    This was our first visit to The Clockhouse and it went very well. Drinks before dinner were unexpectedly in the very attractive garden and the restaurant itself is very comfortable and welcoming. We had selected the 7 course tasting menu and each of the courses was excellent quality. Some staff members were a little unapproachable but overall a great first experience

    This was our first visit to this restaurant and it was for a birthday celebration. Pros- nice dining room and lovely back garden for pre dinner drinks. Staff very nice and helpful when two guests were very late rescheduling our table time. Cons- small menu and little information to help choose courses meaning that we had to interrogate the waiter about everything. Especially difficult for us as some guests could not eat certain food. They do not have allergies but they do not eat some ingredients. Very small portions, back to Nouvelle Cuisine. Lots of amuse bouche between courses. Food was very pretty and tasted good, we thought that the starters and desserts were better than the main courses. It was an expensive meal as there were five in our party which was fine for a birthday celebration and if this kind of meal is your type of thing. If you are looking for an upmarket experience this is for you but if you are looking for good food simply cooked with a reasonable sized portion you would be better elsewhere.

    We love the Clock House and are so glad we have such a top class restaurant in our vicinity. The garden, food, staff and dining room all make for a wonderful evening.

    The service was excellent and the food was very good. The starter - eel - was followed by pollack for the main course which was slightly odd but there was another non fish option for the starter I could have had.

    Lovely to have a pre-dinner drink on the patio in the beautiful walled garden. 7 course vegetarian tasting menu was perfect - flavours were incredible. Best dishes were the pre-meal snacks (mushroom paste) and the two deserts; although every course was great.

    We couldn’t fault it. The service and food were outstanding. It’s the only restaurant that’s given my daughter her own menu excluding the ingredients she doesn’t like. Amazing. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and it was a bonus that we could have the coffee in the pretty garden.
