our table was in a corner where normally no tables are placed. Very nice and helpful staff but the food and the price we paid for it was absolutely not in balance.

Nice environment and friendly staff.
Food good for the general diner but GF diners slightly missed out on the food offering, but I don't want to come across as negative.
One thing I would add, the food could be hotter on the occasion we visited.

The Chaser is always a good bet. Good food, friendly staff, lovely relaxed atmosphere. On this visit the service just fell a little short with intermittent attention. Nothing catastrophic and all the staff were welcoming, but things like ordering water and none ever turning up or asking for the bill and then being left with it for 15 minutes. Multiple different staff served us which may have been the issue.

Lunch with friends. Welcome was lovely. Food was great. Lots of staff walking about but service was v slow. Pub was busy but with all those staff wandering around, seemed plenty. Desserts came out slow, coffees ordered didn’t appear so asked again. They arrived after 10 mins later and on delivery we got told we need to hurry up as they needed the table back. Did not appreciate that at all as any delay was caused by them not us. We were halfway through drinking them and got told again we needed to vacate table. We explained it was their fault our lunch was slow not ours and did not appreciate being hustled out the door now we’ve spent the money. We left disgruntled and miffed which was a shame, as food was lovely, but customer service poor.

Some staff were rushing about which did not make it a relaxing experience. I have been coming here for years and felt the food has changed to more of a standard pub food menu, rather than classy food. I had the pan fried bass which was very small and covered in so much seasoning, I could have been eating anything.

It's a shame as the Chaser was one of my favourite restaurants, but I cannot see myself returning.

The vegan food was wonderful, my husband particularly liked the Winter salad. The service was great, your staff were really well trained, friendly, helpful and giving us just the right of attention. They worked well as a team. Overall we had a lovely meal and will certainly return.

We enjoyed our lunch although we only wanted a sandwich and felt only two choices of filling was a bit restrictive. Service was excellent and the staff very friendly. It was very nice to get a discount which was totally unexpected.

Always love coming to the Chaser Inn and although we live half an hour a way, it's always thr place we come back to or bring friends to. Service is always good and attentive. Food is always delicious. We love the character of the place and the warm log fires in winter.

Excellent service upon arrival. A nice friendly greeting from the front door and speedily guided to our pre-booked table. Service was swift and we had drinks on the table within 5 minutes. The food we ordered was excellent in both taste and value for money. A lovely time by all.
The staff at the Chaser go out of their way to ensure an enjoyable visit . Thankyou

Greeted with a nice welcome. Service, very pleasant and efficient
Nice ambiance throughout.
Unfortunately all four of us struggled to choose a main course which appealed, from your now very limited menu. One person chose the lamb, of which most was left uneaten as it was excessively fatty. The fish cakes were almost plain potato with very little fish.

I love the "conservatory" dining area and always request to be seated there, whatever time of year. Plenty of room between the tables, bright, but not overly so, and with a lovely "walled garden" feature. In the summer the roof can be retracted and in the winter still cosy and warm

Had a lovely breakfast at the Chaser on Sunday. The service was excellent and staff very friendly.
Breakfast itself was very tasty and we didn't have to wait long for it to arrive. It's a lovely venue and worth a visit.

Although we both enjoyed the meal the restaurant was cold. The fire in our section was not lit and it was a cold day. Normally we would stay a long time chatting but it was not pleasant being so chilly. Also our table was sticky.

Problem with parking, at best difficult, but on this occasion with access to the carpark closed it became impossible

Service was good? Though there was clearly a shortage of staff on that day. The food was enjoyable, and delivered hot. The price charged was very reasonable - though getting to pay seemed not to be on the top of the day's agenda!
