We visited the Battleaxes for breakfast on a weekday so we were the only customers in (which felt a bit odd but nothing anyone could have done about that!). The service was excellent, the food was even better! I hugely appreciate that there are genuinely delicious vegan options on the menu, it’s a factor in our decision on where we go for food and the Battleaxes did not disappoint.

We had 4 different main courses, all were excellent. The triple cooked chips were particularly good. The desserts were a good range of choices and we sampled 3 different ones, all were delicious. The service was also excellent, we will defiantly be back soon.

Staff were great and most meals were fine. My belly pork was very overcooked and dried out though. Nowhere outside for the children to play but I see you are developing the back from the planning notice.

We had a lovely meal on Saturday lunch time and the service was very good. The interior décor has much improved.

The food received that we ordered was very good. Unfortunately, one meal was the incorrect order. This was rectified very quickly to our satisfaction by the chap who served us but did take the shine off of the occasion especially as that particular person was celebrating his 82nd birthday. The server should be praised for how well he dealt with the situation; quick to admit the fault and sorted brilliantly. The cola mix was set too low however, in that there was very little flavour at all - having worked in pubs before, that just seemed a bit penny pinching. I always visit The Battleaxes with high expectations and although, overall it was a fair family evening out, I left feeling a bit underwhelmed. Shame.

I've come here 3 times now and each time there has been small issues that just show a lack of details. Overally it's been pretty good but I'm now put off coming back as there is always something 1. I had a creme brulee that was overcooked to the point of being like rubber. 2. The Ploughmans needs butter and maybe a chutney as all the ingredients are dry. 3. It took 3 attempts to get condiments with the roast dinners by which time they were more than 1/2 finished. Overall it's pretty good with a few details letting the whole experience down.

Great food and service, but the Yorkshire puddings are usually a bit cold on a Sunday.

Not much food - left hungry Ordered a scoop each of honeycombe, vanilla and chocolate ice cream. Got one each of vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. A pretty dull choice of ice creams anyway. Took a while to get attention of waitress to order and then to get bill. Asked for salad with dressing on the side. All good came bar that for our party with no explanation from the waitress. Two more food orders came out before she said that they’d put the dressing on and we’re re-doing it. Came back with nuts, seeds and dressing in the side.

Waitress took far too long to take the drinks order so we had to go to the bar ourselves. 3 desserts were ordered. Each came out individually and about 5 minutes apart from each other.

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.
