Hosted a party of 14 in the tap room on Saturday night, great food, pour your own pint was a real winner and everyone loved it. Highly recommend it to anyone who likes good beer and delicious food.
Slow service and extremely noisy atmosphere but tasty food
The in-house beer was good and the décor/atmosphere was good. Sadly the food was poor to average and the service was not so great, but I think it was a new waitress so will not mark down too much for that.
Our first visit as we were dropping our daughter off to start Uni. Friends of ours recommended you. What a wonderful, buzzy atmosphere. Friendly, welcoming staff. Delicious food and great music. Loved it. Thank you!
My 4th visit for food and I will be coming back more frequently. I love this place. Great internal decor. Great food. Superb ales. To be honest what else would you want. Thanks for all the hospitality.
Thx for a good meal!
Thank you great service, very friendly. Fantastic catering for such a big party of blokes. Great private room.
Booked a table for 7.15. We arrived at 6.45 and were willing to go to the bar for a drink but when we spoke to the staff member our table was ready. Good and pleasant staff who didn't rush us with anything. Portion sizes very good and plenty of option on the menu.
We checked the menu before making a reservation and were disappointed to find the menu had changed when we got there and hadn't been updated online. The food was nice but we were also disappointed to have ordered the mac and cheese for it to arrive covered in chillis. This was not stated on the menu and it is not something you would ever expect on that side order. Service was good until we wanted the bill and we waited so long we ended up going to the bar to pay. We left a good tip for the server and no thank you received. Not somewhere I would return too.
Thanks for a great Wings Wednesday! Had a fab time. Service was excellent, staff lovely and food amazing. We'll be back. I think my friend wants to have another go at beating her record :)
Fabulous first experience I would recommend this place too anyone x
Nice food, very pleasant waitress, nice atmosphere and lovely surroundings.
Lovely date night, the food was excellent with great value for money. Really attentive staff too and extra quick service but never felt rushed.
Ribs were too tough to eat
Very pleased with my visit. Only thing that let my visit down was the dessert .. I ordered the Mississippi mud pie.. it was nice but the ice cream included - vanilla had freezer burn and there was bits of ice in it. I didnt complaint to the server as my experience was good. I would defo address this as starter and main was great but I did not think Hop n Cleaver dessert menu was lacking. Take care and thank the staff for me
Food was absolutely lovely, great addition to the restaurant week very worth while
The food was nice, but portion was smaller than we had anticipated for the 'crate' described for restaurant week. My dessert (the waffle) came with raspberry sauce instead of bourbon butterscotch with no explanation. The staff (other than the guy who initially seated us) seemed just like they couldn't be bothered and had to be prompted for everything from giving us cutlery to clearing the table to offering us dessert menus. If they were rushed off their feet it would be understandable but they mainly stood next to the bar chatting, Unsure if we will return after this experience.
Service was slightly slow but it was restaurant week so they were busy! Absolutely lush food!
Great service in a fab setting
Tasty good! Food/cocktails/staff all excellent.
