    The drinks were good - good selection of wines. Staff were friendly and helpful. We were very disappointed in the food, especially as we had heard such great things about the Sunday roasts! My friend ordered the pork with crackling and received one slice and no crackling. He did ask for more and they obliged, but the crackling had run out. The roast potatoes were very dry and had probably been cooked much earlier in the day. Not enough vegetables, even after we had requested some extras. Half a carrot and half a parsnip and 2 small roasties.... Veggie wellington was overly sweet and a bit claggy. The had run out of most of the desserts. Despite all this, staff were lovely and we did have a fun time together. But the Sunday roast was very disappointing.

    Staff was very friendly food was bad, they had run out of sirloin and rump steak so we had fillet it was tough as old boots. There was four of us all having fillet steak every steak was the same worse fillet steak ever. Don’t know what’s happened to the place but going downhill Two had prawn cocktail no bread what’s all that about need bread. The only great part of the night was the drinks. Need to give this place a miss.

    Took my parents for lunch . Very cold in restaurant. Waited a long time for drinks order. Had Christmas lunch, food was tepid, vegetables chewy and hard. Roast potatoes not crispy, appeared like it had been sitting around even though it took ages to come. Puddings nice but nothing exceptional. Manageress very apologetic and took £10 per head off but bill still came to £179 with drinks. Felt robbed,I don’t mind paying for a nice meal but this was awful

    We were very pleased with the evening, our first visit, food was good and timing between course perfect, service and staff were excellent could not fault them all. My only complaint was we were sitting in a straight line from the front door to the patio door to outside diners, the draft of cold air was unpleasant, and not the Highfields fault dinners didn't close the door on entry so it remained open for 5-10 mins at a time.

    Have avoided The Highfield after a shockingly bad experience with rude customer service some 5-6 years ago but having seen what appears to be an overhaul of the place (and most importantly staff) I thought it would be perfect to take my partner for a celebratory roast to celebrate her landing a new job... I was wrong. The service admittedly was better then last time although that wouldn’t have been hard, nothing to personably but it was a busy Sunday service so I wasn’t expecting the world. What I was expecting however was a toast worth the money we are paying. That was something we certainly did not get! Cold yet overcooked roast potatoes, the chicken special was so bland and soggy with absolutely no flavour despite the stuffing. In fact, although the food looked appealing, the finished product does not put it anywhere near some of the city’s ‘go to’ Sunday roast venues. We were both so disappointed with our roast dinners that we couldn’t bare to spend any more money by having the desert we wanted here and decided to go to The Physician just up the road. Better service, AMAZING desert and by the looks of what we saw coming out, better roasts too. I will not be returning to the Highfield in a hurry and will actively advise friends to do the same

    Meeting up with friends for a Saturday brunch The highfield is my go to restaurant has been for a long time. But my pet hate with all things breakfast and brunch is a hard egg especially when you order poached. There is nothing quite like a poached egg especially on eggs Benedict or smashed avocado it just makes the dish. On our last visit yesterday 2 full breakfast and 2 smashed avocado 8 eggs all hard and it’s so very disappointing.

    I dislike leaving bad reviews, but unfortunately I’m going to have to on this occasion. On arriving we had to be reseated twice due to wobbly tables (really don’t like eating on a table that’s unstable). For starters I had scollops that were over cooked, didn’t really mention this as this is easily done. For my main I had fillet medallions. To my surprise we were served frozen cooked chips, which were slightly undercooked. The steak was fatty, one of the reasons I order a fillet steak is because of the fact it should have less fat. Now I don’t mind being served pre frozen chips in a restaurant, if I’m paying a price that matches, but when you are paying £27 you expect a little more effort and quality. The waitress asked me if everything was ok, I did explain what was wrong, and she did ask if she could put it right, but I told her you will only be bringing me the same frozen chips and steak so not to bother. She agreed, so at the end I asked for a discount just on the meal, this was applied. So all in all not a very good dinning experience.

    It took a long time to get served after being seated. We eventually had to go and ask for menus and someone to take a drinks order after a fair while. The service was generally slow and we were then asked for the table back as we were finishing dessert. Would have not been an issue if the provision of menus and taking our order had been done in a reasonable timescale at the start of our booking. That said once it got going the young lady who did the majority of our service was a delight and the food was great as always.
