Dinner could not have been more delicious or enjoyable. The service was impeccable and so attentive and professional. The food was fabulous—one of the best meals we’ve ever had! Thank you for a lovely evening!

Absolutely love going to The Punchbowl, it’s just a pity we don’t live closer because we would definately be regulars! It’s such a cosy welcoming place & with such high standards, even the simplest of foods seem to have that something extra special to them, you just can’t put your finger on but tastes delicious, which I believe reflects in how busy it is, particularly as it’s a little out of the way, we are happy to travel the distance because we know how good the food is, I would encourage anyone who has never been before to give it a try.... you won’t be disappointed!!

Fantastic atmosphere, lovely staff, great service and fabulous tasting food.. Pricey but as this was our wedding anniversary celebration we decided it was worthwhile to pay the high costs.

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with an outstanding meal, the Stornoway Black pudding starter was one of the best dishes I have ever tasted and the lamb melted in the mouth. My wife had the tomato and fig salad, and sea bass which she enjoyed emmensly, I can highly recommend this restaurant and would visit again at the drop of a hat.

Only one problem - we were on a small table in the corner and were forgotten after making a drink order and had to ask again. Apart from that the food was good and we will visit again.

Amazing wine and roast. Let down by the barmaid leaving me standing at the bar for 15 minutes, waiting to settle my bill. She literally allowed everyone to push in front of me. I wasn’t about to call these people out! But manage the situation better

We booked for a late lunch for my Mum and Dads 60th Wedding Anniversary. The food and service were outstanding, staff very friendly, polite and attentive. Loved it that one member of staff I spoke to was a 'Dementia Friend'.
