Gorgeous food and brilliant staff. And would like to add that even after dealing with very difficult customers sat on table next to us the waitresses remained professional at all times and was a credit to the business

We were disappointed that the Christmas menu that says its being served until 16th January was unavailable. Plus if I wish to make a tip that is my choice but having it presented on the bill has certainly put us off coming again especially when we waited for a considerable time for our main course.

On arrival we were shown to table closest to bar on restaurant side, no one else in restaurant. I asked to move to table away from bar, kitchen door and side entrance, I was bluntly told no. We enjoyed our meal food was good, children all catered for, however we got to listen to the squeaky kitchen door and had to cope with draft from side entrance, only one other couple dined in the restaurant whilst we were there, so we could have moved! Disappointed by service, food good although menu never seams to change!

Service would have scored higher however we had to ask if we could order our food and drinks so kinda felt that we were forgotten about.

We visited the Loopy Shrew the weekend before and had breakfast and was really pleased, service and food was excellent, which is what prompted me to rebook again for Xmas eve. However on this occasion it was completed the opposite the food was extremely poor, I ordered exactly the same ( Bacon and sausage sandwich) the week prior it came on thick white bloomer bread the bacon and sausage were hot and not greasy, this time it came on budget white bread (not what is stated on the menu)| the bacon and sausage were luke warm and extremely greasy and fatty, My partner order the scrambled eggs on granary, again this came on budget brown bread, we were not asked during our meal if everything was ok otherwise I would have said something, when paying the bill I mentioned my disappointment, and was told "it’s no excuse but because they are so busy they are not really focusing on the breakfast menu"!! I was pretty speechless at this point. If breakfast wasn’t your focus then you shouldn’t offer it.

We had an early dinner on Christmas Eve. Excellent food and service. Great atmosphere. Tables are widely spaced and active, but discrete, management of COVID regulations. I would go back tomorrow as we felt very safe.

Staff were lovely, food very good. Staff did move us as wouldn’t want to sit on a high table all evening. I did tell the manager he needed to wd40 o. His kitchen door. All evening all we could hear was a squeaking door as staff came in and out of the kitchen. Annoying
