About The Drill Inn Buntwood
Family friendly country pub, with fresh food offer and quality wines and spirits on offer. Also regular entertainment and wide beer garden area with farm.
Good, pleasant service and we felt comfortable in these strange times! Thank you.
Lovely food, excellent service, friendly staff but a bit over priced for pub food
The whole experience was good. The work that has been done here is amazing. Food exceptional service great. Well done.
Lovely meal friendly, helpful staff will definately returning.
Recently visited the Drill with my husband. Service was great and the food was excellent and really good value. My only criticism is that I’m not sure social distancing has been properly applied and tables felt a bit too close together.
Visited on 3rd August with family, food was lovely, social distancing adhered to by staff and customers alike. We will be returning x
Despite booking a table it was confusing where we could actually sit and eat. We had to search for a member of staff and were not greeted upon arrival. We observed and were concerned in particular about the outside patio area. There was a distinct lack of basic hygiene from several staff members.It was extremely busy outside and no social distancing measures being enforced by staff team. Despite the good weather this made us feel very uncomfortable sadly. Staff surely need to wear masks or visors when serving. At the main bar there was no perspex screen of any kind. Overall, disappointing as it's clear that the new look is nice and welcome but more stringent measures must be in place as clearly other local established are doing.
Lovely evening with good food, drinks, and service.
Our first visit to the Drill Inn for many years and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Our fillet steak and lamb shanks were perfectly cooked, the dishes were well presented and the chips were just right (always a good sign). The dining room was comfortable with plenty of space and looked recently refurbished. Service was great throughout - friendly, helpful and very welcoming. We'll be returning soon.
Lovely lunch in a friendly atmosphere.
Absolutely beautiful food. Brilliant service kids meal were huge and brilliant value for money.
fab food, steak and ale pie was to die for. Friendly welcome, love the renovations and discount on the food was appreciated. Will be back, thank you.
Steak dinner was amazing, batter on the onion rings and cherry vine tomatoes were to die for 😋 lovely meal
First time eating at the Drill. Food was excellent. Will definitely eat there again.
Our go to restaurant for outstanding food and service... Never had a bad meal after many visits have booked again already twice for the near future
Lovey Sunday and a fantastic outside area for social distancing drink
We went on a Friday evening at 7pm no gammon, no chicken and mushroom pie so I was limited then as no other chicken dish apart from a burger which I had. I did ask for a pizza as the table next to me had one but then was told that I couldn’t have one of those either as they couldn’t handle how many were going out. My moms mash was watery with the steak and kidney pie it was actually disgusting. I love the drill I’ve always been for years but Friday the food was not worth the money at all. I think the outside area is great and I will be going to the outside area with the kids and to have pizza outside but I would not book a table for inside food again
Service was excellent, the atmosphere was brilliant both inside and outside, we will be going again
Great meals. Very good value. We all cleared our plates. Good service. Atmosphere good under current circumstances.
As always excellent food & hospitality
Lovely food and best pint of pale ale I’ve ever had, service was 1st class. First time ever in won’t be my last Thanks again
Visited on the first Sunday after lockdown was lifted and had a great lunch. Lots of safety measures in place and plenty of room outside to relax after our meal
It was really great to be back after all this time!!!! Both the food & service was excellent and social distancing was being adhered to inside the restaurant. The outdoor area looked amazing and it is great place to visit for families with young children. My 4yr old had such a good time she said "can we come back to this pub tomorrow?" :-) My only criticism is quite a few customers were not adhering to social distancing or following the one-way system by the outdoor bar, but I guess everyone was so excited to be back and after a couple of pints had completely forgotten about COVID-19 !!! However we will definitely visit again. Thank you to all the team at The Drill
Hi, I believe we were your first customers to eat inside! :) Food was delicious, service was amazing and it was a lovely touch that the chef came and said hello to us and checked that our food was lovely. We did have a few mistakes with the waiter but we never said anything as he was so lovely and I think he was nervous. I asked for a ginger ale and got a tonic with my gin (but I like tonic) and we were charged for 2 x chips when they were included in the Childrens meal and the wrap according to the menu. We didn’t mind though and still left a tip! Well done guys x
