We very much enjoyed our lunch and will book again very soon. Just one concern: the tables were a little close together so that conversation from our neighbours was a bit intrusive.

My order was chilli chicken salad and it came with a honey mustard sauce and no chilli. The other person had a chicken dish which the chicken was covered in bq sauce and was spilling all over the plate, it was covered. My partner had a steak and it came well done and he asked for medium.

This was our fourth visit to The Raven and up until then, the food had been amazing! However, on Sunday night, while celebrating our daughters birthday, we found the food to be not as good as previous visits. The burgers were very dry and my sons hunters chicken was also over cooked. Also, a bit disappointed that the ‘pavlova’ was just two meringue nests with cream and a few bits of fruit and a drizzle of juice. Bit of a cheap shot we think! The service we received was excellent and the staff were very obliging. Will will visit again I’m sure as it’s a lovely place.

The food was as usual generous. Service a little slower and not as attentive as we usually receive. But as the weather was so good you were very busy.

The toilets are in great need of refurbishment and the baby changing facilities I found were poor.

Good food. Service was a little slow as it was very busy due to good weather. Good weather was predicted so perhaps more staff to cater for this busy bank holiday would have been a good idea. Other than that we had a very nice afternoon in the garden. We will return & recommend.

We have been going to the Raven for many years. Food is always good and portions very generous. We like the fact that there is a smaller appetites menu for those of us unable to manage the full size meals. Good selection of lunchtime lighter options too. Service is usually very good and we like the atmosphere. Lovely garden for the days when the sun decides to make an appearance.

We have eaten here before and it’s been good but on Sunday the service and food was poor. We all had to start whilst one of our party had to wait for their starter and then the same happened again for the main course. The meals that did turn up together weren’t really of a great standard either, the pastry on the specials steak pie was way over done, the roast dinner was cold and the bacon on the hunters chicken was rock hard from being over done. Overall a very disappointing visit, I don’t think we will be in a hurry to return.

Our walking group arrived one hour early for our lunchtime booking because of bad weather. Non-the-less, the manager fitted us in without a wait. We had a jolly good lunch and all the food was piping hot when served. Whispered tip: less sugar in the puddings.

I had the salmon bear aisle. Salmon and sauce were fine but the potatoes were earthy and not nice at all.
