Never visited before and would definitely go again. Only downside is the lack of parking

We had a great Sunday lunch, all tastes catered for. We were a large group but the service was fabulous and we were made to feel very welcome and well looked after.

Very helpful, very friendly staff. Warm environment and nothing was too much trouble. Being a coeliac it's very hard to find a place that caters to your requirements let alone has such amazing food. Would 100% recommend and will definitely be returning!!

Absolutely brilliant! I ordered the brisket and after cooking it, the chef decided it just wasn’t up to standard, so I was told to pick something else free of charge. Amazing service! Lovely atmosphere too; seated right by the fire on a nasty raining evening, really cheered my fiancé up, thank you.

Unfortunately a lot of the main food was not available which was very disappointing. The service was good and what we ate was good but because the choice was limited we feel we did not get the best the Hooden could offer.

5pm on a Sunday reservation. Surprised to arrive to find no meat available from the smokehouse, nor any fillet or porterhouse steak! Food we did have was lovely, but not the food we visited for. Had already ordered drinks so felt obliged to stay. Lad waiting was more than apologetic on the empty menu. Will definitely visit again but would like to sample the smokehouse next time!

Disappointed that the ribs had run out especially as we were going there for the pulled pork ,brisket and beef, and had booked a week in advance. Weren't allowed to substitute the missing ribs for more chicken wings. Service was very good and the atmosphere was good too.

Lovely friendly and attentive staff. Food was great! The only thing my friend and I noticed were the ‘acoustics’ of the pub! It was very loud really... we could hear other people’s conversations but not hear each other so clearly! We thought that maybe it was the lack of furnishings to absorb noise?!

Lovely afternoon in the garden with nice food. Shame about the small playground, which had a number of broken pieces of equipment.

The starters and deserts are over priced. Camonbert to share was tiny, enough for 1 person but £8.95 for a small cheese and 4 slices of bread. Halumi fries were £6 and you only receive 4. £7.95 for a small piece and chocolate cake and single scoop of ice-cream is too much, although nice

I called to see if I could add another person to our table and was able. I was told by a emend if staff due to busyness over the weekend they had a limited menu. When we arrived the menu had got even more limited so in the end we didn’t eat as there wasn’t much left in the menu. We were very disappointed.

Shame the person in charge of stock take was clearly away on holiday. It would have been easier for the waitress to let us know what was still available rather than the long list of foods that weren’t available. No salad - really!!! Was it considered too difficult to visit either the Co-op or Tesco Metro (both within 1 mile) to purchase such items. A Smokehouse without burgers - laughable.

Good outside space for families. Inside seating not good for disabled visitors due to no space around tables. Also should have marked spaces in car park for Blue Badge holders. Need to be more disabled friendly.

I was happy with my meal but the others all complained and didn’t enjoyed their meals. I mainly chose your restaurant for the veggie but my sister was not impressed. I was told the fish was dry from another member. They all hated the chips I had sweet potato which was great as I was my chicken.
