    Staff were really friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Food was delicious (Sunday roast) - maybe a few more veggie options could be considered 😊

    Fantastic hosts and the table was ready and waiting for us on arrival. It was our anniversary and our wonderful hosts had subtly decorated the table with twinkly lights and hearts. Food was simply perfect. The menu choice means anyone even with the fussiest taste would find a fabulous dish. If we could give 10 stars, we would.

    Had a lovely Sunday dinner at the Oliver Twist with family. Easy to book via Open Table we were in and at our table straight away. Starters were good, the whitebait was plentiful and the Camembert and pate starters were very good. For mains two of us had beef and one chicken. The beef was nicely sliced, not too thin with nice roast potatoes and parsnips and tasty gravy all topped off with a giant Yorkshire pudding. Have to say it was all very tasty. Similarly the chicken was well received. Unfortunately we were too full for desserts so can't review those. It's just under £20 per head for two courses so reasonable enough for the quality. Service was good throughout and extremely friendly. Will definitely return.

    The food was absolutely gorgeous! But the service was shocking, didn’t offer deserts, didn’t take plates away and we ended up going to the bar to pay but waited 5 minutes until they stopped chit chatting. Absolute shame because the food is 10 out of 10

    Excellent is how I describe our stay. 4 in the party so 2 rooms. Arrived and had a very friendly welcome. Check in very easy. Rooms were ideal. Very clean and all you need for your stay we’re available tea and coffee makings. We eat in the bar and the food was also very good. 2 of us had steaks and 1 the beef and 1 salmon and all plates were cleared. Breakfast was very good with a good choice. All staff very friendly and helpful would recommend this place to anyone. Excellent.

    We went for a friends birthday. the food was first class and the staff were excellent. because our friend is diabetic they were very kind and got her a sweet that she could eat. We found every thing about the place clean and tidy, there were nice linen tablecloths and serviettes. You could not fault the service, the food, or the staff. We will be going again.

    Terrible customer service, would not recommend at all, was made to feel very un welcome, obviously they feel bad how poor we were tret to say they removed my bad review off trip advisor says it all really. Staff need training in how to treat people, when you visit somewhere you expect good service aswell as food, I can't fault the food, but the service was shocking, wasn't offered more drinks, plates just put down on the table heavy handed, not greeted with a smile I could go on.

    A very nice Country Pub with accommodation. What makes this really lovely is the staff, they are so lovely. The food was lovely to, especially the Malay Chicken Curry, which is the bet curry I've had in a Restaurant. The room very very comfortable, we stayed in the annex located in the car park. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The shower was excellent, really powerful, not like some of the weak showers we have experienced in the past. The only tiny downside were the lack of toiletries. There was just shampoo, soap and a shower gel unit attached to the wall in the shower. For the price of £90.00 per night for B&B, for two of us, I would have liked toiletries (shower cap, conditioner and maybe cotton buds) which is what we receive in other hotels of less a price per night. On the whole we had a lovely stay, for two nights, and would definitley go back again.

    Having been to The Oliver Twist restaurant before, I couldn’t wait to go back again! The food is absolutely outstanding, and so reasonably priced for the quality you receive. The staff are attentive and welcoming, with barely a 5 minute wait between finishing and your plates being cleared, even when the restaurant was full. The drinks are cheap and with a good variety, we were offered a drink upon arrival and this was brought to our table after being seated. The atmosphere is lovely and warm, and everything is impeccably clean and tidy! My partner is a 3 rosette chef and personally asked the chef to come out in order to thank him for such high quality food. Words simply cannot explain how incredible the whole experience of this restaurant was.

    Excellent service, despite it being our waitress Jane's, 1st ever shift, in the restaurant. She was very friendly and my 6 year old grand daughter liked her, as she listened to her and took her order (as if she was an adult).She took trouble to get the dessert for her just right although it was not a real choice on the menu. We had both chosen the Sunday roast and were not disappointed, Very tasty. We will of course visit again.

    Have been here before and the food is always good and staff friendly and efficient. The only disappointment of this visit was that we were seated in bar area rather than the restaurant. We booked Saturday as we know restaurant area is in use then. Perhaps I should have booked by phone rather than online and I could have asked about this.
