Food & service was excellent. we had a lovely young waitress. However, last Saturday was a very cold evening & anytime someone entered or left the Restaurant we where frozen (easily fixed)

Really good as usual. I had the Lasagne for the first time and it was brilliant, generous portion too. The service has come on leaps and bounds and is right up there amongst the best. Their by-line is "honest food and ale" and actually that sums it up well - good ingredients, well cooked, no pretentions to fine dining, just everything done well.

Food was delicious. Our booking was for 8pm on Saturday night. Unfortunately we were not seated until after 8.20pm - we were standing in the middle of the restaurant awkwardly, and asked by several members of staff what we were waiting for, but no-one seemed to take control of the situation. We ordered drinks and meals soon after being seated - unfortunately I had to ask someone at 8.45pm if there was any chance of getting our drinks - service was extremely slow. We got our drinks at 8.50pm - 50 mins after our booking time. Food arrived promptly, and was delicious. Very disappointed with the slow service - understand it was a Saturday night, but there seemed to be lots of staff floating around, and no-one managing the situation - and while there were a number of tables, it wasn't excessively busy. Disappointed that we weren't offered a free drink or discount, given that we had waited close to an hour to get our drinks. Excellent gin & whiskey selection - and can't fault the food - just let down by slow service.

After a rocky start- service wise- the team turned it around and I had an enjoyable night! Lunch and service was superb on Sunday! Well done!

Very pleasant staff, lovely menu, and great atmosphere, enhanced by log burning stove in the corner - very cosy! Food was excellent, and staff were very helpful and courteous, especially during a very busy dinner service for them. Will be back!

Service was really slow. Had to ask for drinks three times, in fact I’m still waiting for my sparkling water! Also mash was cold and had to be sent back. Disappointing really!

Our table would have been tight for 6 people and we had booked for 7, too squashed to be able to enjoy our meal. 3 people had cod, the portions were very small and the food was cold. The other meals were tasty but we won’t be back.

We were a large family group and enjoyed our annual pre Christmas dinner at the Parsons Nose in a convivial atmosphere. The food and service were good except one member of our family received a wrong main course, this was corrected, but unfortunately when it arrived the fish was raw in the centre. The staff were very good about this , however by the time the corrected meal arrived everyone else had finished. To the credit of the management they did not charge for this item. Unfortunately this error did spoil our evening somewhat, nevertheless we would be prepared to visit again The Management perhaps could note that as a large group we offered to prebook our menu to avoid such an issue but this was deemed unnecessary.

All the food was gorgeous, thoroughly enjoyed. Could have done with a smaller portion of the chowder for starter as it meant I couldn’t eat as much of my main as I would have liked to.
