Food in general good , service appalling as the bar staff seemed to prefer the regulars and serve them first over a party that spent a lot of money , didn't appreciate a youngster looking us up & down , felt like we had been judged before the night started , one positive was our waitress Elizabeth who was amazing...

Called in after a trip to Boundary Mill with friends, not knowing where to eat as we are not familiar with the area and must say we found a gem. Lovely setting and restaurant with open fires and brilliant lunch time deal at £11.50 for main course, drink and either tea or coffee. 3 of the party had crumbed grilled... More

Visited for lunch today, not been for a while but can always expect great food and service. Both starters were outstanding, wild mushroom ravioli with garlic sauce and deep fried Brie with a chilli jam were exceptional. I ordered chicken chermoula for main and Karl ordered sirloin steak. Unfortunately mine came as a chicken pie, a mistake had been made... More

Was a big group and we all arrived seperately so kept ordering drinks and waitress kept having to come back and forth so was already hard work really for staff. Once we all sat down we ordered our food. Waitress repeated back the food order. When our starters arrived, some were wrong, the garlic bread came with cheese when it... More

Food was excellent - loved the devilled crab, salmon and brown shrimp starter and king prawn Thai green curry - yum. Service was very good. Great ambience, lovely decor. Only thing was it seemed to empty by 10pm so felt a bit rushed to finish as we were the last to leave at 11pm. Very strange for a Saturday night... More

Outstanding meal as always, the starters (baby ribs) & (roasted red pepper &a chilli soup) were to die for, the sirloin steak was cooked to perfection and the hake with dauphinois spuds was amazing. With peroni on draught you can't go wrong....

Celebrating our nephews Jack's eighth birthday at the Oyster and Otter - his choice and a great one. Great menu, enjoyed my starter of Devilish crab plus tried my brothers starter - a Korean chicken. Main courses were fantastic also - fish man pies, steaks and pig on a stick (great choice Jack) Staff were very attentive and good fun... More
