The restaurant was empty often with no staff in sight hence one of our party often was required to search the restaurant after service. The carvery was a big let down everything eat over cooked, Yorkshire’s burnt to a cinder even the carrots and sprouts were burnt. Expected much better, over priced and under delivered. Very disappointing

Christmas Menu the daughter had Turkey, me and the wife had 'blade' of beef which in fact was shin of beef stewing steak which was full of gristle,
tough and awful. I emailed the venue and had no reply.

Second visit within a month with my sister. We feel perfectly safe dining here.
Food is lovely with ample food on the plate. So full there was no room for pudding. Not complaining but would love to have had one so that I could comment on them.
Would recommend to everyone even if you feel nervous

Fantastic service, lovely food and relaxing atmosphere. We were staying in the local area and found The Beams to be the perfect place to have dinner. The children's portions were a perfect size, and the choice of food was perfect. Can't fault it!

Just opened after lockdown. Table booked for 6pm so quiet. Staff attentive. Abiding by all COVID Regs. Only one draft beer on offer but probably not enough custom to tap two or three barrels. Food excellent. An enjoyable experience.

The pub was too cold on arrival at 1pm. The real fire was not lit and the radiators were only just warm. The staff were welcoming, explained the new rules very clearly and escorted us to our reserved table.

We ordered the food and drinks together. A bottle of red wine arrived far too cold (and it was almost £20) . The other drinks were fine(3 pints Bud Light and 2 pots of tea).

Not enough cutlery or napkins were provided and it was difficult to contact staff for more. Luckily, we had some wipes.

When the food came the three orders of pizza were excellent, as was the child portion of sausage, mash and peas. Unfortunately it was a different story for the child portion of steak, chips and peas. The chips were not hot and the steak was so tough it was inedible (not having been provided with a steak knife I tried and failed to cut it with a pizza wheel !).

We ordered puddings after diner which took a long time to arrive. Sticky toffee pudding was great. Bailey's cheesecake topping was perfect but the base was too thick and too hard-could not put a spoon through it. Apple and rhubarb pie was good but not hot enough.

Overall very disappointing, especially as we were the only group in the pub. The £75.00 price tag (and this is after they knocked off the cost of the steak) seems a lot.

Not wanting to post a negative review without contacting them first, I emailed the Beams privately. That was three days ago. As I received no reply I am posting this revue.

Was lovely to arrive to happy birthday decorations on the table, it wasn’t requested so it was a nice surprise! Food was really nice, as it was the last day before lockdown they couldn’t provide the full menu but that’s perfectly understandable in the circumstances. Well done guys, we are all looking forward to seeing you again as soon as Mr Johnson allows!

I went for a meal with my son on Monday and was pleasantly surprised by the extensive menu. The food was excellent, service impeccable and the Covid precautions very reassuring. I have booked a table for Friday with my partner as it was so good.
Thank you for a lovely meal

My grandson had just moved into the area and we had decided to go to Sunday lunch at The Old Beams this was an excellent choice, we were shown to our table , given a menu ,we chose a Sunday carvery, we were given a ticket and a member of staff escorted us to choose our meal , so no queuing with other people the carvery was outstanding, with four meats to choose from and all the trimmings at all times we felt very safe and I would highly this venue

Yet again another awesome service with food to match.
Fully engaged staff, the only issue we had we the garlic bread that well baked, when we spoke to the server he said he would speak to the chefs. I was under the impression we may have had this removed off the bill, unfortunately this wasn’t the case.
Other than that the food was tops..
