    The waitress who met my party and served our table was obviously very comfortable and professional in her job. Made us feel very welcome and gave us time to decide our orders. The food was good and served promptly. Overall a great sunday lunsh experience.

    Plenty of menu choice. The three of us chose different meals and we all said they were very good, as was the service. Staff were polite and good rumoured. I had a pint of Wainwright beer which I thought should have been better looked after. Overall it was a pleasant meal.

    Ordered a BLT toast was slightly burned and bacon had been pre cooked and no mayonnaise. Disappointing as I love the Trout. Come on even I could produce a better sandwich than the one i got.

    The service was great. We were initially in the bar area, which was warm & noisy, we requested a move and once a table became available we were moved Into the dining room which was cooler and quiet. After ordering the food it was a bit slow coming. However once it came I could not complain it was lovely. It was Sunday lunch, the vegetarian nut loaf was delicious. No complaints, enjoyed the evening.

    I love the trout.. it’s comfortable and clean and has lovely staff. The kind of place that people want to return to. The prices have risen a lot in the last 12 months which has made it more of a treat rather than a weekly lunch. I chose a turkey sandwich yesterday with no cranberry. It was a nice sandwich but there was very little turkey inside. I could have complained and they would have changed it. But I shouldn’t need to. In short, they need to make sure that the higher prices are still giving good value to loyal customers. Please bring back coronation chicken too as the sandwiches are quite boring. We will returning soon, maybe an overnight stay, so I hope that this review is read and taken on board!

    On entering the Trout I’m always impressed by the cleanliness of all areas, the staff give a warm welcome show you to your table and take the drinks order. The menu has a wide selection of food and once ordered it’s not long before the well presented food arrives tastes delicious, the cheese cake is like an art form and tastes as good as it looks.
