The Butcher’s wasn’t even open when we got there. Total darkness. I rang no answer. Left a message. No one rang back. Someone else had a booking half an hour after us too. We all went somewhere else to dine.

Our dinner at The Butchers was lovely, they had unfortunately run out of a couple of items we had ordered but that was not a problem because what we had instead was delicious and cooked very well.
The service was excellent and they made you feel very welcome.
With regard to noise I think we probably made most of the noise out of everyone but it was gorgeous - thank you.

An excellent meal - we chose the quieter location of the restaurant - but had a drink after in the bar, so got a good balanced feel for both and you could eat in either

Absolutely excellent food , fresh ingredients , well prepared and nicely presented
Very good value for money
Only issue was the lights were too bright but they happily turned them down when asked

Burger was raw

Calamari tasteless

Asked for a squash, they sent a large bottle of still water. I clearly just wanted tap water.

Ambience in back room is shocking.

Service needs some sharpening up.

Such a lovely pub (to look at), but just isn’t hitting the mark.

Staff were lovely and friendly. Nice atmosphere and good service. The food let it down. The lamb was tough and I couldn’t cut through my veg. My hubby wasnt impressed with his meal either. We didn’t say anything as the staff were so lovely,

It was nice, but the food menu is very limited, especially vegetarian (1 main available and this was mushroom risotto). Found the drinks very pricey too (my gin was almost the same price as my main). The service also took a long time baring in mind the restaurant was almost empty.
However, it’s nicely decorated and cosy inside and has a lovely beer garden out the back. The food we did choose was nice and the staff were really friendly and welcoming.

Overall, it would of had a higher rating if there was a wider food selection and service was a bit quicker.

The standard of food and presentation was below par for an establishment with a good reputation that we visit regularly. We intend to visit in a few weeks to see if there are any improvements before we consider eating elsewhere nearby.

Disappointed to have a limited menu due to kitchen staff shortage.
Would have been good to be advised ahead of arrival so we could have considered an alternative venue.

from the advert we though we were booking an up market gastro pub.
It had noisy music, it was cold, the service was haphazard, the wrong dishes were brought. My wife did not get anything she had ordered. The craft beer was off. A real disappointment.

Sadly this once lovely restaurant was a disappointing experience. A table of 5 we had 3 roasts and 2 fish. The roasts were nowhere near as tasty as previously experienced, both the meat and yorkshire puddings were a little on the cool side, fortunately the gravy helped bring the temperature higher. Similarly the fish dishes lacked any great taste and again were a little on the cool side. We only had two puddings, one of which was fine but the Earl Grey Pannacotta left a lot to be desired and when my husband complained it was taken off the bill, however this was not communicated to us other than looking at the bill. This is a local restaurant and I certainly don't want it to fail however we will not be returning for food until we know things have improved.

I thought the quality of food did not reflect the price....I had the lamb which consisted of two tiny pieces which were overcooked (noone checked on how the meal was as there was a wedding on) and 2 luke warm jersey potatoes....not much else....it was my first time there so I was disappointed

Booked garden seat,,was called to say garden not in use and offered bar. Only menu available was wings in the bar. It was my husband birthday and we were expecting a nice three course meal!
Wings were nice but not the meal we were going for!

Really disappointing. Everywhere else was booked up and I now see why. Overpriced and predominantly deep fried menu. Limited selection of real ales and vegetarian mains. The wild garlic risotto was horrid.

The chicken wings are the best EVER and the chateaubriand with bearnaise sauce was sublime. Had to send the chips back to be cooked a bit more, but this happens in most restaurants...triple cooked chips are really good. Nice pleasant servers, eccellent French granache wine at 5.00,per glass. Excellent meal.

Nice place. Lovely decoration and ambience - service was clumsy and starters were a bit hit and miss - scallops were tasty but only 2 and smaller than a 10p, red mullet undercooked - main courses were perfect

We had a wonderful afternoon, really love the layout & decor.
My only suggestion is to offer one or two more Scallops for the Starter.
I understand they are expensive but think £10 is a little on the pricey side for two.
Delicious Sunday Roast, friendly & knowledgable staff, social distancing & sanitiser in place.
Thank you, we will definitely return.

The quality of the food and cooking is very good however our chateaubriand was a little cold.
The tables nearest to us were so loud we couldn't hear each other on our table but thats obviously not the restaurants fault but I wouldn't be in a rush to go back on a Saturday night.
