After hearing many comments we decided to visit to see what all the fuss was about. The first thing to say is if you like McDonalds/Burger King etc this is not the place for you as there is no similarity in the food and you will think it expensive. We arrived without a booking but they managed to accommodate us... More

A delicious mid week meal was enjoyed by all the group and every dish, regardless of personal choice looked delightful. We all chose different meals and were more than happy with our choice. The desserts were fab too........we will return! Service was very good and the staff were polite and attentive. We ate upstairs which was a preference to sitting... More

The food served here is fantastic all meat and vegetables are locally sourced and the presentation is first class. To live in small village like ours and have this restaurant on our doorstep is the best.

We went on a date night but to be honest felt like I was out with a group of strangers. The tables are situated VERY close together and to be honest, considering the prices, the furniture is not the best quality. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was amazing! However, in my view, £30 for a steak... More

We pre-booked via the internet after friends recommended this place. We arrived just as it was opening so we had the place to ourselves for 15 minutes . We chose our wine at the bar and then shown to our table. The restaurant is not too big. It is bright, airy and clean. We chose a bottle of Saint Clair... More

Excellent find, a great blend of good well cooked food, excellent service and Yorkshire hospitality. Duck was perfectly cooked, not too pink/raw. Cheesecake was tasty without being doughy Couple of slight comments, only one type of bread in the artisan breads and we just managed to escape in time before the hen party got up to steam

Tuesday evening dinner with friends was excellent. Nice selections on menu of "proper food" all freshly cooked and nicely presented. The venison was superb. Really tender (cooked perfectly pink) and juicy it was as good as any I have had in Scotland. Between us we had fish, salmon, steak and chicken and all was pronounced really nice. Sensible wine list... More

Knew this restaurant had a good reputation so booked for five of us. Had visited about 10 years ago. We were told we had a good table as my sister rang to check. It was a Friday night so very busy. However I was surprised just how many people they squeeze into this place. Our table was two small square... More

Hi David

We are also fans of Erics but the seating for us has also been an issue and spoilt our overall dining experience so much so that we haven't returned since August 2014.

The table you were seated at was actually the same as we allocated on our last visit and we mentioned in our previous review of Erics that this was badly located and also unsafe. We received a somewhat petulant response from Eric two months later only saying quote " That I might like to know that this table had been removed!" which we thought was rather a childish response and certainly very unprofessional. There was no reference at all to our disappointment and was sent as a private response so other readers of the reviews didn't have sight of it. In fact most criticism that Erics receives is usually responded by the same tantrum type reply rather than actually accepting the constructive criticism and dealing with it in a grown up and professional manner.

We are not surprised that you didn't bring your disappointment to the attention of staff because we are sure that their response and subsequent action would have been very positive but we would have been concerned that this would have been followed up by a tirade of anger from Eric. Without doubt the food here is good, the venue is lovely but it will take a lot to make us change our opinion that the customer is really that important to Eric, he is too far up his ivory tower to accept that others (and his customers at that), might have a correct and differing opinion to his.
