“Beer, Balls and Milkshakes.”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

This is the most relaxing bar I've ever had the pleasure of visiting... This is the kind of bar where if you don't like the background music all you need to do is hand over your MP3 player and chill to your own tunes.

Pull up a stool, sit at the bar and wile away a few hours with Dimitri and Veronika. The beer is good and not over priced, I'd certainly recommend the draught - if you're there in the cocktail Happy Hour then try an alcoholic milkshake... they're the best. If you're not there for Happy Hour ... then tell Dimitri his watch is wrong and I'm sure he'll change it for you.

The menu is quite simple, the food is FRESH and the Meatballs are amazing - we went back for seconds - try them.

The tranquil view, good food, cold (nice) beer, relaxing music and great hosts make Redskins a place to visit.

We'll certainly be back :)

“try the meatballs!”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

my last review for Redskins was written when John and Sue were in charge - due to family circumstances they have been away for two seasons now and Dimitri and Veronika are now 'mine host'. Sure you might miss John's ice cream but Dimitri's meatballs are amazing! And he will happily serve them with chips too.
Pleasant company, good food, cold drinks and - NO TELESCREEN!!

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

Redskins is no longer the place it used to be. We visited in September after a long walk and looking forward to having lunch, only to be told the chef was not there and we could only have drinks. Not to be put off, we tried again later in the week, only to find this time it wasn't even open. When John and Sue were there, the food was delicious and the ice cream was to die for. I hope they will be back soon, because at the moment it's not worth visiting.
