About The Battleaxes
A beautiful country pub with a cosy dining area, pub lounge, and two huge and quirky function rooms. On the 1st floor, 6 luxury B&B guest rooms.
With great, no fuss home cooked food and hand picked real ales, this is the perfect stop off point for all the family.
Yesterday, seven of us enjoyed a fabulous Sunday roast with everything cooked to a very high standard along with excellent service - thank you!
Beautiful food, great service & reasonably priced. We will definitely be visiting again when we’re next in the area. I would walk there for another slice of that triple chocolate cake!!! Brilliant!
First time we have visited for a number of years, and very impressed with our meal & service we received for my Mother-in-laws birthday. Staff were friendly & the food was tasty with good portions. Good to see a different menu from the usual pub fare & my husband commented on the various beers on offer. We shall certainly be back soon!
The roast had a fantastic flavour, however it he potatoe was hard, my husband said they tasted like they had been cooked in old fat, he was also disappointed in the joint of beef, being an X butcher he said it was a cheap cut. Staff were very informative about drinks and great service.
The roast dinner was delicious, the best we’ve had! Really delicious food with lots of flavour and a generous portion too.
Lovely food. Very quiet for a Saturday night .
Excellent first visit. Service was exceptionally good and food very tasty. Salad options would be good and childrens portions quite small but I will definately come back and highly recommend. Thank you.
We had a very disappointing Sunday lunch experience at the Battleaxes. We were told on arrival we would have to wait 30-40 minutes for our food to arrive which was immediately off putting. The waitress suggested we order starters to fill the gap until our roasts came but we had to wait 40 minutes for these! Our mains did not turn up until another 30 minutes after that, at which point our 3 year old was so bored and hungry we had to wolf our food down and get the bill. The food is normally good here but on this day it was clear that it had been rushed - my pork was a bit chewy and vegetables under done. The waitress was very apologetic and took the cost of the drinks and starters off the bill but this did not really compensate for a very disappointing meal. I think they have far too many covers and it’s all about ‘bums on seats’ rather than quality. They never used to open the hall at the back and it was much better. We won’t be going back any time soon.
Always enjoy visiting The Battleaxes, although always find the old school room rather noisy. But the food and drink is always top notch and the service friendly.
Excellent Sunday roast!!!
We have been here before and it has been fine, occasionally slightly slow service but other than that nothing else to fault. However, yesterday we arrived at 12:30 and it was fairly quiet, placed our orders and didn’t see our main arrive until nearly 2:30. This was after having to ask of its whereabouts. When asking why it has taken so long we were merely just met with a “it’s busy”. I would of appreciated that if it was actually busy when our order was put through. We arrived at the same time as 2 other tables and they had finished their deserts and left before our main even arrived. A bit of honesty with your explanation would of been more appreciated here. When we finally received our meal the food wasn’t great and parts of it were missing. Didn’t really get much of an apology about any of this. Overall not the usual battleaxes service that we have had in the past, fairly disappointed.
The restaurant was empty of customers on a Saturday evening and I can understand why . The service was poor when the meal was delivered we were not asked if we required sauces . No one came and asked if the meal was ok which it wasn't I started with a scallop dish which had very few scallops and was tasteless. My wife for a main course had a spicy curry which seemed to have a lack of spices my wife had already asked if it was a spicy curry and was told that ir was. The meal itself was luke warm and tasteless. I had a quite simple gammon which came with two fried eggs which had obviously been kept warm under a heat lamp the chips smelt as though they had been cooked in old fat and the gammon again was flavourless. And on paying our bill we weren't even asked if everything had been ok. won't be visiting again
We have been meaning to try out the Battleaxes for some time, so with the sun shining on a lovely Thursday evening, we thought that this would be an ideal time to check the place out. We were greeting by very friendly, professional and charming staff who made sure that we were well looked after during our meal. There was a good selection of home cooked meals on the menus. I chose the slow cooked lamb which was delicious. My partner had the fish and chips. We didn't leave a scrap. My apple pie and custard was just as you would expect. We left feeling well fed and well looked after.
Thank you for looking after us so well in the Shindig. It's the perfect location for a work networking meeting.
Lovely Sunday lunch
Lovely country pub with great food.
Food was superb. Lamb beautifully tender, dessert lovely.
Lovely place, lovely way to start my birthday celebrations.
A thoroughly lovely Mother’s Day lunch! A thoughtful touch to give all Mums a gift and glass of fizz. Lunch was delicious and the service atmosphere and value for money all great! A warm welcome as we arrived too. Only minor issues with temperature of food and coffee prevent full five stars across the board! Thank you so much to all concerned - particularly Laura who looked after us throughout the lunch! Super!!
Stunning food which was delicious and well presented. Food came out quickly and the service was excellent. The room we were in was lovely and light and not too noisy even though it was busy. We will definitely be back!
Choice of food was good and generous sized portions
Great food - grazing plates were delicious
Great atmosphere, sumptuous food and excellent service. We all had a lovely time. Thank you!
