Very disappointed in the food. Lacked any seasoning at all and definitely not value for money. Drinks also very expensive. £2.30 for a soda water.

There were 6 of us, 2 children, food reasonably priced and ok, service awful, no one came to see if ok, had to clear our own plates away as noone bothered, we ordered bottle of prosecco as fizz Friday, £15 very nice, decided to get another now about £25, we thought maybe it had gone up as offer only on to 1900, asked member of staff after ordering and he checked and said yeah on offer all night, explained and said we paid full price, he just looked said oh well shrugged his shoulders. Whole experience dreadful. We are in Pergo restaurant, excellent service. Would not recommend Antler Bar at all.

My friend and I had a lovely relaxing hassle free afternoon at the Antler. Once we got the hang of the IT ordering system all went well. My only niggle is with what I ordered to eat. I ordered the chargrilled bacon and chicken salad with avocado. The bacon and chicken were chargrilled to perfection but the avocado was replaced with cubes of cheese. As it happens I like cheese but it wasn’t what I was expecting and believe this substitution should have been conveyed to me before I was served in case I wanted to change my mind. Despite this overall our visit was most enjoyable despite this and I would still visit again.

Wear a coat it's freezing, elderly customers would appreciate help with logging on to place orders. Meals came separately and had to send 1st dishes back so they could come together. We choose this place because of the previous good food and service and for our 1st time out since March last year its a big disappointment and we won't be back any time soon.

Had Sunday lunch a couple weeks ago here and it was lovely however today’s Sunday lunch was terrible. Veg was awful and not worth £10.95 at all.

It was very heavy rain and we had a toddler with us so was panicking we'd get wet. The staff were fantastic, sorted us a lovely table undercover near the heaters. They couldn't do enough for us and the food was just beautiful. Can't wait to go again. Thank you all

Our evening was lovely, they have done everything they can to keep you warm. While sitting outside it would of been nice if there was a designated smoking area, I didn’t appreciate the owners wife smoking behind us during the current pandemic. One of our pizzas was slightly undercooked but no check back was made so we couldn’t raise it. But overall the food was lovely.

Food was nice, the service wasn't great as you couldn't get anyones attention (over via the app but more extra bits, to ask a question etc)
Outdoor setting was freezing, the heaters aren't very effective and seating uncomfortable. Very few covered areas (we were lucky to get one)
