The drink variety was fantastic along with the service we received from all staff. We had lunch after the thatchers tour which was very nice. We then came back for an evening meal which wasn’t worth the amount we paid. I had a rump steak which was not worth £18, good taste but lots of sinue and chips on both plates were quite dry. There was not much of an atmosphere there I must say but they did have board games!

Great atmosphere and fab staff. Overall the food was great and the apple crumble is one of the best we've had! The only things that let the meal down was the carrots were a bit hard and it would have been nice to have a slightly thicker gravy or even a bit extra on the side. Overall we can't wait to go back for another meal!!

Menu is a bit limited. Visited with my 97 year old mother. She struggled to find something on the menu she liked but that said she has very conservative tastes.

Four of us had lunch on Tuesday. The food was excellent and so was the service although the pub was unusually busy as well as the restaurant.

Pros: Great people, very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Cons: Menu is very limited, very little choice. The Gammon dish was pretty bland. Triple cooked chips were only cooked once I suspect as not crispy at all.

Not happy that a table was pre-booked for a birthday party weeks in advance. When we arrived the table was not ready. By the time we were seated 15 minutes later and ready to order we were told only 5 Beef Roast dinners and 5 of us wanted them. When waitress came back were only 3 left so two of us had to have something else. It was over an hour for the mains to come out with a dish of cauliflower cheese to share between 8 which was a joke. One small spoonful each. When desserts were offered 3 of our choices would sold out so we had to have alternatives. By the time they arrived there were only 4 people left at the party due to being disappointed ref dessert choices and the long wait. We had a 40th birthday cake to cut but had to bring it home due to the length of time it has taken and with half the party departed. I can't believe how a restaurant can sell out by 4pm and bookings coming in later and running out if roast dinners and over 60% of their desserts when you know how many bookings you have and allowing for the walk-ins at the bar. Very upset as this was booked for a 40th birthday party for 10 people and we all left disappointed. Cannot fault the taste of the food but bad service and choice availability.

Travelled from Cardiff to visit as have been before and loved the whole experience - a bit dissapointed that there were unfortunately several things on the menu unavailable at just 5pm! However what we did have was outstanding. Thank you

We had a really enjoyable lunch after attending the Thatcher’s factory tour. The food was really filling and value for money - the mussels could have been a main meal. All of the staff were super friendly and helpful.
