Great food and friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. All in all good
Never had a bad food experience, haven't been for ages and asking myself why?
Great service, very friendly with our son. Food was simple but very well prepared and super tasty in sunny beer garden. A lovely Sunday lunch.
Great good, vegan options too, very dog friendly and great service!
The Stonhouse does great steaks and did not fail this time, all diners in my party had steak with fries and Bearnaise Sauce. The wine is reasonably priced and wide-ranging. We enjoyed a Rioja with the steak, perfect to stand up to those robust flavours. I like the atmosphere but it odes get busy and noise levels can rise. If you want intimacy ask for a table away from the bar. If the wetaher had been good we could even have eaten outside.
A busy Friday evening at the Stonhouse, but never over-crowded or rowdy, just a lovely buzz. and despite the place being full, table service was fast and efficient throughout, and predominantly smiley! The starter was a little underwhelming, I tend to think a combo of squid and chorizo is one work making a little bit of a statement about, rather than plonking a few bits on some rocket and serving - it came out very quickly, no prizes for guessing it didn't take much prep. the sea bream, however, was terrific - generous, tasty, perfectly cooked, on a bed of crisy and flavourful veggies. we both chose the same dishes, so sadly not able to comment on any other menu items! there was a small issue when the bill came and my friend had been charged for doubles on her drinks when she had specifically ordered singles, and this was rather grudgingly amended by the waitress. otherwise, a lovely atmosphere, friendly folks lovely food, ideal Friday.
Hi there Having not been to the Stonhouse in years, I was looking forward to going back. We ordered a main and pudding, and the main came out very quickly considering it was a roast, and so wondered if it had been sitting under a hot plate for a while. It was hot and tasty so that didn't bother us too much. We then choose our puddings an waited approx. 40 mins for this to arrive, having to ask the waitress twice where it was. The puddings then arrived, only to find that 2 out of the 3 Blackberry and Apple Crumbles were cold right through. So we sent these back and waited a further 5 mins, by which point those who had the right puddings had finished. I felt the lunch wasn't the best and there was no question that the Stonhouse would take money off for the wait of the puddings, or the incorrect temperature of the puddings. Also the acoustics weren't great sitting in the middle of the room, so not sure if I would go back in a hurry.
I fundamentally like the Stonhouse, it's a nice environment, generally friendly staff. The food is OK but do not expect anything more than that, the wine list has a reasonable selection and doesn't make your wallet sweat too much, although there could be a few more wines at the top end of the list as I personally only had 3 or 4 wines to choose from that I would be happy to drink. Overall I would recommend The Stonhouse it's a good place with the bonus that it's dog friendly!
The Stonhouse is the perfect place to go for so many different reasons... with friends, with your partner, for a drink or for food - the service is always good and the food is magnificent! Love the setting as well, off the beaten track & with a (heated) outside area.
We had a great evening at the Stonhouse. We were a large group and running late for our original reservation time. When we did finally arrive it wasn't an issue at all and we only had to wait a few minutes for a table. The staff were warm and welcoming and super accommodating of ours needs; we had a three month old in our group and the staff were very helpful storing the pram and making sure we had everything we needed. And the food was delicious! Couldn't recommend it more!
