An excellent, tasty evening meal. Really nice that a good selection of vegetables are included in the price and they aren't just peas! We enjoyed the duck breast and venison in blue cheese. Puddings were rather good too. Service was attentive and helpful. Only saw a wine list on the table, so unsure what other drinks were available.

We haven't dined here for about 5 years because it is always so popular, including groups from places like NEC visitors because of its location and high reputation from black pudding starter to special requests like not having blue cheese on the venison but offering an alternative cheese. It also accepts gourmet society card subject to T & C plus... More

On arrival we were warmly greeted and taken to our table. The restaurant is nicely decorated and hosts a fantastic atmosphere. After reading the menu it was difficult to decide what to have! But I opted for the duck and vegetable spring rolls with plum sauce for start and the chicken stuffed with Brie and wrapped in bacon for main.... More

Went here for a 'Girls Catch-up' of myself and two other friends. Nice atmosphere with noise level conducive to easy conversation without either having to lip-read or whisper! Staff were attentive without being intrusive and the menu has an interesting selection for all tastes - one friend is vegetarian, I was trying to abide by 'only fish on Friday' and... More

I came here with my boyfriend for a Saturday night dinner and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The garlic bread was to die for and the duck was perfectly cooked. The dining area was small which felt cosy and kept noise levels down. We'll definitely be visiting again!

Visited a couple of years ago and had a tremendous time with amazing food. The recent visit sadly puts doubt on whether we will return again. Service was somewhat abrupt and then rather slack, plates left for around 20 minutes after finishing main courses. My steak was delicious and that's the reason why it gets a three rating. Hubby didn't... More

Visited Longfellows on a whim (we normally book), and it was simply stunning as usual. The food is always excellent (my other half had the lamb, and he said it was the best lamb he'd eaten in years), and the service was second to none. Christine and Doug are always welcoming and it's always a pleasure. I don't know why... More
