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

This was a family celebration which included all age ranges. The whole staff contributed to a lovely time. This is my second visit this year (previously in the Summer) with a large family group and the standard has been maintained to a night standard. Very well done and Thank you.

Food was far below normal standard. Scampi was overcooked and hard. Salad was very mean. Waiter was pleasant but found the hosts cold and uninterested. Won't be returning.

Food and drink were lovely as ever, as were the staff who are always prompt and polite. Most of us had visited the Raven several times before and always enjoyed ourselves. The only downside was that we were in the side room (painted dark green I think) and it was so cold when we arrived that we kept our coats on! It is usually lovely and cosy in the Raven so we were a bit surprised.

Great kids food menu so it's first choice for our kids and has been for years. Great play facilities outside so perfect for Al fresco meals in the summer. Food always good. Good variety of drinks.

Lovely food and service as always. Wish your pies had proper pastry and not puff that would be my only criticism.

Foods great but when you turn up and get seated right round the back in the corner when there are over half the tables in the bar area are available I think is well out of order so we will think twice about booking again

I found The Raven on the internet as I was meeting up with a former colleague and Hexton was about half way. The website looked good with a large interesting menu. It turned out to be an excellent find with good food, friendly staff and a lot of other diners. It is clearly a popular and well run pub. Highly recommended.

Food was brilliant, the trouble was the service was awful.... had the distinct feeling of being stuck in the corner out of the way and then being forgotten.
