Delicious food. Crab starter a tad pricey for portion size. Duck was sublime

Returned after a 2 year gap for our wedding anniversary and found The Blacksmiths just perfect - Really interesting a-la-carte menu and wine options, every dish was truly delicious -As difficult as it is to pick a best-dish, the star for me being the gooseberry parfait; simply divine. Attentive and competent but not overbearing service and the little special element to help celebrate our wedding anniversary was wholly unexpected but topped the whole experience. Recommend!

The food was good. Although I do feel a little pricey. Especially the vegetarian menu. Which was a little unimaginative. Paying around £19 for a main course and then expect to pay extra for veg! At the price you charge food should be outstanding. The waiting staff are very attentive. 1 female member of staff must have reached over us 5 times to pour wine which was a little odd. A bit old fashioned having staff to pour wine. The best part of the meals were dessert. The starter and main a little lacking in flavours. We ate here on valentines, the food was better.

We had our wedding ceremony here followed by a two course meal. The staff went above and beyond to meet our needs. And make our day extremely special. The food was beyond expectional and met and truly exceeded our expectations I would anybody visit and sample this amazing venue for just a lovely meal or a special day. We also used the hotel side Which was also amazing followed by an truely exceptional breakfast. The owners should be proud of themselves and the team they have thank you very much

The young staff are very pleasant and do their jobs very well. The red wine was lovely but the glass of champagne was not great. The soup was nice but I'm sure tastier creamier soups will be on the menu as the food is VERY nice....but PLEASE get GARDEN MINIT NOT MINT SAUCE as COLEMAN'S GARDEN MINT is much more authentic and more like the real thing. We will definitely be making it our regular again.

Beautiful meal and fabulous service. Even though we had to change our reservation numbers several times, staff were nothing but courteous and accomodating. Polite and friendly staff are absolutely essential to the success of a business, and should never be underestimated. Food as usual was beautifully served and absolutely delicous. Decor is lovely any time of the year. This place has consistently delivered on all levels.

The food and service is as good as you will find anywhere. What a meal ! On offer at £200 for night evening meal and B+B. Not a bad price considering the quality of the room and service but with drinks made it just about middle of the road for value. We will return.

Most appreciative of friendly and careful attention to detail on allergies. Few places attempt to go the extra mile to adapt or create a new dish, more usually served a standard plate with exclusions? It is refreshing to be able to both dine safely and enjoy the creativity of freshly prepared balanced meals.

Excellent food lovely surroundings 3rd visit this year and always top-notch. Special mention of the barman working Wednesday night real professional. Loved the steak cooked perfectly. First time in the overnight accommodation and very impressed. The only thing to perhaps consider is providing cold water in the bedrooms for drinking- coffee machine is great though. Will continue to recommend and look forward to our next visit!

Good evening Really pleased you enjoyed the experience. Sorry about the water there should have been fresh bottled water in the fridge in the room. We will make sure next time. Thank you again and hope to see you soon. The Blacksmiths Team
