We tried to have a drink here today ( Saturday lunchtime) but there was no one behind the bar to serve us. I did ask the men in the other bar to the side if anyone was serving. After a couple of minutes waiting we strolled up to The Imperial instead. Pretty hopeless really.

Nothing good to say really, awful and unwelcoming atmosphere. Food not too bad though.

After, what seems like, two years of temporary Licensees, Tony and Cecelia, from the nearby Cross Keys, have taken the Weavers over full time. They have brought with them their exceedingly good range of English and Thai food; the only real beer so far has been the cockermouth jennings which is perfectly acceptable. Hopefully, this pub will now return to it's former glory, I will certainly be patronising this establishment on a regular basis again. I wish them all the best.

A lovely old building - it is even better inside than out. This has recently been taken over and has been cleaned up a lot, we were told there is more work due. Louisa is the manageress and she keeps a mean pint of real ale, the best I've tasted in a while. The new chef has really got his act together. we enjoyed a meal there recently and plan to take family there v soon.

Called in here for a pint on the way to (and from) the Saffron curry house on Thursday. The ale was most excellent - a great choice on the pumps and the IPA I opted for could not be faulted. Add the roaring log fire on that cold November night and this made for a brilliant boozer.

Ample parking and with the amount of lighting on the roof timbers it's also easy to spot if you don't know the Southborough area!

We enjoyed a delicious, typical English roast at Weaver's on our visit from Dresden and found the service to be impeccable. Our brunette / copper-highlighted waitress was charming, efficient and helpful. We shall definitely be returning next time we're in England.
Auf viedersehen, Wilhelm

I too was suprised to read the other reviews. I hadn't been there for 4 yrs as it is a bit pricey, but a group of 6 of us went yesterday & had a superb time. It is such a beautiful restaurant / pub inside & out & there was a lovely atmosphere created by the friendly staff. We had mains & desserts, which were of a very high standard & beautifully presented. It worked out at 17 each, which considering we had 2 courses & 2/3 drinks each was very reasonable. The waitress who served us was polite, friendly & professional at all times. The service was excellent. A good time was had by all & I can therefore highly recommend this restaurant.

I was surprised to read the other 2 reviews for The Weavers and wonder if they're writing about the same Weavers that I know! My husband and I really like this pub - the staff are exceptionally friendly (particularly the restaurant staff) and the food well presented and delicious. The only downside is that the restaurant is very close to the bar so it can get a bit smokey (cigarettes) at times - but this will soon change with the government's smoking ban. In the summer they have patio tables in the garden which is nice for lunch or a drink. It's a lovely pub and would recommend it to anyone.

The oldest building (which happens to be a pub) in Southborough dating from around the 16th Century. This gorgeous building has a average chain-pub type food. The lounge is lovely when the coal fire is lit whilst the other "bar" side is a bit scruffy. This place is almost there but needs to improve it's food to be in the frame. Populated by socio econmic groups of mostly C1's and the odd C2. Beer garden also - but thankfully no tv's
