Relaxed table service for the food which was ordered by app and brought to the table by friendly human. Made to feel welcome throughout our stay, food was really good and we will return soon to support local business.

Safest place to visit following Covid 19 lockdown. Measures put in place are excellent and administered well. Good atmosphere both inside and out and lovely place to sit in the sun on an afternoon and evening. Very pleased with visit and happy to return.

Enjoyed our meals all was well presented. Two of our desserts were not warmed through but that was quickly recified and deducted them from our bill which was appreciated.

They did not have any record of my booking, I had my confirmation email. There was no problem seating us and the service was excellent and friendly. Lots of new measures in place which were clearly explained on arrival. Food was nice, only complaint was the side of mac n cheese was tasteless.

Can not be beat! Sunday dinner was beautiful and would 100% recommend the belly pork. First outing in post-COVID-19 environment and The Stickey Wicket has comfortable social distancing down to a tee! Atmosphere is not affected whilst at the same time ensuring the safety of customers.

Yet again a fantastic all round experience at the Sticky Wicket. They had prepared extremely well for the re-open after lockdown and have the best staff working there.

The set menu on a Sunday is good value, excellent choice. Lovely food. Service abit slow, more organisation needed & im not a fan of dogs sitting round people eating, there should be a particular area for them. But we will definitely return

Barmaid was a great help turning on commentary for the football. Food was decent. We will be back to watch the football more often.

Booked for Sunday lunch, arrived at approximately 2.30 and was seated straight away. Table hadn't been wiped down so was done while we were seated. Ordered garlic mushroom starter which when arrived was about 6 or 7 mushrooms absolutely smothered with cheese, far too much cheese for the size of the dish. There was no cutlery on the table and when some was brought there were 4 knives and only one fork so off to the bar I went as there was none available where the cutlery is stored. Main meal arrived which was mince and dumplings. Dumplings were hard as rock all the way through. All in all not a very good experience as this is the first time at the sticky wicket. We eat out regularly and this has to be the worst experience in a long time. Very disappointing to say the least

Four of us ate on a Monday lunchtime & for the majority of the time twe were there we were the only customers. The food - three dirty burgers & a mince & dumplings was absolutely fine but what spoiled the visit was the fact that the bar was cold. Whilst the barman did his best to get some heat to come through, the only place that was warm was the entrance between the two sets of doors. This is a large space & perhaps if there had been more customers there would have been more of a cosy atmosphere but from this experience we won’t hurry to return
