Food and venue were great but the guard at the door was rude and abrupt.

Don’t recommend anyone sit inside, too hot, no air flow. We sat there sweating with no air circulation.

Enjoyed all aspects of my visit, including the ambience of surroundings and delicious meals served, but particularly the quality of service provided. Will certainly return soon.

Food was inedible. Burnt gnocchi. Chewy “slow cooked” lamb. Was refunded without a drama. Staff were polite. But won’t eat here again.

We had a booking for 1930, arriving early 1830 and were Kindly accommodated. We ordered the 400grm slow roasted lamb to only be told 10 minutes later they had run out. This should have been communicated at the time of placing our order.

First-time diner and thoroughly impressed. Service and food were outstanding. A meal of ours was stuffed up and the service team and chefs were super apologetic and even gave us free bread because of the mix-up (which we were not expecting at all)!

Great venue and beer. The service was great however due to miscommunication we received our mains after entree would have appreciated it straight after. The staff did not check with us.

Had the worst restaurant meal I have had for years.
It was so salty that I couldn't eat it.
Even my friends pizza was salty.

Service not great - staff at the door said they did not have our booking and didn’t receive menus to order food for over an hour. Other than that was okay.

Service is fast and friendly including the door security. Food is fresh and on par with the price. No long wait for food. Very good selection of wines and (obviously) beer. I'd say a bit better than good-value.

What a lovely evening at the Charming Squire. Table staff were friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Pizza di carne was excellent as was the Arancini balls and baked Camembert the 4 of us shared for entree.
We all enjoyed a sparkling wine.
Highly recommend - Especially while its not too busy!

Went on Sunday evening and in the restaurant it was pretty quiet. The food came fast and it was delicious. Friendly service, and the beer I was recommended was great too. Overall, awesome experience, and for the price you pay it is 100% worth it

My wife and I went in for a rare kid free dinner. Of the 5 mains mentioned on the menu three were unavailable. The two remaining were of no interest to us and therefore dining in wasn’t an option and as the hour was late we found it difficult to book anywhere else.

Pork belly was delicious, and the arancini balls! Highly recommend :) Only downfall was garlic bread was a little different to usual - maybe needed some butter on the bread, we love garlic but both agreed it was too intense. House wine was also great!
