Not been for years, great Sunday lunch a real treat and fantastic value. We have eaten at many a place locally but this is up there amongst them for tasty, filling food that is really reasonable ££.

Visited here for lunch with friends on a weekday. The restaurant was quiet but both food and service were good. We were given time between courses, we were not rushed and were able to talk. Portion sizes were appropriate and reasonably priced. Will definitely visit again for lunch and will try an evening.

Very small portions. Very loud literally couldn't talk to each other. Very bright and unpleasant decoration. Very overpriced for what it is. Wouldn't go back here. It's just not good. I wouldn't go here again. Nothing special .

We had high expectations before we arrived at Blacksticks but we left feeling disappointed. The food was Ok but certainly nothing at all special. The main courses and puddings were presented in a way intended, I think, to impress but the food itself didn't impress at all. It was average. The chunky triple-cooked chips tasted more like roast potatoes, my... More

Went here for valentines and although the food was good won't say it was a very romantic place Very sparse in decor. Good portion sizes in everything we chose and we were happy with the quality for the price paid. Nice bottle of wine. Young waiters friendly and chatty.

On arrival we were seated just inside the door and on a cold February night it was very draughty. However after asking to be moved when a table became free they did move us. I have eaten there at least ten times before and have always had an excellent meal. Our meals were just ok, and seemed like a poor... More
