Just spent a great evening at the Witchball! Super friendly service! Seafood pie and one of the best ever pepper Rumpsteaks ever with a couple of pints of Sharp’s Sea Fury. Wow! That will take some beating! Thank you and keep up the excellent work!

In truth we were not expecting great food here.However, my beef carpaccio was as good as I have had anywhere and the pan fried bream that followed was well cooked and perfectly acceptable. The beer is better than the wine list; perhaps with food of...More
