My partner and I visited Retford for the charter day in our little classic car, as the closest place we sat inside for a cocktail and coffee the staff was welcoming and talkative and we sat in there for hours (usually get bored after 20minutes) We will be back for a full night of drinks and food in the future
Apart from the tasteful decor, the food and ambience in general are really lovely. The drinks menu is extensive and the choices for starters, mains and desserts are phenomenal- all made fresh to order. I fully recommend a visit
Love it here such friendly staff and great atmosphere the cocktails are amazing
Always had lovely meals here
Absolutely gorgeous food. Beautiful settings inside and out
We had the place to ourselves at 4pm but great atmosphere comes from good company great service and fabulous food!

Just been for drinks The staff was amazing Had a pint which was on the flat side They changed it immediately and could be more apologetic Brought it to our table and ask the rest of the guest if their drinks was ok That’s what I call a first class service Thanks for making it an enjoyable evening
had a lovely lunch lovely tasty food good service and nice dessert also mention a nice mojito
I wanted to leave a review after reading some negatives ones... I’ve been numerous times mainly for drinks but have eaten also. Going for lunch today actually too! I’ve always found the staff polite and helpful, I don’t want checking on every 5 mins as I like to enjoy my food, drinks, company. Maybe these other reviewers do! If u order cocktails they may take a while but I’m happy to wait as I love a good cocktail and they are amazing here, shame I’ll be driving today! I don’t go out often but when I do I always pop in for at least 1 drink as I think this type of place is a refreshing change for this town. Thank you, keep up the good work and cocktails � More...

Went tonight for birthday meal/drinks excellent all round especially Sam so thank you
My wife, some friends and I went there for a meal last night, all had the burgers and they were superb. Delicious and tender, served with a nice salad and the best hand made chips ever. Had a great time and the staff were excellent. The only reason it's not five star is the beer is just too expensive, please consider dropping the price a little as you may be forcing people away from your excellent establishment. More...
This Herbalist enjoyed the wide selection of gins on offer (purely medicinal of course!). See you again soon x

Quality venue. Really nicely done. Looks smart clean and inviting. The Gin menu is excellent. Not to be missed
Top class venue ,warm inviting and with masses of atmosphere .
