My partner booked a surprise overnight stay at The Fairlawns with a meal included at the restaurant & what a lovely surprise it was. Everyone was nicely dressed up to go for dinner which was lovely, the staff were so attentive and lovely from the initial drinks in the bar to the table service in the restsurant. Absolutely faultless. The food was simply amazing, every single course. An amuse bouche of mushroom soup with a hint of coffee. To start - duck liver parfait & pork belly. Mains - the lamb & the cod. Everything on the plate just worked and tasted so delicious. The flavours and textures were just so impressive. And the Desserts... well what a finish... We devoured the lemon tart and the chocolate terrine, both absolutely delicious. I enjoyed every second of this meal & look forward to returning very soon.

My father in law wanted somewhere special for his birthday so we booked the Fairlawns,

We haven't been for a while and were pleasantly surprised with the new reception area and comfy seating in the conservatory,

All staff were polite and highly professional,

The menu was excellent, the amuse bouche was a treat but I'm not going to spoil the surprise, you have to try that for yourself?

I would like to thank everyone at Fairlawns for the attention you gave to my father in law to make his evening special, I think this may be the topic of conversation for quite a while yet..... Thank you x

Wow
This food was absolutely amazing. We recently visited a high end restaurant in Birmingham which was three times the price and I would say this was on par
Excellent presentation, great service from most, food colourful, tasty and just outstanding
I think the set menu price is a so reasonable and can't wait to come back
