    I booked a table for me and my partner for a date. We was put in between two families where we was squashed and had no room, I had to ask another family to let me out so I could use the bathroom, that was the second time we have been there, the first time was lovely but after that time I will not be using the Shire Oak pub again. We waited nearly 1 hour and 30 minutes for food. It completely ruined our date, I was very disappointed with how we was treated.

    Dear Katie. We are sorry about your bad experience at the Shire Oak and the delayed response. Please be advised that since your last visit the Shire Oak is now under new management. Cathryn and I took over the Shire Oak in October 2020, in the year we have been here we have corrected issues that needed to be and have took the Shire Oak to another level. It would be fantastic if you could give us another chance and come and see what we have done. Kind regards Rick

    Cant really write a review on food as we waited 1 hour and 15 mins and our food still hadn't arrived. Then to be told they still had a massive table to serve before our food was going to be started. Ended up having a refund as it was already nearly 8PM and we had children with us. I have never experienced this sort of a wait for food anywhere

    From the booking of the meal to leaving after the meal myself and my wife were 100% happy with everything. It was a valentines meal and the staff went above and beyond to make the atmosphere perfect. The table decorations were great and complemented the theme. The food was delicious and the cost was very good. We will most definitely return and recommend this venue to anyone. Well done all involved.

    Meal very nice service good, only thing that put marks down 2 idiots sitting at table using foul language and not eating just drinking. Unfortunately I realise you can't vet every person that uses pub

    This trip was so disappointing, waited an hour and a half for two meals. It wasn't as though the place was busy. When the food did arrive it wasn't exactly warm and it was unappealing too.
