Only two comments, the chicken and bacon salad, the chicken was a bit dry. Staff forgot to take off the deposit that had been paid, but it was soon rectified, so not a big deal. We had a great lunch - thank you. You also accommodated 3 extra guests on the day, so well done.

The menu would be perfect if you offered french fries as well as chips and not just the sweet potato option. Thanks Jan

Sadly, our visit to The Raven was utterly disappointing. The quality of service and food was not to past expectations. There seems to be a management problem at this establishment and Emery Inns should be concerned as there is no consistency with dining experience from one visit to another. Equally, the quality of our food left much to be desired and we question whether or not anyone really cares too! I ended up have stomach ache over night and into the following day as a result of eating and spitting out a 'weird' and hard tasting half chicken from the 'specials board'.... as for my partner, her food was cold and again not to the standard experienced in the recent past. We will be giving The Raven a wide berth in the short term to hopefully give Emery Inns and the management team an opportunity of redeeming themselves.... otherwise- good bye.

Although the restaurant was very busy we didn’t wait long for our order to be taken and the lovely food arrived promptly. Great catch up with friends.

We waited 50 minutes between our starter and our main - despite only being a table of 2. We had to chase the food up and no one asked us if we'd like another drink at all. The roast dinner was really not value for money, looked like a cheap cut of meat and the potatoes were not homemade. Very disappointing.
