    There is little spacing between tables and the first table we were offered was right in the middle and was the main walk through to get to the carvery. Luckily when we went it wasn’t too busy so we could move to a side table, other than that food and service was good.

    Food portions very small for the price. Clean area, toilets very cold, had to wait a while to be seated despite there being only a few people in the pub and being first in the queue. OK overall though. We would probably go again.

    The only complaint we had was that the tables where too close to each other and was a bit cramped! Oh and also noticed that couldn’t book another table for the same time for friends but there was about 4 tables empty. Food was ok n was a nice atmosphere though. Service was nice n friendly 👍

    Unfortunately after booking a table, when we arrived there was not one available (seems as though the process of pre booking at a set time does not work). Don't get me wrong, the venue itself looks good and the food maybe good, we just did not get a chance of experiencing it which made for a frustrating night. They really need to make sure that procedures are in place with bookings or they will lose potential customers.

    Waited over an hour on curry night, even though it wasn't overly busy No yourkshire puds on the carvery. Chips were still hard inside. Waited ages for acknowledgement to be seated. Food wasn't all that great to be honest. Wouldn't return again.

    The carvery layout was all wrong, right next to the kitchen doors so waitresses was struggling to get through. Table wasn't wiped down on arrival. Booked table for 2.15pm to be told they needed our table at 3.00pm . The veggies on the carvery was awful.

    First time we have had a meal here as there are plenty of local options for dining. We had our son's family with us so my wife & I ordered the carvery, my son and his wife ordered off the menu. I must say that this was the worst carvery I've had in a long time, meat was very dry and all the veg looked like it had been sat there ages.

    Refurb is OK and it's nice to see the pb getting a make over. I think there needs to be a little more staff training as a lot of the young guys were a little unsure of what they were doing. This will come though. I do have to say my steak was absolutely brilliant. Think the menu could be a little more exciting too. Overall I'm sure it will get better and the place is much imporved.

    Before refurb the Mallard was well known locally as the place to go for an excellent 'all day' carvery. The new menu online showed that the carvery was still offered so we booked a table for 6.30 expecting to get one. Very disappointed to be told that it is now taken off at 6.00pm. Why on earth was the decision made to do this? Make it 7.30pm. at least to give working people a chance!

    As this was the first night, I would like to say the staff were excellent, trying to do thier best. I know there were 'teathing' problems with the phone+ menu online. So I will be going back again at a later date.
