Always great to visit Sleepy Hollow. Whether it is for lunch, early bird or evening a la carte. I always bake sure they when I go home I make at least one visit to Sleepy Hollow.

Great value and great fare. Wine list is not extensive but still has a quality feel to it.

Great team on board who look after everyone extremely well.

Looking forward to the next trip

Food is fab really enjoyable, great price and tastes amazing.
However a few things to improve the overalk experience
1. I hate the paper table cloths over the linen. It is tacky, cheap and nasty looking!!! I can understand that it protects the table but in a restaurant with food like this its a no no.
2. Not overly child friendly. Menu was fine but no children's cups/glass, no colouring in offered and finally food not served in a practical manner for a child.
3. Finally i hate the desserts being placed on slates. I watched a programme highlighting the difficulties that restaurants had in cleaning these slates. I just dont personally like my food being served on them.

I would recommend Sleepy Hollow to family and friends based on food. Its always excellent and of a very high standard. Excellent value for money. The service however was average. The waiter (older gentleman) who served us was not very friendly when we arrived. We didn't feel welcomed. I'm not sure if it was because we had our children with us who are extremely well behaved. This has been the second time we have felt this way with the same waiter. Service with a smile and a more welcoming manner goes a long way.

Great menu, fantastic ingredients, brilliant service. Very accommodating to our party of 9 including a nine month old baby and vegan. Best value restaurant I've visited. I have paid considerably more for meals of lower quality on many occasions. Their own IPA is the cherry on top for me, very tasty.

This place is ok, food was nice, service was pleasant, bar was slow. Good for a quiet bite to eat, probably over priced for what it is. We had a nice time

Felt the service was very slow. Only 1 bottle of water on table, and had to ask to refill 4 times. Wasn't offered any more drinks. Waitress seemed stressed.

Have dined at sleepy hollow before and food was always lovely and service and attentiveness was great. However arrived on Sunday 15th for lunch to be greeted by a harassed looking man who showed us to our table gave us a menu and then left. We waited 10 mins before I attracted the same man who was clearing and setting the table across from us. He apologised and said they had a large party in the other room.. Are we as single diners less important than the big group.? Anyway we waited again and our drinks arrived. We nabbed him then to give him our order but had we not, I guess we would have waited longer.. Meal arrived, my starter was delicious but my friends broth was luke warm and barley was hard. His main was venison and was as tough as oldboots. Venison should be melt in your mouth, like fillet steak. Being 2 Sundays from Christmas, there was no Christmas crackers, black paper napkins and not any sign of decorations except a measly wooden garland. On the whole we were extremely disappointed and would think twice before returning and will be telling our friends about our experience.

Perfect dinner for birthday celebrations. I would have preferred the old room but other than everything was great. Food and service were superb as usual. First time our friends were there and they too will be back. Highly recommended

We had a wonderful meal at Sleepy Hollow. The food was amazing as always.
It was a Christmas menu with a good variety of choices for both starter and main course. I had the prawns for starter and the beef dish for my main course. Both were delicious. The miniature desserts were fabulous too!

Once again , food was excellent. The restaurant was lovely and warm as it was a cold wet evening. Hospitality was excellent. Very pleasant staff and always a warm welcome with a smile. Price was very reasonable, for the quality of food and wine. Nice peaceful atmosphere , could have a conversation . Not really a young family place , which is great for us more mature bodies.
Only down side was a spot light directly above our table which blinded my husband , fix the spot lights and it’s the perfect place. Will be back without a doubt.

Well worth the trip to visit. High quality food. Only small issue was one dessert of spiced pears that wasn’t to our taste but otherwise exceeded expectations. Recommended
