Visited here around a month ago. The restaurant was lovely its a very homely place, cozy and warm with lots of nice nooks and cranies. The presentation on the food is fantastic, its just such a shame it doesn’t taste it. The soup was incredibly salty although I put it down to the hock in it and looked forward to the main. When the main arrived I was impressed with the presentation however once again it was just raw salt so much so i couldn’t finish, which is a rarity even if the food is terrible. On the way home my other half and I discussed it, as i turned and looked at our three year old (who only ate one bite) and asked what she thought, her reply .......... ROTTEN !

Had a brilliant lunch here last Friday as a birthday treat for my Aunt and cannot fail it on anything. Food was brilliant, surroundings are lovely and staff very pleasant and efficient. This place ticks all the boxes.

was taken to " the blair "as a guest and was blown away immediately the setting is lovely, with spacious grounds, parking for many cars,giving an overall impression of open space! then go inside and be welcomed warmly by the entire staff. not dolly-birds, just nice people to serve you !! THEN comes the food ! We went first time for lunch ( have noww been four times in total ) our host opted for a fillet steak special dish ( looked gorgeous in several layers ) that was one of the expensive dishes without being over the top ! two of had probably the best fish pies i have ever tasted ! ( one of the middle of the road prices) lets say i did not see a single meal going out that failed to look mouth-watering Could go on (as i do ) but suffice it to say this will be one of your best ever meals and you will make THE BLAIR one of your favourite venues ENJOY ! ! !

The only downfall of the Blair is that it’s so good it’s near Impossible to get a table booked

I’ve been to this place many times the service is fantastic! The food well let’s just say FAB! I’ve never had something that I didn’t like. Even the setting of the place and the decor it’s just simply gorgeous.

Love it and I highly recommend this to anyone in the area or visiting JUST remember to book in advance as turning up you’ll 99% be disappointed as it’s mobbed and usually booked out.
