Dating back to the 12th century, Weavers restaurant is steeped in history and in 1595 was sold to a local butcher as a retail shop, and for the following 300 years has changed many times, to include a silversmith, grocer, and collar maker. Then in 1974 permission for change of use to a restaurant was granted.

For the last 30 years Weavers has been in the safe hands of owner William Bavin, who over time has completely renovated & refurbished the restaurant, and within a few years he also converted the upstairs, allowing 70 covers to be served.

Accompanied by my son Felix, the moment we entered we both felt completely at home. The stylish decor, cosy alcove banquette seating, and subtle lighting warmed us on a cold autumn evening. Katrina, William’s wife showed us to our elegant table, with a pretty window overlooking the market hill.

Sipping one of our favourite tipples, a very pleasing Sancerre we perused the two option menu. Either 2 courses menu prix fixe at a very reasonable £21.95, or a 3 course for only £24.95. As we both had hungry tums, we elected to go through the card!
