The food was very good. The fish I had was well cooked and the vegetable portions were both generous and full of flavour. Service was excellent, friendly with frequent checks that we were happy, fed / watered. Excellent draught beer from the local Spitting Feathers brewery. I felt that £7.00 was a touch over priced for a large glass of wine.
lovely green area by the river on a sunny day, good choice of beers and helpful staff
Slow service, long, long wait for food and overpriced food.
Friendly welcome, popular but not packed. Food was quick but not rushed. Will I be back ....I certainly hope so
The service staff are delightful. We had a nice meal there our first night staying at Gladstone’s Library.
Excellent food and service when food came, but had to wait for over an hour to arrive.
Fabulous Sunday lunch. Would highly recommend, my friends and I had a wonderful meal.
Sandwiches were served on very stale brown bread so I only ate the ham. Chef offered a dessert as compensation. Two dogs were left sat at the bar whilst their owner went outside. That's fine if you're a dog lover but would have preferred not to have had 2 dogs at my feet whilst eating my stale sandwich. Sausages and mash looked good.
This pub was a hidden gem! Much bigger inside than it looks and lots of little rooms and different areas for dining or drinking! We sat in a room with an open fire and both had the mixed Sunday roast (chicken, pork & beef) the portions were huge, with more than enough veg for both of us!
Perfect location for a walk around Wepre Park and a Sunday roast afterwards. We will definitely be back.
Friendly helpful staff. Excellent food and surroundings.
Excellent Sunday lunch in lovely setting. Dog friendly too! Highly recommended
The pub itself is lovely and cosey with open fires. I feel that the food has gone down hill at the Glynn in the past year. We used to go regularly and the food was spot on, but that hasn't been the case recently. Small portions, little veg, and the dauphinoise potatoes had never seen any cream or cheese.
Over priced for what we received. Its a real shame this place used to be a gem for both food and drink, now sadly it will be just drinks for us.
Good food and service but the restaurant is always cold and little atmosphere.
Terrible experience at the Glynne Arms - service was awful wouldn’t even give it a 1 star! For a table of 7 only gave us 3 sets of cutlery, no offer of any sauces etc - we felt like we had to ask for everything that should have just been there. We waited 20 mins for our drinks and ended up picking them off the end of the bar ourselves. The staff behind the bar were incredibly rude. The tapas food was horrible. We never normally complain about anywhere we go but this was honestly shocking!! Avoid at all costs!
We had to leave with food in a bag as order never received within 1hr 30 mins. Also when we arrived they said there was no booking under open table at all. Not great I’m afraid
Good food and excellent service , the availability of gluten free meals on the menu was good but would be even better if you could stretch to some gluten free crackers on the cheese board, leaving off the crackers does not a gluten free cheese board make !!
Slightly disappointed with the food. I had heard such good things.
The Truffle Parsnip Soup was not nice and had large lumps in it. The Christmas Turkey dinner was missing sprouts and was not particular hot. The only positive part of the food was the dessert with the Xmas pudding really tasty and hot.
Atmosphere was really good, however felt the service could have been slightly better as the food was plonked down on the table and I rarely spotted a waiter/waitress to request for further drinks.
Lovely feel to the pub and restaurant but food quality was generally really not as good as we had hoped for and expected. There wasn't anything that we would have wanted to send back so we didn't make any comments (perhaps we should but sometimes you just don't want any awkwardness when out to have a nice time) but as a party we all felt that it was just ok rather than any of us coming away thinking that we wanted to rush back.
Service without the smile. Disappointing service. Waitress forgot parts of the order. Food was expensive.
Booked a table at lunchtime for a member of staff who was leaving. Booking was for six people, the restaurant was very quiet - it took 45 minutes for the food to be served. One meal was wrong we were told it would take 20 minutes to make the correct meal. My colleague said he would just accept the alternative as we did not have the time to sit and wait another 20 minutes. Unfortunately his chips were cold. We complained when we received the bill, the lady serving was very apologetic and took 25% off the bill.
Booked for a birthday celebration for 10 people. Fabulous service and delicious food. Great atmosphere and cosy real fire to keep us warm. Really enjoyed our meal there and will definitely go back.
The food was lovely but the service was dreadful. 30 min wait to have two drinks brought over to our table... I could go on...
An excellent visit, excellent food made much better by the fact that you are dog friendly,
Lovely family Sunday lunch. Great value with the two course option. Waited 1/2 hour for the crumble..... by choice as they had run out and fresh one cooking. Well worth the wait I might add! Staff as ever very friendly and welcoming. Looking forward to the next time.
the food was truly terrible poorly prepared poor quality, one of the worst meals I have ever eaten
We should have complained and refused to pay
Tasty food, excellent service, friendly staff, great atmosphere. Will definitely go again, a great Saturday night. Thankyou.
Having had a very good meal here previously we booked for dinner on Sunday evening . Unfortunately we were disappointed. It felt that we were being given the left overs from lunch time. All three courses were lacking in some way but apart from the meat, the main course was the worst... Frozen and then overcooked roast potatoes, obviously frozen Yorkshire pudding and inedible, bitter greens.
The staff were cheerful and did their best but possibly had not been properly trained as we had to prompt the waitress for horseradish sauce to go with the roast beef. There was also a lack of communication somewhere as the couple on the next table were given menus, ordered drinks, made their choice and then the poor waitress returned to tell them that the kitchen had shut!
We are now left thinking which of these experiences were a fluke - our previous excellent meal or the waste of £50 on Sunday.
I must stress that we felt the waiting staff were not at fault, they cheerfully did their best but it seemed were let down by poor management.
Came for Sunday roast and stayed on for the pub quiz. Food was lovely, really tasty. Great service from staff. Had a great time at the quiz afterwards, had a fun evening, highly recommend
Had a quick lunch after visiting Gladstone Library. Fantastic atmosphere, buzzing and excellent food and service !!
As it's in the Good Food Guide, I had expected the food to be of a really high quality. However, I felt that the food didn't quite match up to my expectations after looking at the menu online. It was nice, but lacked that something special about it. I had the grey mullet, which came with what seemed like ordinary mashed potato and a creamy sauce with leeks in it, which was pleasant but nothing special. Also I thought the veg was under-cooked. The whitebait was lovely, but the portion was very small, there wasn't much mayonnaise and it'd have been nice to have a lemon wedge. However, my husband did enjoy his sea bass dish. In all, the meal was fine, but I felt a bit disappointed. I've been to restaurants that aren't in the Good Food Guide and had food of a similar standard.
The Glynne has a nice character with an interesting menu - that is the only good thing I can say! Food took 50 mins to arrive but what came was the main not the starters so taken back to the kitchen. 15 mins later out came the starters one lukewarm the other dry and missing it's sauce which I had to request. 35 mins later (after many enquiries as to what was going on) the mains arrived. We had ordered pork belly - this was rather tough around the edges plus the sauce was starting to set - obviously been sitting on the pass for a while.
We were offered free drinks and received a discount but the evening was ruined. We were also offered free desserts which we declined as we didn't want to waste another hour! There were several other diners experiencing the same problems - one even asked if there was any chance of their meal arriving 'tonight'.
This a restaurant in complete disarray. I would not recommend anyone to go!
Went for lunch and the options were limited/basic on the sandwich menu. And my friend and i did not fancy the tapas type options.
But on the plus side, the staff were friendly and efficient and the place was clean and welcoming with a good mix of customers.
Like the look of the options at their farm shop better so will try there next time.
Lovely evening with friends and the whole experience made for a really nice evening out.
The food was incredible, this was the perfect find. We had the Sunday lunch and it was much better than expected! The decor is unique and slightly rustic. Recommend to anyone that eats food!
- Food was nice for the most part, hot, good portion sizes and tasty.
- Service was very poor, we have been here many times for food and drinks however on this ocassion it was far below what is expected.
- Asked multiple times by multiple people about drinks and desserts meaning no communication between staff
- Drinks took a while to order and then receive
- Asked for condiments, didn’t receive
Overall whilst the meal was still nice, the many small issues took away from the whole experience.
One undercooked fish portion, but complaint handled perfectly, so no problem, good food well presented, and a last minute booking as well
Lovely place with great food & we had children with us but staff were all lovely with them
I was disappointed in the meal we went on a burger night and felt like the food was value food from the supermarket.
I'm afraid the food was very disappointing. The menu is ambitious and dishes sound amazing but the reality was that things were mainly deep-fried and/or overcooked with very tiny portions of the enticing accompaniments. The fish was bland and also overcooked, potatoes dry and undressed, and the leeks in the veg side were completely raw. The chocolate brownie (£6) was small, slightly burnt and came with a tiny portion of ice cream. Did not taste or look homemade.
Overall a very nice menu, which does not deliver. Overpriced and too little culinary flair and expertise.
Friendly and efficient service, delicious well-cooked food. The menu offered something for everyone and food was cooked to our preference.
