    We had a lovely evening and the food was fantastic. A little pricey for particular mains but understandable when you receive the quality we did! Just yum! Only downside was a long wait after ordering our desserts and had to prompt staff - and then waited another 10 minutes so assume our order got lost. However, great pub, great ambience and great food! We’ll be back! 😊

    Superb Sunday lunch at the Pinkneys Arms. It’s the only place I can trust to do a Sunday roast as good as we do at home! The beef was delicious, and the apple & fig crumble was wonderful - I need the recipe!! 😁 Thank you to the team for the exceptional service and laid back vibe. High recommended.

    Restaurant has taken over from pub since my last visit many years ago and us clearly a successful and popular place to enjoy a relaxed meal. Wine was a bit expensive but starter octopus and main courses venison and mushroom risotto were excellent. Timely and discreet service too.

    Dined on a thursday evening. Booked. table for two. Service at table a little slow. Very polite and friendly staff. I thought the food ok, but nothing special. overpriced for the small portions. Nice pub for a drink, but I don't think I will be eating there again.

    A cosy olde-worlde english pub with a high standard of service and quality food. Welcome, warm and snug dining experience with friendly and attentive staff who know their business and looked after us well. A limited menu - which is a good thing as each dish is considered and there is a pleasant variety of choice. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves immensely, sat in cosy a little nook for our "date night". We will be returning.

    I was a little disappointed with how small the starter and main was. I expected my starter to be warm but was cold. Main could have had 4 lamb cutlets than 3 and more potato. Still felt really hungry so had the autumn crumble which was really tasty and proper comfort food

    £20 for roast beef dinner that comprised one small slice of beef that had been beautifully cooked to medium rare. Yesterdays performance was the straw that broke the camels back - 3 visits and first visit was perfect, 2nd visit we waited literally 90 minutes for food and yesterday a single slice of beef for £20. We will not return which is sad because fairly local, quality of food good and ambience and decor great but they are clearly too busy to provide consistent service.

    Service was extremely slow despite enough staff around. Clearly they were more interested in chatting with their mates/ other colleagues than serving guest. We waited along time for food and when we asked about it no one came back to inform us. When the food eventually arrived they had messed up one of the pizzas, no apologies or explanations. I was given the correct one afterwards but still no apology etc. No one check back on us and we had to get someone’s attention to order another round of drinks. We asked for the bill and waited a nearly a half hour to pay because they were all too busy having a little gossip session with their mates/colleagues and kept ignoring us when we tried to get their attention to pay. It wasn’t the experiencing I was expecting! They need to get rid of some of the staff or do something because it was a dreadful time.

    Cold roast had to be sent back for all 4 of us. Next roast came out and the potatoes were hard and not crispy at all because they had clearly just cooked them after our complaint. Then we all ordered the crumble and that was cold in the middle and the fruit was hard where it hadn't been cooked long enough. Overall very disappointing.

    We go to The Pinkneys often for drinks and occasionally for food. In this occasion the entire experience was poor. The service was terrible, our order was forgotten, when I eventually chased it it was rushed out and the order was wrong. The main course Prawn linguine was tiny and only had 3 prawns in it, for £23. The service was not attentive at all and it seemed like the entire staff was preoccupied. A real shame as we usually enjoy visiting this pub.

    Only ran a small bbq & pizza menu, which we were not made aware of when booking. No starters or snacks or desserts on offer - just a box of crisps at the bar (and this was on the bank holiday) Slow to moderate service overall, but still very friendly. The burger itself was amazing - so that's your saving grace

    We have booked a standard table and when arrived we were told no tables available and all tables were outside and order just to be ordered at the bar. I told the manager why app allowed me to book and he said app (opentable) never work. We didn’t have dinner.
