I booked a table for 17 and paid a deposit to secure the booking. When I got there we were given 2 tables rather than 1 - why would I want our party separated? We were told there was no lamb on the menu and then told that there was no pork, but there was lamb. 2 people wanted the vegetarian, but there was only 1 left. 17 people had a really amateur experience with you and I’m really disappointed that I chose the pump house to host our celebrations.

As ever excellent food, had the tasting menu this time, a very inventive combination of foods and flavours. Good value, didn't have the Gin flight to go with it, but can imagine that the delicate aromas and flavours would go with Gin, we stayed on home turf with their excellent wine list.

This was our 4th visit in as many months. Had Sunday lunch. It was very good. My personal preference would be for the beef to be a bit more rare. The carrots were delicious. It wasn’t a problem when we asked for more veg Would definitely recommend.

Think it would help on a sporting match-day to offer a quick/cheaper option on the menu

The front of house manager was great: very accommodating and unflustered when we asked if we could sit downstairs rather than up in the restaurant. She checked on us periodically throughout our three course meal despite the place being very busy. She checked also on a potential booking of a friend of ours on the computer despite being over run with other demands. Very impressed and appreciative of her attention to us. Also: great food served in a timely manner by friendly and efficient staff.

Thank you all so much for a wonderful time yesterday. Everybody had a lovely time and dealing with Kerry in the run up to the day was such a pleasant and stress-free experience. Thank you for a lovely Christmas lunch. The food was delicious and we were all still raving about it today.

We held our company Christmas party at the Pump House this year and it couldn't have gone better. Kerry and the team were friendly, professional and efficient throughout the whole process (which started in February!). Delicious food and drink - all sustainably sourced (something very important to us) - and a fab DJ to dance us into the early hours. Thanks for such a great evening!

Service was friendly and very quick to start with but slowed noticeably as the place got busier, although nowhere near full

We recently had our works Christmas party at the Pump House (for about 85 people) and it was a really fun evening. The staff were amazingly friendly, flexible and accommodating and really added to the night's enjoyment. It was all also really good value for money and the setting was beautifully decorated. Overall a great night and can't recommend highly enough.
