We are a husband and wife team, working together to run our little bistro style restaurant, dedicated to serving tasty food, and providing good service. We took over "On the Hill" in July 2008, now over a decade later we are delighted with how we have been able to grow, and what we have achieved. Our small team of chef's (with Rowan as head chef/patron) continue to develop new and exciting dishes, so when you return to us there's always something different to try.
The restaurant is housed in a 16th century building, with beautiful dark wood beams, oak floors and intimate lighting throughout, it definitely has the air of a bistro, with artwork by Rowans great-grandfather.
We try to use as much locally sourced and seasonal food as much as possible, priding ourselves on the quality of meat, fish and vegetables we use, it's all cooked on the premises from scratch. At lunch time we offer a set menu that offers a wide choice of starters, main courses and our own desserts to cater to everyones taste. Our a la carte evening menu has a superb selection of meat, vegetarian, fish and gluten free dishes, plus a specials board, and regularly changing the menu so that you will always be spoilt for choice. We have chosen an extensive selection of wine to cater to everyones taste and pocket, and we haven't forgotten about the gin and cocktails too, with a lovely selection to choose from!
We can make any occasion extra special, such as a birthday, anniversary or other celebration by adding decorations to the table to make it a night to be remembered, just let us know your requirements and we'll be happy to assist.
Children are most welcome at lunchtime, we have a couple of highchairs and you are most welcome to bring a booster seat. We do not offer a full children's menu, but can offer smaller portions from our menu for little one’s, or offer them mini fish & chips or mini chicken goujons & chips! In the evenings, we feel is time for adults to relax and enjoy their night out, so with that in mind only children aged 7 and above are permitted.
We have created a relaxing, friendly and warm atmosphere, we love our restaurant and hope this shines through when you visit us!
We look forward to seeing you soon,
Rowan, Imogen and team
