drinks whilst we looked at the menu. There were so many good choices it was hard to decide what to have. It was so nice to sit at a table with a proper linen tablecloth for a change.... More

Small intimate restaurant. On arrival you order pre-dinner drinks served in a small old fashioned bar area with arm chairs where you can peruse the menu. The dining room is small, the tables nicely set with linen clothes and napkins. The menu has a good choice. We had the duck which was well cooked rather than rare, which I much... More

Visited on the weekend celebrating Beaujolais and had the special menu. To start I had the best quiche I've ever eaten and my husband enjoyed the lamb sweetbreads. For main we had the bouillabaisse and beef bourgignon, both were delicious and having visited France many times I could tell were very authentic, the beef just melted in your mouth. Dessert... More

On our stay in the area we had a most enjoyable meal in nice relaxed surroundings. I cant agree with the earlier comments about dated decor - I can only assume that diner prefers the modern noisy wooden floors instead of a venue carpeted throughout. Although not cheap the food was excellent and pleasantly served. All in all a really... More

If my last meal on earth was to be chosen by me it would be at The Pepperpot and would comprise grilled goats cheese on a salad, then lobster Thermidor, followed by Antoine's iced nougat..........

We arrived before opening time and were made most welcome. Our table was by the back window and was beautifully presented with linen cloths and napkins. The background music was soft...as it should be! Our starters were generous and very tasty. Main courses were delicious and service throughout was friendly and professional. After dessert we felt replete but comfortable. A... More
