The expresso and mocha were tasty and hot but sadly there was no hot chocolate available. Lovely environment and very helpful and friendly staff. Good selection of soft drinks a variety of local ales. Did not eat but menu looked very appealing.

Booked a lunchtime slot for me and my partner as I had read so many great reviews! There wasn't much choice on the menu (I am gluten intolerant) but the specials did sound nice! I in fact chose the risotto as my main dish (which was a special of tomato and mozzarella risotto) and my partner chose the honey roasted... More

Last month I wrote a scathing review of Martins Pond and my dissatisfaction with a meal for a large group of people I had booked late 2016. I phoned the proprietor (Mel) to inform her and she said it had been an oversight on her part and she had not transferred the booking into 2017 diary.... She offered my husband... More

For clarity all tips and in the case of larger parties the service charge are shared amongst the staff that work that day. This money isn't used to top up their wages it is added on as it should be and generally is across the whole restaurant industry Why Mel made the comment is that you effectively asked for us...

We haven't been to Martin's Pond for a while but once again we were extremely impressed with the food and service. All three courses were very well presented and the taste combinations were perfect. The main course steak was probably the best I have ever had, it tasted great and was so tender without being "bloody". Mel and team, thanks... More

Visited for an early evening drink on Christmas Eve. The atmosphere was very good and everybody is friendly. Nibbles are provided with some bowls of chips. The drinks are very expensive but that is comparing with the prices we would pay up north. A very enjoyable couple of hours for an early start to Christmas.

Had an exceptional meal here. This is the second time my partner and I have eaten at Martin's Pond and on both occasions the food has been delicious. The menu is limited but what is on offer is divine. It is a real shame that more people aren't aware of this place as the restaurant become very quiet post 9... More

Visited on a Saturday night and had a table booked for 7.30. When we arrived the greeting was friendly and shown to a nice table. Martins Pond was nice and busy ( I never feel at ease in a restaurant/[pub that's empty or nearly empty) . We ordered two starters, My partner loved the goats cheese and I had chicken... More
