We had a lovely meal and were incredibly well looked after. We were very grateful for the arrangement of the tasting menu and would certainly like to visit again!

I dined alone and was made to feel really welcome which is not always the case for a single diner. The tasting menu was a true delight and very well explained by the excellent staff. I hope to come again very soon!

Dined midweek on a cold,frosty january evening. Had a table by the fire and overlooked the cobbled street. Candles on the table and delicious food, service also excellent. cant understand why the place was not full of other diners. We love it here, food very innovative and delicious.

Thank you for making a whole new dish for Katy as vegetarian options. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the meal. The new Mackerel 4 ways (or was it 5?) was a lovely new dish and I'm glad and happy to have been the first to try it. Jonathan Lo

Our party of 5 greatly enjoyed the innovative, tasty and beautifully presented dishes at The Elderflower - enhanced by the warm welcome and excellent service. The ‘gluten free’ member of our party was particularly impressed by the kitchen’s ability to adapt dishes to gluten free.

Always a warm welcome. Excellent service and fine food. The sturgeon was superb with the Christmas pudding soufle also remarkable. Always appreciative that the chef remembered the beetroot allergy and served an alternative condiment to one of the dishes just to be on the safe side. We'll be back, probably for the wife's birthday.

Definitely not your typical British restaurant. Quirky, different cuisine with excellent service.

The service was impeccable and every member of our party was delighted with his or her food. It was especially gratifying to see that the one guest who had special dietary requirements was looked after unerringly and without fuss.

Limited menu at this time of year which was not explained to us in the conversations I had when.confirming the booking. The food was great but you would have been disappointed if you were expecting the fish menu

My wife and I opted for the taster menu which was delicious and full of surprises. The chef even adapted one of the courses to our individual tastes. I would thoroughly recommend The Elderflower as a culinary treat.

We have been looking for somewhere like this for a long time. I know people write reviews about staff, chairs, decor., position etc. but this is all about food. The food was perfect in every way and it was proper food, homemade, the extra mile had been driven in every aspect and I cant fault it. Very recommended and the only comment I can close with, pity its 35 miles away or I would be there once a week without fail.

We arrived ten minutes early for our reservation, there was a storm outside so we needed to get inside and the door was locked so we knocked and were given a frosty reception and were told we could not look at a menu until exactly 6.30! The red wine that we were served was far too cold, not impressed as it wasn’t a cheap bottle at £99. Having said that the rest of the evening was perfect.
