Drinks order was incorrect (which in itself would not warrant a poor rating but this contributed to the overall experience). Placed our order and was mid-way through bread and drinks when the waitress advised us there was no mash potato left. We had specifically visited for a Sunday dinner with mash and, if we had known at the time of ordering, we would have gone elsewhere. The waitress acknowledged she should have told us when we ordered.

When the meal arrived, the roast potatoes were tough and like they had been warmed up from earlier in the day. In fact everything seemed like it hadn’t been freshly cooked - perhaps this was because we came for a later sitting but still, for the prices and quality of restaurant we expected better.

One of the waiters was extremely helpful and was apologetic and knocked off the price of some additional sides. However, for two soft drinks, bread to start and two Sunday dinners this came to just over £60 (Inc. Service charge which was automatically added To the bill).

We eat out regularly and do not mind expensive meals as long as we feel the service and quality of food reflects the price. Unfortunately, on this occasion, that was not the case.

The ambience , the atmosphere was great.Limited choice on the menu and a little overpriced for what it is, £18 for half an aubergine come on guys !! This was my second time, first time was in early 2020, it was great and had better choice on the menu. My steak was overcooked. Will I be back , no can I reccomend the place , yes if you like overpriced food. If you like a good steak Gaucho, Miller and Carter are much better. Service, atmosphere and ambience were great though.

The food was great, not large portions but that’s not what I was after, my main course was delicious, the desert was not my cup of tea but the main made up for it. The service was exceptional. A nice Christmassy lunch.

Fantastic Sunday Dinner - Set menu is really good value for money and the restaurant was lively with great atomosphere.

If there was to be one improvement, would be to employ more staff. The staff were great, but I think one additional member of staff would have worked better, with the table covers they had in that day.

I thought the White Onion Veloute was outstanding

And the Roast Beef dinner was spot on!

The Gingerbread Brulee was fantastic!

Can't wait to visit again

We were sat in a dark corner and had to ask for more light. The air conditioning was dripping on our table and into my friend's food. She got given a new plate. The food was okay.

We have been coming here for years and have always loved the Sunday lunch but this time we was disappointed!!! We were all set to get the beef dinner (our usual choice) until the table next to us (table of 4) sent back all their beef untouched! Saying it was too chewy and fatty so went we for the lamb (previously had and loved) but to our disappointment was the same! Too chewy and fatty! Large pieces of gristle and my knife struggled to cut through it!! Disappointed to say the least!! And to top it off our waiter was not very friendly! He was not the most accommodating and after 2 mins of putting our lamb dinner down asked if we had finished with the mint sauce which when we said sorry no as my husband hadn’t used it yet he then slammed it back down on the table!!! He then continued to make us feel unwelcome at the restaurant!! Such a shame as we loved it here for so many years and spent quite a bit of money!! Will not rush back

Overall food was not worth the price, drinks are okay, just the atmosphere is really relaxing and cozy.
Had some issue with my food, as the fish was soggy and not tasty at all, but the staff has apologized and didn’t charged for the meal. So recommend this place for the service, and atmosphere, just for that

The food was very average. I never send food back but the risotto mushroom had to be sent back as all you tasted was garlic and salt! Service was good, we had a lovely waiter. Overall it was okay! We love eating out and trying new restaurants but personally we wouldn’t go back again. Overpriced and under delivered unfortunately.

The food is always excellent at The Crafthouse and this was no different under the Eat Out Help Out scheme. Special menu was good but the only slight criticism was that the wine and water were not chilled at all and no bread unless requested and paid for.

Different and refreshing mix of flavours and dishes, well presented and with great service. Drinks arrived promptly. The cheeses had lots of varied biscuits and accompanying flavours in chutney, quince and fruit.
My only complaint was that the bench seat (couch style) was a little low for me so I felt like I was perching on it leaning in up to table.

I was looking forward to dinner here for a while now. The decor was unimpressive for a five-star restaurant. Appetizers were so so. Beef tartar does not look like what's advertised online - it did not come with the egg on top. The raw meat was brown, the smoked salmon appt was ok. The main course was excellent, very delicious. I was pleased with the main. The service was great and find the staff to be very helpful and friendly.

The location is nice and I guess it is unfair for me to fully comment on the service due to Coronavirus measures. However, I feel the food was overpriced and the toilets weren’t clean and without toilet roll. For what I was paying I expected to receive a high end restaurant experience but I didn’t feel this was the case. Overall, it was just a very average experience and average tasting food for what you pay. It was for a 21st celebration so I thought they may have thrown in a free drink or something considering the amount you pay but this was not the case.

A pleasant lunch. The chateaubriand In particular was excellent. The restaurant had few customers which led to a subdued atmosphere but the serving staff were friendly and helpful. It was an enjoyable if not distinctive experience.
