    My daughter gave us a gift of a meal, and we chose The Berwick Inn which is only 35 mins from home. Very welcoming stall member we met, excellent service even though there was several other customers during the lunchtime period. Great food and an excellent Irish coffee that my wife had. We will definitely be back soon.

    Found it by accident in the summer and had a great meal and the people were lovely and so professional and welcoming. Decided to have a walk and a Sunday Dinner and if anything it was even better. A full house shows that they are doing it right and they fully deserve the 5 stars Just a fantastic pub and a great bunch of people Can’t wait to go again!!

    There was adequate room in the car park even though it was very busy. The venue is adhering to the covid regulations well, with separate pathways for walking in and out. A nice touch was a small bottle of sanitiser on the table. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, but as in previous reviews, there was quite a wait before drinks were served and the Sunday roast took a while to come out too. There appeared to be a choice of only chicken and beef for the roast, we were hoping for lamb as it had been mentioned in previous reviews. The food was very good, I'd have given 9/10 if there had been an option instead of either 4 or 5 stars. The price for roast beef was £15.00 but as an add on, I thought the cauliflower cheese was a bit expensive at £3.50. As the whole experience was a very pleasant one, I have no hesitation in recommending the Berwick Inn for Sunday roast, and I will certainly be returning in the future.

    Amazing food and amazing people! We go regularly as we know the food and service is always impeccable. The fairy lights around the bar and open fire make for such a cosy lovely experience indoors and the grape vine terrace is a beautiful calm place to sit also. Everyone who works there are super lovely and inviting, making you feel welcome every time. There is always something new to try on the menu and everything is always delicious and amazingly high quality, the vegetarian roast for example is out of this world!!! The seabass special was heavenly and their lime and ginger cheesecake was mind blowingly creamy! Their covid protocols were very efficient, well thought out and implemented making you feel safe and respected as a diner. Thank you for becoming our favourite place to eat out, you are all awesome and we will see you again very soon!

    We had a lovely experience at the Berwick Inn, the food was of good quality and very tasty. The service was excellent particularly from Sally who was very attentive and helpful. The whole place was welcoming and well laid out, the staff were clearly following health and safety guidelines in line with COVID 19, which was reassuring. I would go back again in the future. Thank-you to the whole team.

    We were disappointed that the Salmon wasn’t on the menu & that the chips with the battered fish were frozen, & like Macdonalds fries, instead of as previously when we had Chunky chips in a separate container
