First time we visited and we were really impressed with the food, great choice and taste with a very friendly team.
We enjoyed our evening how ever I was a little disappointed on choice. However what we ordered was really nice and the service was great. X
Food excellent, service very good. Nice atmosphere
Love this restaurant and the staff are really friendly, efficient and good at what they do. Only marked down on this occasion as one meal was dry - halloumi and chickpea burger, otherwise very good....pork belly was delicious!
Fabulous food & service, as always, have been a few times. Only negative was the restaurant was cold, I had to put my coat round my shoulders to keep warm.
As a post Christmas birthday lunch, there were so many lovely alternatives to turkey. Spoiled for choice.
Good drinks to go with good food in a nice setting - takes a lot of beating
Excellent food and polite service. The waiters could have been a little more confident, cheerful and welcoming considering it was Christmas. Overall though we were there because we like the decor and atmosphere and, most importantly, the food speaks for itself - delicious.
Food and service was good but unfortunately very cold next to the windows which spoilt the evening - eating in coats is not ideal in a restaurant! Also quite noisy even though not very busy.
Excellent Sunday Lunch, the Roast Beef is delicious 😀
Everything apart from some undercooked calamari was wonderful
Lovely service, great food, great atmosphere.....only suggestion is to warm the Ladies as they were freezing! All the rest was fab......will be back again!
Really lovely evening at the Beeches - lovely food and great service but ambience just a little bit difficult to judge as we had a booking on the same night as a sizeable 'office christmas party' - it was good to see people having fun but they were so loud it was really difficult to hear anything else - no ones's fault, just unfortunate. But we will definitely go back.
Lovely restaurant, great menu, good value, will definitely return.
Superb food and wonderful service as always. Bar and waiting staff work hard to make sure you have a good time.
Excellent food and a lovely atmosphere. We always choose this restaurant when we want to have a special family meal as we are rarely disappointed
The soup was OK, both our the chicken were returned as they were tough (maybe pre-prepared & reheated as lunch was just beginning): the replacement fish was fine, but the chips mediocre.
Place was noisy - with echoes. This could have been avoided with softer walls/tables/curtaining - something absorbent.
Staff not too attentive.
Not a good meal.
Beeches has become a regular meeting place for me. We meet about 1130, have a coffee while we talk, then have a great lunch. That’s how I like to do business.
I had a very enjoyable time at the beeches bar and grill. I had taken my daughter, son in law, and grandson for a family lunch. The waiter was very attentive and didn’t object to me sampling various wines before I ordered a glass. The food was very good and having a lovely view certainly made it a very enjoyable occasion. My young grandson enjoyed the garden area were he could have a good run a round playing tig with his nan.
My friend and I visited on Monday lunchtime and both chose from the prix fixe menu. She chose the goats cheese tart for starter and I had the garlic mushrooms on ciabatta which were good. We then both went for the Salmon on minted pea risotto and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact I would go to say it probably the best risotto I've ever had! Well done Chef!
This is a good place to eat out. Lovely dining room and views. Sunday lunch is particularly good. I think that the other menu needs looking at. When I booked I said it was for a birthday but that was not acknowledged at all.
Thoroughly enjoyed it and excellent value but we did find it very noisy and this spoilt an otherwise lovely evening. Think it was the echo coming off the wooden flooring . Would definitely go again but earlier to avoid the noise.
Been a few times now and it has never disappointed
Staff are friendly and pleasant and make you feel welcome
The menu has lots of variety and there should be something on there to suite everyone, there is also specials which is really very good value for money and a number of our party ordered off this. The food is lovely and will not disappoint.
Overall not the cheapest but worth the money
The food is consistently well cooked and presented. Also a daily lunch special menu. A real gem.
The food was excellent and the service good, but the experience was spoilt by the level of noise. For some reason, probably to do with the room, the volume of conversational noise was too much. We took a friend and found it hard going to listen to each other.
Secondly we waited half an hour for our meal, and were told that the head chef had just walked out.
The food was great and so was the service.
A lovely lunch with a friend, who was extremely impressed with her first visit to The Beeches. Excellent service as ever.
Odd that car park was full, but restaurant was empty, appeared that they had rented out the car park to the village hall next door meaning their customers had nowhere to park. Not really an option to park on the road. Told the staff, but they just said to park wherever you can. Drink was flat, gas had gone apparently. Not a great experience, you kind of felt just being there was putting them out somewhat. Probably why it was virtually empty. A shame, because the food was pretty good.
Really disappointed last night with both the food and the service. I ordered the ‘shredded’ duck pancakes but instead of shredded the duck was in big fatty clumps more like wedges...I understand duck is fatty but this was absolutely awful. I stopped eating and waited for a while for someone as usual to come over and ask ‘is everything ok with your meal’ but in the end I had to call someone over. The waitress didn’t say much but to be fair did say ‘what else would you like’ by this time I really didn’t want anything & My partner had finished eating....Nobody came to us after that. We had to ask for the bill which was really strange as yet again nothing was said about our experience....the cost of the duck had been removed but it was not even mentioned. Just felt really let down as it’s not a low end establishment and expectations were not met.
Really nice food, had a mix of starters and then the beef Wellington which was top notch. In the week the gourmet society Card gives you 2 4 1 on mains which makes it more competitive
Good food and friendly efficient service.
Excellent lamb and venison main courses.
Very good value.
Fabulous food, great value. Arrived early and seated straight away.
The beeches never Disappoints us regarding the food - only one small gripe is that it can get noisy but this is only because of the building acoustics.
The food was very good. Well presented by attentive but not intrusive service.
The venue was noisy and the "In" door to the kitchen was constantly banging (perhaps a less aggressive closing device would improve this. This is why the ambience as rated as fair.
However overall the experience was positive and I would consider visiting again, perhaps at a less busy time!
Mu husband took a business colleague for a meal. He said food and service were very good.
Meal out with our neighbours and we try to choose somewhere that has an interesting menu and reasonable wine list. Food was extremely good, tasty, interesting and plenty of it without compromising quality. My wife and I had halibut with pea risotto and were surprised to find a second filet beneath the first. Scallops got rave reviews. Wine list is not massive but reasonable prices and enough variety. Real ale on tap was a bonus. The atmosphere is bustling but not over noisy and very pleasant. Service was OK, attentive enough but it did feel as if there should have been one more member of the waiting staff. Not a real problem but noticeable. Going into the bar afterwards to have an after dinner beer was extremely pleasant and a thoroughly enjoyable evening was had by all. We all agreed we would be very happy to go back. Highly recommended.
Heard a few bad reviews about this place but when we got there we had a lovely evening and the food was very nice, would highly recommend
Very nice restaurant/bar. I had the sea bass - perfectly cooked. Visiting from USA - wanted to escape convention meeting crowds. Beeches was exactly what I was looking for. Highly recommended.
Superb menu, Superb restaurant & bar, overall... Superb
Meal for 8 people. Full menu as well as Sunday Roast options. Liked the service, efficient and friendly and not fawning.
The biggest problem was the noise level in the bar and restaurant which was horrendous. We found it really hard to hear each other and there were only 3 in our party. The food was also very bland and not worth the high prices which was disappointing as we were celebrating my son's 21st. I have absolutely no desire to rush back or recommend The Beeches to others.
