When I arrived it wasn’t open and I got an email from open table the day before to confirm am going. I understand that in this current situation and hints are up and down but I am so annoyed

Arrived to Sleepy Hollow for what I thought was a booking for my mum’s birthday! On arrival place in darkness no one about, place closed however still allowed to book online? Very disappointed! Poor couple also in car park thinking they had a reservation for their anniversary only to be equally disappointed.

Delicious food, slightly frazzled service but this appeared to be because it was the night before lockdown, noise level too high but this was due to one rowdy table which is difficult to mitigate against from the point of view of the venue. Overall, would definitely be coming back.

Our regular choice for unique and delicious dining. Staff always friendly, inc really friendly new staff. Beautiful Champagne & Rose Champagne (tried both bottles!) and the presentation as well as quality of food is always constantly great. Look forward to being back after the government restrictions are over.

Second time we've been there over Covid and must say very impressed with how staff handle the service. Face coverings worn at all times and kept distance where possible at all times. Love the food and a great selection from menu for lunch menu.

Despite the restrictions Sleepy Hollow has adapted brilliant. The system for entering and exiting the building is well planned and the distance between the tables is enough to make you feel safe. The food was excellent as always. Being able to download and plan your meal is also a bonus if you don't want to be handling menus.
Staff were very helpful and friendly.
Already looking forward to my next visit.

Food was impeccable and the staff were fantastic. The only issues were that we were seated in a small room beside a radiator and the fire was on so it was far too warm, and truthfully the tables were a little to close for comfort for us with the current climate. It would be 5 stars all around if the social distancing was a little better and the radiator was turned down.

Travelled an hours drive just to eat here as I was treating my partner for a meal for his birthday . We both ordered the scallops for starter and waited 45mins before it arrived , when it did arrive it was lukewarm plus the portion was ridiculously tiny . It was beautiful to taste and I'd give 10/10 for presentation but it was really unfortunate we had to wait so long for it to arrive and when it did it was almost cold . We were so hungry we just eat it anyway we couldn't bare to wait anymore . We both ordered the rib eye steak for mains along with chips , onion rings and champ to share , we waited 25 mins before it arrived , the portion of chips was very small too so we ordered another portion .The chips and onion rings were full of grease . I had pre ordered a suprise birthday dessert on the open table app but because we waited so long for the starter and main i ended up telling my partner I pre ordered him a birthday dessert and we both agreed we wanted to just leave because we knew it would probably take ages to arrive . Wel not be returning as we feel really let down and disappointed.

First time dining at Sleepy Hollow last night. Absolutely delicious dinner.
Beautiful cosy surroundings. Very friendly attentive staff. My husband really enjoyed the special home brew beer. Couldn't have chose a better place to go on our wedding anniversary. Worth the 80 mile round trip. Looking forward to going back in the near future.
