Another brilliant meal with friends along with amazing atmosphere. There has been a change in the menu with some even more tasty things to try. Great to see these guys are up with the trend and read the reviews. Still think this place the best in the area with the best staff. All good

We ate our Sunday lunch in the terrace bistro part of The Trout. The staff were helpful and delivered a great service to match the food. The potions were very generous with a huge Yorkshire pudding accompanying the roast beef. I'd definitely recommend it for lunch. And there are small pudding options to accompany coffee if you're tempted but can't... More

Love this place and all the staff. Great service and very well cooked food. Always a loverly atmosphere and great wine to help. The only small - and it is small thing for me would be a change of menu more often would be appreciated, but then we do eat here most weeks. Great effort - must be time for... More

Found the menu to be lacking, struggled to pick something so ended up with fish and chips which were lovely but would have preferred something else. One of our party had the green thai prawn curry which was seriously lacking in prawns and overloaded with onions+++, the boiled rice was just like the packs of well known 'cook in the... More

I'm a regular here but was disappointed on my last visit to see the menu had changed but still offered very little choice. Compared to what it used to offer (more than enough!) it is very limited. I'm not a fussy eater but struggled to pick something due to lack of choice. Ended up with a special - chicken and... More

The better half and me decided on an easy mid week supper. Its been beautifully redone since the floods in December 2015. The food was lovely. I had the cod, which I had to ask the better half to help me finish, whilst he had the sea bream. Staff are so helpful and friendly. A definate must-try.

Went recently for dinner to see changes since refurbishment. I had heard they had revised their menu and upped their game food wise, no longer offering a mammoth multi paged menu but a more simpler straight forward menu. The menu is much improved- on paper- and the decor looks great. Service was friendly but the food was as I remember... More
