Really good service and friendly staff. Could maybe have some quiet music playing for a little more atmosphere. Outdoor seating now have unbrellas which is a good option for when the weather isn’t as good. Good choice of food, big portions and well priced. Food is good however the wrong order initially came and I was given a chicken wrap when I ordered the vegetarian option however it was quickly resolved. Plenty of space to take a pram. Would definitely recommend.

Had a lovely meal. The staff were friendly, our food was brought out very quickly and the staff returned several times to check everything was ok. Our three small dogs were also welcomed! We will definitely return next week for another meal! Looking forward to seeing inside this time!

I was somewhat disappointed with our first time visit. There werec5 of us and 2 had to sit on small stools, very uncomfortable. Our food took 40mins from ordering to table and dessert order was slow but not as long. I had the pork special as did 3 of us it was served on dry bread slices, pork was dry, very little gravy (ask for more). The quality of the food was very poor. Coffee was very strong and not great taste. I did not want to embarrass anyone by complaining and was not even going to write about it until I recieved survey. After our experience I would not recommend your establishment. Another issue was delivery people and others walking around without masks, yet we were given strick orders before entering to wear masks. I think asking for a deposit during a weekday when only a few tables occupied was not right when other people could just walkin without reservations. Overall very disappointed.

It was brilliant that we got a booking at short notice. We liked where we were sitting even if it did rain. But, although the staff were friendly, they forgot our order... twice. Two different waiting staff. Firstly a main meal, so by the time we were nearly finished our food, my partner was only just receiving his. And then when we ordered more drinks, my partners coffee was forgotten. If it had of been busy, I feel like it could be forgiven but it really wasn’t. Although you’ve got a great little outdoor area, I think the fundamentals need to be reviewed. We probably will be back as we did enjoy the food we had. But I just hope everything goes a bit more smoothly on our next visit.

Beautiful outside terrace, lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and very helpful. We went for Sunday lunch and both the beef and vegetarian were both delicious. We will definitely be returning to enjoy something else off the menu. Well worth a visit and very good value for money. Highly recommend.

I have visited twice now .both fir my 70th Birthday. Once on Sunday 18th for Sunday lunch.I ordered a starter of garlic and chilli prawns for a starter and a small Roast beef dinner. If pthat was the small one then I don't think I could eat the normal size.The beef was succulent and Yorkshire pudding and gravy fab. Fresh veg to accompany were lovely. Incredible value for money. I have visited today Monday 19th (carrying on Birghday Celebrations!) for lunch and it was really lovely menu.Service amazing food as good as yesterday.I had the garlic and chili prawns again but as my main. Delicious. My friends had Chicken skwer and fish finger sandwich both of which were really tasty. I am visiting again on Thursday 22nd at 6pm. Carrying on Birthday...well why not? The ambiance is great and we had a lovely heater keeping us warm and we saw Vera .!!! Whats not to like? I wish this lovely old pub restaurant all the very best in their new venture. Helen Fenwick

Hi Overall we enjoyed being back at a much improved Delaval Arms. Looking forward to coming back especially when COVID rules allow for inside eating and drinking. Our only comment, not a criticism, would be to provide further heating outside. Kind Regards
