    I have eaten here on many occasions before. The menu was always very good with excellent quality of food. Yesterday was totally different. The menu is now a typical pub grub menu and poor quality at that. Very sad to see this massive change. Without a significant change we will not be dining there again. Staff were all lovely though.

    This was our first visit to Spike's Bistro and we were very impressed. Service and food were excellent and we enjoyed our meal whilst overlooking the golf course in the lovely sunshine. We have already booked a return visit!

    Nice ambience with lovely views over the golf course.Waiter was excellent.Food not so great.My fishcakes were overdone .The coating was so tough I couldn't eat it.I should have sent it back.My husband's gammon steak was very thin, more like thick bacon.Shame as we usually enjoy the food a lot.

    The breakfast was very poor. Customers were actually stood at the food bar eating from the trays. Service was very slow. Unless there is an improvement we will not return!

    Disappointing. Cutlery was dirty and table could have done with a hood clean. Food was fair although one roast dinner should be marked down. Small for the price, lukewarm meat, burnt roast potatoes, very few vegetables and no Yorkshire pudding, sage and onion stuffing or apple sauce (meat was a few slices of very thin pork) I wouldn't recommend it consider using again.

    My only regret is that I didn't discover Spikes Bistro many years ago, despite having passed by many a time! It was a delight to finally eat there. A lovely view from the conservatory was well and truly matched by the quality and excellence of the food at very reasonable prices. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. I will certainly be returning for another great meal.

    The Waitress did not acknowledge us or greet us when we walked in. After waiting some time I walked over to her. No reserved table for us even though we booked. She sat us on a dirty table. She also forgot my drink I ordered. We sat near the chefs serving hatch and could see them standing about not doing anything. One guy walked across to an empty table opposite us from the bar and saw some dirty cups and saucers on it. He walked back to the bar and ordered the waitress to go across and clear it! Why could he not clear the table? Dreadful. We will not going back because the service was awful.

    having visited many many times together with the same couple and others, and always having good food, we were disappointed yesterday to find that the Hunters chicken was dry overcooked and bacon black in parts very burnt. The fish and chips was tasteless and the fish extremely thin. Again disappointing, and the eater was very ill last night with sickness. So not sure if it was from this food or not. Wouldn't have contacted you to complain , but you've sent a request for feedback so here it is in all it's honesty1! We will consider a return in the hope that this was a one off.

    Your new chefs are very good. We brought some visitors from Guernsey with us and they were very impressed with the roast dinners they ordered. My Thai curry with chicken was good but could have had more sauce as a bit dry. We are coming again this Sunday for lunch with other friends so hopeful it will be as good.

    Our Sunday Carvery Lunch was delicious. The service from staff was spot on with friendly and helpful staff. Sitting in the Orangery looking out over the golf course in the sunshine was a real treat. We will definitely be coming back and would strongly recommend to others.

    I am not too keen on the chips however, love the gammon, would prefer with the larger portion there would be 2 eggs rather then one. Omelettes very good as are some of the specials.
