Great that you have a vegan menu but please can you also have non dairy milk for after dinner tea/coffee?

The food was great, much better than most pubs we have been to recently. The decor is a lovely mix of old and new. The serving staff were polite but slow. The food took almost 40 mins to arrive but it was delicious.

It may have been a bad day but the speed of service was appalling. We where advised when we were sat down that there was going to be a delay. Our expectations would see that as around 30-40 minutes not the hour plus that we experienced. No updates from the team, no checking if we'd like more drinks etc. We were offered bread and olives while we wait but honestly, after an hour wait, would have expected these complimentary. Other tables had to seek staff to take drinks orders as did we to pay the bill. Everyone was polite and the food was good, it just could have been a lot better. Hope you have it together for monsters day this Sunday.

We visited for Sunday lunch but were disappointed with the quality of the food. When the meal arrived after a 45 minute wait it was lukewarm and some of the vegetables were under-cooked. Parsnips were almost raw.

Superb venue that's very modern with a twist of the old. Very clean environment and superb location. Food is without doubt one of the best pub meals we've had. Service is brilliant and attentive despite the venue being full as we attended the jazz night. Staff are always very happy, friendly and talkative. Highly recommend, especially the JH Jazz band. We will be back soon.

Had a party of 11 in New Year’s Day, when we arrived our table was only set for 8, this was quickly changed. We sat down at 2.00, but our food didn’t arrive until 3.30. Our overall thoughts are, you struggle to deal with large parties late afternoon.

Nice looking pub with over-priced pub food. Only two beers on tap. We were a party of 7 for Sunday lunch. The meat-eaters were well-served with a choice of roasts (although one of our party thought the beef wasp's') , no Halloumi Bugers left ( we arrived at 2pm) but the Nut-loaf was very poor. Stodgy and tasteless. Vegetarian food has really come on in the last few years - but you wouldnt know from this offering . Nice enough -but very young - waiting staff.
