    This was our first visit and it was a rare occasion for a meal out without the children! We booked in advance via Open Table.........so we felt we had to go. A lovely table for two had been reserved in the window. The place was surprisingly busy for an early Monday evening. We had been recommended to The Ewe and Lamb and we were not disappointed. The food selection was really good and we chose to eat from the set menu which is excellent value for money. The portions were just right so that even after three courses we felt comfortably full. Staff were attentive without being intrusive - friendly without being over familiar. A really enjoyable experience and we will definitely revisit and recommend. Well done!

    My wife and her sisters have been going to the Ewe and Lamb for lunch for a number of years. This time however they were disappointed in the set menu. The portion sizes were smaller than usual, the soup was usually served with a plate under the bowl, this time it was simply the bowl with the bread perched on the side. The fish portions served for the main course were smaller compensated by lots of batter. Service and staff were as attentive as usual but the food is not as good.

    Service was exemplary, waiting staff to be congratulated as restaurant was very busy at 6pm. Bottle of water came to table with screw top already open which makes one question what it actually contained. Some plates were slightly smeary, I didn't notice this but another in our party did. Food was exceedingly good and well presented. Value excellent, four of us, under £100 including wine and beer

    The starter of sardines was overcooked returned to the kitchen and replaced with another start of sardines which was hot & cooked properly. The waitress who brought our main courses plonked them down on the table and walked off without asking if we wanted anything else. One of the party did not have any cutler with which to eat the main course and was unable to catch the waitress before she vanished. One of the party had to go up to the bar to ask for cutlery. the noise volume was so high it was almost impossible to hear my table companion speak. We have eaten at The Ewe and Lamb on many occasions over the years but I am not inclined to eat at The Ewe and Lamb again.

    If it wasn't for the politeness and service provided by the staff, I would have rated this 1 star. The food was of a very low standard and I feel overpriced for what is provided. Whoever was cooking on the night I visited, needs some re-training. The steak was way overcooked. I had asked for medium rare and it came closer to being well done. The potato fondant was rock hard and dry, the cannelloni (for the life of me I cannot imagine who would put this with a steak!), was quite obviously frozen and after being cooked; all the water from the mushrooms soaked the plate. It was flavourless and looked extremely unappetising. Thankfully the staff redeemed the evening by kindly offering to scratch it off the bill; which was greatly appreciated.

    Did not find the creamed swede mash edible, amazed to find sea bass stuffed by cutting open the the top of the fish as opposed to underside- thought food was prepared by a chef who knew what they were doing!!, heavily over cooked chips greasy, pork rib eye was dry and over cooked and resembled chicken not pork

    We visited the Ewe&Lamb on Thursday evening and have been there many times at lunch time. The food was well presented and tasted good. The waiting staff were attentive and pleasant. We were hoping for a quiet meal out but unfortunately we were placed next to a large table of about 12 people and their 5 children kept going out to the play area and back in to the table running past our table. This you do not expect at 9pm at this restaurant. I know the parents should be making sure their children behave well in a restaurant but I would have preferred to have been seated somewhere else or warned that there would be a large -possibly noisy party - next to us (as other restaurants have in the past ..giving us chance to book another evening.

    Recommended by a friend. Very impressed with the on-line booking facility. Although we went on a busy Sunday, it was easy to get a table. Food was excellent, although we did have a long wait, but as we were not in a hurry, this did not matter. It was a lovely day, and people were eating outside as well as in, so the staff were extremely busy. Waitresses were very pleasant and helpful. All in all, an enjoyable experience. We will certainly go again.

    It was our first visit to this restaurant and it won't be our last. The food we had was lovely. The two men chose the fish and chips and both said how good it was. The fish was fresh and very tasty with lovely light batter. My friend chose the Coq au Vin which she said was delicious and I had the Pork Tenderloin wrapped in Pancetta which again was superb. The restaurant has a nice ambience and the service was good.

    Good food, pretty good value but the service left a little to be desired. We were quickly ushered to our table and there was almost a panic to ensure that we ordered a drink. We then waited and waited. We had to eventually get someone to take our order. The service did not get much better as the meal progressed.

  • Disappointing salad
    katyb
    Dined on 3/7/2014
    I know a lot of salads are disappointing, but the Chicken Caesar salad was particularly "limp". In fact it wasn't really a Caesar salad as there was no croutons or parmesan and since when does it contain tomatoes? I actually chose this dish as I thought it wouldn't have tomatoes as I don't eat them and they are always wasted. When my friends received their meals they looked nice and fresh and tasty, but I got a bowl of limp lettuce and a small chicken breast with lots of dressing and tomatoes, I wasn't impressed. The price however, was what I would have expected to pay for a proper Caesar salad. I thought I would make up for my disappointing main course with a dessert, but unfortunately, my choice, the chocolate brownie, wasn't available!

Food was served quickly but unfortunately NOT with a smile. The staff were very efficient just not overly friendly. The garden is great and our 2 kids thoroughly enjoyed it.

    We dined at the Ewe and Lamb with our 4 daughters and their partners. Initially, service was great with a drinks order being taken as soon as we were shown to our reserved table. Food order was taken as soon as the drinks were brought over. It was a fairly simple order - 6 Sunday roasts and 2 other meals. After quite a while - and having not seen the waitress since ordering - we were informed that as we hadn't ordered starters we should expect to wait longer for our food because they were "busy outside". Food was great when it eventually arrived, but after 10 minutes we had to seek out a member of staff to ask for our side dishes of vegetables. This is.a great place to dine if you're prepared to tolerate inattentive service.

    Food was delightful, well cooked and presented, and the early evening set menu was really good value. However, the table was dirty, with old crumbs and a blob of tomato sauce, and the cutlery was sticky. Our fellow diners had very noisy little children, but then it was early evening. The toilets were dirty and neglected.

I was surprised that on a Saturday evening there was a very reasonably priced offer menu with a good choice of food and we all chose from that. Food and service was excellent an beer excellently kept too. Fantastic value and a great experience.

    Have enjoyed eating here before with adults but not taken teenagers. Some meal choices need side orders of extra veg and we regretted not ordering them. Perhaps staff could suggest when taking orders that some meals do not have potatoes, for example. Lovely food for foodies like me. Well cooked and presented. Would definitely go again but probably not with hungry teens!
