Not a very large menu, but the ood is excellent and freshly freshly cooked, well worth the wait and large portions. The service was very good and friendly.

We visited not long after the refurbishment, and found that the prices had risen, not as much choice on the menu, and the vegetarian choices had dropped from a separate menu, to three or four choices on the main menu. We recon that we paid about 20% more on our bill, and all of us thought that the food wasn't... More

We went to Longfellows with 2 others couples after receiving a recommendation from friends of friends. The welcome was friendly even though We did feel like we were entering into someone's house. We were shown to our table through very tight walkway gaps, trying not to disturb other diners was somewhat difficult. Our table was more than ample in size... More

We were greeted by a number of staff, however the owner clearly was not happy about this, and made it clear to the staff, which to be honest we found a... More
