Visited for a family birthday meal and was not disappointed at all. The food was excellent. Not a great deal of choice on the menu but what was on there was great. The portions were large and quality was good. Service was good and reasonably priced.

Been to this restaurant many times with my family. It is not bad food but is very unimaginative to say the least! They never vary their vegetables so you get swede in particular with everything. Swede is very strange with fish! The veg also tend to be very over cooked. Meat & fish are always cooked well, veg lasagne is... More

Visited the hickory stick with my daughter and her fiancé, from start to finish it was brilliant! The food was beautifully cooked and plenty of it! The service was excellent nothing was to much trouble and everything was done cheerily and with a smile. Hands down one of the best, if not, the best meal I've had. Do not hesitate... More

The service in this restaurant was very attentive and friendly. A wide selection of meals from a set menu, with also a good range of specials. We also went bowling afterwards, and the evening was very good value.

We had Sunday lunch here 14/08/16, it was so good we booked again for Sunday, 21/08/16. Very good menu choice,and they offer an alternative to Sunday lunch for children if required. The food arrives quickly, great food served in a comfortable, clean environment. Super family-friendly staff make it a lovely dining experience for adults and children alike.

Why is this place highly rated? Drinks served in 2 minutes, order taken and food served (freshly prepared) in ten minutes. Friendly, polite staff, nice touches with part diced salad and steak with trimmings (fried onion and mushrooms), great lemon tart & raspberry sorbet (contrasting but complementary flavours). All in the unlikely setting (follow the signs) of a golf range/course... More

I couldn't have taken my family to a better restaurant! The food was excellent, freshly cooked, hot, and served on hot plates. The puddings were yummy! The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Four of us found this little gem when we went for dinner on Saturday. Good menu choice plus additional 'specials' board. We were not dissappointed. Great food, friendly staff, good service and overall excellent value for money.
