About The Raven
A traditional village Pub/Restaurant located on the edge of the Chilterns 5 miles west of Hitchin and 5 miles north of Luton offering traditional pub fayre.
The young waitress we had was awful! She spoke in monotone and said "are you ready to order or don't you wan anything!" The word "Yeah" was used as we each had to give our order. She slammed the sugar bowl onto the table and slid our cups across! Never in our copias amounts of times visiting The Raven have we received such sloppy, rude service. We were also rushed into ordering our food with huffing when we weren't ready after taking our seats for 3 minutes. Some staff training urgently needed. I have worked in this industry and know how quickly people stop visiting if your staff are rude and non-interactive with customers. Shame because we have always loved The Raven.
Prompt service and attention..perhaps you could have more variety for gluten free menu.
i eat in the restaurant at lunchtime a lot with friends. we always find the staff friendly and efficient. the food excellent and the value for money is good. would recommend to other friends and relatives..
Lovely, friendly and welcoming staff. Perfect place for catching up with friends over good food.
Service was friendly but rather slow. We appreciated it being child- friendly and open on a Monday, unlike the other 2 local-ish pubs we'd considered.
Great choice of dishes on the menu plus daily specials. Dining inside and out. Prompt service of food which is freshly prepared (including the salad!) Service is friendly and helpful. Prices are in line with similar places to eat. They have 'whippy' ice cream which is a definite bonus!
Excellent service, great food Will definitely return
Visited with a party of 22. The staff were very accommodating and it all went very smoothly.
Been here a couple of times now fantastic service great staff and the food is superb, but have to say last night was rather loud, me and my partner could hardly hear each other talk otherwise excellent place and would recommend to anyone.
Always a lovely atmosphere in the Raven and fantastic food.
Everything lovely nothing to complain about
As mentioned to the publican, our visit to The Raven yesterday evening was vastly better than our previous experience. The presentation and quality of meals resembled the high standard we had come to enjoy last year and it seems the new chef has pulled things round- so thank you and we will be back!
The staff here were really friendly and knew good customer service
Online booking allowed me to make booking at a time when large party booked. Had call from Raven to ask if we could make our time later.
Lovely meal and great friendly service. Would defiantly recommend.
Lovely setting, great friendly helpful staff. Food excellent.
We had a very nice meal at the Raven on our wedding anniversary. The food was very nicely cooked and enjoyed by everyone in our party. The service was good and the staff helpful and polite.
Lovely food and service as always
It's the first place I think of when I want to eat a nice meal out. The standards are refreshing.
Steak was not cooked properly, this was changed but by the time it arrived my partner had finished hers, so it spoilt the evening which was a birthday celebration
Service was definitely not with a smile and the steak and chicken was over cooked. This is a shame as it used to be one of our favourite places to go. Unfortunately I doubt we will be dining here again in the near fixture.
Had a great meal for 4 on Sunday24th July. Service and food were excellent- we will return. Thank you
It was the first time I have been to the Raven and had a lovely meal. I will definitely go there again.
I have only given "service" 2 stars. We tried for some time to catch the attention of the waitress in order to order dessert but without success. There were very few customers at the time but nobody was keeping an eye on the tables to see what was needed. The food was very good pub food and the smoked salmon and prawn salad was excellent. Puddings were a little on the large side!
