Thank you for a wonderful meal and service that really made our evening. It was great to return to where we had our first date over 14 years ago, this time with our youngest. At seven months eating out with her isn’t easy but the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating and she really enjoyed the bits of sausage, mustard mash, terrine and panacotte she was fed off our plates. The food was delicious and the portion sizes just right. A pint of Gem was the perfect tipple to accompany the meal and we can’t fault the service. Food was quickly served, well presented and delivered with a smile. Thank you for having us and hope to see you again soon.

Food we thought was very over priced for the quality. £4 for buttered greens which turned out to be a little bit of cabbage? The service wasn’t great either. Disappointed as previously have had a much better experience.

Absolutely terrible from start to finish We booked a table for Sunday lunch, we arrived and still had to wait for a table. Once seated, we were rushed to order our meal that then took over an hour to arrive. During this time we were not offered any refills on drinks or offered an apology for the delay. Once the food finally arrived, it was terrible. The sausages didn’t appear to be cooked fully, the roast potatoes were rock hard, the Yorkshire puddings burnt. We swiftly asked for the bill, leaving the cash on the table and informing a member of staff. After exiting the building, the waitress chased after us asking if we had paid without bothering to check the table. Terrible food, terrible service and appalled to then be accused of not paying. Would never visit this place again.

Lovely food and restaurant. Had a wonderful evening. Just thought and I’m not complaining but the service was very quick. By the time we’d finished starters the main came out quickly after and so on.

The bread served with the meat platter was dry, the butter was too cold to spread. The starter was disappointing. My main was average, the thick ribs had not been removed from the greens, the gravy was of poor quality with very little taste. The price for very average food was not acceptable.

We were sat on table 1 and it was too hot. Maybe a few fans or air con would’ve made it a lot more comfortable.

The beers are incredibly expensive Food was delicious and a good price. Service was slow and massively disorganised - asked 3 different people for the bill, and then when it came no one sorted out payment. Lots of overlap in staff and slow, asked same Questions by different staff over again, but then 4 staff hanging out by the bar when we needed drinks and again when we wished to pay - doing nothing but having a chat - bit poor service.

We always have a great meal at the Clifton sausage but last night after tasty starters we had a very long wait before the main. The waitress said they were very busy and food wouldn't be too long. We have been at the restaurant when it was heaving and never had to wait that long before. I think the waitress forgot us and I would rather she had admitted that!
