Booked at short notice for Sunday evening meal and we were not disappointed. Friendly welcoming atmosphere and good beer. We chose from the Sunday menu, starting with soup followed by roast loin of pork and a vegetable and nut roast, finishing with apple strudel. Excellent! Good ingredients well prepared and served. Visit was crowned by speaking with Chef at the... More

Not able to use my kitchen-so booked the Oliver Twist for Sunday lunch as we've always had good meals there. We chose the mixed platter - which gives a selection of three meats, lamb, beef and pork, with trimmings. All very tasty, the roast potatoes were the nicest we've had there - in the past they've been a bit leathery.... More

We've eaten excellent Sunday lunches here several times, but Christmas Day lunch was extra special. All food was delicious, with a good choice for each course. Staff were very friendly, especially to my 96-yrs old mother - even the menu was "tweaked" for her taste! Food always high quality, beautifully presented, good portions, not rushed as at Christmas only one... More

Just returned from a family early Christmas meal at The Oliver Twist, and as a retired Chef/Hotelier of 50 years, I find it a pleasure to give this charming Inn/restaurant a 5* rating. From the warm, friendly greeting, through the three course Xmas menu to the perfect coffee, it was excellent- the Lamb Crumble (yes!) is a must and other... More

We went on a Sunday evening and I had the Crab Rosti followed by Beef & Bacon Lasagne - first class with excellent flavours and textures. My partner had home-made soup followed by Nut Roast and declared this the best she had tasted for a very long time; a good selection of fresh vegetables properly cooked (not mushed) and well...
