Lady asked us 3 times if we ready to order and only started looking. Hadn’t been sitting 3 minutes. When we paid with vouchers she ranted a bit as they were out of date. Even though with lockdowns I had telephoned twice and told they would be honoured.

Servings are very small
Obviously fine dining at its best
Service was mediocre as I felt it was all a bit rushed and we had to ask for more drink. I’d at least would have expected to be asked at best. Waited an hour for our starter
At no point were we asked if everything “was to our satisfaction “
Standard in any restaurant !!
The food was good for what it was but just a little on the small size. I did leave hungry!!

Have been to sleepy hollow a few times in the past & had lovely meals however last night was not up to previous standards especially the desserts which previously we have really enjoyed the choices of the mini desserts last night they had ran out of alot & what we ordered was poor & not value for money

Sleepy Hollow was exactly that, a beautiful little restaurant down a country lane. The service was warm and friendly and the food was exquisite. The background music was perfectly pitched.
I will definitely be returning to try out the rest of the menu.

I have already recommended Sleepy Hollow to friends.

Entrance from rear of restaurant unfortunately on bin collecting day. We drove past it not realising it was the Sleepy Hollow. That aside I was very impressed with the food. The view from the front of the building is beautiful.

Really disappointed as this was my wife’s birthday dinner
Menu not an early evening menu as advertised
Food too many flavours on the plate so couldn’t actually taste anything properly
Service was slow and asked for the pepper 3 times
3 courses for £24.50 didn’t happen as advertised
Overall wouldn’t recommend or go back

We had dinner here for the first time yesterday.
The restaurant is lovely, it's quite small and has a lovely atmosphere.
The staff were very pleasant and the door was lovely.
We will certainly be back again.
The only issue we had was the car park is small and we were lucky that someone was leaving and we got parked.

A lot of things we asked for from drinks to straws and gas for the patio heaters outside the reason none of these were available was due to supplier issues. I ordered the special which was steak there really wasn’t anything special about it I’ve had nicer in a pub! when I ordered dessert it arrived with hair baked into it I notified the waitress her reply was none of our chefs have hair upon leaving the restaurant 2 chefs walked past me both with full head of hair overall very disappointing

The quality of food & the service was excellent as always. My only disappointment was that the early evening menu wasn’t available which personally has had better choices on it for both myself and my wife on previous occasions. Unfortunately this was not known to me until I was actually sitting in the restaurant and was planning on ordering from it. The menu on open table for the restaurant also needs updated as I was told it was about 4 years out of date.

My Wife and I have been going here for a long time and normally we both love it. We even had our wedding reception here. It was our 2 year anniversary and we went with our usual expectations of a great meal and good service. However, the service was very lacking as we only got one drink with our meals and we were not asked if we would like any more during the 3 courses. The starter although tasty was very small compared to normal and seemed to be missing something. The main Turkey dinner was fine but again it just wasn’t the same as normal. My Wife’s dessert must have been chilled too long as the base or her tort was hard as a rock and my sticky toffee pudding was dry with a tiny amount of toffee sauce and none of the advertised rum, coconut or pineapple. All in all it was a disappointing night for us and it worry’s me as I always recommend Sleepy Hollow to people in work, but now I will have to see if things improve before I do that again.

The quality of the food and service are outstanding. Sleepy Hollow is hard to beat. Best chips. While the meat dishes are a culinary feast, the vegetarian option doesn’t disappoint either. Love, love, love it!

Hi, food is outstanding as per last visits, but set menu was disappointing compared to normal menu. I believe set menu is on Sunday. I would not visit again until I checked normal menu available.
