We were lucky with the weather and the six of us had fun. It all worked smoothly and we were ahead of a lot of people arriving

The roast dinner was very tasty, as was the pudding. We both had a glass of rose with the dinner that I ended up leaving because it tasted quite cheap, not what you'd expect with such a nice meal. The table that we were sat at was very sticky, when we asked if someone could wipe it over we were told it's just the varnish on the table. Not a very pleasant place to be sat when the table is so sticky. It felt very dark inside the tent, could perhaps do with some sort of lighting. Overall it was good but if I'm honest, I expected more.

The Sunday lunch was nice - the beef was really not very good at all. I can't fault the people and the service at all. However the drinks are poor - cocktails are just a cup of ice, Prosecco was decanted and flat, Wine was poor - also decanted and not a full bottle and the gin range is poor - Beefeater?! when there are so many good gins to choose from including local ones.

Lovely staff and service but unfortunately the sunday roast was very basic. The soft drinks weren’t great either. I’d return for drinks but not for the food.

Fantastic night out. Great festival feel and feels completely covid safe! Would definitely recommend.

We had a great server, I'm not sure of his name but he was very friendly and made us feel welcome. Despite the fact there weren't any heaters it didn't feel cold at all.

Food was delicious! Starter (hummus plates) arrived at exactly the same time as the main meal. Music was a bit loud so we had to shout across the table - but it still felt great to be out again!

The food was good but the atmosphere wasn’t great maybe I had high expectations but would of been nice to see some decorations or a candle on the table at the very least.

Really nice venue, food was inconsistent (some plates gorgeous, others low quality). Would go again just for drinks, as service was good.

Great atmosphere and service. The food was absolutely delicious, and there was a great choice of drinks. My husband and I had a great evening. Thank you!

Had the vegetable curry firstly it should all be vegan or at least have the option to remove the raita which is not. The sauce was very thin and I dont think serving it with cous cous was good. The naan was very dense and bland. Other vegan option the baji burger was very dense. Need better vegan options. Or at lease dont charge so much for them for that quality.

Food was delicious but ultimately it was a burger and chips, and wine from a box in a wet field for two for circa £100. Service very “fast food” and impersonal (food arrived within 2 mins of ordering; drinks didn’t arrive until after starters). No heaters. Entrance was a marsh and no sawdust laid, so shoes were trashed on entry. I think either the experience needs to be more premium or the prices need to drop in keeping with the experience. As it stands I wouldn’t go again, even though the food was great.

Weclome was warm, service efficient, food middling to poor, bland and limited flavour/seasoning. The host explained that it was too spicy for customers the night before - even if true - the food should not be quite so beige to experience.

Lovely evening with friends! Even though it was wet outside, the tents gave plenty of shelter. Enjoyed the live jazz that was on! Food was good, although not as amazing as we'd hoped. Mostly friendly and quick service. A great evening and imagine that the atmosphere would be even better in the sunshine!

Had a great time at Pipe and Lovers. Food was good. drinks and service were fab. Would definitely go again when we're able to sit at the table a little longer.

Whilst accepting that you can't control the weather, there was a distinct lack of atmosphere in the tent, with limited lighting and sparse decoration or comforts. We had a very wonky and large table. The mud was quite bad. On a summer's night it would have been nicer, but the whole experience was slightly soulless. The service was necessarily distanced but it didn't feel like a cosy night out with a lovely atmosphere at all. Food was really good pub grub, drinks a bit pricier but good wine / gin.

Our first trip out after the relaxing of Covid restrictions was spent on The Downs at Pipe and Lovers. It was a beautiful day and lovely to spend time with friends. The service was very quick and our food order was brought out really quickly. I thought there was going to be more in the way of music/entertainment but it was lovely just to be out. The Covid precautions were taken seriously and we felt very safe. Ordering drinks was via an app which was easy to use and we all had a great time.
