Willing to give the benefit of the doubt..but one person serving the bar and restaurant was really badly organised..(possible short staff issue)...Over 2hours for two courses and then the drinks to accompany the sweets dont arrive..With the exception of two other couples who were already eating we were the only people in the restaurant part (4 adults 2 children) so not overly busy...On the plus side once the food did arrive it was exceptional...

Absolutely fantastic service all round. Booked in for a wake and the team were very helpful and accommodating beforehand. The staff were great on the day and the food/buffet was out of this world. Will always look to book here first for any functions

Attended the Sticky Wicket to celebrate my mum’s birthday. A great venue with excellent service by all staff, who were very attentive. Food was of a high standard and delicious. Wonderful presentation of all dishes. One waiter overheard we were celebrating a birthday and brought a candle for my mum and wished her happy birthday. Kept it discrete which please my mum. I would highly recommend the restaurant due to the relaxed atmosphere and friendly ambience.

The food today was absolutely excellent. Salt and pepper chicken for starter and pate wrapped in Parma ham - absolutely delicious. My partner had the gammon and egg which he said was gorgeous and I had the turkey dinner which had everything you wanted and more. I did struggle to finish the dinner as it was quite a large portion and I’d already had a starter but the food quality was great. Can’t wait to eat here again, much better than your usual pub food.

We've been meaning to try this place for a while now and we were not disappointed. The food and wine were first class with the Creme Brulee and Coconut Rice Pudding to die for. The service by Katrina was second to none and the atmosphere was extremely relaxed. We will be returning here very soon.
