Had an absolutely fantastic time at The Rattle Owl. I can’t fault anything at all. The food and service was spot on. We were a party of 5 and everyone’s food was exceptional. Can’t wait to come back for some more of the tartar.

A fabulous experience. We were very looked after. The food was absolutely delicious and the presentation was beuatiful. More than anything for me was the size of the portions, Just enough to wet your appetite for the next course with the perfect gap between courses. We left feeling nicely full but not bloated. Your Chef is amazing the flavours were completely wonderful. I had the beef YUM. Thank you

The food/wine was, basically excellent with the lemon dessert a standout. However, as I pointed out on the evening I am not overly fussy re reasoning but IMO the chicken was definitely too salty, hence 4/5

Food superb as always, beautifully cooked and presented, interesting flavour combinations. We have been here perhaps four times now and have loved everything we have eaten (and I am fussy). Portion sizes are spot on - not ‘Yorkshire portions’, just sensible plates, albeit I rarely have room for dessert, which is a shame as they sound delicious. The staff are all very professional and friendly, I would say recently they are perhaps a little short staffed, there were a few service glitches when we last ate here, but I would be very reluctant to fault them given the lovely atmosphere, gorgeous food and caring and highly professional staff and management.

Food and wine were outstanding! Atmosphere quite flat, but was fairly early on a Tuesday evening. Prices fairly reasonable considering the quality, but early bird menu ( which we were offered despite booking for 18:30) looks to be excellent value.

Fabulous food and great private dining room. Would have been nice if some background music was in but we soon found a speaker and connected a phone and played our own. The only slight criticism is that being upstairs the service was slightly on the slow side as it was almost like we were forgotten. However the food was brilliant and as we were with good friends the wait didn’t cause a problem and would definitely recommend and come back again. Thank you!

A lovely dining experience: my only complaint is that the beef was just s bit too rare fir our tastes. Everything else was brilliantly.

Lovely staff, felt very welcome. We ate on a special deal which was good value however we thought the main a la Carter menu looked a little expensive.
