Fabulous breakfast and a cup of tea for £3.95! Asked for crispy bacon and we got just that, replaced sausage with extra bacon and mushroom with another tomato. Black pudding, beans and fried or poached egg with toast. A delightful plate full. Will be back.

Visited this bar for the first time with work colleagues and enjoyed the place. A good buzz, good decor and good choice of drinks including real ales. Overall an enjoyable time. Able to have conversation.

Bah! Food very poor and so expensive. The place looks dirty , staff don't look the cleanest either. Is there a good restaurant in this town? No one greeted us or checked on us so we ate what we had and left. NO ONE really bothered and it was not busy . Where is the management? Won't be back!!

Driving down south we were looking for somewhere to stop for breakfast, and settled on Shambles. It's ideal, just a few minutes off the main road, and exceeded our expectations. Really lovely old rooms, but nicely maintained, and a very good atmosphere. Very helpful and friendly staff, and a fabulous breakfast. We both had a full breakfast, which was very... More

We discovered shambles by chance on Saturday evening. It looked really cosy from the outside and is wonderfully decorated inside with lots of quirky things on the walls. We decided to have a drink in the lively bar area which was great. We then headed up stairs to the gin and cocktail lounge on the second floor. I think we... More

For £7.50 you can not go wrong ,nice and tender steak cooked just the way I like it medium rare to rare. To top it off you get a free sweet. Well worth a visit. Only draw back was when we visited it was a cold night and the place could have done with some more heating.

This establishment purports to be a Gin & Cocktail bar but I suggest that they get some staff who know what they are serving. They had no idea about how Hendricks Gin should be served and a strawberry daiquiri made with raspberries and no sight of a strawberry anywhere!!!! Definitely a place to miss.
