    After 2 weeks away we both wanted a Sunday roast and was not disappointed . Everything was delicious and the side of cauliflower cheese was perfect . Only problem was we were both too full for a dessert 🤦🏼‍♀️🥰

    Another great meal in the Unthank Arms. Staff are lovely, food is always excellent with a specials board which changes regularly and being a pub rather than a restaurant the atmosphere is always good.

    Food quality and service was worse than our previous visits- long waits between courses, staff forgetting to bring menus, no active checking on more drinks etc. it was a busy day but service seemed to lack a structure to ensure everyone was looked after

    Service and staff great as always. I know the pasta and wine was only £10 but the “carbonara” really was far from that. It was plain pasta with no taste with the odd piece of bacon. Shame as I have had some nice pasta dishes previously

    We were a bit apprehensive when we approached the pub as it was a little out of the way and looked quiet. We couldn’t have been more wrong, what a lovely old style local pub when we got inside. Lovely staff , absolutely delicious Sunday lunch. Excellent service with a smile. Unfortunately we couldn’t fit in a sweet as we were so full. We will definitely return with our daughter who is at uni. Great place 100% recommend.
