After being seated we waited 30 minutes after our booking time before someone took our food order. We also had to visit the bar for drinks, whereas i expected table service. The majority of our table had beef which was fatty and off putting so unfortunately not everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the pork which was delicious. I do love thd Blacksmiths but think I prefer to visit on a day other than Sunday when choice is limited to one menu.

Thank you to the Chef and all your staff for making our joint birthday celebrations absolutely fantastic! Everyone on the day praised both the food and the venue. We are already thinking of another event so that we can come back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Service was very polite but we make did have to remind them that we'd like more water (having asked for it already). No big deal but worth mentioning. Quite a small wine list but actually that's OK as one which is too big can make it difficult to decide. Very interesting choices of food and when our daughters wanted to share a starter it was beautifully presented on 2 plates. Well done, we will be back

We eat regularly at The Blacksmiths when we are visiting family close by. We have always been made to feel welcome, the food and service has always been excellent and we have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant. We look forward to our next visit.

Overall it was a five star experience .We understand there were some staffing issues resulting in a delay in service but this was explained and reflected generously in the bill.It did not detract from the occasion and the situation was dealt with with professionalism.

Excellent, always feels special without being too formal but nicely relaxed. Food and service are always great but just restrain from any price increases

May I pass on my thanks to Peter and Mark for excellent service and a very enjoyable meal. Our only regret is that we shall have to wait until later in the month before we will be able to enjoy your hospitality again. Leslie Giller

Brilliant. Wonderful setting, such a beautiful pub/restaurant. Second time here- this time for a birthday and party of 10 of us. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the drinks selection. Steaks were the best we’ve had. They made the birthday feel very special, after I had left a special note on booking, they brought out a selection of cakes and wrote happy birthday in chocolate. They went above and beyond. I would thoroughly recommend to friends and family.

This was our second visit for Sunday Lunch and we took friends who were also impressed. Great atmosphere and superb service - just wish I could remember the young mans name! The beef and vegetables were cooked perfectly and delicious. The roast potatoes were disappointing as they had probably been kept warm for too long. The only downside was the table which was near the kitchen area but as we booked the same day we have no complaints.
