We were advised by the manager that they would be closing early due to inclement weather. He encouraged us to arrive early and the staff were very kind and helpfu

A 5* plus lunch experience. Staff were well organised and the food arrived very quickly. The tables were spaced apart and under umbrellas and heaters. The food was excellent, especially the steak meal. This was our first outing in over a year. I'm so glad we chose to visit The Raven. Thank you again.

My friend and I often have lunch at the Raven. It has always been reliable with good tasty pub food, plentiful and delivered with friendly service. The patio area and garden is perfect for COVID safety measures.

I understand we are in a booking system and eating outdoors but was somewhat disappointed when I was told my table was booked after me and if I could get my bill and go, There was a lot of empty tables or could have been asked if I wanted to move to the general seating area This is my usual go to place but after Saturday I will probably look for somewhere else

We were so lucky to get a table before the Christmas lock down. Thank you for a lovely meal in a safe and comfortable atmosphere. The service was spot on too. We will return when we are able to eat out again. Wishing Happy Christmas and a safe and more positive New Year to all the staff.
