Callenders is a modern , casual style dining bistro. From a romantic meal for two, to a celebration dinner for forty. The best of local produce cooked to order for you.
The surroundings are relaxed and easy going. Large potted plants occupy the free spaces and original water-colours by local artists hang on the walls. Table tops are bare and minimalist set with condiments, cutlery and fresh cut flower stems.
Old dishes make a fresh return, and modern classics like Thai-Style Chicken sit comfortably along-side Braised Beef Cheeks with roast potatoes and gravy.
Steaks are good too and a full Char-grill section on the menu features locally shot Venison and a selection of beef cuts; T bone, Fillet and Sirloin.
As you would expect all desserts and pastries are made in house, with a definite focus on classic British desserts, steamed Treacle Sponge, Crème Brule, Apple Tart, Queen of Puddings and a really beautiful creamed rice dessert served with a mango sorbet are often on the menu.

    Beautiful meal, great service. We were seated at a table and a family came in with screaming kids running around our table and nothing was done about it. Spoilt the experience overall. Food was delicious although mashed potatoes should be fresh not dry and frozen

    Lovely but dated interior. The food was disappointing, the mains were good value but desserts were over priced. I have been twice but wouldn’t go again, there are much better places to eat in the area

    All the food here's home cooked and of excellent quality. The fixed price lunch menu is great value and there is a good range of choices. The specials are also excellent. Service is attentive and friendly.
