                                        Our food was excellent and obviously freshly prepared from good quality ingredients. The staff are friendly and attentive and give great advice on the menu. First class.

                                        Couldn’t fault the food or service, both excellent but the deco is extremely tired and in need of some attention. Could be quite off putting on entering the building. However it will not stop me returning.

                                        Wonderful food, recommend the dark chocolate cherry on malt biscuit base. Service was very good despite them being very busy. Was there twice in a week (family get together s) and looking forward to next visit already.

                                        The food was superb and the service was generally of a high standard too, but we were waiting quite a while trying to catch someone’s attention to order the wine. One more waiting staff would’ve been appropriate for how busy it was but everyone there was working very hard and doing a great job.

                                        I had mackerel pate to start which I thought could have been tastier. I had duck for main which was fabulous! My husband had scallops for starter and pork for mains which were both excellent. Hadn't been for a while but won't be leaving it as long to return the next time.

                                        We dined at the Sleepy Hollow on Sunday and as it was a sunny afternoon we ate outside. Food was very nice indeed and service was good.

                                        We had a family Sunday lunch to celebrate a 75th birthday. When we arrived the table was ready for us and staff were very helpful taking the birthday cake we had brought into the kitchen to be brought to the table later. All the staff were pleasant and efficient and very helpful, The food was delicious with a good selection on the menu. We will definitely be back.

                                        First time at Sleepy Hollow! Why have I not gone before? This was honestly one of the Best meals I have had in years. The restaurant is cosy and had a relaxed, friendly vibe. The staff were knowledgable and efficient also. Have already booked a return visit. 10/10. Thank you!

                                        Over priced and pretentious. Service wasn't great either. The environment was very noisy in such a confined space.

                                        1st class restaurant in every way but I do wish they would change their menu if you intend to return again and again.
