The Raven was a little gem to find ,lovely and quite, all the staff were very friendly and polite. Glad we booked the day before as it soon filled up even on a Saturday. Meal was very nice, large portions and pipping hot ,we don't normally have a dessert but we were tempted once we looked at what was to be tried, we were not disappointed either. We liked it that much we came back that evening for our evening meal, again a super meal and served by the same staff ,who after being there all day were just as friendly as earlier. Well done The Raven, we will be back very soon.

I arranged to take my Mother out to lunch on Saturday 16th. I couldn't have taken her to a better place on the day. The surroundings, food and service were fantastic. What a smashing pub / restaurant.

Nice Evening, friendly and happy stuff with very fast service. Went home with a full stomach which hit all the right spots. Coming from Gravenhurst which has no pub this is a local pub for us and definitely go back again.

We have been visiting the Raven for years, since I was a young lad in fact and now I'm 40+. It's is generally always enjoyable and friendly, but... I can't remember the last time the menu changed! There are very limited vegetarian options for my partner, who doesn't always want a spicy bean burger, especially on a Sunday when everyone else is eating a roast.

Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed the food they had. The service was very good and the staff very helpful and polite even though the pub was very busy and they were rushed off their feet. We have been before and will definitely come again.

Thank you for a lovely dining experience. Varied menu with quality food. My son definitely recommends the ‘Raven Ultimate Burger’ stating it’s the best burger he’s ever had!!! Family friendly, quick and friendly service. Catered for all our needs. A warm, inviting and cosy atmosphere in a traditional village pub. Will definitely be returning and have already recommended to others.

Staff were very friendly but we had to repeat drink order and request for Cutler 3 times. There was no break between starter and main so it felt like we were being rushed. Food though was excellent and staff relaxed once we had eaten which left us feeling like we would return.

Why was the restaurant so cold? The radiators were not on. I had booked for 12.15pm. Surely the heating should go on at least an hour earlier.As it was we ate our meal with our coats on. Very disappointing.

A little quiet on a Monday before Christmas. Food wonderful, if a little too much for a three course dinner but very tasty and well cooked. Good service with a smile.

Lovely staff, we enjoyed our starters and desserts but were dissapointed with the Christmas dinner. The roast potatoes were not home made which was dissapointing.

Not up to usual standards last night; some of my sirloin steak was gristly and the chips were a bit undercooked
