We were shown to our table after choosing our meals from the menu. A lovely quiet corner downstairs. The three course meal was good value and very tasty. Staff are very polite and good attentive service.

Its surroundings are tranquil, would be lovely to sit out in good weather, the restaurant itself is comfortable,homely and well run with pleasant obliging staff. The 3 course meal is enough, without being... More

We were looking for somewhere for lunch after a good walk and pulled in as the car park was full. We asked to sit outside as we had dogs with us and that was fine. We were given 2 menus - one an April lunch special for £6.95 for two courses and one for a weekday lunch menu which we... More

A little while since I have been here.. Main reason is its often fully booked. Caters for the level between Hungry Horse / Good pub food, and independent restaurant.

We have been here numerous times as a family and all like it here. The prices are reasonable and the food is always nice and hearty. They always have different specials on too.

My last review was 1 point more than this, I only attended as we were with company who wanted to visit. The place is clean, and they have proper table cloths.. That is the only good thing I can say. I gave it 1 * this time as we are not allowed to give none. Service was terrible, rushed and... More

Have visited the owls on a few occasions, being invited on a number of birthday/special occasion outings. Although the service has always been fine, the food is somewhat bland. It just seems to lack flavour/seasoning and is at times lukewarm. In particular the salmon was a lovely piece of fish but the sauce was disappointing and the seasoning was non-existent.... More

Good, homemade food is sometimes difficult to find. But good, homemade food at a reasonable price is extremely rare! I've been eating at The Owls for many years, and there has never been a bad meal. Fantastic food, extremely reasonable prices and lovely staff. What more do you want!
