    The four of us dined at the Parsonage recently for a family reunion. The food was very tasty and diverse in flavour, but the service felt slow after we placed our initial drinks order.

    It was overall a very good experience. The chicken schnitzel was quite disappointing. The pork cutlet and our starters were really good. The location scores with its superb interior. It is worth a visit.

    Menu was good, service was haphazard - it wasn’t too busy but I get we had to ask for service rather than be given it. Restaurant was dark and parking was a nightmare. Food was tasty.

    Thank you for your review. I'm disappointed that you felt that you had to ask for service. This is definitely not up to our usual high standards, and we have taken on board your feedback for future improvements. I am glad that you enjoyed the food.

    Sandwich had slightly too much butter. Victoria Sponge was overcooked and hard. Chocolate Tart was incredibly greasy. Carrot Cake was clearly frozen or over baked again. Orange posset was marmalade on vanilla cream base and not good. Scones were great and Cheesecake too! Staff were very good but the food let them down badly!
    Parsonage GrillResponded on 12 May 2024
    Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I'm glad to hear that you did enjoy the scones, cheesecake and the service provided, however I am sorry that you felt that your experience was let down by rest of the food. I have passed your feedback to our chef. I hope you'll give us another chance in the near future.
