I have visited Sleepy Hollow before but for evening meals. This was a lunch time visit to celebrate my sisters birthday. Food and service were both excellent.

Food is fantastic but we had a table booked for 18:45 and we were told at 20:00 that they needed our table for 20:30. Took a lot longer this time to have our meal served, then it felt like we were rushed out. Very disappointed as we have been a few times and service has always been outstanding. Manager did take our desserts off the bill but I just feel so disappointed. I unfortunately won't be back.

Lovely evening was spent at Sleepy Hollow.
Lovely cosy atmosphere.
The food was exceptional. The Venison cooked to perfection..... and the choice of 3 mini deserts were to die for.
We will be back many more times

The food was absolutely incredible... both presentation and taste
Fantastic value for money
The only downside was that we booked a table for 3pm but upon arrival we were told that as the kitchen closes at 3pm we needed to order food straight away. The experience felt rushed so perhaps changing the latest booking time before 3pm would be helpful
Apart from that service was prompt, staff friendly and food was outstanding!

We like Sleepy Hollow very much and would come more often if we could get a table - testament to its popularity!!
The food is interesting, well presented and very good, though what it says on the menu does not always appear on the table.
If you are after a quiet dinner, I would not recommend as it is very noisy, perhaps we were unlucky!

Always an amazing experience and owners and waiters really nice and helpful. Carefully selected ingredients, delicious taste and beautifully presented. Sleepy Hollow is one of our all-time favourites! Strongly recommend the ox cheeks, any braised beef and the sticky toffee pudding, you cannot find any better elsewhere.

Sleepy Hollow is consistently excellent whether it be lunch time or evening! It is lovely to enjoy a different take on an old favourite - I had their chowder - so delicious! What was also so lovely was the fact that there was no rush - we sat on for ages - typical when two friends haven’t seen each other in a long time! Thank you for another great meal!

We had a delightful time, food was delish but the star of the show here is the staff. The gentleman on the front door was a delight, warm, welcoming and all round lovely guy. The servers were lovely, and always helpful. The bill was made up quickly and we were in and out in smooth manner but in no way rushed at all. I will recommend sleepy hollow to anyone who asks. Fabulous place and fabulous people.

Booked a table last minute and was delighted that they could accommodate us. We had lunch and the menu choice was superb, the only issue was trying to decide which meal to have as they all sounded great. We had all 3 courses and I cannot even find one niggly fault with any aspect of the meal, the service, the establishment....nothing... not one single thing to say negative. The staff are fantastic and we felt welcomed and relaxed which just made the meal even better. Hats off to the chefs you deserve every compliment coming your way, what a delightful menu to showcase local food cooked to an excellent and creative standard. I love coming to Sleepy Hollow and I can't wait for my next visit.
