We came here last year whilst on holiday and thought we would return again as the food was delicious! It is a lovely place to come and eat and the ease of booking a table online takes the hassle out of hoping there will be a table available when you arrive. The staff are friendly and offer fantastic customer service. The food was was well presented and plentiful! I would suggest not having a big lunch before coming here for an evening meal!

Recommended by a friend for good value for the money. We booked a table for Sunday lunch and made our way to Tricky's. The serving staff are young and full of energy and very well mannered and efficient. When our meal came it was a proper beef sunday lunch, served with an enormous yorkshire pudding and a sauce bowl of gravy. It was really tasty. Dessert was a slice of cake which came with cornish cream and ice cream. We shared it and struggled, that's how generous the portion size was. Just as an aside, it was full of locals, enjoying their time together.

Booked table online & all reserved for us on arriving, starter choice could be expanded & a bit pricey. Main meals were tasty & plentifull, good service, no room for sweets. Good honest food which is all most people want with reasonable costs.

I have been to Trickys before and enjoyed the baguettes on this occasion I ordered Thai green veg curry it was just a mix of over cooked veg that looked like the left overs from Sunday lunch with some strong curry powder not good at all

As I’m on crutches with a bad back as well I find the seating very uncomfortable and I have to use one of the scatter cushions.Also the latte was cold and coffee very strong.

Excellent value for money. Only thing that spoilt it was the noise of the band and that they were tuning the instruments while we ate. Would come back but avoid Nights when there are bands.

Booked a table for a leaving lunch for work colleague so quite tight for time.
The staff were exceptional as we also had a few dietary requirements, nothing was too much trouble they spoke to the chief regarding our meals and gave choices for the dietary requirements.
Pre-ordered lunch as we were in our lunch break, welcomed and shown to our table and asked if we were ready for our lunch and served almost immediately.
Lunch was perfect and enjoyed by all.
Thank You.

4th or 5th time I've eaten here. Probably worst visit.

Food seemed more greasy than normal, but the service was very slack.

Pepper pot was on the table with no stopper on it and empty, when i asked for pepper and showed the waitress the bottom of the pot, she looked at me as if id done something or was winding her up....

Had to ask for cutlery for one of our diners. And we had to request the dessert menu 3 times because she 'kept forgetting'

Not the best visit as I say but I'm sure I'll be back at some point.

Nice table location for 6 of us, good food for all of us especally the burgers they were huge . Curry was freshly cooked & went down well, nice steak with all the trimmings good size portions. Sweets were good & all throughly enjoyed the evening. Would recommend who want a good meal with plenty of choices & a pleasant location.

Service was good but unfortunately the food on this occasion was not so good. having had the fish and chips previously and enjoyed them two of us chose them again, but sadly there was more batter than fish and what there was of fish was very over cooked, it was incredibly chewy.
We also found the restaurant very cold to the point we were thinking of putting our coats on.

3 of our party of 4 had gammon, chips etc ..... The Gammon was not as good as last time, very thin, Onion rings were huge as always, chips not very good....remembered them being a lot bigger and tastier last visit. The Beef Lasagne was good as usual but not as hot as it could have been, too much side salad and coleslaw. When ordering a pudding.... one of our party tried to order a dessert...unavailable......tried another....unavailable.....third choice was awful.....Toffee sponge with custard. The custard came out in a small jug (which was fine) BUT the bowl was already filled with a sauce, which I assume was toffee sauce...there was nowhere to put the custard without overflowing the dish. All in all, for a birthday celebration date, we wish we had gone somewhere else. Not up to your usual standard Tricky's... will be a while before we come again.

when we arrived it looked very busy as it was during the Christmas holiday, we were shown to our table and the order was taken quickly but we had to wait 45mins for our food but when it came it was hot and delicious probably the best fish and chips I've had in a long time. Going back soon for some more.

We went for a family roast dinner (which I had had only a week before) but we were very disappointed with our meal. The meat that was served was very fatty and of poor quality. It seemed that the food had been prepared hours before and microwaved. The week before the food was excellent so it was a shame that this had happened. I wouldn’t recommend this venue for food again.

Picked trickys for a long weekend break for my partner's birthday. Really happy with the hotel itself and the food. A bit out of the way. We went straight by it to begin with, but it was lovely. Room was great as it had a king size bed and lovely walk-in shower. Would definitely recommend it to our friends and will book again. Well done. 10 out of 10.
