From start to finish it was amazing. Friendly welcome, roaring fire, attentive staff and the best roast we all said we've ever had outside of home. 8 of us for a family meal, we were spoiled. We had the Cote De Boeuf which was to die for. Well done guys, keep it up and thank you for a great experience.... More

My husband & I visited the Bladebone for a Valentines Day lunch. We enjoyed a superb 3 courses and couldn't fault a thing. The decor is spot on...you can dine in the bladebone wearing casuals, cycling gear or a suit and you'll fit in. The menu has something for everyone. For starters I enjoyed cheesy scones while my husband scoffed... More

Popped in between Christmas & New Year for drinks with friends but couldn't help looking at the dessert menu ... so many gorgeous options to chose from. I settled with the New York cheesecake which is surprising as I am not normally fussed by cheesecake but this was to die for! The other desserts at the table were equally appealing,... More

We have been using the Bladebone now since the day it reopened. They have hosted our sons 1st birthday party with fantastic finger food we could never have replicated, a great atmosphere and such attentive staff. The use of the conservatory gave us a feeling of privacy and security for our wobbling and toddling guests! We also visit for the... More

We had our first meal here since it has been reopened. The quality of the food was very good as was the service we received. If I had to be a little critical, I would say that portions could be a little more generous, but I could not fault the quality and taste of the food!

The menu is amazing, so hard to choose between all of the lovely dishes but for my main I thoroughly enjoyed the oink oink and my husband... More
