This establishment is family run and they are absolutely lovely, attentive and make you feel most welcome. The food is made from scratch and is scrummy and it was nice to see the chef come out and ask if we enjoyed our meal. A very pleasant atmosphere and I would highly recommend. We were a table setting of over 20... More

I have eaten at Sherlocks several times over the past three years and most recently, last week. The food has always been enjoyable, often outstanding and it ,together with the wine is very good value. The restaurant is (was) correctly advertised as 'quirky' and I feel this adds to the charm and sets it apart from most others locally. It... More

Dispite rumour to the contrary Joan and sherlocks have not been closed down by environmental health nor has she retired. She has however had a nasty scare and promised her regulars that she will take good care of herself to ensure her cooking for the future. My partner and a friend had dinner on her (re)opening night last week and... More

The dinner on Friday was great. It was so good to be at Sherlocks again. Our guests were delighted too. Glad to know you are better now and have been able to open again. Welcome back, and keep up the good work.

Thankfully after a break due to having a heart attack!!! Joan is back. Oh how Mavis and myself have missed our favourite Restaurant. We enjoyed a delightful evening on Joan's first Evening back last Thursday. As usual the food, atmosphere and service was second to none, that is why i am so surprised to read AmyJ's review. Correct me if... More

We visited as a party of 15 plus two children and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The service was great, despite the restaurant being full and whatever was resquested in the way of drinks, were served quickly and efficiently. As you would expect with a party, there were a variety of different menu requests both for starters and main courses and... More

Sherlocks has been on my list of places to visit since I moved in to the area a couple of years ago, so I've been waiting on that special occasion to occur to give me a reason to visit, as its not the cheapest place around. Recent events have given us good cause to go out and celebrate a new... More

We are always disappointed when customers are not happy at Sherlocks, but we are equally disappointed when they do not take the opportunity to mention any concerns during their time with us. In this instance both my waiter and I recall asking you if you were satisfied with the meal, and you raised no concerns. Overall, I am happy with... More
