We went there for dinner and we were positively impressed of the staff's hospitality and the quality of the food. It's really cosy and prices are reasonable for the experience!

A lovely cosy table by the fire, thank you. I had the black pudding scotch egg starter, very nice and would suggest the casing was just slightly thicker. Uncle had the shredded pork pancake roll for first course and I tried some, it was very nice. I would order this next time if they have it on the menu gain.... More

I am local and went to the witch with my partner for Valentine's dinner. Having eaten there before I was expecting the usual excellent meal but was very disappointed I am afraid. Despite warning in advance I was vegetarian we were served with a fish amuse bouche. To be fair I should've said something was annoyed at the assumption and... More

We have been to The Witch many times - both for drinks and for dinner. Tonight was exceptional. The three course menu had a very tempting selection of choices. The portion sizes were just perfect. well done to the chefs for a fantastic meal and for the staff for the usual friendly, efficient service.

Although The Witch was overflowing with Christmas party-goers, service was relaxed, friendly and efficient. Excellent menu and a good value wine list. We all chose different dishes and were impressed with the excellent cooking and presentation - in fact, every aspect was difficult to fault. Don't be put off by the current exterior clad with scaffolding! The area at the... More

A family meal on a busy night. However that shouldn't affect service, but it clearly did so. There were long periods of waiting, despite having booked a specific time for the meal. Some of the main portions were much smaller than they should be. For example, fish stew was made up of 4 small mussels, 2 prawns, one bite sized... More
