We ate here on Friday night 6/6/14 and the food is very high quality. We started with a seafood sharing platter which consisted of King prawn and scallop skewers, crevettes, smoked salmon, prawns Marie-rose, lemon zest mayonnaise, wholemeal bread and was delicious. My wife and I both had the same main of Fillet of Yorkshire beef, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, French mustard, brandy, cream and the meat was cooked to perfection. We did not have enough room for a desert so finished with coffees. The restaurant was very busy and the staff coped very well, even giving my wife a clean knife within ten seconds of her dropping it on the floor. All in all a great night we great food.

Sunday lunch, wow superb roast beef, roast potatoes, great Yorkshire puddings and fresh veg all cooked to perfection, piping hot. Great service and great presentation. For sure a great feast, followed by baileys cheese cake, just divine. This is the place to eat in Retford. A great restaurant. Cannot wait to go again. The best loos ever. Well done John T.

A delicious meal from the Farmer's set menu (£15 for 2 courses, £20 for 3). I had a delightfully pink lamb's liver with cep jus which was gamey and melt in the mouth. The assiette of desserts at £8.95 is well worth it as we shared it between 2 of us and our portions were bigger than the singular desserts! Could have done without the starter to be honest as I got 4 pieces of liver as well as my own mash and veg (hard to find now-a-days). Good bottles of wine available for £15 as well as carafes. Rest of the menu looked inviting with mains around the £16 mark.
Toilets slightly confusing as one male member of our party ended up using the ladies!
Slightly forgetful and over-zealous service which brings it down from Excellent but atmosphere, building and space all great. A true gem for Retford as it's sadly lacking in many other choices.

Retford is low on good restaurants so thank goodness for Number 5. We have eaten here on several occasions and each time the food has been excellent. Well cooked, well presented and enhanced by the very good service received. Nothing seems to be too much trouble and most tastes can be accommodated.
