    Very mixed feelings about the Goldcroft. The food was excellent restaurant standard. It was delicious, well presented, and piping hot. The service was incredible by all the girls in there. They were friendly, helpful, and incredibly polite. They couldn't do more for us. However.....the place has an identity crisis going on. On one hand, it serves restaurant quality food, but in the other, it's a pub full of screeching drunk people lounging and behaving like your local boozer, and unfortunately, the toilets reflected this too. For me, I'd happily like to eat there again, but not at the expense of the atmosphere. It needs to be one or the other. Pub or boozer.

    On arrival the staff were inattentive. I ordered the food at the bar as no one came to the table as promised. The fish was cooked nicely but the peas were not mushy as stated on the menu. The peas were inedible as they were not cooked enough. Quite a disappointing meal

    Our first visit here, we were very happy with our Sunday roast and look forward to returning on a regular basis to sample their week day meals. The staff were excellent and looked after us although they were kept very busy

    Only two on duty operating bar & restaurant and clearly stretched.Took a long time for food to arrive.Food ok but underwhelming. Had three mixed meats which was again underwhelming but wife had beef only which was ok.Anoying door kept being left open by kids playing causing cold draft.Left with plates uncleared from table.Will not be back.

    Friday night at 7pm was the wrong time to go for a meal there. Rowdy pub goers spoilt the evening - no wine glasses either - food was okish but nothing like we’ve had before - service was chaotic! it’s definitely a lunch time venue - never again on a Friday night..!

    2 people had scallops, and 2 people had the cauliflower bites for starters. Delicious, good portion size. 2 people had sea bass, 1 person had gammon and chips, and 1 person had the beetroot wellington. The fish was cooked to perfection, and the other mains were delicious too. Love the small menu choices, makes for better cooking. Thank you.

    We've eaten here many times and the food is always excellent for pub grub. On this day we were actually the only people in the pub at around 3:30in the afternoon, so very quiet. On the plus side we were served very quickly by a lovely member of staff and she was very attentive throughout our meal. When the food arrived it was really nice, good sized portions, freshly made and very tasty. This is one of the only pubs I recommend to others to visit for food, as we've been there many times and have never had a bad meal. We tend not to go for the 2 for one meals as they do tend to reduce the portion size down by quite a way, but if you only wanted a small light lunch it might be perfect for you. The prices have increased which makes it a little less value for money, but so has every other bar / restaurant. Give it a try, I'm sure you won't be dissolved
