    My daughter’s 29th birthday, my husband and I wanted to take her somewhere she hadn’t been and which had lots of fish dishes. It was really lovely and relaxed. Nice spacious table, lovely waiting staff, lovely menu all on a busy Friday night. Food delicious but really good and you get what you paid for. Need to order sides separately which can get pricey. Devi worth it though. Have been there several times with friends and also for lunch -really nice and a bit different in terms of the menu.

    Overall our visit to the Drumming Snipe was excellent. Food, staff & service were all first class. The only thing that was not so good was the seating outside, the wooden chairs became uncomfortable after a short time. Other than that, top marks all round.

    The Drumming Snipe is a pub with a restaurant but in this case, you do not get the usual fare of burger, fish and chips, scampi etc. Here, the chef is incredibly inventive and cares about the menu and the quality of the food he presents. I couldn't fault any one of my dishes. The sardine starter with a squid "ragout" were fabulous. I have been here on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed.

    Sat under the canopy which was lovely. Service good, food choice great - seafood Saturday didn’t disappoint, fish fresh & well presented. Good beer, great Pimms, overall very good value. Will definitely be back soon!

    We had dinner sitting outside on a beautiful summer evening. All the food was excellent - Monkfish and Sea Bass followed by Gooseberry Sundae. The chips we ordered never appeared - got cooked lettuce instead - and there was no service around to sort it out until we had finished our meals. A bit pricey for what we got, but overall a lovely setting and enjoyable meal.

    Very different to our previous experience about a month ago. Service was slow and somewhat indifferent. Food was good, although my goats cheese tart was nothing like the one I was served previously. I would probably have sent it back but given the indifferent service I didn’t bother.

    My 5 star rating was carefully considered. Some might view the prices as above average, but the food (quality over quantity), service and comfortable atmosphere mean the Drumming Snipe an excellent choice for the more discerning. Attention to detail from the owners and staff is high. And it's friendly.

    The decor and seating arrangements are very good with choices of inside, a patio under cover or in the garden as takes your fancy. Perhaps there was more of an emphasis towards seafood and another couple of meat dishes could have been offered to the lunchtime menu we chose. The staff were very helpful and always to hand so there was not long waiting for food to be served.

    Really tasty, well-presented food with excellent, smiley service. They don't have a mocktail menu but were very happy to make something for me based on my favourite flavour. Theres a good lunch set menu for reasonable prices. The outdoor patio was really stylish but the garden was a bit dull and didn't have the same stylish vibe.

    The service was excellent. Very polite and attentive staff. The restaurant was very clean, with a fun atmosphere, perfect for couples and parties. The quality of the food was very good, and well displayed. The only criticism I have, is that if you are a meat eater, but no a fish eater or want a vegetarian meal, the menu is limited.

    We took a friend out for lunch and all of us thoroughly enjoyed it . As it was a weekday, the restaurant was not full, so I do not know what ambience, service and quietness might be like on a weekend or evening, but the staff were very pleasant to talk to and deal with and we will be going back.

    For us this is fairly local ,and we were here last December for our daughter's birthday; she is vegetarian and liked those options on the menu. The menu is very different from that of other local restaurants and so we chose it for our Wedding Anniversary lunch. Lovely Summer Set menu with something for everyone, beautifully presented and delicious (all three courses). Great service and very nice ambience. So nice to go out and find food well above the usual standard of the area, we'll definitely be back.

    Great service paired with a lovely early evening meal in a clean spacious pub (we had the trout, the plaice and the shepherds pie with cutlet). Was impressed with the hot Apple Tart for 2 (it was big enough for 4) with custard which hit the spot after a filling main.
