Family get together of 8 for a birthday lunch. We thought we had booked but they did not receive it. Within a few minutes, they sorted us out despite it being a Sunday lunch time and it was sunny and they were busy. Service was quick and efficient delivered by friendly young staff. My 'Hunters Chicken' was a little dry... More

The place itself is very nicely done out and is a transformed beautiful old Cottage. What a shame the rest of the dining experience doesn't match up to that. The service is pitifully poor... if you want to place an order for food or drinks you almost have to stand on the table and wave your arms to get any... More

As all parents know, we redefine our standards of what is normal and acceptable in terms of dining out for the first 5 or so years of our children's lives. Plastic tablecloths previously sniffed at, suddenly look like a really good idea. We no longer care if we can't cut through butter with our steak knife, because at least it... More

I have been to this place with my family a number of times. Place is always busy but staff is accommodating, so even though we never book in advance, they always find a place for us to sit. There is a nice open fire place in the middle of the restaurant which is a lovely feature in winter. Food is... More

Return visit here for a work lunch. Very nice experience! Staff were friendly and helpful without being over bearing, food was lovely and decently quick given the size of the group. Went for the set 2 courses - very good value for money and very good food! Decor is nice inside and there is always a nice atmosphere. Much nicer... More

Went last night for an impromptu family dinner 6 of us including one child and a wheelchair user. Brilliant evening, the lovely waitress sat us in an area with plenty of room and checked we had room to get the wheelchair through. She was friendly and patient. She took the time to listen to my father and involve him, whereas... More

The Golden Retriever is located in a very picturesque setting. It is very well visited by locals but is large enough to cope with the numbers. It has a very nice eating/drinking out area in the front and a sizeable car park. There is an extensive menu and our food at lunchtime was delivered promptly and well presented. I was... More

Plenty of room to be seated. Food arrives promptly and is in good portions. The 1 or 2 veggie options are also great.

Had a spur of the moment idea after visiting fathers grave nearby, to pop in for some lunch and a beer. Great food and service.
