    A couple of us had the halibut from the specials menu. Delicious. Others had fish and chips which they all really enjoyed too. Great service too.

    6 of us went for lunch on Wednesday 2 had steaks, 2 had burgers 1 had Gammon and i had the Chicken supreme, all remarked food was very good and my chicken was moist and the butter bean cassoulet was full of flavour, would fully recommend the dish. The service was good and helpful, but it was quiet a wait for the food to arrive.

    We had arrived at our accommodation late in the day on my husband's birthday. Searching for a local pub that was open and serving food, The Roebuck was our only option. What a mistake!! The poor girl running the pub that evening tried her best but couldn't hope to provide us with a good experience as she was battling with many factors against her. Her main problem was dealing with the crowd of rude and noisy men crowding the bar, shouting, swearing, challenging each other to strength contests and breaking glasses. The pub was freezing cold - so cold that I wore my coat throughout the meal. The food was late in being served. She did apologise but gave the reason as being that the chef was struggling. Not sure why as I think there were only 2 other diners there. When they left, they said they would never go there again. The food was lukewarm and badly cooked and very bad value for money. We would have tried to negotiate a deal on the bill but discovered that our son had phoned through and had already paid for our meal! We have suggested to the owners of the accommodation where we stayed that they remove any reference to The Roebuck from the information they leave for the guests. We will certainly never visit the pub again!

    You always know it’s a great place to eat if you’re spoilt for choice with possibilities from the menu! Food was really tasty, good size portion and great value.

    Lovely village pub with a warm welcome. Plenty of easy parking. Menu was varied and food well-presented and very tasty. Cosy, relaxed ambience. Staff attentive and pleasant.

    Menu choices missing and only told after order was taken. Service wasn’t as good as it has been on the weekends during the day. Sadly wasn’t very impressed as I have been before and a little embarrassing as it was the first time I had taken my friend there and recommended.

    Had the roast beef and my wife had the roast lamb - both completely inedible. The meat wasn't overcooked but it was so chewy and sinewy it was completely inedible. My wife had a salad as a starter and it was served without any dressing. Ordered some red wine to go with our roast, took an age to arrive, when it did we were served white instead, by the time that mistake had been corrected we had given up trying to chew our meat and called it a day.

    Nice and friendly staff. Nut roast was barely cooked. Very expensive Mother’s Day menu. It was so loud in the dining room we couldn’t hear each other.
