Came here for a club function dinner. If this reflects normal food and drinks, avoid at all costs! Undercooked frozen spring rolls with a cheap chilli sauce that was hot and harsh, pork in a gravy/sauce that was bitter and needed a JCB to move and vegetables and potatoes swimming in oil. A glass of "Sauvignon" that wasn't and was...

We went here for my birthday it was very private a few tables and such lovely service we were met by the owners who spoke so nicely and treated you so well gave you tips on what to eat and not to eat and had a lovely meal. What a lovely experience all way round.

Great welcome from host Kevin, relaxed atmosphere with friendly banter between Kevin and the diners. For a small establishment the menu was varied with plenty of choice, the food was well cooked and the portions were generous. We have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

The restaurant/bar was empty and very quiet when we arrived but we were made to feel very welcome by Kevin. The food was absolutely fantastic, a very good selection of dishes and it was of a very high standard. It looks like the place has been done up recently and is very comfortable. Great hosts, wonderful food, definitely recommend this...

We haven't been to the Ridgeway in many years so my husband decided we would go just the two of us. We thought we'd gone to the wrong place it is so beautiful inside now the decor is stunning but it still feels cosy and welcoming. The food was delicious pipping hot,very tasty,and plenty of it. The bear garden across...

My (now) husband and I were looking for a small wedding venue where we could get married and have about 40 guests that was near to our home - Ridgeways turned out to be exactly the place we wanted. Kevin was fantastic helping us prepare everything as he and wife Carole have had a lot of experience with weddings and...

We turned up early on a weekday evening and found the Ridgeway high quality and relaxed. The owner took care over our order and advised us on sizes of portions for the children. The fish was excellent and I am told, by the rest of the family, that the steak was too. We didn't stay in the hotel so can't...

Decided at short notice to go, with some friends, to The Ridgeway - somewhere I've been meaning to try for a long time. I'm now wondering why I left it so long! We hadn't booked but the larger-than-life landlord soon had us seated, and we were perusing a menu boasting a wide choice of both 'pub favourites' and less usual...
