    First visit, We had a lovely time at Annie's the food was excellent, very well presented and just enough time between courses. All the meals were good and hot, cottage pie was really enjoyed by one of the guests,said it was the best one he had had, the ambience in the restaurant was nice, not too loud, I personally loved all the twinkling lights, however it was a little dark in the corner where we sat over near the men's toilets and was unable to read the cocktail menu,! but no problem we had a very nice Irish coffee instead, then came up with the bright idea of sitting in the lounge area. The staff were very helpful and accommodated all our requests and also were very friendly, excellent service.

    A family tea for my daughter in law's birthday, 4 adults, two very lively little girls and a 3 month old baby. We were made very welcome, the girls were well catered for and the afternoon tea was delicious. The cheese and spring onion sandwich was so nice, the cakes, the scones all lovely and as much tea as you could drink. A lovely family time. Thank you

    We booked the venue for five relatives all meeting for lunch. What a wonderful experience we all had. The service was very good indeed, food excellent. Couldn't fault anything. The biggest surprise was the place itself, don't know what we had in mind but it was much better than we expected. Very plush decor, comfortable and cosy. We will definitely return.

    From the moment we stepped into Annie's we felt special. The staff were welcoming and attentive.The food was delicious. Cottage Pie, Lamb hotpot and cheese and onion pie.Gregg went above and beyond by putting balloons on the table for my sister's hen night. The bar area was lovely to chill and have a drink whilst waiting for our meal. Even the toilets had an extra special touch. Annie's was like going back in time, homely food, nostalgic decor, music and special memories.
