My partner and I were in the area for the weekend and thought we would make a reservation to have dinner. Beautiful food (although my portion of the risotto was rather large and couldn't eat it all) been a few times love the atmosphere and the staff are lovely, have already recommended to a few people! Lovely place to eat.

Great food with an extensive menu catering brilliantly for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. I'm not used to having such a variety of vegetarian dishes so we were spoilt for choice and look forward to returning and sampling other options. Staff very professional and ambiance stunning, I liken it to a top class city restaurant..party of 6 all extremely satisfied.

Our dinner was a double birthday party and the staff were excellent helping us celebrate. The food was outstanding, with perfectly cooked tender meats, unique and delicious combinations (Christmas spiced smoked salmon!) and expert presentation. By far one of the best restaurants I've eaten at in a long time, and very reasonably priced. Definitely a place worth travelling to, can't wait to go back.

We always try to have a meal, usually lunch when we are up North which is usually 6 times per annum. We are never disappointed. Innovative food with very good presentation. Very good value for money with a drink included for Sunday lunch.

A family, birthday celebration lunch at Anderson's was a great choice. With our food requirements ranging through vegan to 5 year-old specifics being exceptionally handled we all enjoyed a very tasty and enjoyable experience. Without doubt this venue, which was excellent value for money, will feature on our "must revisit" list for future occasions as it certainly gets a double thumbs-up from Grandaughter through to Grandmother; and all in-between who experienced the occasion. Well done to all the staff who are successfully working hard to provide a great service.

We have visited Andersons on numerous occasions and it is a favourite restaurant of ours when in the area. The ambience is laid back, cosy and intimate at the same time. The menu is varied, using local ingredients and we are always more than happy with the wine choices. Great value for money. Service is excellent, friendly and attentive. The ice cream is a must!

This is my third visit to Andersons and I was not disappointed the food is amazing and the menu is different every visit which makes this place so special. The staff are very attentive and polite the price is great for a lunch time, yet to visit on an evening but will definitely be doing so in the future.

We're local and have been several times before, so we knew why we were going. Surprised to find they did not do non-alcoholic beer. Had a non-alcohol cocktail instead, but it was a bit wish washy and full of ice. Beer would have been better. Choice of puddings other than ice cream very limited - maybe that's just what they do. But the atmosphere, service and main courses were good. And it's in the right place for where we live, so we'll be going again.

Great find. Staying at Boat of Garten Hotel, we had passed this on way in. After a short walk, and look at menu outside and reviews on Trip advisor, we booked online. Great place, fab food, wonderful home made bread ( confused as menu said "ask for more at no extra charge" to be told £2.95) . Great steak! Wonderful presentation. Attentive staff. Throughly enjoyed the whole experience and Will return next time in area. I would advise early booking!

La comida es sabrosa y tiene un cierto toque tradicional.
El café no es bueno, más teniendo una buena cafetera como parece, deberían aprender a hacer un buen expresso o no venderlo como tal.
En general la comida muy buena (pechuga de pollo rellena de hagis y roast beef). Para colmo la base de la pechuga de pollo que era unas gachas de avena debían tener una piedrecita, muy pequeña que me rompió una muela.
El postre (un pudding de chocolate blanco con pistacho y naranja) tenía mejor pinta que sabor, no me gustó mucho, muy empalagoso.
En general le daría un 6,5

Had booked several days in advance but were still squeezed into that extra little table by the door, where people come and go right behind your chair - despite my request to be seated elsewhere. Presumably the several unoccupied tables had been specifically reserved by people who had been there before and knew to request a particular table. This was another restaurant where the restauranteur has not attended to the necessary logistics of the relative height of the chair to the table. I am of average height but the low chair put the tabletop at sternum level so that, in combination with perching by the door, I was uncomfortable and self conscious throughout. Perhaps my impression of the food would have been more favourable had I not felt that I had been consigned to 'the naughty stool'.

We know Andersons and booked Wednesday which is "pie night". Excellent value. There is a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and the staff are exceptional - friendly and helpful. Service prompt and attentive. The food is of a very high standard. We booked a second night and again enjoyed the experience.
