We visited Blacksticks yesterday for Sunday lunch. My wife had the chicken liver parfait and I had the smoked haddock fish cakes to start. Both were very tasty and the portion sizes were ample. My wife wasn't able to finish her parfait, although she did try as it was really good as was the toast and pickle accompaniments. For mains... More

The first thing I have to comment on is that we had tried to book a table (last minute) on at least 2 or 3 previous occasions and been told "sorry we don't have anything available until 10pm". So this time I booked the day before, and the one thing that stood out was that for a supposedly busy Saturday... More

We visited here for breakfast this weekend with friends. I was hungry again about an hour later. Average quality sausages were not browned all over which seems to be the fashion at the moment but makes me think they're not cooked properly. I got a very small pot of tea with no hot water to make a second cup. The... More

Visited with one our sons and daughter in.law and had a lovely evening. The atmosphere was great and we all enjoyed our meals. I had cod, my husband Beef Wellington. The other two had different steak meals but all were really good. Service was superb and friendly. Will definitely be back.

Once again a fantastic meal at Blacksticks. You can always rely on this place. It consistently gives gorgeous food at great value prices on the early bird and it's popularity speaks for itself. Yes it's quite noisy but its always busy so it's to be expected. We sat upstairs where I think is less noisy so maybe ask for a... More

We've been visiting Blacksticks for many years and its a fail safe kind of place, you know you are going to get a good meal, not this time. I love mussels, so opted for them as a starter, they arrived piping hot and cooked for so long that they had shrunk to the size of my fingernail, which I pointed... More
