    On entering the Trout I’m always impressed by the cleanliness of all areas, the staff give a warm welcome show you to your table and take the drinks order. The menu has a wide selection of food and once ordered it’s not long before the well presented food arrives tastes delicious, the cheese cake is like an art form and tastes as good as it looks.

    Menu choice has a great variety to suit all tastes. Everything we ordered was delicious. Requested to sit in the bar as we find it cosy & we had a great table. The lady who served us was knowledgeable about the menu & I ordered on her recommendation & wasn’t disappointed! Definitely recommend
