Really tasty food and friendly staff, would definitely go back again
Quite busy, so service was a little slow. However, good beer and nice atmosphere.
Excellent vegetarian Sunday roast just as good as the meat options. Cheerful service in a lovely window seat.
Fabulous local pub
Very nice atmosphere and food; little expensive but didn't mind paying it to enjoy my meal in a nicer place.
Good service and a vibrant atmosphere would return
My friend had the mushroom risotto but was just like baby food and very plain
Great atmosphere , friendly staff and couldnt fault the precautions they had in place
Very Covid aware, food great and service good. It’s also a nice space, altogether a really nice experience
Sharing plates were excellent, service attentive and good (but safely managed) ambience. Would recommend.
It was a very nice meal with a relaxed atmosphere, the only thing I would fault is where we were sat, but this can’t really be helped with the current situation of the world!
Really nice brunch menu and all of the staff were so polite and lovely.
Wasn’t as good as previous meal no pine nuts of Harris’s a this time
It was easy to book a table.The service was quick, easy and efficient. We booked our table here because the overall experience is very good. More importantly they are following the COVID-19 rules, we have both been shielding,THIS IS A SAFE ENVIRONMENT,
THANK YOU FOR CARING
Great sunny lunch/coffee at the W we scraped together some cash and the food and atmos were great as usual.
I went with 3 others and we chose 3 sharing platters. Our table was booked for 12.30pm . It seemed a long time before we got our drinks and a good 3/4 hour before our food arrived. When it was time to pay it took ages for anyone to get our bill and when they did two of the girls brought out two bills so it had been duplicated.
Otherwise we had an enjoyable time.
First time here. Very welcoming and enjoyable. Only downside was asking for the bill twice as first waiter forgot.
Very good food and service, hope to be back soon. Thank you
Just came for a drink. Well spaced pit, nice atmosphere and good beer. Service was good too.
W&F is brilliant. Love the outside tables and the atmosphere.
We sat in the far corner of the garden. No lights. If you were going for a blindfolded dining experience, fair enough, but the taste of the food was not sensational enough to make up for the loss of visual appearance. They had run out of burgers and steaks. We had a salade niçoise, which seemed to have bits of sand in it (could not tell, it was too dark), a chickpea burger (burnt bread, mushy paddy), buttermilk chicken (good, except for the bluecheese sauce that didn't really go with it) and a mixed platter (which was very nice).
There were 4 or 5 other tables in equal darkness, the rest of the garden had beautiful strings of carbon filament bulbs. Even better, you might get to sit at street level, where the tables have lights and downheaters (although that's a bit of an environmental no-no to some)
We came here for lunch on the last day of Eat Out To Help Out - my husband ordered the mixed platter, our daughter had the gnocchi and I had the flat iron steak. My steak was perfectly cooked and was huge! My husband enjoyed his platter but wished the menu had specified exactly what was included. My daughter enjoyed her meal very much. Overall, a lovely lunch out and would recommend others to eat here :)
Food was excellent. Best Roast Dinner i can remember. Amazing Stick Toffee apple pudding. Staff very attentive.
Took my daughter out for lunch. Service was excellent. Was shown to our table immediately. Drinks service was quick and efficient. Ordered our food, unfortunately they had run out of paper menus so had to use our phones to look at the menu. Choice of food is good and it arrived in good time. We both enjoyed our meal I had a coffee to follow which again was good. Couldn’t fault it and will definitely be back .
Got there at 8pm once booking a table for 8 through OpenTable to be told we had to order before we even ordered drinks as they stop serving food at 8. Food came out and had to wait 5 minutes for cutlery to come out and our sides weren't bought out until we were on our last mouthfuls. Lovely food. However, service was poor and was rude upon arrival by the owner.
Great visit but took a while to be served. I will return
Booked table at 9pm but had already stopped serving food. Did not say this on the website or opentable
The service was very slow. There were three girls serving but only one young lady was attentive and ensured the mistakes were corrected. The first wine we asked for was out of stock but the original lady did not come back to us for an alternative. We asked for a jug of water which was delivered to the wrong table and we had to ask again. The food was well prepared, however, seemed to be lacking the usual flare which is such a treat when dinning at the William and Florence. Completely understand the menu has changed for the special offer by the Government this month, but just a little disappointing. Will still frequent, but perhaps on during the special offer days.
Amazing food, best meal I have had in a while. Highly recommend
Very nice all round
Very average food, garlic bread cold with the butter unmelted, platter overpriced for what it was.
Atmosphere for drinking however would good, just not to eat.
As always a really lovely evening in the beer garden - great food and fab wine, finished of with a cocktail what more could you want :-)
From start to finish, overall impression is very good. From the way the staff met and greeted folks at the door and the handling of clinical Covid requirements (sanitation, PPE, control) to table service and food all being very good and presented well. The ambience was really nice and a good crowd of folks with relaxed attitude and friendly attentive staff. Constructive criticism: I’m only holding back 5th star because at one point we waited a little to long after the meal for coffee then after that to get the bill as for some reason we were ignored for a while despite efforts to get noticed.
Brilliant venue with great food and staff. A firm favourite.
The food was excellent very tasty, the service was good and the precautions for Vivid are excellent very very comfortable would visit again
Great experience! Everything was socially distanced and clean. Staff were friendly. Food was delicious and well priced.
We had a great night. Super friendly and attentive stuff.
We really enjoyed our meal at the Will and Flo, steak and a platter. Friendly service from the team. It's good to have a nice restaurant on our door step.
We ate inside, a couple of fans would have been good, as it was very hot and air less.
Food cooked as requested and well-presented. Limited menu but perfectly understandable at the moment. Friendly and generally attentive staff. My only concern was that I saw outdoor tables be reused several times and none were sanitised between groups, despite bottles of spray sanitiser being seen. At the moment I do feel that this should be an essential requirement after customers vacate a table.
Nicely spaced out, great menu what's not to like?! X
