Called in there last Thursday. Great pub/restaurant with friendly staff. We didn't eat there but enjoyed our drinks in a great atmosphere.

Great pub in the classic vein, very clean, tidy, efficient and welcoming. Maybe presented in a too well oiled way, but wadworths is a refreshing change in Greene king land as food is honest and tasty although approaching fancy food price points.

Popped in several weeks ago, had a pleasant meal and a decent pint. Food was what you paid for and very honest. Staff were friendly, although a few more smiles wouldn't go a miss.
Overall very good, clean and traditional. will return.

Wow! We really enjoyed this pub. Such a lovely setting to mark our special evening. The food is excellent. The staff are down to earth and so are the prices. Very glad we booked as it was busy even though we were quite early doors.

A really good pub. First visit since new people (who've been here a little while). Liked it before. Still good now.

Well redecorated and furnished. A good cosy, comfy feel. The punters were a nice mix of types and ages. You know the sort of thing, slightly posh looking middle aged friends with meal and bottle of wine, slightly not so posh fellas having a chat at the bar and some (very nice) youngsters. That lovely mix of good old friendly boozer but nice enough to enjoy a meal in. Dogs welcome I think.

Usual wadworths beers. Well kept. Food was good. Definitely home made. The landlord and his wife were both cheery with that good balance of checking how things are running while having a smile and a chat with whoever wants one. Staff all good and friendly.

There was a group of acoustic (no loudspeakers) bluegrass musicians jamming in the corner. They were good and atmosphere was great. Didn't drown out conversation and it's a big enough pub if it's not your cup of tea. A monthly thing. Some people were obviously there to enjoy the music, for others it was just their local and some had come for a meal. Can't say fairer than that on a Tuesday night.
