Great home cooked food, makes a lovely change from standard pub grub that is bought in. Lovely team who were friendly and professional. We will definitely be back.

The food was not worth the money! The children's menu was quite expensive and didn't Include a pudding! The service was good, waitresses were polite and friendly.

Beverley and her staff were so kind and welcoming and looked after our disabled member well. The food was lovely, lots of variety of vegs and lamb shanks delicious. There was one comment about the potatoes being a bit hard that was all, but generally a very good meal,and apple crumble with cinnammon v good. Good ambience and service Thank you from Friends of Rheinbach Margaret Willis It was a pleasure to bring our group here.

The menu offered mackerel pate but I was served chicken liver pate. The waitress did offer to take it back and take it off the bill but it was disappointing that the menu was wrong. Towards the end of the meal the staff made a lot of noise sorting out cutlery on a large table very close to where we were sitting. That just demonstrates poor training and would make me think twice about recommending and explains the poor mark for service. On the up side the rest of the food was good, there is plenty of parking and a pleasant garden.

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.
