If something is worth doing it’s worth doing right, is our philosophy. Whether it’s our classic fish and chips or the more modern duck salad, blue cheese & poached pear, the emphasis is on taste. Head Chef Ian has known Ben for over 15 years and jealously guards his kitchen’s high standards. We have a good selection of vegetarian dishes, dairy-free dishes and we are nearly 100% gluten-free, whether it’s our lighter lunch menu, the A La Carte, buffet and canapes menus, and not forgetting the kids' menu. The Sunday lunch roast, last but by no means least, a choice of 3 roasts with all the trimmings, sums us up really.

Pleasant and helpful staff, taking drinks and food orders efficiently. Food of good quality, enjoyed our stay. Food and drinks were a bit on the high side but as a one off visit, perfectly acceptable

We certainly wouldn’t go back. I had invited out two friends for their anniversary and also my partner, who has severe Dementia. We chose to eat on the terrace as it was a warm afternoon. We ordered drinks but when they arrived, after placing two drinks down, the waitress tripped and the remaining drinks shot off the tray, drenching myself, from hair downwards to trousers. My face was dripping ! The drinks also drenched my partner with Dementia who was sat right next to me. She was extremely shocked and distressed by what had happened. There was also glass all around our feet. We changed table and I asked to speak to the manager. Now this is where my complaint lies. The young waitress tripped and it was an accident. It was not her fault.
The manager however, although she apologised, pointed to the uneven slabs on the terrace and stated how dreadful they are and that they are soon going to be replaced. She even repeated this excuse again after I told her of my partner’s condition and also held out my blouse which was wet through. The manager said that they would pay for the first round of drinks (the two spilled drinks were replaced). We sat wet throughout dinner and on top of this the service was exceptionally slow. We asked for extra gravy as the roast dinners were quite dry. However, all of us had virtually finished our meals before the gravy was brought out. The manager never returned to ask if we were ok and no further discount was offered. The prices at the Spring Inn are expensive, but for an anniversary treat we thought it would be a nice place to go. Our treatment on Sunday however was definitely not worth the price tag. Never again.

A pretentious pub for people with too much money and little taste. Food very average in quality and very overpriced. Cost of drinks amazing. Service very poor.
Potentally a nice location.

Overall an enjoyable evening with lovely food and ambiance. The only criticism I would say is that we seemed to be forgotten about in terms of service as we were the only ones with a table upstairs. Other than that a nice evening all round.

Delicious food. Couple of things to improve the experience were that the children’s pasta pomodoro was the size of an adult dish so my husband had to eat what my toddler couldn’t manage and they didn’t have any children’s cutlery. Some of the staff who served us looked like they didn’t want to be there. Service with a smile would have been lovely.

The place and food was excellent and the service was good until out main course and our empty plates were not taken away at all and nor did anyone come to ask us if we wanted puddings… apart from that it was good but this would not make me rush back.

Loved Spring Inn b4 covid, hadn't been since then. Food was great but sadly it was let down by the service. Waited 20 minutes before I had to go to the bar to ask if they could come take our drink order and even then was a wait. It was 6pm mid week and not busy. We wanted a second round of drinks during our meal but couldn't attract anyone's attention so they missed out on the money they could have made from those. The food was great and we had such a fun time catching up if only we had the service and drinks to match.

Roast dinners aren’t not as good as they used to be , it was no different to what I can cook & im no chef
Roast potatoes used to be fluffy inside & crispy on the outside, gravy also used to be something special, meal was perfectly eatable just didn’t have all the fuller flavours as before.
