Loved the laid back atmosphere, plus the skewers were very tasty too. We shared a Skewer House Special and it was amazing value. Also, the wine was lovely and much cheaper than many restaurants.

Been here on a few occasions now, both with family and with friends every time the food has been good, one occasion the fish skewer was over done, but they sent out a freshly done one and couldn't have been more apologetic. Great food, great staff, lovely place to enjoy a meal with friends and family.

I read the reviews and sent email late afternoon for early that evening having tried to phone. The answerphone message suggested the email. A quick response meant that we could deviate off the M5 to get there just after 6pm. The reviews were very accurate and do not need repeating. Very surprised that a number of tables were already occupied by 6.15pm but having sampled the food and service it was obvious why this eatery is so popular. My partner thoroughly enjoyed her birthday meal. Uncomplicated menu, very enthusiastic staff, good presentation and lovely atmosphere made it difficult to beat next year. It may have to be The Skewer House again.
Prices very reasonable and advice given by staff very accurate

Lovely simple menu with good sized portions, the food was really tasty but very garlicky, which is great for me, but not so much if you're not a massive garlic fan. Great decor with a lovely atmosphere, although they could do with slightly more comfortable chairs. Staff were very friendly.

Very enjoyable meal. Great staff, simple menu, tasty food. I loved the hanging kebabs. The lamb and chicken were delicious. Very garlicy!
My daughter said it was the best garlic bread she had ever had and the puddings looked special.
I would definitely return
