Great friendly staff, good food, warm atmosphere all round lovely experience
Sunday Roasts were excellent despite a tough piece of pork on my own plate but that was offset by a discount off my bill and the fantastic almond treakle tart! The roaring fire made us a little too warm whilst eating but overall highly recommended this pub.
We had a great night!
It was the only place we could find a last minute table for 6 and weren’t expecting much - just expecting regular pub grub.
But we were pleasantly surprised by friendly service, fabulous food and good ambiance! Thank you! We’re so glad we came!
Nice neighbourhood pub. Very friendly staff....
Excellent meal, prompt service, mussels were really good.
Lovely food and quite busy so more atmosphere than a lot of places at the moment, only negative is if you are sat round the corner the church pew style seating is quite uncomfortable after a while so if you can get a table in the main bar its a bit more comfy
Have always loved the Unthank. Great food and friendly service. Wishing them well in such difficult times...
Loved the lunch club offer which means I will definitely be back soon
Booked a table for my wife and I and our daughter and 3 grandchildren. Asked for large table so that we could maintain social distancing. Table as requested. Staff were excellent and every effort was made to adhere to social distancing rules - they were masked and we had sanitiser available when required. The Sunday lunch meal was very good and everyone left very satisfied!
Great service and atmosphere. Booking process very easy and for the first time in ages the whole experience felt normal.
Lovely staff , great food , lovely and quiet . Not the usual ambience that this pub usually has as we were first ones in after they opened at 12. Will be going back !
A really enjoyable evening in a very well managed traditional pub. Will definitely be back.
Good Sunday lunch. Service was 1st class. Definitely worth a visit.
Lovely staff ,tasty food
Quite because of Covid rules
But will return !
Extremely welcoming pub, serving good food and a great selection of beers abs wine.
As good as ever!! Staff attentive, covid rules in place but not overbearing.
Service was efficient and friendly. We sat outside with appropriately distanced tables. I didn’t love my food (beef Sunday roast). The meat was quite fatty and would have preferred it to be a bit rarer. My stepdad (68 and a grumpy Yorkshireman) absolutely loved his pork roast though, and he’s very picky in a way that’s hard to keep on top of, so my opinion of the food is just down to my personal taste.
Lovely pub, very spacious & dog friendly! Food was good but veggie roast a bit bland and Yorkshire puds quite hard. Dessert was fab and beautifully presented.
Always great food with good service. Lovely to sit outside as well.
Food is great.. lush pub grub. Roast dinners are amazing.
Excellent pub with great food and a nice beer garden
Good food in a quiet sunny garden with polite staff and sensible coved measures
Very pleased with the service and the Unthank Arms’ approach to dealing with the impact of COVID19.
Great menu - good vegan options as well. Really nice garden that we ate in. The staff were really attentive and friendly. Will definitely come back.
Nice gourmet pub food. Excellent service. Food was great. Only minor complaint was the Menu didn't bowl me over with meat-based options. Went for the spatchcock poussin which tasted great with the salad but not really very filing.
On the other hand, the wife loved her vegan burger which is quite an accolade.
Would definitely go again.
Back street pub. Quite basic inside. Food average. Service was good as was covid measures taken.
The waitress who served us was very helpful and friendly. The food was great. Will be coming back!
Good food with a traditional pub atmosphere, friendly staff too.
Fabulous service and absolutely delicious food. Really good value. The prawns were amazing!
I have been to the Unthank Arms many times in the past and have always been happy with what I’ve had. Unfortunately this time the poussin I had was overcooked and very dry. I ate it although didn’t enjoy it. My husband had the burger, which was very good. I was asked when the plates were taken if everything was okay and I said that it was very dry but nothing was done about it. I have recommended the Unthank to friends many times as it has been good before but not sure I would now.
Good pub food. Owners daughter very pleasant. Other two waiting staff could have smiled a bit, but other than that The Unthank always delivers.
Well managed but best of all, lovely and quiet. V civilised. Great service. Food excellent & prompt. Love it upstairs.
This was our second visit to the Unthank Arms in a week to have another well presented, lovely meal served by very pleasant staff in a Covid safe environment
Great time, great food - great atmosphere as ever. Only a couple of things - social distancing was great until staff sat a larger party far too close to us. It had been busy when they had laid the table for them, and we saw how close the table was - but when the part arrived, it was far less busy and they could have been moved somewhere better. It didn't impact our afternoon, but have bothered other people.
Anyway - we had a fantastic Sunday lunch!
Lovely Sunday Roast very good Will definatley go again
Four of us for dinner Saturday night, all meals were excellent - tuna, fish and chips and spicy been burger. Would recommend. PS Covid safe!
Lovely atmosphere, great service, great food . Good value
Great food. Nice building and informal atmosphere.
Noisy room not because of the clientele or background music but because the room was echoey.
Had run out of Adnams Ghostship on draft.
Very nice meal. Quiet and felt well organised (Covid).
Good value for money with Eat out to help out. Tuna steaks disappointing as overcooked. Staff friendly but service a little slow particularly on arrival
