    Amazing food as always but only downside was we were seated and no one came to explain procedure so we went up to carvery area but then was ‘told off’ for going up! So feel staff need to make it clearer to avoid a problem

    We came for the pie feast and the whole thing from start to finish was confusing we had no idea what we were meant to be doing as we had 3 different servers all saying different things. We waited for a good 20 minutes before we were even able to go and pick our food. i’m vegetarian and had to ask multiple people about what foods were veggie to find there was only one veggie pie option anyway- the chef was nice and explained exactly what i could and couldnt eat which i appreciated however when going to choose my foods i noticed there were no separate tongs for anything and so in actual fact none of it was suitable for vegetarians as i watched the person before us use the same tongs for the sausages and then the potatoes so i couldn’t eat barely any of it. The dessert was decent so only come here for sweet deffo not the carvery, it was bland and plain also, especially for the price we paid. deffo won’t be returning for this and honestly was eager to leave for most of the duration.

    We had a lovely birthday celebration meal and were made aware that we can provide our own birthday cake and decorations for the table, if we wish next time as we were unsure if we'd be allowed and honestly didn't think to bring balloons. The food was delicious. Our child had a wonderful time in the outdoor play area. Our server, Nathaniel, was excellent. He made sure we were well catered to.

    Rocked up on time for a 2 person booking only to ask if they could accommodate another 4, after a couple of minutes checking they said yes no problem. I couldn’t have asked for better hospitality than they provided and the food was outstanding.

    As usual we all had a lovely breakfast. But there was one problem……the two young chefs cooking the pancakes.. they both seemed to completely ignore anyone that was not young blonde and gorgeous…..at one point 4 of us stood in queue ….they choose to ignore us and only serve the pretty young ladies who were 5th in the queue. I asked why had we all been ignored but we were first in queue and he was quick to reply with “ I will serve who I want! “ This is not our usual service we get from The Ffolkes.

    Great atmosphere food and choice build your meal as much or as little as you like. I had the ‘Godzilla’ and Thai Fries. The flavours were plentiful and the chilli not overwhelming, the fries would be enough to share as the basis of the whole menu encourages.

    The st Patrick’s day event is a good idea and well supported, it would have been good to have had Irish music played rather than the modern mix by the guy with the guitar. I think a few extra bar staff would help as the service between order and reviving the drinks was sometimes 15-20 mins. Nice food and friendly staff. Thank you

    We were given a table furthest away from the Nelson’s Shantymen so we couldn’t hear or experience the atmosphere which is why we went in the first place. Also the table No 127 has uneven slates which caused my pint of beer to tip over and some going on my wife. The waiter however did replace it as he could see the problem with the table.

    Service was a bit slow, for clearing tablets, asking for dessert order, and dessert was very slow to arrive . Although I didn't ask for extra hot, our daughter did on her order, mine was very spicy.

    Lovely place, food very nice and our server friendly and chatty. However the service could do with some work. We sat and watched our drinks be made behind the bar and then watched them sit at the end of the bar for a further 10 minutes whilst several staff walked backwards and forwards past them and 3 standing chatting behind the bar. In the end my husband went and got them himself. Unfortunately the same thing happened yet again when we ordered again and we had to mention we had ordered drinks somewhile ago. The food itself was very nice and came quickly.
