We love going here for a Sunday lunch and this was a belated valentines treat. The food is so tasty and never disappoints especially the roast pork. Our little girl is very welcome too in the relaxed atmosphere. Service was only marked a 3 as we were forgotten for a while but the staff are lovely.

Amazing venue, lovely food - 4/6 dishes were amazing, venison carpaccio lacked acidity and meat was too thick. Chocolate fondant was perfectly baked but a little bland. Service was very slick although it felt a little rushed. The ambiance makes up for these minor failings. Considering we didn’t drink much it was over £100 for two people but worth it for a special occasion.

Very nice lunch experience. Main course was imaginative, tasty and interesting.
The people made the experience: warm friendly and very efficient. Would be nice to see the garden someone but Storm Dennis got in the way. We went early. It didn't get busy until nearly 1pm when it filled right up
Will go again.

Wonderful meal, as always. A magical restaurant with lovely seasonal food. The service is so good. We have been to Pythouse on numerous occasions and never been let down. It is always a treat to visit Pythouse both for the food snd the ambience. If you haven't been here before, a visit is a must. The garden looks wonderful throughout the year and it is so good to eat the produce from that garden. I highly recommend this place.
By the way...if you are getting married soon have your reception here....we did, and it was fabulous!

Food good and initially service good but as the place filled the service got slower to the extent we waited for over 30 mins for our dessert. Disappointing as everything else lived up to or exceeded expectations.

Scrumptious & Delicious. A Must Visit.

The location is wonderful even on a wet February Sunday. The restaurant is quirky, warm and welcoming. The staff were attentive and friendly. We had a scrumptious lunch followed by a delicious dessert. Highly recommend the Chicken roast, Black Bean Chilli, Panna Cotta Rhubarb, and Sticky Toffee Pudding. They also use bottled coke cola and not coke from the tap. When you drink a beautiful rum you don’t want tap coke as it’s mixer.!! That’s a sin! There is also a variety of teas and coffee for sale to take home.
Highly recommend a visit but book. Enjoy.

As stated above excellent in every way as per usual.
May I make a suggestion that the parking area needs a bit of attention as the puddles seem to be getting deeper , not necessarily for me but for the ladies!!

A warm and cosy atmosphere. Stephen gave a ya warm welcome, took us to our table and took drink orders promptly.
He went through the dietary notes we advised of on booking and the alternative was great.
Fantastic food and service. I like that the fresh produce is mainly procured from the extensive garden.
This evening made such a refreshing change for just dining out.
We will be watching for the next event. Highly recommend a visit here.

Terrific food and a lovely relaxed ambience. The staff were extremely attentive without being too noticeable. We had Pork and Beef mains and then followed up with Cheese to finish, all were absolutely beautiful. We would heartily recommend the Pythouse to anyone.

None of the information I had left on the opentable website had reached the staff at Pythouse.

So I had to phone them, the day before and repeat it all. By then, it was too late to order a birthday cake.

I had booked two weeks in advance for precisely this reason. But it did not work.

Food was excellent as always. Tickets were forgotten to be given to the kitchen and so food was slow. A round of drink was given free of charge due to this

Faultless food from a kitchen that clearly loves to use the garden. Wonderful ethos behind the restaurant and the kind of decor that makes you want to stay all day. Great service with a smile even on a busy day. Thanks PKG team, we will be back as soon as possible!

This is one of my very favourite restaurants. On my last visit I ordered the roasted hake with cauliflower textures - it was superb. The ambience and service are superb, great value for the money and good to feel that the ingredients have been sourced locally. I shall be back again soon.

Excellent Sunday lunch with plenty of choice and delicious food. Couldnt fault the quality at all and plenty of it plus extra vegetables. The only slight downfall is the second sitting hard on your heels so arrive early but that's a small price to pay!
