Breakfast "Called in this morning for breakfast and was not disappointed - bacon, sausage,egg,beans and fried bread to die for and a great mug of coffee good service and excellent quality food will be back soon"

Lunch "After looking in the over priced coffee shops in the centre for lunch we decided to walk down what looked like an alley. So glad we did as we found the back door to this place. From the first off the smell of the log burner was very welcoming and the staff were very friendly helping us with our 18 month old daughter getting us a high chair and moving the buggy for us. The choices on the menu was very good and very well priced. Will differently be eating here every time we go to town"

Dinner: "If you like to try different places, this restaurant is a must!! I've had the pleasure of eating here on several occasions and have always been very pleased with our experience...From a really good quality breakfast to an explosion of flavours in our evening meal it's definitely my favourite place to visit. The food is very fresh & piping hot, with such a welcoming atmosphere. Both large & small groups are catered for with great attention to detail. Keep up the good work guys!"

Something for everyone at hidden gem

"I've often heard places described as hidden gems but with Droitwich’s Spinning Wheel Restaurant and Wine Bar, I think it is quite apt. By day, the eatery is a popular café. By night, the lights are dimmed and it transforms into a welcoming bistro. A mix of the homely and the trendy. It is a place to enjoy tasty, home-made food in a quiet, rustic-like surroundings in the cosy warmth of a log-burning fire. As a town centre café, it has been serving the Droitwich public for years but I wonder how many have ventured along in the evening?

Myself and three friends visited for an evening out recently and, suitably satisfied, intend to go again. The food was excellent value for money – a three-course meal is around £20 per head minus drinks – and we were able to relax and chat without the need to shout over any loud music. The service was also personable, polite and friendly.

All the starters are priced at £4.75 and there is a good selection to choose from. Between us, we went for Warm Bacon and Brie Salad, Tiger Prawns in a light batter with sweet chilli dip, Fish Cakes and Chicken Yakitori Skewers. Well presented, the portions were amply filling. My tiger prawns were delicious and complemented nicely by the chilli dip, which had a bit of a kick to it. I have it on good authority from my fellow diners that the large smoked haddock-filled fish cakes were equally as tasty, as were the chicken skewers, whilst the bacon and brie salad could almost have been a meal on its own.

There is just about something for everyone on the mains menu, with the majority of dishes priced at £9.95 but that increases by a few quid if you fancy the 8oz or 16oz steaks. Home-made steak and kidney pie is a traditional favourite and I was quite happy with my choice. There was plenty of filling in a rich gravy, the vegetables were piping hot and the homemade chips particularly moreish. The Szechuan Chicken with rice and salad, picked by one of our group, was steaming hot, the Lasagne Verde was “delicious” and the Beef Stroganoff sufficiently tender. Again the portions were substantial.

Three of us opted for puddings – Apple and Rhubarb Crumble, Bread and Butter Pudding and Warm Chocolate Fudge Cake. All were priced at £4.25. If truth be told, the fudge cake and bread and butter pudding weren't quite up to the standard of the previous two courses but that would be nit-picking. They were still tasty.

Overall, if you’re looking for a quiet evening out with good food and a bill that won’t break the bank, you can’t go far wrong here. It is relatively small, so I would advise booking in advance. I’m looking forward to my next visit already.
