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.
Made our booking on line, no problem. A search on Google said they were open, so no problem. We were staying at a national Trust property and was looking forward to a nice meal out. We had not bought food for the Saturday. So imagine our utter disgust upon walking down a steep hill to find it shut. Not at all impressed.
Disappointed and frustrated you haven’t updated your online presence. Booked a table for a business meeting and my guest arrived early to tell me you were shut! Embarrassing. Then you send an auto email asking how my experience was. Shame, have used you regularly in the past for lunch meetings but ended up at the George in Backwell.
Very frustrated that although able to book table online, the Battleaxes is in fact still closed!!! Please update your website! We were very disappointed as were looking forward to celebrating a family birthday together and only discovered it was closed when we arrived!
Staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and we'll presented.
Would have been 5* for food and drink but unfortunately the coffee machine broke so we couldn’t have any coffee. Apart from that excellent
Very attentive and helpful staff. Food was delicious and our whole group really enjoyed their meal.
Lovely food and fantastic service. We will be back again.
The food and service were really good
Ordered dinks on arrival and was told they would bring them over. Had to remind them after 20 mins! Table booked for four for 13.30, but order not taken at least 20 minutes later. Once ordered another 20 minutes wait to be served 'pub grub' roast dinner. Food was only warm when arrived. Roast potatoes and parsnips looked anaemic and not as roast veg should be. Only one slice of roast beef, and veg not well presented. All in all very disappointing, would not go again even at half the price of around £14
We had Sunday lunch and all enjoyed our roast dinner, I really appreciated being able to have one scoop of ice cream for pudding instead of being forced to have a whole bowlful!
A really lovely pub. It was our second visit and the staff were very friendly on both occasions. The food is very nice and reasonably placed. We will definitely be visiting again!
Brilliant meal with speedy service and every single member of staff was friendly and helpful. Thank you.
A very enjoyable evening - tasty food, lovely atmosphere, and good food!
Really friendly place. Went through a bad patch a few years ago but has improved hugely
Lack of atmosphere in the back hall like space of the restaurant. Disconnected staff. Overpriced food. Vegetarian main was disappointing especially at £35! Then £20 for a pear. Wont return.
Very friendly staff and excellent quality food.
Having been here a few times over the years when it has been run by different people by far this was the best meal and service received. Nothing was too much trouble when asked. Will be coming again for a roast dinner and will be trying there brunch menu in the future.
We had a lovely Christmas meal at The Battleaxes. Our party of 11 thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and cosy surroundings.
It was christmas meal and the food was very mediocre,a black burnt yorkshire pudding dominated my plate. The choclate log did not resemble a choclate log by any stretchof the imagination. The main course was dry. The roast potatoes were not actually roasted but were soggy white.
Running late, but no pressure to rush to the table, so we enjoyed a drink (cask ale 🍺 & wine 🍷) before our meal. The menu choice was set with no specials board, but the prawn cocktail starter was good. The mains choice was OK, but probably we were expecting a meal above the average, but unfortunately it was not above our expectations for our evening out with standard pub fare, but staff & service, attentive & friendly.
Could of done with more information on the history of the buildings etc
Four of us enjoyed a leisurely late lunch. Our servers were efficient and cheerful. The Pork Tenderloin in mustard sauce with lovely fresh vegetables was the best main dish I've eaten all year. The pudding with ginger toffee sauce was also delightful.
An excellent experience - efficient and friendly staff, and a good well-cooked menu.
