Had dinner last night at the Thar and Feather. I had the venison, work mate had blue cod. Both of us were real happy with our meals. A great place to eat.

This is a nice and comfortable restaurant with a traditional menu, steak and chips, burger, fish etc. The portions are a big size so you will leave being very full up. The service is very good. As this is a fairly popular restaurant I would advise to book.

Great basic food, reasonably priced. Quite a good bar too. Can sit in bar, watch the cricket and still get the same great food that is served in the restaurant. Recommended

Another fantastic meal. We phoned to see if there was a table available as we were in between meetings. Food was quick service was great. I'm gluten free and it is never a problem to adjust a meal for me

We had a thoroughly enjoyable family birthday dinner here this week. Staff were all very friendly, attentive and courteous, making sure we were all very well looked after in terms of drinks. There was such a great selection on the menu that it was difficult to choose just one dish. Between us we had a salmon, chicken, pasta and 2... More

First of all: you need a reservation, cause this place is well known by the locals. And locals are around you when you eat here. I had fish, and my husband had a 500 grams (!) rumpsteak.

We went with a group from work for a birthday and enjoyed ourselves. I had the salmon pasta and it was a very generous portion and tasted amazing! My husband had one of the burgers witch came with two burgers! Again portion size was quite generous although he wasn't a massive fan of the patties. The staff were very lovely.... More
