Middle House - following a few unsatisfactory experiences which prompted my mixed review of two years ago, I have fallen back in love with you again. What a relief! Best foody pub for miles around with a warm atmosphere and, as ever, top-notch staff.

I almost wonder if a pub can become a victim of its own success - this place clearly has a significant reputation and, as such, can become frighteningly crowded at times. Having said that, there's no excuse for not allowing punters to sit down anywhere unless buying a meal - that's no way to convince people who've dropped in for a drink to stay and eat. My advice would be to try and find a time when the place is likely to be quieter and enjoy it then - it won't be terribly cheap, but it still offers pretty good value for money overall. I shall try to return at some point this Easter or over the summer holidays - living fifty miles to the north-west means I can't visit the area all that often.

I can't find myself recommending this place from purely a drinker's perspective. Finding nowhere to comfortably stand on a Saturday night, the three of us shunted around the floor as we dodged serving staff (and boy didn't we feel like we were spare parts). So moving to a table when it became free "sorry you can't sit there" and then passing to another area with empty leather sofas "sorry this is only for people using the restaurant". The high density seating appeared to indicate they must be doing something good on the grub, as it was full and surely no one would bother otherwise. So the whole experience left me feeling I was on my weekday morning tube journey to Canary Wharf. Call me old fashioned, but despite having many of the right ingredients (OK pint of Harveys, timber beams, that olde worlde feel and visually good looking food). Just because we ain't eating your grub, we are still that rare commodity - discerning customers with cash in the pocket who tell others when they feel let down. Shame really, as I won't be rushing back to sample that high density commuter experience.

By the way, 31.15 for three people, for starters, main courses and good quality apple juice (Ringden Farm?), comes to under 10.40 a head, which strikes me as very inexpensive for what you get!

Had an evening meal here about four years ago! Pleased to see that most people's reviews accord with my own experience. Not cheap by a long way, but very high quality food in possibly the most stupendous pub building in the country. Nice friendly place, rooms looked nice, large car park round the back...
