Went for a Sunday roast late afternoon with a friend - food was good but unfortunately our experience was spoilt by a large family party on the next table who seemed oblivious to the fact anyone else was in the vicinity & might not want to have

So pleased you had a good meal! Roll on May 17th when we can (fingers crossed) seat guests inside as well so there is more room for everybody

The food was so good and our waitress really went out of her way to find something I could eat with being a vegetarian and having IBS it can be very hard. Our waitress was also very attentive and although it was quite busy we didn’t have to wait long for our dinner

Thank you Hannah, we are pleased you had a good meal in the end. We are super proud of our team- they work so hard too. Come back and see us again. We do a vegetarian special of the day every day, so if you call in the morning you will be able to find out what we can offer in addition to the menu on the website. We hope to see you again soon

Our meal was ordered and forgotten
1 hour 40mins we waited
The manager was apologetic and refunded our wine which was much appreciated but still we missed out on our starters and generally got passed having desert and coffee
So many people came in and were eating before us and not one member of staff clocked the fact that we still had no food
We all enjoyed the food once it arrived but the chips were cold and had to wait for hot chips
Really didn’t want to complain but really not a great experience

Our local pub,it’s had it’s up’s and down’s ove the years but at last it seems to have found its niche. The pub is professionally run,the service impeccable and the staff always seem to go that extra mile for their customers. The food is very tasty and the menu always has “specials “ included. Overall the pub is very comfortable with all the tables observing the social distancing rules. I feel very lucky having this pub on my doorstep.

This was our second meal out since lockdown started, and didn’t compare favourably to our first on the COVID safety front.
Don’t get me wrong, if I’d eaten here before lockdown i would of rated it higher.

There was little care taken to limit staff proximity or contact, and no track and trace.
All we saw were staff playing with the thermometer that I assume was for COVID checking, not using it on patrons. No masks were worn and only one door was propped open.

The food was good. But I’d like to of seen more care taken regarding COVID safety.

The Duke of Wellington
Responded on 3 August 2020

Thank you for your feedback regarding our safety procedures. We understand how important it is for our guests & team to maintain a safe environment, now more than ever. We have implemented many new procedures to ensure our pubs are Covid-safe, some of which may not always be visible. We have a track & trace procedure, and a member of each party's details should be being taken. For an overview of the other measures in place to maintain safety, please contact us via our website.

Nice pub in a very nice location, just the outside garden (that' very nice too) is a little bit noisy because of the main road passing by. The service was efficient and professional.
The Sunday roast was nice, also the vegan one, but I would have liked to see more vegan options on the menu.
