In my own back yard and I had never heard of this place. Went for dinner with a friend, the decor is incredible and sets the scene for a pretty interesting dining experience. The food is largely carnivorous, but seemly cooked to perfection. Highly recommended if you are a lover of fine meat and craft beer.

Wombles.... stunning venue, homely decor and absolutely incredible service from both the staff and the Owner. The Owner is attentive and explains the menue and specials to you herself, she serves some of the menue items like the Steak Tartare herself as well. The new venue is huge and tonight a Saturday mid-month it was full to the brim, but... More

Wombles is one of my favourite restaurants and u was very concerned that in the move to Branston much of the charm I so enjoy would be lost. Imagine my absolute delight to discover that the charm, menu and service standards have remained. Wombles is much improved as there are more seats available and you can actually now get a... More

The welcome starts at the front gate and carries on throughout your stay. The owners have put a lot of thought into the decor which is old colonial in style and have some really interesting pieces. Our hosts were a little disappointed we were not in the main restaurant but soon changed their minds when we sat down in a... More

Had a really good meal with good wine but really thought the meal was overpriced - I hate restaurants that have a minimum spend per person - and they do. Felt that the steak at the Baron down the road was equally tasty - not sure i will be back soon

The new Wombles combines big and cosy, good service and delicious food, and is not for the faint walleted! The pub boasts a superb whisky menu, and you cannot be in a rush here - the outside world evaporates whether you're sipping your nectar by the fireplace, or eating in comfort in an old colonial atmosphere with canvas ceilings, and...

Absolutely love everything about Wombles! The food is sublime (and hands down one of the best streaks I have ever had) and the new location is superb (with the most awesome outside 'lounge' seating and fire pits to keep warm on those cold winter nights)!

Not your typical city restaurant. this feels more like a country cottage. Great food and wine. Old world service.

This is one of those old style restaurants that serves you like you are a king. The steaks are amazing. it is a little bit expensive but worth every penny.
