Went here for a 'Girls Catch-up' of myself and two other friends. Nice atmosphere with noise level conducive to easy conversation without either having to lip-read or whisper! Staff were attentive without being intrusive and the menu has an interesting selection for all tastes - one friend is vegetarian, I was trying to abide by 'only fish on Friday' and... More

I came here with my boyfriend for a Saturday night dinner and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The garlic bread was to die for and the duck was perfectly cooked. The dining area was small which felt cosy and kept noise levels down. We'll definitely be visiting again!

Visited a couple of years ago and had a tremendous time with amazing food. The recent visit sadly puts doubt on whether we will return again. Service was somewhat abrupt and then rather slack, plates left for around 20 minutes after finishing main courses. My steak was delicious and that's the reason why it gets a three rating. Hubby didn't... More

Visited Longfellows on a whim (we normally book), and it was simply stunning as usual. The food is always excellent (my other half had the lamb, and he said it was the best lamb he'd eaten in years), and the service was second to none. Christine and Doug are always welcoming and it's always a pleasure. I don't know why... More

You are always welcomed at Longfellows like visiting a friend. The food is always of a high standard with good options on the menu. The prices are good value for the amount of food you have. The restaurant has recently undergone a complete re-decoration so everything is new and the furniture of a high quality. The garden is a little... More

Menu provides a thoughtful mix of options including a choice of specials dishes - food was excellent, as was the service from start to finish. Would not hesitate to book again and try more of what this justifiably well rated restaurant has to offer.

I have driven past this restaurant so many times. Finally we took the plunge. It was really lovely inside, warm and welcoming. There is a lovely bar table and stools inside the entrance for pre drinks. The food was lovely and tasty and the service excellent. Would happily go again. Just one comment. Would love to see nice white tablecloths... More
