Lovely food. The tables are quite close together, perhaps because of its popularity to get more customers in. Staff were very attentive. The window adjacent to the bar is a bit off putting as customers at the bar and bar staff can see straight through to you - there used to be a large picture there which gave some privacy

Lovely staff, very helpful. Meal was average for this place. Starters let it down. Dry, tasteless and waste of money.
Mains were good.

Good staff but poor re heated rubbery starters, 2 of them. Quite pricey.
The main was basic stir fry, more like a bottled sauced Chinese stir fry.

The on line booking mucked up my order, changed it to 2 instead of 3, poor table, hard sears and in the pub area. Always speak to restaurant to make sure, I have mobility probs and the seats were hard and in the passage way to the back door and toilets!!

The food turned out to be very good indeed once we were given some service. When we arrived it seemed an unfriendly place and we were ignored for quite some time. It was difficult to even order a drink while we looked at the menu.

Food was really good, service was a bit slow as my partner got his drink just after we ordered and after asking a couple of times I eventually got my drink and the water for the table just before the main course. Overall experience was good, and it was an enjoyable evening.

Tasty food but such a big menu it may take a while to decide what you’re having
The waitresses were lovely however they came over to our table every 10 minutes? Either to ask whether we were ready to order (they must of done this about 5 times) then to ask if we were happy with the food which they kept on coming over? It was constant and a bit off putting, making me and my boyfriend feel rather rushed with the whole experience.

Very good food, service was lovely. However, table was uncomfortable and tight, as I had to stand every time the couple sat behind us wanted to get out or get in. Felt very compact, other than that is was outstanding food and service.

Although the food was nice we felt rushed to eat and get us out of there. No sooner had I finished my starter the main arrived. Sat down at 9pm and gone by 9.45!! And to cap it all no sooner had we left I had an email to say “sorry you didn’t make your booking “ well we did make it. Good service but don’t make into being about how many you can get through the door.

Disappointing that the Brakspears Ordinary Bitter was "off" - tasted "vinegary" a bit like the end of the barrel. The landlord apologised and offered us a different pint which was OK. He said they hadn't cleaned the pipes, but this is a bit concerning in a Brakspear pub.
The Thai meal was good, although my beef dish was slightly over cooked.

Great Thai food. One of our favourites - especially love the sharing starter and the salmon red Thai curry.
