This is a lovely looking pub/ restaurant. Unfortunately the food is pretty dire. I ordered Baby monkfish tail wrapped in pancetta on tagliatelle, with Chard..I received uncooked pasta, the tail , of the tail of the monkfish ( bit of bone with 2 small forkfuls of dry fish), Chard was limply hiding underneath the pasta and some raw on the top. ...all pretty inedible, thankfully removed from my bill. For pudding,, I ordered baked custard tart with strawberry and cream....Strawberries were ok but not seasonal, and cream is cream...tart was tasteless. Altogether a pretty rotten experience. On the plus side wine list is ok, and waiting staff were good albeit , obviously used to having complaints about the food...would have been good to have the Chef, step away from his microwave and come to the table to explain how he failed his cookery o`level and still managed to work at this pub !

Slow service, overcooked and tasteless steaks, had to chase bill and waited more than 20 mins because of till problem. Ended up offering my contact details as 3 year old grandson needed to go home to bed. I did not raise my voice or swear but manager told me he did not like my attitude. We should have sent sub standard food back but we did not want to wait even longer. Manager would not therefore reduce cost of meal so make sure you send meal back if not happy. There are many good Chef and Brewers but based on this experience, this is not one of them.

After the refurb, which looked lovely, we decided that we would give it a go. A hugh menu with some nice choices. But clearly this pubs downfall. After 1hr wait, a bottle of wine and a chat with the waiter the food turned up with it not being at local standard. Meal was unable to be finished ,so we ended up at a The Old Dog, which was both value for money and of a high culinary standard

Don't go there! Staff friendly enough but drinks and food took an age to arrive. To top it off, we all got food poisoning.

Nice pub but terrible management. Arrived 5.15 and placed order. Were served drinks and starter by duty manager at our table but over 1 hour later just before our main courses arrived he told us that we had to move because the table was reserved! We paid for drinks and starter and left. Chef and Brewer need to improve their staff training.
