The food is always excellent at Tykes but the service is painfully slow. Our waitress was really lovely and was working really hard but having one person serving all the tables whilst others look like they are doing nothing/ are waiting for food from the kitchen to deliver clearly doesn’t work. It’s such a shame as the food and building are really lovely. We would visit Tykes much more often if the speed of service could be improved.

The young waiter did not know the difference between beer and lager telling us they did not do beer! Saw the pump on the way out!! The risotto accompanying my fish special was flavourless and very gloopy!! Apart from that the food was delicious. Felt they were slightly understaffed. Would have no hesitation on returning.

Very enjoyable meal for taking my Elderly Father out for Father’s Day. Being a bit hard of hearing he commented on how nicely spaced the tables were which made it easier for him to hear our conversation. Food was very good ( maybe slightly slow service for some ) but we were in no rush and don’t mind that when the food is cooked fresh. All staff very polite, friendly and efficient. Only note would be we chatted about having larger family gatherings at Tykes but having 3 vegetarians in the larger family the veggie options were few and limited which may deter us - which is a shame as all else was excellent - maybe a couple more veggie options ??? Thank you !!!

Consistently great food and service. Love the Sunday dinner and the fact you can have it on an evening and it’s as good as lunchtime. Friendly staff, lovely and clean, good wine list, local ales - keep it up!
