Gin and tonic without garnish, warm wine flight, poor information about the food. Over charged (this was rectified with ease) happy to discuss but very disappointing

Restaurant Response

Hi Nicola, I'm very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with us. I'm sure it's of little consolation but we had some issues which were out of our control on Friday which meant we had to rely on staff who weren't adequately trained to serve more customers than we usually have at one time slot. We'd like to try and make amends, perhaps you could email me directly on [email protected] Best regards Dom

Excellent experience and very friendly service. They may have been less staff than normal (as it was quiet for a Saturday lunchtime) so I wouldn't say it was a completely smooth experience. But still excellent and would still recommend.

Really good food. Tasty and prepared with flair (some unusual dishes on the menu). All beautifully presented. I'd definitely go back.

Newbury is very lucky to have such an excellent restaurant nearby. The staff are very attentive, with a good knowledge of the wine list, and put us at ease. The atmosphere is relaxed. However, there was a fairly considerable wait for the main course to arrive.

Absolutely beautiful food, quirky setting and great service. If the fire had been lit, it would have been perfect!

We had an excellent meal at the Blackbird. All of the food was superb. We also thought the fixed lunch menu was great value. The staff too were very welcoming, friendly and informative. It was very quiet being a Wednesday lunchtime - but that was fine by us. We’ll definitely be back!

Food was excellent and a great varied menu. Definately a lovely place to visit for a special occasion, as it is a little expensive but well worth it.

Food was excellent. Service wasn’t up to standard, welcome was far from warm. Had to chase up waiting staff on everything.

A pub we haven't visited for 15 years so it was a speculative booking but it didn't disappoint. Interesting menu choices but they were all excellent. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Thank you for providing an enjoyable meal.

Delicious food at reasonable price. Crayfish Bisque especially special. Trout fresh and interesting garnish. Worth travelling from Reading

We simply had a wonderful time. My son had his first steak tartare and loved it. All three of us said that without a doubt it was the best Sunday lunch we have ever had, it was AWESOME. Staff were great, striking that perfect balance of attentiveness whilst giving you space to enjoy the meal at your own pace. Great wine list that covered all tastes and budgets. We will be back very soon. I.CANNOT.WAIT.
