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.

Been to Raven on a number of occasions, and always good value fit money and service. Tonight was disappointed with the slow service ( 70 minutes wait for starter) also had to get waitress attention a few times for drinks.

Your friends were very impressed with their visit. Both food and service were really good. My friend could not finish her meal and the waitress boxed it up for her dog who is a bit fussy and he enjoyed it!

Lovely evening out at The Raven with excellent hospitality and great team service.... food cooked just perfect and we couldn't fault any of it for taste and quantity. Always on our list for a good evening out- thanks as usual.

Service was efficient and friendly. The food was well prepared and very tasty although the portions were a bit too large and resulted in waste which we don’t like to see

The food in general was very good however my husbands steak was very sinewy and hard to cut through. We complained about this but were not offered any discount on the meal which was disappointing

As a regular visitor to The Raven, I am very happy with our visits and always get a very good meal in an enjoyable atmosphere. The only concern is having to fill in a form after every visit!!
