Bought our first round of drinks and then was told that a lot of their menu options were unavailable. If we’d known before ordering the drinks, we wouldn’t have bothered. After a long wait for food, we ended up with cheese-less pizza with limited other toppings and no fries. So disappointing and barely an apology or discount to go with it.
Lovely atmosphere, great service and lovely food.
Lovely place. Lovely food and drink. Well looked after and felt perfectly safe throughout. Hugely impressive to be so well organised and covid secure but still giving a friendly and warm pub experience.
Awesome service as usual and the food was great. The table was ready when we arrived and perfect for 3 people.
5th.visit post lockdown.
Excellent as always.
Very very safe, or I wouldn't keep returning ; which I intend to do very shortly.
The staff do everything possible to make your visit safe as well as enjoyable. And they succeed .
Well managed and a slick operation
V good COVID-19 management
Tasty pizzas and yummy Halloumi fries! Will be back very soon
Food and staff excellent as always,however my first night out in over 5 months was ruined by the pub allowing a large very noisy group with 2 unruly kids touching other tables and being disruptive.I was shocked and felt uneasy that there was no social distancing amongst this group of around 10 people and my table in what are very small rooms at the Minster Inn.
As a local it’s my first ever bad experience there but really they should consider the size of each party under the current restrictions.Poor show sorry to say,the staff heard all of the noise and commotion and didn’t tackle it.They did however offer a 25% reduction the bill.
Visited the other night and received exceptional food and service as always. We would highly recommend.
Good food and service. Pizzas are fresh, home made and lovely. We had Vegan ones but with proper cheese 🧀.
Excellent new pizza ( Florentine ) , same top quality ale.
And have ordered some 'illicit' bread ; looking forward to that
Great beer, great pizza. Come here frequently and the BOGOF pizza deal on Sunday's is great value for money.
All covid safe measures in place and pizzas were delicious.
Always a fantastic and relaxed environment. Really good pizzas and drinks, great offers through the week and on a weekend. Great location and lovely staff!
