Excellent service, good choices of food, excellent quality, a great evening at Fothergills. Not cheap, but quality, perhaps lacking in ambience, but more than made up for with the quality of food and service. Worth a try, we will definitely be returning

We went to Fothergills restaurant and what a fabulous experience! Fine dining at its best! Well done to the management you have got it just right. The food, service and ambience was truly amazing. Can't wait until our next visit there. It's great to have a decent restaurant in Mansfield. I will be recommending Fothergills to family and friends for definate.

After recent reviews our Easter Sunday lunch was rather a let down Arriving earlier was hoping to sit and have a drink but was taken straight through to our table. Ordered drinks then ordered our food. Service was quick and faultless. Prawn cocktail was fine, but only half of a stuffed mushroom is this normal or were they running out ?and a chicken and bacon roulade which my daughter didn't like. Mains ok but nothing special meat and potatoes on plate with the gravy which left a thick horrible ring around edge of plate possibly been in a microwave ? separate bowl of veg but not enough peas to feed three although plenty of carrots and parsnips which nobody liked, having never been and not knowing what to expect thought that was it but as we had all nearly finished our main waitress came with cauliflower cheese clearly been in a microwave as bowl was hot and a bit too late !! Having ordered my own dessert earlier as I was told they only had 2 lemon posset left my husband ordered spotted dick with custard nothing on the menu my daughter liked and wasn't offered any alternative. My posset arrived and was really nice and tasty but I had to stop and wait as still no spotted dick which when it did arrive thick hot skin on custard and very hot bowl microwave again?
Was really looking forward to our meal but left really disappointed was no atmosphere as not many people in will not be returning .

We visited here not long after the restaurant had opened and had a fantastic evening! Food, staff and ambience were all excellent and we will certainly be returning in the near future! Mansfield needs more restaurants like Fothergills!

We visited initially on valentine's night and had an exceptional meal. From the homemade bread to smoked salmon canapes each course was faultless. The service was also very good given that they had only opened the week prior. We have also since visited for Sunday lunch with a large group of us and we couldn't find anything to fault.
