Pub was quite empty so lacking in atmosphere, but given the current situation it suited us to have a quiet first drink and we followed it with a few more. We were comfortable, given the social distancing requirements, and that was important to us.

We love your pub and the food is usually good too. I think you did a pretty good job of a difficult situation on Saturday. The service is going to have to get slicker. Customers are going to have to adjust too (the “new norm”) and you will get more efficient very quick but Saturday was pretty slow service. Once the novelty of the pubs being open has warn off you run the risk of customers losing interest. You have an opportunity for your USP to be customer service which will be a compelling edge in today’s market. Your are now trading in tougher than ever times do you need to stand out. Appreciate it’s a balancing act against cost though. Thought I should be as honest as I can. Thanks and Good Luck! 👍

Good range of food, well cooked and well presented. Excellent choice for vegetarians. A welcome change from veg lasagne or macaroni cheese.

One meal was cold. We had to send it back. I had invited friends to come as we always have had a good meal. I felt very embarrassed as we had recommended it to them. It was a disappointing experience

Fantastic ... excellent food and the staff very friendly . One constructive criticism is the attention to detail on removing items from the table, ie empty water bottles and wine bottles and a bit sloppy in between courses .However the staff were young and possibly inexperienced, please do not take this as a negative they did an excellent job and we will definitely book again . The beef was to die for and the nacho starters were awsome ... well done ..

The food and service was very good. There was just a slight issue with the custard. I ordered custard with the crumble instead of ice cream. I saw that the waiter had written this down and/ or acknowledged it but it still came with ice cream. I mentioned it and they did bring some custard instead. On another note we all commented on how little custard there was with each dessert. We asked for some more custard and they did bring one little pot between us. I would recommend giving more custard per person. On the whole the service was great and the 2 waiters and waitress were very attentive. Thanks
