Would love thick gravy with Sunday roast

Restaurant Response

Hi Samatha, thanks for the feed back. Due to the sheer amount of gravy we have to make, we have to make a red wine jus and not a traditional gravy from the pan juices. To keep all the gluten free customers happy we do not add any thickeners to the gravy. When you're in next, just ask and we can add flour to the mix to get the thickness you would like. All the best, Heath

It was quite warm despite sitting outside. It would be nice to turn off the gas heaters to reduce the environmental impact

Restaurant Response

Hi, we agree with you. We're not happy having to burn propane into the atmosphere, but unfortunately the level of complaints we have from customers saying that they are cold is unprecedented. We're doing our best to keep everyone happy, but it is really is hard to keep everyone happy. Hopefully summer will start soon and we can all enjoy the natural heat. Thanks for coming. All the best, Heath

Wonderful food as usual, lovely eating in the front garden even though it was, again, cold and wet. Didn't matter, cover and heater close by. Friendly service too, keep up the quality.

Thank you for another lovely meal. I have always enjoyed eating at your pub and I don’t think I have ever had a bad meal. The staff are lovely and attentive. You’re my favourite place to eat, my only problem is,I can never get a table. It was great to be back.

Everything was perfect. Huge thank you. The space in covid times was great. Service was fantastic and the l’occitane hand gel was lovely. And you kindly popped a bday candle on our sorbet- thank you. Food was yummy and the chips-best ever. Can’t wait to come back!
