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.

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.

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.

Food was great. Service seemed really disjointed. Took ages to get any service, ended up going up to the bar to order drinks. Seemed to be one lad doing all the tables which slowed down things. Went up to the bar to pay because again was waiting for ages for a bill. Lovely lady served me, gave me the bill, had my money ready and then manager jumped straight on the till to put in his order... left me and the lady waiting very awkwardly. Not great customer service!

My only criticism is that I felt the menu was not very extensive. I had some difficulty in choosing my food & my husband found it even harder, but having said that we did enjoy our choices. I feel it would be nice to have a wider selection.

Was looking forward to coming here, however was not told there was a wedding in the main restaurant. We put in the downstairs bar. It was dull and dreary 😔 There was no atmosphere we were put by an open door, there were no other diners. There was broken glass under the table. The food was lovely it’s just a shame it wasn’t the night I had planned

Food was beautiful and service was a little delayed due to a new system where the kitchen didn’t receive our order. However this didn’t detract from the experience. We will be back.
