Sorry my beef roast dinner wasn't very nice, steak was stringy and tasteless. I sent it back and got given a fresh dinner. The service was rushed the waitress was 'speed' personified. She checked on us within 1 min of being given our meal. Then didn't approach until asking for the bill which she produced in a flash. overall, i was disappointed with the food on this occasion. Also, my partner observed one of the kitchen staff, scratch his back, blow his nose, he did wash his hands and continued to plate up. We were sat right by the serving hatch and had a good view of the kitchen.

We had a company night out recently for 11 of us. We did not really look at the prices of drinks and food as it is a PUB not the Ritz. I am so sorry now that we did not look at the prices! OUTRAGEOUS! If we were at the Ritz we wouldn't have minded paying that and more but we were in a local pub. We will NOT be going back and I recommend everyone to read the prices first before booking.

Table was booked for 7 Sat at 6.50 main Corsa finally arrived at 8.40. My steak was small and like old leather and chips were all burnt. Spoke to manager who agreed we waited too long and that my food was unacceptable. Asked if we would like a drink I assumed as apology but having accepted we were charged for them too. 3rd visit here 1st 2 visits fantastic but this one was horrendous and no one seemed bothered.

Service staff were brilliant. Food a bit of a let down. My chicken breast was fine. My Partners steak and ale pie was really dry inside like it had been warming for too long and had dried up, although pastry was good. Gravy was bland and jelly like, mashed potato was Luke warm at best.

Food and drink were lovely and service when we arrived was fantastic. however, we were forgotten about and after asking for the dessert menu twice we finally got them but no one came to rake our order and so after 25 minutes we asked for the bill and left.

Uninspiring menu, nothing like the winter one, starters and mains unappealing. Food average at best. Our 5th visit and this was a great venue when opened with fabulous food and gradually dropped back since then. Wife wanted chips INSTEAD of mashed potatoes and you charged extra, a bit cheeky!. Beef and Ale pie too much pepper. So disappointed!

Hi team we love the Viking as it’s our local we visit often Unfortunately our last visit was not the best as we were seated and no one seen to us for 20 minutes and we had to go and find someone to serve us Vegan Sunday roast was delicious and served very prompt Unfortunately the cauliflower cheese had no cheese sauce on it maybe due to the confusion of some meals being vegan and some not. This will not stop us from returning though as most visits are trouble free. Thanks

Unfortunately really slow service and had to wait considerable time for puddings, which where only ice creams and Eton mess. Staff where very friendly and clearly working hard but the restaurant wasn't overly busy. Food was all good and felt value for money was good but the drinks prices (soft drinks especially) very expensive, could do with drinks menu including cost of soft drinks being available so know when ordering. Did ask at the bar as sure there used to be better drinks menus but not available. Have been viking a few times and just felt disappointed this time unfortunately.

I booked a table for 4 covers. We were given a table for 8 very close to the bar and would have had people standing right behind us. The young lady on reception was not best pleased when I asked for a change of table. She did comply with no pleasantries, smile or eye contact. Our waiter, on the other hand, was first class, helpful, cheerful and knowledgeable, a credit to the restaurant.

2nd time visiting the Viking (1st time just as it opened and was extremely slow service) Service was ok this time as it wasn’t too busy (even though was a Friday night in the height of summer). We ordered pizzas...nothing special. Mine (which in fact was the special) was a bbq chicken pizza but I tasted no bbq and barely any chicken. Pretty bland all round so not sure what the fuss is about this place really

Unfortunately we waited over an hour for our main meals we were given 20% off the bill but it was a ridiculous wait, the chicken with salsa verde had lots of olives with it which were not listed on the menu I hate olives so that spoilt my meal but by the time we got it I just ate the chicken breasts and left the rest

We had a great time at the Viking. Made all the better by the exceptional service from all of the staff but especially from Alex! He made the whole family but especially my little boy so welcome and comfortable and really went out of his way to keep him happy! Really looking forward to coming again!
