7 of us met up for an anniversary dinner, the table was ready for us, a few drinks (recommend the real ale brewed for the bowling green) a scan of the menu and orders were taken. Every one of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals (I had the lamb cutlets, cooked to perfection) the steaks looked perfect and my sons pizza...

My husband and I had our 8th wedding anniversary supper at The Bowling Green. We had never eaten there before, but read so many good reviews. We were not dissappointed at all. The fillet steaks cooked to our liking, had superb flavor and were oh so tender. I enjoyed the mushroom and stilton sauce with my steak. I had never...

Quite an interesting evening was spent at the Bowling Green Inn Steakhouse.... The setting is very dated and tired and looks untouched from days gone by. The restaurant doubles up as a breakfast room for the hotel and has all the accoutrements on display (cereal, cutlery etc.) which detracts from the mood. The wine list is extensive and you can...

Had an evening meal here. Although the lady behind the bar was very friendly the place lacked atmosphere. Didn't feel like a hotel but didn't really feel like a pub either, decor tired and dated! The food was ok. Seemed to have quite an array of wines to choose from.

Visited for four nights while working in the area and I really enjoyed my stay, Karen and Phil are just amazing . My room was clean and the shower was powerful and the bar was very relaxing after work. I ate here every night and if you like good honest well cooked food then you can't go wrong. Thank you!

On a journey from the North of England to the South.We stayed for one night at the Hotel. We found the staff very friendly and helpful on check in and they gave us help with our case to our room. The room was clean and tidy and the bathroom,although a little on the small size,was also very clean. That evening...

In our opinion, the ´off the beaten track´ location really lowered our expectations but this was quickly off set by the quality of the food. Perfectly cooked medium sirloin, served pink and not bloody! Chunky Chips, Onion Rings, Fresh Mushrooms and really tasty garden peas. Starters were great and we only wished we had the appetite for a desert. We...

Doesn't look much from the outside but the Home cooked food is gorgeous , good price and local produce. Sausages and some meat come from their own animals. Cost us approximately £45 for 4 with drinks . Rooms available and always busy .close to m40 jct 11 but a little bit tucked away .

We enjoyed a lovely 3 course meal - choice of food was extensive and I would recommend the steaks and burgers. The prices were extremely reasonable and the service was excellent. At first glance the restaurant looks quite small but there is a delightful conservatory at the rear of the building overlooking fields where rabbits were playing and geese were...
