Wow, this really is good! Booked a table for Sunday lunch well in advance, I'm so glad we did! Can't praise everything highly enough. Great staff, excellent service, fantastic food and really dog friendly. We both had the salmon and prawn cocktail - really good - followed by a roast platter for two. Next time we're staying in the area... More

This is a smallish old pub and not a place that is just a restaurant. Very popular, full of people. Our meal (fish pie) was very nice and tasty, but I feel that more fish and more types of fish could have been used. Scallops would have been good. The waiting time for the food is a little long, but... More

We returned to The Falcon Saturday night for a meal (our first experience just before Christmas wasn't great but thought we'd give it another go). What can I say, the restaurant and bar were full. We hadn't booked a table but was shown to a high table in the bar area which was perfect. The lady behind the bar (we... More

In Longwatton to see family and came here for a quick sandwich on the sat which was great. So we decided to book for Sunday dinner which was lovely, really tasty and cooked well. Can't recommend it enough. Friendly staff that couldn't do enough for us. Would definitely visit again.
