Restaurant at Lyzzick Hall

Reviewed By Foxymerlin - United Kingdom

Although the restaurant is quite large, the food was very good and the service very personal. We had dinner and breakfast and our experience was good on both occasions. We did find though that the waiter who was specially appointed to act as sommelier wasn't in fact terribly knowledgeable.

The Pheasant Inn

Reviewed By summer51 - west midlands

We ate here twice during a three night stay. Both times the food and service was excellent. The Lamb Henry was delicious with lovely fresh vegetables also really enjoyed the trout. Would very much recommend but it was very busy so you need to book a table.

Was excited about visiting this place but was left unable to order due to such a minimal menu, so I enjoyed a glass of malbec, not cheap but tasty. Disappointing

A Taste of Thailand Restaurant at Shemara Guest House

Reviewed By DJD140215 - Stamford, United Kingdom

This was our first visit to the restaurant and, despite their warnings, my husband chose the Jungle Curry. He always chooses a hot Indian meal but this is a different heat. He ended up fishing the chicken out of the sauce and using my leftover red Thai curry sauce to moisten his rice.
This restaurant is very welcoming and it’s clear the food is cooked with love.
We would recommend the restaurant but please approach the Jungle Curry with caution (or avoid it altogether!).

Abraham's Cafe

Reviewed By fredfindlay

Have visited this tearoom many times over the years. Very probably the best scones anywhere and great quality light meals.
Only things stopping me awarding a 5 are a) the price which is getting a bit steep and the fact that they don’t top their cappuccino with chocolate, let alone offer a choice of chocolate,cinnamon and ever nutmeg as you’d expect.

The Restaurant at The Cottage in the Wood

Award winning restaurant with rooms featuring the best of Cumbrian produce

Reviewed By Pearlie22 - Basingstoke, Hampshire

Expectations were high from recommendations and previous reviews. And we were not disappointed. The service from the moment we stepped inside, very welcoming and warm given the weather was terrible outside. The decor and lighting was set just right. It was a wet week night in November, so we expected it to be quiet, which it was not. Goes to prove if you get everything right, people will come no matter when or where you are. The food without exception was perfect. We chose the Taster Menu. The variety was great, and I tried food I would never have tried before. Yes it is a bit ‘pricey’ but it was definitely worth every penny. I would definitely love to go along again. And given we have a Guesthouse locally, we will recommend to our guests. Thanks to all the staff who made our anniversary dinner so special, and thanks for the card.

The Kingfisher

Reviewed By DizDiz2013 - Leek, United Kingdom

I'd had several takeaways from this efficiently-run chippy. The chips are perfectly fried, consistently. Their Cumberland Sausage is excellent, really tasty and just enough seasoning. Battered haggis was good too.
One wet Saturday, I had time on my hands and was hungry. So I decided to go upstairs to the restaurant, which was almost empty. No matter. The staff were very pleasant and good listeners to my chatter. They'd had a busy lunch service and it was nice to be able to sit in comfort and quiet with the in-house wifi whilst waiting for my fish and chips late lunch. Glorious!! Perfectly cooked fish and batter! The chips were as good as ever, too. Pot of tea very nice, too.
Decided to treat myself to a helping of their homemade Sticky Toffee Pudding with custard. SO glad that I did! The sponge, with its well-distributed minced dates, was light as the proverbial feather, not too sweet, and tasted seriously amazing!! Sent my compliments to the baker and also popped into the takeaway to add my praise. The chaps looked a bit baffled, but I just had to say something!
Looking forward to further food from The Kingfisher in the future.

The Sizzling Stone

The perfectly cooked steak every time cooked by you on the hot lava stone at your table. Only locally sourced meats served, local real ales and local bottled water. Excellent quality and value wines from £12.95 A bottle. No wine over £20 with the exception of Champagne.

Reviewed By spindrift1 - Seahouses

A belated birthday and end of holiday meal. The Sizzling Stone provided a warm welcome and great service throughout the evening. A fine range of meats and fish which we cooked to our personal tastes on the hot stones at the table. Our two year old grandson was provided for by some tasty chicken goujons in a crispy coating which he loved. None of your Turkey twizzlers malarkey here! Our waitress made a great fuss of the youngster and he was totally spoiled.
The guys washed downed our meals with the ever dependable Morretti beer and the wine list produced a very nice Sauv.blanc for the ladies. The room was small, intimate and had the atmosphere that only good food can produce. We are back that way next March and will certainly call again!
