We ordered fish and chips for my grandson. They were extremely oily and the fish was really just batter, so he left all of it. On our way out, the waiter in charge asked us how the meal was. When I told him it was not good, he immediately offered me the money back. Brilliant customer service and would come back on this basis - also, the pizza the previous Wednesday was lovely,

Yesterday was the first time going to the pub since lockdown one! Honestly it was fantastic. So lush to eat food i’d not cooked and drink a huge glass of wine! I felt safe. Service was great. Food was great. In fact I booked straight back in for Sunday lunch because I have dreamed about your pork belly roasts a lot in this past year!! Thanks!

The food went cold very quick due to plates not being hot, was not happy with the admin fee on ordering without being told but being told we had to order online so there was no choice in the matter

Have always enjoyed it here before and was looking forward to coming back. However on arrival, even though it didn't seem that busy we were greeted in quite a hap-hazard manner. When shown to our table none of the process was explained to us of how to order etc. We had to ask when we saw a member of staff passing by. Only pizzas available, which although nice was a shame not to have more on offer. Told coffee machine wasn't on, yet saw an empty espresso cup on the bar. Worst part was my partner text me as I was leaving to ask if we 'enjoyed the fizz', he had pre paid for a bottle when he was in the night before to be brought out as a surprise when I arrived (went with my sister). But it hadn't been brought out! So I embarrassingly had to ask at the bar and was told they had completely forgotten. I kind of got the impression they hadn't actually noted who it was meant to be for. As we were leaving by that point, I was just given it to take with us, although in hindsight should have really protested and asked for a refund, as if I wanted a bottle of Prosecco to take home I would have bought one at the supermarket for half the price! The whole point of paying £20+ is to enjoy it in the pub. So this was pretty disappointing. Probably won't go back in a hurry to be honest!

We ordered Jamiesons and ice x 4 and it was delivered in shot glasses with no ice. Not a good way to serve this whisky and we had requested Jamiesons and ice. Table service was really great until this point. Otherwise we had a lovely afternoon.
