“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Small intimate setting, tucked away from the road, near to some lovely pubs if you fancied a drink afterwards. Booking is a must as it's only open a few nights a week and is always full.

I've had various dishes from here, favourites being fillet steak and venison, the side dishes are a particular love of mine, glazed chantanay carrots and the sweet potato, delicious!!

Highly recommend. Lovely little local restaurant. Pricey but worth it.

“Shame about elements of the service!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Spent the evening with 3 friends at the Snug. It was the first visit for most of us and was mostly an enjoyable evening.
The food and wine was of good quality, not cheap but all our plates were cleared :-) However the service was inconsistent to say the least. We got off to a great start however the wait for the main course did seem quite long and of the 3 waitresses we felt 1 lacked any warmth or friendliness eg we were chastised for 'moving the table' when we were trying to stop it wobbling prior to the food arriving. When we asked for a coffee after our desserts we were told very sharply ' the coffee has been turned off'!!!!! Allegedly the restaurant was open until 12 and this was 11.30 however the other guests had just left so clearly we were not to be given any encouragement to stay!!!!! It didn't feel good and as a consequence we promptly asked for the bill and left very quickly. A disappointing end to our evening - this lady needs to think about how she comes across to paying guests.
