    Got there early for our reservation by 30 mins, yet were told only once we had ordered that there was no roasts left. There were only the small reduced menu left. No surprise that we did not stay, as we went on a Sunday for their usually amazing roast.

    Really enjoyed my lunchtime catch up with a friend at William and Florence. We sat outside under a heater and the ambiance was great and the staff were super helpful. The food was good, but the most important thing for me was the ambiance.

    On arrival I asked for 2 pints of coke and was only given half pints. We then had to pay for the 2 halfs and 2 pints that we had ordered. I ordered 2 cheese grazing board and was gutted there was no mixed olives or chilli jam on either. Unsure why as they didn’t inform us they had sold out.

    We had a great time. But was not happy about dogs being let into the restaurant/pub. The dog sat on its own blanket but did break free and ended with its paws on the end of our table whilst we were eating. We didn’t say anything and in hindsight maybe we should have mentioned it. I do like dogs but they do have a place. We will return

    We chose to go to the W&F because we wanted some of the meals advertised on the menu online. When we got there we found that the menu had been changed so we couldn’t have the meals we wanted. I then chose something else and was told that it wasn’t available even though it was only 6pm. My daughter couldn’t find anything vegan that appealed to her. Overall very disappointing.

    Special requests on booking ignored, then proceeded to be served the wrong bottle anyway. Clearly understaffed for such an evening. Poor menu and over priced £22 for rump steak is outrageous. Won’t be returning
