I've eaten here loads, sometimes with my hubby and sometimes with friends or family . Its always excellent. The steaks are gorgeous and the salad with dressing is yummy too. Sunday lunch is great and my friend loves the mixed grill and the belly pork!

Can't praise this place enough. Plenty parking places. We were a party of 15 including 7 children ages ranging from 5 to 16. From start to finish the whole experience was so enjoyable, including delicious food( roast beef to die for)and brilliant service. Would definately recommend this place and "we will be back"!!!

We have been a few times as a couple and with friends. This time we went in a party of 22 and the whole afternoon was superb. We were in the back room away from other people, there were 7 kids so it got a bit noisy. The food as always was very good, along with the service. We will... More

Fantastic food and service as always. Met a friend for an early dinner and was made most welcome. Gluten free and Vegetarian menu available and both prepared separate from other foods. Monthly visit coming up again soon. A big thank you to chef and staff.

I am vegetarian and also have a nightshade intolerance which isn't too bad except for my reaction to potato. Awkward for eating out! I keep pointing out to people that a lot of eating out is to do with the company you're in....that and not getting poisoned by potato! The staff at the General Elliot have gone out of their... More
