    This was my first visit to The Great House. It was a celebratory meal for my birthday - but dining for one.
    The staff are very attentive without being intrusive, with a good atmosphere. The food is good, but not extravagant.
    Food is fashionably under-cooked, so if you like crunching your way through the vegetables you will love this place. For my taste, I would like them just a bit more cooked. I have no problem with "pink" lamb, but needed to ask for a better knife to be able to cope with the crunchy veg and the meat.
    Portion sizes are generous, especially the main course. I had the Sunday 3 course meal which is very modestly priced, and considered that overall it was excellent value for money. The one thing that I did mention at the time, was that the taramasalata style acompaniment to the broccoli was over salty. Other than that the flavour was very good

    My wife and I had our wedding reception at the Great House three years ago and it was a beautiful day and evening. We went this week for our anniversary and the food was the best we have ever had every course was lovely and the desserts were amazing, a truly wonderful and exquisite dining experience thank you to the brilliant chef and the lovely staff for making our night so perfect.

    Great and quick service, clean and fresh restaurant and the food was excellent, particularly the beetroot risotto, belly pork and marmite butter.

    Very friendly staff, the interior has its own individual, comfortable style. Great service and amazing food. This was my second meal and both times were most enjoyable.

    We went for lunch. Had the tempura purple sprouting to start which was disappointing. It was not tender as I would expect it to be, it was more like ordinary broccoli. The main course of Hake was very good, the fish was very fresh. The desert of goats cheese curd, fig & honeycomb was also very good. Overall the value was very good.

    Every course was incredible (scallops to start, steak and pie for main course & crumble for dessert) and the service was exceptional. Would highly recommend and will be returning.

    Initial reception was great. We sat in the bar and ordered wine and had a browse of the menu. Once at our table the waitress at first seemed efficient but as the evening went on it was clear that she was abrupt and not very friendly. We shared an scotch egg as an Amuse Bouche then went on to starters. Food was delicious,I had the duck and smoked yolk starter and pork mains, but the waitress tried to clear plates before we had finished. The same happened with the main course. The restaurant only served nine covers all evening so there was no pressure on the chef or the staff. It just seemed they wanted us to eat and run ,fast food style!! It really did spoil the enjoyment of seriously good food. Great building and lovely furnishings. This is the first time in many years that we haven't left a tip. Very disappointed that the service didn't match the standard of food .
