The Fox Hole

Reviewed By Sandra D

We had a lovely meal with friends here recently. Attentive and friendly staff and a good selection of meal choices. The lamb burger on the specials deserves a mention (sorry no picture as was demolished speedily). Tender steaks and excellent fish platter too. Leave space for desserts, no disappointment there either.

The Talbot

Reviewed By Paula H

We visited last week and unfortunately arrived late as my husband for some reason took a very circuitous route! I was worried about arriving late but our apologies were put to one side as not being required. The meal we had was first class. I had fillet steak which was very reasonably priced as was absolutely delicious!. We have paid significantly more for lesser steaks in the past.Every aspect of our evening was superb, the surroundings, the food and certainly the staff who were efficient and very friendly.Brilliant experience and will certainly return.

The Brinkburn

Reviewed By Keith4529

Having visited the Brinkburn for many years, this was a shock. I ordered a couple of meals for my wife and me and was overcharged by just over three pounds. When I pointed this out, the staff wouldn't listen and told one of our party not to get her knickers in a twist. I told them to leave it and went back to my table to choose which picture I would take as compensation. Apparently one of the staff finally realised what was wrong and sent three pounds over to me. I no longer needed the picture off the wall and the food was okay. Very disappointed.Hello Keith4529 thank you for taking time to write this review albeit slightly inaccurate in its account.. I don't know about you, but when I go in somewhere to eat I always take time to read the menu and to understand the offer, that way, I'm sure of what the price will more or less be and what to expect. I don't think I would expect someone else in my party to take it on themselves to shout up on my behalf and drown the poor server out so she couldn't think why the customer was being charged the price he was. The menu quite clearly states on the section '2 pub classics for 10.49' ' EXCLUDES GO XL DISHES' which is exactly what you ordered, one at 10.49 and one at ' GO XL- THE CODFATHER FOR 2.10 EXTRA'. At no time did I, or any of my staff refer to anyones knickers twisting or anything else twisting for that matter. The one sole reason I reimbursed you £3 back was to show good will and to stop you being so disappointed.As you kept telling me you were. Bye the way, it goes without saying, to attempt to remove any pictures or any other articles that are the sole property of the pub, constitutes criminal damage, and the intervention of a police officer which, I suspect, would have made the entire experience even more disappointing to you. Have a nice day, Kind Regards Karen Davies, General Manager.. Hope to see you again soon

The Bay Horse

The Bay Horse retains an emphasis on the finer details of a real old English pub, hand pulled local ales in dimple glasses and side dishes served in copper pans. The menu is made up of classic British cooking with a twist & has a strong emphasis on flavou

Reviewed By DarloFoodie

A most enjoyable evening in this marvellous restaurant made our anniversary. From the outside it looks just like any other public house but inside the Bay Horse is exquisite! From the first welcome and introduction you are made to feel the focus of the staff's attention. Little homemade breads are served prior to the starters. The mussels come as a very good-sized starter and the roasted scallops delightfully presented and cooked. The daube of beef and the partridge were also cooked and presented to perfection. This is food as it should be enjoyed and so much better than almost anywhere else we have found in the area over the last 8 or so years.

Another lovely meal - seating area was decorated with birthday banners! As always the service and food was excellent. All our family thoroughly enjoyed the occasion. It is lovely to know that when taking guests it will be a first class experience. Thank you to the whole team that makes that happen.

The Raby Hunt Restaurant

The North of England's only Two Michelin Star Restaurant, owned and run by self-taught chef James Close.

Reviewed By ick1986

We visited the Raby Hunt yesterday for the first time and we were not disappointed! Everything from the service, to the atmosphere, to the decor and of course the food and wine. We opted for the classic wine pairing and in our opinion it is well worth it. Each wine is explained in detail and compliments each course. We were lucky enough to get a signed menu from James as a birthday gift which was amazing. We have already booked up to visit again in the new year. A personal highlight to me was the salad course- I have never tasted anything with so much flavour. If you are considering visiting the Raby Hunt you should do it- it is obviously pricy but as a special occasion/rare treat is it worth it.

The Black Horse

Reviewed By GPH74

Fancied an Italian so after the reviews thought we would try The Black Horse for ourselves. Went for the 3 course lunch menu for £11.95. Service very good and friendly staff. Food surprisingly pleasant. Felt it was good value for the price and food very nice. Best lemon sponge my wife has ever tasted. Will be bringing the family next time.
