Food just slopped on the plate, no finesse at all and little choice. Vegetables didn’t go together and the portion sizes were too big. Fish was undercooked and unappetising.
At £20 a head for just one drink and a main it was very expensive for not a very pleasant experience at all.
Won’t be back or recommend.
Lovely food & good service. Will definitely eat here again.
Al veggie dishes had garlic which am allergic to. We were offered table under stairs in entrance hall.
Next to all their supplies !!!
Ended up on high chairs !! Not a very romanticevenimg
Lovely restaurant and food. Nice touch having some board games that you could play if you wanted to.
Service very poor!
Had to wait an hour and ten minutes after the starter before the main course arrived!!
Good food, lovely staff. Very easy to book on a busy sunny day.
Staff were extremely friendly and talkative, food was great and arrived quickly. Beautiful spot to visit
Nice and clean and very pleasant and friendly staff but we were disappointed with our Sunday roasts. Pork and roast potatoes very dry and carrots hard. Very good red cabbage.
The sweets were fine.
A pleasant pub garden by the road side. Staff were pleasant but not particularly attentive (never asked if we would like more drinks). Starters were great but roast beef was disappointing (tough meat and on the cool side). We weren’t asked if we enjoyed our meal.
Food was excellent especially the cauliflower flatbread
This is a hidden gem
Special thanks to the great service provided by Fraser.
We did wait a long time for our meal to be served but when it came the food was very good.
We did order olives as a small starter and asked for bread which we expected to be crusty bread but came as two slices of white sliced loaf which seemed strange! However the bill had 15% discount so I guess this reflected the delay.
Very friendly relaxed pub. Good staff and great food.
1st visit, garden seating. Wow, so relaxing & wasn’t disappointed, Snitzel spot on & service so precise & friendly, deserves high rating. Will be going again.
Although we chose to book a table outside we asked for an inside table on arrival & luckily they could accommodate our request. The service was prompt and staff polite. We all enjoyed our meals. I do think by booking at 6.30pm we experienced a good service all round - I will go again at a later time and see if the situation remains when they are more under stress !
We had a lovely Sunday lunch and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We are pleased that the Inn has returned to its lovely relaxing and unhurried pub.
Our table was booked for 7pm. We arrived at 5:45pm we’re not from the area and was hoping for drinks outside until our table was ready. Due to the lovely weather they had no outside tables but happily let us have our table inside early. Great service and lovely staff checking to see if we were ok and asking what we thought of the drinks and food. I would recommend to others so glad we managed to book.
Fantastic friendly staff. Clean and comfortable rooms
It was an excellent atmosphere, tasty food and incredible service by a friendly team. Will be back to sample more of the menu!
Great food and great service! highly recommend the Inn in the park
The food as extremely good and reasonably priced. Even my 91 year old mum cleared her plate. Delicious tender lamb and fantastic chips!
Great venue for a family meal.
The food was great and the meal was hot some places it’s warm. The service was friendly and quick.
We really enjoyed our fish and chips and particularly liked the friendly service. As a local we can walk to the Inn so would like to come quite often. My only suggestion to improve would be to have maybe a daily specials board so that the menu varies maybe weekly. Just a thought. Will be back soon. Sue B
Pre-booked midweek dinner for 2 plus a dog. Great welcome, efficient and friendly service. The interior is clean and inviting. Quiet on the night we visited but still had a good atmosphere with other customers dining. Impressed with our meal, ample portions of well cooked quality ingredients ,which were served promptly and presented with care. Overall a lovely evening and we will be back!
Good food, fast service and helpful staff. Menu somewhat restricted by late delivery of food from suppliers, but not a big deal. very quiet lunch time, but it was a Tuesday and very soon after the place reopened.
Our first meal out since lockdown. Safety measures in place do not take away from experience. Great service, will be back again!
First venture out to eat. Sat outside out of choice. Everything ok
We've had a table for 6 people at 6pm.
7pm we have been told that we need to leave 7:30pm because another Group booked a table for 6. We said that is okay as we meant to go to Town anyway but then like 5 past 7 woman came to tell us that we need to leave quarter past 7 because someone re-booked the time. She also said that we can stand outside and have a drink which I dont think was quite right to say by a waitress. Drinks were just drinks and cheesburgers were just cheesburgers. Nothing special. Don't recommend the place to anyone.
Glad they are back after such a traumatic time since they took over the pub. This is a trad pub (with 5 ensuite rooms) with trad service ideals. Not a clever Bistro or Gastro place just a nice place to eat drink and enjoy the environment backed up with great personal service
Great! I think I’ve said it all with the star rating!
Great welcome. Understandably shortened menu but disappointing to see some classics like there home made pies are no available. Maybe a wider selection of burger options would be a good altermative
It was lovely to visit this traditional pub/restaurant the night before the New Year’s Eve lockdown came into force.
The ambiance was very nice and the food, tasty and plentiful.
Thankfully, there were no intrusive Covid barriers/Perspex screens anywhere, apart from a few notices and bottles of hand sanitiser on each table, it looked like the good old days!
We had a nice chat with the new tenant/manager, Maggie, who told us that she had only just taken over the running of this venue, and hoped to make a success of it. Good luck to you!
Hopefully we will be visiting this lovely pub again, this year!
Pleasant and friendly, safe distancing. The food was very good. Customers are reminded to adhere to CV-19 rules. The managers are friendly and service is swift.
The atmosphere was relaxing as low background music, tables distanced apart. Every where looked clean, and hand sanitisation gel on every table.
I would recommend this venue.
excellent evening, would highly recommend to friends
Excellent service, food was hot and delicious, my Mum said the chips with her steak were the best she’d ever had!
Just moved into Westbourne and have been meaning to try this pub. Finally had lunch there and we were not disappointed. Great food, wine and ambiance in a lovely pub. The managers were very helpful and friendly. Have now booked for new years eve. Highly recommended.
Great place to eat and drink and Maggie and Darren are great hosts.
Ideal place for a few beers and a lovely meal. Everyone was really friendly and welcoming.
Great place, cosy on a rainy day, staff and owners terrific. Friendly and helpful.
Sunday lunch good , potatoes a bit over roasted. We were seated under speaker and music whilst nice was distracting
I enjoyed eating at the Inn on the Park. If I make one criticism they asked how Ai liked my beef. I said pink but it was well done but tender so no real complaints.
Nice pub with decent food, table service after the meal was poor.
