Imaginative food, cooked deliciously. Staff friendly and attentive (but not intrusive), lively atmosphere. Good to see them bouncing back out of lockdown - so well deserved. Our new ‘go to’ place.

We enjoyed our lunch here using a Travelzoo voucher. We were readily able to substitute the glass of Prosecco for the glass of wines we prefer. Food choice was wide. It was well cooked and served. Our table was set well apart from others and with the staff masked we felt COVID secure. This was our third visit and will not be our last. One of our favourite local places to eat.

Excellent food and service. We sat out on the patio, but because it was undercover it was brilliantly warm and dry!
First time visiting but will definitely be back. Amazing chateaubriand steak!

As always, The Snipe was spectacular. We had a great table outside (with an umbrella....much needed in the sunshine). The usual great service and wonderful food. Really looking forward to the new menu coming in July.

Food taste and presentation was mediocre , music was too hectic and disturbing , loud rock ! Staff very nice and service good , however the Food should be the focus as it is expensive ! And it really wasn’t good .

We are regular customers and that we had booked a late arrival didn’t affect the usual excellence service in any way

My son and I had a fabulous lunch in Saturday at the Drumming Snipe. We were greeted by Manuel and served by Mercer and Mark who couldn’t have been more helpful and polite. Great team atmosphere and the surroundings and decor very high end.
The food really was delicious and my son opted for a whole lobster 🦞 he said it was outstanding! He’s eaten in some very fine restaurants and this was exceptional! 🥰

Food and service was excellent, lots of fish and seafood on the menu. Highly recommend. Was quiet noisy so would suggest asking for a quieter table.

From the moment we arrived to paying the bill the staff were very attentive and pleasant. The food was of excellent quality - maybe more choices would have been good but overall we had a good meal and will certainly be back.

Menu choices, excellent. Staff, attentive. Service excellent. One minor criticism, the menu online needs to be updated (my favourite starter, Cod Cheeks shown online but not on inhouse menu.)

The roasts are excellent and very substantial. Potted shrimps, soup, steak tartare were all fantastic. Staff are incredibly attentive and the atmosphere is very relaxed and quiet. I would highly recommend this gastro pub for a very nice meal. It is quite expensive, which has the added bonus that although it is very child friendly, you naturally tend to have less children present due to being more expensive that most of the other local pubs. The quality of the food, attention to detail service-wise and the relaxed ambiance make it well worth it! highly recommended.

Outstanding service (prompt & attentive) and excellent food. Marginally pricier than many other places but worth it for a special occasion. Seats by the bar were a bit noisy (but we could have moved if we wanted to).

The food and drink was extremely overpriced (£35.00 for a bottle of Prosecco! Please!) The starter was mediocre with bread so hard I couldn’t bite into it (potted shrimp) and the main (halibut) was ok but only lukewarm and the chips we ordered as a side dish came 15 minutes after our main! My friends steak was also cold.

We won’t be coming back. I’ve had better meals at Subway!
