    Both chose the lamb rump main, perfectly cooked, accompanied by a mixed bed of vegetables which looked quite small but was surprisingly filling. Followed this with a cherry sundae each, probably loads of calories but who cares! Very enjoyable meal and friendly staff. Will be returning.

    We had a very good time. A party of 7 people went there to have a dinner and some drinks and everything was perfect. Cocktail delicious and also the food. A lot of choices. We were warned that they would close at 10pm so we decided to have our last drink at 9.30, but as these things tend to drag on we saw that the staff, at the end of their shift, had a couple of drinks for themselves so we relaxed too and they didn't even give us another notice that they wanted to close, which I think was very generous of them.

    This was my first time visiting here for lunch. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The table was very good the service was very good and ubove all the food was also very good. A tad expensive for a roast but it was pretty good. I will recommend this only one thing not enough parking.

    Five of us had a roast dinner and we were all really happy with the food. All of us said the only thing we would change is the gravy, it was very thick and gloopy and quite tasteless, also better if not already poured over the food, otherwise delicious.

    Some of our dishes were really disappointing especially the Crabmeat Rarebit starter. It felt and looked like they had run out of the special started and had to put something together at the last minute. £8.50 for a 1 burnt piece of toast and some crab purée is dreadful. The pan fried lemon sole with stuffed with crab and avocado wasn’t pan fried but poached, and therefore not stuffed. The avocado purée was tasteless and the crabmeat was mixed in with everything else. All in all the dishes were very mixed and lacked seasoning. I had booed this dinner with friends as a trip away from home and thought the menu looked amazing and it was embarrassing to take friends there! The atmosphere and interior, pub itself was lovely and a great location.

    This was our first time to The Filly for lunch although we have been several times for dinner before. The menu is great, the food is consistently very good (we’ve never had a bad or even mediocre course before), the staff are professional and friendly and the whole place is just lovely! Would highly recommend and I look forward to many more meals here.

    The Filly Inn was always my go to even though it was a way to travel but I was really disappointed the last visit. The service seemed to have an attitude from the outset. The food wasn’t up to the same standard. I was thinking it may have changed management?? I’m so disappointed.

    The pub is nice but service is a little lacking considering at the time we arrived we were 2 of 4 people there. My booking wasn’t checked after I said upon booking ages ago it was a special occasion. It was warm so we decided outside was best in the end. I understand outside is order at bar only but even still after ordering etc (kitchen also closed early & we were not told at all & if I hadn’t asked for a menu when I did we wouldn’t have had any food!) it was quite slow & items of food were missing. We were hoping the service would have been better after being there last year (one night out of 3 we were there was good & rest was awful!) as we were staying there as well as dining etc. We also then weren’t checked upon at all after we got our food so even when something was wrong we had no one check on us. It wasn’t very busy at all so we felt very unwelcomed! Not sure if it was a lack of staff or lack of knowledge but either way we weren’t impressed. Was very nice sitting outside in the garden area catching up with old friends & celebrating but felt most unimpressed by staff assistance & care. Food was ok, chicken schnitzel was very oily. I know it comes with butter but the butter is normally on top & it was kind of swimming in butter. Will give it one more chance for sure but I think staff need to be better! Pub has great potential but care of customers is needed. Bar staff are great though.

    Group of 5 eating. One gets his burger, than the kids get their food and 40(!) minutes later the other 2 members get their food. By that time the chap with the burger is finished, the kids are wanting pudding but we’re thinking nooo, let’s not order or we can potentially be here for another hour just waiting for puddings….. Please look into this. Really poor customer service.

    Lovely pub, helpful staff. Very few dairy free options on the menu, so my choice was limited - hence only four stars. However, the lamb rump I had was five star, it was delicious.
