Three of us dropped in for an early dinner last Sunday. First of all, I was really surprised how busy it was, especially considering the time of day and also the time of year. Both my friends had the roast beef lunch (£13.45) and I had the steak burger (£12.95). My friend's lunch came with all the trimmings and looked... More

Visited here for lunch during the break between Christmas and New Year. This place is always busy so it was no wonder that we were limited on tables. We ordered a main course each and drinks. Due to being a busy time of year, service wasn't amazing. Everyone was polite enough but it just felt as though something was missing..... More

Our group of 5 adults had dinner there on 23rd December 2016. We were left standing at the restaurant bar for 15 minutes, waiting to attract the attention of any of the plentiful staff passing by to take notice of us and be willing to direct us to our table as booked. The food on plates passing our table as... More

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and generally found the food well presented and appetising. The service is usually good, though on one visit, less prompt than required. I put this down to staff change overs. However, this review is to remind people that coffee is served from 11am and accompanied, on this occasion, by some delicious white... More

Visited here for the first time with work friends and it won't be the last visit! Lovely homely feel which makes you feel comfortable straight away. We were led straight to our table and the service was impeccable all through the night. The wait between each course was just right. We never waited waited too long and never felt rushed... More

We often visit the Hand and Trumpet, never disappointed. A good menu, great staff and fantastic local craft beers. I would recommend the lamb or beef dishes and The Brew Foundation range of beers. Well done keep up the good work.

We visited for lunch on the 13 December, despite being disappointed the last time in September. My friend had been the week previously in the evening and had a good meal. Two of us ordered the child's portion fish & chips and the chips were dry, tasteless oven chips.Why would a restaurant have cheap, frozen oven chips? My other friend... More

Had lunch with some friends from work last week (mid week) and it was very good. Service was great, food was excellent and the atmosphere was nice and relaxing. We had various meals between us, all of which looked great but my 'Cod loin' with choritzo on a bed of lentils was extremely tasty. I had visited the pub back... More
