We got a warm welcome on a chilly lunchtime being greeted with a blazing fire. Food was very good with that little tweak which makes it stand out. The service was excellent and the lunchtime menu very good value. The a la carte looked good too. Wine by the glass was very good and the beer well kept.

Visited recently for drinks and then returned and this time ordered a bit of food. It's a great looking place; classic country pub with a log fire, bookcases and lots of lovely wood. Service is very friendly. We ordered the cheese fondue for 2 and it was really just a bit average. The cheese wasn't particularly well flavoured and the... More

We visited here on Saturday. I had booked a table which I think is always recommended as they are busy. We had a gorgeous table by the fire which made us all feel very cozy. The menu is lovely and on this visit they also had the Valentine's Day menu available. As a group we chose from both. We all... More

I loved that the place was so relaxed and dog friendly. Very family orientated too. We had a little girl coming along every now and again from another table to see our dogs, it really makes a difference to the atmosphere which was just lovely! and the staff were all very nice and attentive considering it was busy. The food... More

There's was never a delay in the service and Steve couldn't have been more efficient. We all enjoyed our food and I have to say this little... More

We have been eating at the Goshalk for several years, visiting about 4 times a year, always at lunch time. We went for lunch last Wednesday, after an absence of several months and we were disappointed with our experience. The first thing that struck us was how empty the place was, with 3 or 4 tables occupied, whereas in the... More
