I'd always been told that you could judge the quality of a restaurant by the quality of the house wines. Well The Great Lyde didn't disappoint. We ordered the two 8oz rump steaks and a bottle of wine (all that for £25). The wine was...More

Friendly staff, good food. We arrived about 1.30, no Yorkshire pudding although some more came out after we had sat down, wasn't a drama as we had more than enough on our plates.
