Great atmosphere, good service and a fantastic meal. Thoroughly recommend Good Merchant. Would be great for a function as plenty of room.
great meals - good menu and tasty food - love the choice of beers and ciders - comfortable seating - well set out dining area - have already visited several times and usually bring family and friends too
Really good food. Try the testing plate for the drinks. Well worth a visit.
Excellent meal, service and atmosphere. Always a family favourite. Top notch.
Nice evening with orders taken and delivered in good time. Thanks
Had work drinks and nibbles here. Great service and atmosphere. Thank you
The platter was amazing however the stuffed chicken breast was disappointing as there was very little cream cheese or cranberry, 2 of the steaks were good but the other was very bristly. Will be back to give it a second go and hope the food is all good quality instead of a mixed bag. Great drinks and service.
Great service and food.
absolutely friendly staff, very informative in regards to the menu. will go back😀
We enjoyed a nice meal, however the wait staff came and cleared plates while some people were still eating - this to me is terrible service. All patrons should be finished before plates are cleared. Also, no dessert menu was offered despite the fact that we could see desserts coming out of the kitchen for other tables.
Myself and 3 friends really enjoyed the service, food and atmosphere. The service was amazing as we were well looked after and a smile came with the service every time. The venue was visually appealing and just really homely in an upmarket way. The food was delicious as were the beverages, and very quick service. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much for making us feel welcome.
Excellent meal, service and evening!
Awesome service and a tasty lunch (I liked your Cocktail of the Day too!).
LOVED LOVED the food. My hubby is a farmer and just likes a normal beer. I know you specialise in craft beers.
Fabulous night with Cooper's Run. High 5 for using local.
Food was DELISH! Service was fast, friendly and efficient. Will absolutely be back!!
Friendly service, great food, clean, new setting.
Food was lovely.
We called here as a group for after work gathering. Had a lovely time. Service lovely, food generous and tasty. The restaurant is cosy and warm, with a lovely cheerful fireplace. Serving bar snacks at the moment due to Covid rules, but the bar snack menu has been revised and is more than generous with great options.
Good and quick service. Food was great. Value for money
We were expecting a bit more table service. Had to go to bar 3 times to get extra drinks, tea coffee. We were the only group eating and only 1 other small group drinking. So no one was busy. We thought table service was a requirement at level 2.
Food was amazing. Great service even with the restrictions in place due to Covid. Well done
Great meal and service thank you
It was so lovely to eat out again last night, the place was spotless, safely laid out for us diners and such a lovely welcome. Food and beer first class, cheers guys! keep up the great work!
Great food on the new menu.
