The service was very good with a personal flair however the waitress also had to double as a bartender so often we were left waiting, more a lack of staff issue than service quality. The outside adventure pirate ship is a great feature for kids.

The meal got off to a poor start when the Pepsi Max and Diet Pepsi that 2 of us ordered were flat. We asked for them to be replaced. Things deteriorated with the serving of our (served cold ie you didn’t have to cook them from scratch) starters. We waited a long time to receive our starters of chicken liver pate, which we know you buy in. When I chased it up with the waitress she told us that it hadn’t been put through. When it eventually arrived, the bread - which was of very poor processed quality- hadn’t even been toasted. We complained and had to wait again while the toast was replaced. It wasn’t much better but I couldn’t be bothered having to wait again. Fortunately our main courses and desserts were better - but the mashed peas with our fish and chips was stodgy and tasteless. Please consider the following: a) I made our reservation on 15 June - we were not walk ins b) We are repeat customers c) There were only 5 tables of customers for most of the time we were there. If the staff can’t cope with processing orders for a small amount of clientele we cannot imagine how disappointing visiting the pub would be if we came on a race day.

Food was nice, however starter wasn’t very hot and service wasn’t great. Starters arrived before drinks, waitress wasn’t overly friendly. Wanted to order desserts but weren’t offered menus and then decided to just leave and paid at the bar as no one around to ask for bill. All in all we had an ok meal but could have been nicer. Would come back as main was lovely.

7 of us came in for Fathers day, 3 of us had the beef roast but the beef was too raw no-one ate it. We also witnessed a member of your staff pinching chips off a customers plate and eating them on 2 occasions as we were sat by the serving opening, this staff member looked like she was a senior member we thought this was horrendous and very unhygienic. The same staff member also spent alot of time on her phone very unprofessional.

Great Food, brilliant service and a nice chilled atmosphere. We booked a table for 16 originally, but our numbers went up slightly which was no problem at all for the team and we were looked after very well. The whole team were very professional, polite and efficient. The food was good value for money, decent portions, tasty and well presented. Our whole party were over the moon, satisfied and we all left with smiles on our faces! Would recommend!

The meal itself was lovely & the staff were excellent. However, the table was booked for 6.45 & were only served our food at 8.10 as they had "lost" my pre-ordered food list which was quite disappointing.

You were very accommodating with last minute additional guests and children but the service was awful. All drinks were wrong, food was forgotten about and 1 guest had to send her food back as it was inedible. We sat down at 4.40pm, children’s food arrived at around 5.30pm but the adults food didn’t arrive until 6.30pm and that was after us asking several times. No explanation was given. No apologies. It was such a shame as the location & food we received once it arrived was lovely.
