    Beautifully presented food on distinctive tableware. Varied menu of locally sourced meat fish and vegetables . Cooked to perfection. Desserts are OMG WOW. Absolutely delicious 3 course menu at less that £30 per person. Relaxed atmosphere with a nice beer garden.

    Daughter & partner arrived from London and decided on a Nice family outing to our favourite spot. Great night except for a rare steak arriving as well done. This was quickly sorted with apologies so a minor blemish on a lovely evening. Our London visitors were most impressed with the standard of food & service!

    We had a gorgeous meal here. We were in the outdoor area which was lovely. The food was exceptional, lots of variety to choose from. We had three courses each and everything was gorgeous. Staff lovely too, just the right amount of attention. Thanks very much, overall a really special treat.

    Loved our meal last night....would have maybe liked it hotter? We got a last minute table so we were sat upstairs on our own which is why I think service wasn't 100% and was very quiet not much atmosphere. Staff were lovely tho and food enjoyable.

    I always love going to Sleepy Hollow but I was a little disappointed with my main course, the duck. It was tough but nevertheless tasty. Everything else was to perfection.

    My wife and I were there for dinner, great food and service. One minor critisism is that the downstairs area can feel crowded and noisey if full but we will definitely return.

    Normally food is excellent at Sleepy Holloe but this meal the roast potatoes were hard and very greasy (basically could not eat them. The triple cooked chips were pretty overdone as well. rest of the meals were lovely and my steak cooked perfectly.
