Must have been the wettest Saturday night ever but the service and the food was still excellent. Quiet as the weather was so rubbish but the staff were friendly and happy and the food was delicious. Will be back again.

Food was very nice and service staff were very friendly when we could actually get hold of someone. We had to keep going to find someone in order to place drink, food and dessert order and to also get the bill. No one came over to check if our food was OK or to collect our plates. I understand these are busy times but even one visit would have been appreciated.

My chips tasted of some sort of cleaning liquid. It was very strong. I complained to a member of staff and barely received an apology. It is a shame as my partners food was great. I just thought my complaint would have been listened to rather than shrugged off like it was. He said he would pass it on to the chef but that was it.

Apologies but we had ordered sufficient to cover the demand however when our delivery arrived on the Wednesday we were quite a few barrels short from the brewery which unfortunately were not received till the Saturday, apologies again but this was out of our control

Lots of people were being turned away when there was many empty tables? They said reserved but does that mean they are only allocated once per day?
On the plus side we did not feel pressured to leave which we had feared.
Waiter managed well and seemed to be alone taking orders but waitresses were polite and professional

Many thanks for your review, I will pass your comments on to the staff and look forward to seeing you again :) With regards to turning customers away even though we have reserve tables we will only accept the number of diners we know we can accommodate by the number of staff and chefs working on the day and also to allow the staff time to clean and sanitise the tables between each booking ;)

We had a lovely Sunday lunch, service was quick and friendly staff. The food was delicious as always. Great pub for families. My only gripe is that people were smoking on surrounding tables, albeit outdoor (under gazebo) dining it still isn't pleasant for non smokers and children, a smoking area away from diners should be set up really

Lovely meal! First time visiting a pub after lockdown and met with my partners friends and two little boys. We were made to feel very welcome and had a lovely meal. I had to ring up at the time of my booking as we were stuck in traffic- the staff were fab and put our table back 15 mins! I used to come here as a child as my Grandparents owned a caravan on Walshes but haven’t been for years! Thank you for a lovely experience. Definitely will be back!

We arrived early and it was nice and quiet. We did find we waited a bit to have our plates cleared, and in the end we had to attract attention and ask for the bill as nobody was standing outside to help us. The food was good and we will definitely be back again.

Lovely food as usual. It was very busy though, the table next to us were extremely loud and boisterous (understandable being the first weekend after lockdown!) but it made conversation impossible and they were also smoking so being under canvass - smoke came across whilst we were eating.

Singled out because we were young with children and told we had to go in and pay after being told we were on a tab and everyone else in the pub were on a tab very embarrassing. Waited 45 minutes for drinks even the rest of our party came later and were served before us never felt so uncomfortable in a pub before we had to leave won’t be returning. Servers are very rude.

The Old Beams
Responded on 19 April 2021

Firstly may I apologise for your experience, this is very unusual and I will be looking into your comments. I can assure you that we are very family orientated so it would most definitely not have been our intention to make you feel singled out. With regards to paying your tab, that would have depended on your server as not all staff have access to the tills and card machines therefore you may have been asked to go inside to pay your final bill. I apologise if this was an inconvenience to you.

Lovely pub,
Food and drinks were amazing. The waitresses were friendly and helpful however we did have to ask for another drink 3 times to 3 different people before we had to just pay and leave.

We would go again as it is beautiful place with lovely service and we understand things are hard for barstaff right now

The staff worked extremely hard and was always on hand if we needed anything.
The only thing that was slightly annoying was a group of young girls on their phones playing music and singing/screaming quite loudly i think staff should of asked them to turn the music off.

Food was absolutely beautiful will be definitely booking again, maybe just bring my blanket next time.

A big thank you too all the staff x

even due to restrictions it felt very comfortable and almost normal thanks to the staff was a very good experience after being locked down for so long. Great menu. Good value. In fact enjoyed it so much we are going again on 19th April. Cant wait for the music to start there. Its a lovely pub and the menu is always good.

First day open after lockdown, pub set up really good.
It was very cold sitting outside but obviously you have no control over the weather, maybe should get some more heaters ???
Food was a bit over cooked and the potatoes in the curry were undercooked.
The staff were absolutely lovely.
Would definitely return.

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
