Disappointed with food choices and quality. The Hill Croft used to provide an exciting menu and very tasty food. That’s my first visit in 2 years, was so disappointed! The menu is basic pub grub which can be brilliant if cooked well. But unfortunately it wasn’t. I had fish and chips, chips were still hard fish was soggy and tasteless, didn’t eat half of it. I won’t be back and would not recommend it either

Greeted by a sullen server and grudgingly shown to our seats only to discover the afternoon tea was £2 more than advertised on website. Food choice and quality good but tea arrived 10 mins before lunch and was getting cold.

Took some friends out for lunch, staff friendly and helpful, food very good. Large portions, maybe too large couldn't manage dessert. Haven't been to the hillcroft for some time but everyone in the party would definitely return.

Meal was nice, nothing too startling.
Service was very slow.
Need to update their online menus.
Prices were ever so slightly different....slightly more than the online versions.

It had been a few years since I last ate at the Hillcroft. While the food was lovely, prices on par with what you'd expect to pay, the ambience was flat - covid related perhaps? One of the chairs at our table had a sunken seat and wobbly legs, the whole decor a little tired and dated. Service was okay, served in good time portions good and all hot. We had to as for water for the table, masks meant we and waitress had to repeat ourselves a few times.

Not a great experience, food was ok no where near as good as it had been previously and way over priced for the quality. Service was very poor, apart from one girl all server's were either hard to understand or not interacting with us at all. Won't be back anytime soon
