My wife and I stopped here for lunch after touring the area all morning. It was a cold day with snow flurries and a bitter Northerly wind. The warm welcome and hearty lunch soon made us forget about that. Beer was good from a local brewery (Bounder, which is a light ale) and the Sauvignon Blanc was also good. My... More

My Husband has stayed here a few times when away on business and always come home saying how great it is and how much I would enjoy it. So last night I finally got to find out for myself and was blown away by this high class, beautifully furnished cottage type accommodation (my husband says the bedrooms are furnished to... More

I am a regular traveller throughout the UK and I use this hotel whenever I am in the area, The attention to detail is exceptionally high, the rooms are to a very high standard. The atmosphere is excellent along with the food. I also would say the breakfast is the best as you can ever get. I would recommend this... More

A part of 12 of us booked for a Saturday night, but ended up as a party of 14. The restaurant was very accomodating and we all had an excellent meal. Food was very good. Excellent choice at very resonable prices. Food was served hot and in good time. Staff looked after us very well.

Wow! Love this place! Very impressed with the hospitality & service we received. The decor theme is fabulous with faint medieval music in the back ground. We were totally taken with the ambience and all the added unique touches for e.g small scissors to open the sauce sachets. Service was prompt, much appreciated as I was very hungry, the lady...

What a fabulous place for a birthday meal. We went for lunch on Saturday to celebrate my mother in laws 89th birthday and we were not disappointed. The place was lovely and the food was excellent value for money. We were made to feel welcome by everyone and the owner was very friendly and helpful. My mother in law could... More

We visited here in February for Sunday lunch as a party of approximately 25. I'm aware that a couple of members of the party have reviewed already and left a low rating (largely due to incident that occurred) so felt it important to add a further one with more context, based on my experience and that I believe of a...

25 of our family were staying locally so we booked Sunday lunch at The Knights Table. Everything appeared ok when we arrived but squashed into seating. We had asked for 2 high chairs which were provided but with no room to use them. Hardly sat down when we were expected to order. Food arrived within minutes so not freshly cooked.... More

Knights T, Owner at The Knights Table, responded to this review

I do not understand why you find the need to fabricate so much of your review. Firstly you comment on the quality. Numerous members of your party commented on how good the dinner was. I personally get up at 5.00 on a Sunday to make sure everything is freshly prepared and cooked. You also stated that you were crammed in.... More

The food was average, the building nice. Most of the waitresses were absolutely lovely. However the management seems unaware that women are allowed to breastfeed without discrimination in any establishment without being required to cover up. We were sitting in a booth in a corner surrounded by family whilst I fed my baby. A senior member of staff approached and... More
