If you haven't been yet then you really need to go. The butchers is a cosy warm friendly pub that serves fantastic good. The ambience is great. Customer service is superb.

Visited as part of a works Xmas meal. We received a warm welcome from the staff and were shown to our table. The food was lovely with quite large potions available. Would definitely revisit.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The roaring fire in the bar, friendly staff, excellent service & beautiful food made for a lovely evening. As always the food was excellent with huge portions. Yes, it might be a little more expensive than your run of the mill pub, but that's because this is restaurant quality... More

Not many restaurants will accommodate 8 people with only 20mins warning, but the Butchers did last Wednesday. We enjoyed the usual great food and were served by the friendly staff. This impressed all of us as we were there half an hour before they stopped serving, they could have been tired and grumpy, if they were they certainly didn't show... More

Well worth a quick detour off the main road to this village pub. Great chips. Both our meals were delicious and very filling so we didn't have starters or dessert. Will definitely go back.

Lovely food, shame about the service!! Been a few times and food has always been spot on but this time felt like we were being rushed to finish our food and watched to see if we had finished our course! Even if it was busy, we shouldn't have been made to feel like that! Then bill was also chucked on... More

Very good indeed!!! Prompt service from the front door as we walked in. Good selection on the menus and the choices we made were homemade and delicious! Great standard and as we left a quick chat to the owner who wanted feedback!!! Deserves all the plaudits they receive!

Sorry to say that this restaurant was not what we hoped it would be. In our opinion the meals were overpriced for what they were and the quality produced. We hoped that dessert would make up for it but unfortunately not to be. Perhaps it was because it was nearly Christmas, perhaps an off night but whatever the reason it... More

An absolutley superb meal today, a delicious and superbly cooked Sirloin Steak with all the trimmings. Not usually one for Sirloin this was well worth the choice. Everything homemade as well, it was very difficult not indulging in the Desserts menu but was too full after the steak. Service from staff was excellent all very welcoming and chatty

Went as a family meal, great food and service! Gammon was very delicious and great portion size! All home made, well worth a visit! Homemade cheesecake was one of my favourite cheesecakes I've tasted! Can't wait to visit again!
