Not a local girl serving us but she took great care at writing everything down and cross checking our orders; so everything was correct ;and as the meal went on she kept popping back to ask if everything was OK. The menu is a good starting place because the main courses are available in two sizes. Particularly older folk do... More

Okay, so this place doesn't look much from outside and it's pretty plain inside, but don't be put off by that. The food is all home-cooked and is delicious with generous portions. There are always lovely specials on the board and the desserts are great with lots of choice. Service can be a little variable depending on how many staff... More

I came here with my family the other day and i have to say the orchard will never disappoint! I've been coming here since they opened! They are still the same owners and you can see how well they're doing! They clearly look after their staff as they always seem really happy and welcoming! Agreed! They get very busy, but... More

We have passed this restaurant many times and decided to call in for a late lunch. We should have realised by the empty car park that it may have given a hint. We slowly pushed the door and walked into an empty unwelcoming space. Were we welcomed by the patron? No!.. The only staff member in the restaurant continued to... More

We visited for the first time today, we live close by and have passed this place for a number of years. First of all they were busy but the staff appeared rather untrained. The girl who welcomed us almost looked supprised when we asked for a table. Having just walked in, it was not an unreasonable request. Next the menu... More

Phoned in advance which was just as well because they where booked up until 1.30pm. This was fine as we were not in a rush, so booked for 1.30 plus. Arrived and was immediately greeted by a smiling waitress who showed us straight to our table, (I'm still sitting as I type) and given a menu. I had Steak &... More

Stopped for tea and cake or scones. Service was good and correct. Nice and clean and the pots of tea were fine. However the scones were very poor. Obviously frozen and then probably defrosted in a microwave. Very small portions of jam. Have been before and then had cake which was good. Shame about the scones.

Visited this restaurant twice within one week and were very pleased both times. The staff were very welcoming on both occasions and were happy to talk about the history of the building which was once a railway station. The first time we went it was a Sunday and we chose the Roast Lamb dinner which was generous in size with... More

Have stopped here on a number of previous occasions, this time was afternoon tea for two. Excellent choice of both traditional 'afternoon tea' and some creative variations on a theme. We selected Victoria sponge and toasted tea cake with lashings of butter and jam .... and of course a large pot of tea. Thoroughly enjoyed these choices! We will be... More
