                                            Sadly, this restaurant has gone downhill since I first started going there two years ago. Gone are the vegetarian and vegan menus, the early evening menus, and additionally the standard of the food is nothing like it was. Yes the prices increase. Last night I ordered the crispy beef starter which I'd loved only a few weeks ago. Then it was served in a large bowl with plenty of cashew nuts, now served on a small side plate with a few peanuts added. My friend's fish and chips was mainly batter - and at £17 is way overpriced. She had to get the attention of the waiting staff to ask for vinegar and mayo, instead of being offered these - and they took quite some time to arrive. I feel sure Covid will be blamed but plenty of other places are up to speed. They also started to strip tables around us at 8.30 and we had to find someone when we arrived so didn't feel like we were made welcome. Such a shame because it has been lovely in the past. I'm (was) a regular but will give it a miss in the future.

                                            Had a lovely Sunday lunch at the Congresbury Arms, beautiful food, nicely presented. I had the chicken (very nice), two of our party had the beef (very impressed) and one had the pork (also very good, perhaps a bit more crackling needed!). Table service throughout.

                                            This restaurant is enjoying a growing local reputation and it delivered what we expected. We had a helpful and courteous reception, the menu was interesting and the setting understated and stylish. Personally we're omnivorous and were a little surprised that our guests who were vegetarian had only one choice of either starter or main course (in a modern restaurant in these times!), though they enjoyed the vegetarian meal they had - as did we our meat and fish selections. The 'amuse bouche' was welcome as were the petits fours which came with the bill. We asked for the volume of the ambient music to be turned down a little as we were close to a speaker, and the staff member obliged immediately. Overall we were well entertained and will continue to go there both as a couple and when entertaining guests

                                            Great experience. I will be definitely back. It was a catch up lunch with my friend and colleague and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The interior is lovely and spacious and light. Still some COVID measures in place which is good and reassuring to see. Making our reservation was very straightforward. The food quality was great as was the presentation. The only slight personal comment…..my peppercorn sauce was slightly too runny. That might be just my personal preference. I had steak with was done exactly to my liking and my friend had salmon. We both really enjoyed both the food and the service.

                                            I had scallops to start followed by a pork roast dinner. Loved both. Roasts are normally poor quality but l loved the food here and would definitely recommend it. My husband had mushrooms in a cream sauce to start followed by fish and chips. Both went down a treat. Excellent customer service throughout especially the gentleman at the door who wished us happy wedding anniversary.

                                            It was slightly surreal - clearly the current climate around Covid 19 was having an impact and that meant only a handful of diners but for those of us who ventured out on a Sunday evening this was a worthwhile treat. Service was excellent from the moment we arrived to the moment we were last out the door - enough time to peruse the menu, a great choice of wines and beers and knowledgeable staff who could advise a teenage daughter on the gluten-free options - this is a proper restaurant but with a relaxed 'pub' feel. A great menu and drinks list don't count for anything without the staff and they clearly have a talented chef here (don't go!) supported by/working with top quality front of house staff. We will be back time and time again for top quality food - try the pork tenderloin, scallops, squid, pannacotta - and staff who care.

                                            As always the Congresbury Arms did not fail to deliver. So lucky to have such an awesome pub locally. Great food, superb service and a lovely inviting atmosphere. Always 10/10

                                            Very good service, well organised. Good food - recommendation would be meal size to big and size of chips way to big. Specials were great flavours. Bread and dips nice touch. Shame the door from the car park is only for disabled access especially when tipping with rain.

                                            Very interesting menu allowing you to choose from less expensive options as well as more elaborate choices. The decor was exceptionally good with a lovely quiet atmosphere. Wonderful time had by all 3 of us (one being vegetarian who approved of the choices).

                                            First time here , will definitely be going again , the Rib eye was amazing, as was the soup of day and the beetroot cracker from the chef. Drinks not over priced, all in all a nice night out.

                                            They refused to serve me alcohol even though I was only after a small wine, and with my parents. I know it's protocal and all that but the people on the other table, both young and with parents didn't seem to have a problem with being served

                                            Great food and service. Lovely host. This was our third visit and we have not been disappointed at any time. If I have one criticism is that this time there was no venison on the menu but the truffle risotto was really good and it is better to have a changing menu I guess.
