    The food was non-pretentious and delicious. They accommodated our group's requests for swaps and changes to the food orders. I'd definitely go back and recommend it to others.

    Fantastic Sunday roast with great options (though perhaps there could be more options for vegetarians) and absolutely amazing vegetable sides.

    3 in our party went on a Sunday for lunch. Couldn’t book a table before 15.00 hrs even though booked 3weeks ahead. The roast dinners were excellent, meat was delicious, lovely Yorkshire pudding and a selection of vegetables. Will definitely be back.

    Delicious Sunday roast! Always so hard to find a good roast but Busby and Wilds didn’t disappoint! The veg that accompanied the roast was so tasty and lovely to have some things you wouldn’t have at home (roasted beetroot and I think some chestnuts in the cabbage!) the only thing that let it down a little was that the service was very slow to begin with, it took a very long time for someone to come and take our drinks order when we arrived that we ended up ordering everything. Other than that, the staff were great, very friendly and helpful 😊

    Had supper here in August 2021. Lunch on 26/iii. Food and Wine List materially better and more imaginative than your standard [gastro] pub. Attentive but not intrusive service. On a lovely Spring Saturday we dined in the garden at the back which felt it could do with some more and regular tlc.Great value. Well worth a detour. We intend to be back.
