    This is high quality dining, not cheap eating. The majority of the food is locally sourced and of excellent quality. Each plate was beautifully presented and the combinations of flavours was superb. I would highly recommend eating here, particularly for a special occasion.

    Sunday lunch in a quiet restaurant. Good menu, all local supplied ingredients so everything fresh on the plate. Roast beef and the trimmings for the wife and a piece of grilled hake for me. Both very tasty plates, I particularly liked the spelt gnocchi with mine and the accompanying blueberry beurre blanc. One pudding, clootie dumpling, I managed a taste and it was good. Not the cheapest place in the area but it's one of those, 'you get what you pay for' places, quality ingredients cooked to a very high quality. Deserved to be busier but might just have been a quiet day we were there.

    We stayed overnight at The Station Hotel and ate dinner ad breakfast there. The food is simply outstanding and outstandingly presented. Try the salt aged beef. My freshly made lobster ravioli starter was memorably wonderful. Portions are just about right without being too nouvelle or gluttonous. My only very slight niggle is that the striploin beef and accompaniments were a bit too salty. Overall it would be hard to beat this for quality and value in the area.

    The restaurant has been updated since before lockdown so looking very fresh and modern. We expected the same menu from previous visits but due to a new chef the menu had been revamped for a more upmarket palate. It was a shame there wasn’t more traditional choices. I opted for the red deer and roe deer (£26) and my husband went for the sirloin steak (£28) as he didn’t see anything else that he would like. The prices have certainly jumped from previous menus also. My main dish was lovely albeit very small portions- the loin of red deer was 2 scallop sized portions perfectly cooked, the roe deer pie was tasty and the accompaniments of carrots (2) and parsnip (1)! I had asked for a portion of chips as they did not come with the meal (costing an extra £4.50). My husbands steak was very fatty so asked for it to be returned. A smaller version was a replacement and not cooked as medium rare but more medium. By the time his replacement had arrived, I had already finished my meal. So we did not eat at the same time. We did express our disappointment to the waitress who I would like to express was very professional and courteous. We asked for bill and the steak cost had been removed.
