    Lovely evening with friends. Good friendly service. Food was excellent. One minor issue with the cheese fondue which was watery however tasty. We didn’t get a table check on food to see if ok so that would’ve been nice & my husband could’ve changed it. We would return however. Fairly noisy towards latter part of evening, we ate bar side but think would prefer to be seated the other side of pub next time on a proper table.

    Katsu chicken was well overdone unfortunately, meaning was very very tough! The duck ragu had a very large leg bone in it which was almost swallowed.

    Had the vegan platter and was surprised by how much flavour and ingredients were packed into this. Loads of delicious griddled veg - broccoli, artichokes, asparagus, olives. So delicious and the service was really impressive. Just would like food to be served a bit later as you have to meet and get order in early as the kitchen stops cooking around 8 to 8.30 which seems very early to me.

    We tried the William and Florence pub today for lunch. Outdoor area is very nice and has heaters, looked kite the downstairs area has lights as well. Not much parking! Service started off brilliant, quick and friendly, but got a bit slow after we had our food. Must warn you that there is a very small car park behind the pub, with room for 4 or 5 cars at the most. I drove around for ages looking for a spot. 2 of us ordered the risotto, which was very tasty and rich, although a bit Al dente for my taste . Sadly the Parmesan crisp was very tough though. Another ordered the cheese grazing board, looked great and very generous. Not much other than tartines for light eating no starters or salads. Service staff very friendly!

    Would not revisit or recommend to others . Staff friendly Booked for breakfast / brunch for 4 on a Sunday . Firstly waited 20 mins for a coffee . When it arrived one was served in a dirty cup with lipstick still visible from the previous person . Replaced with another but not served with a saucer . Size of the latter was not reflective in the price charged . Temperature of latter too hot . Milk at reaches boiling point . Waiting 50 mins for a fried breakfast and pancakes . when it finically arrived . Missing items of the breakfast . Fried eggs had hard over cooked yolks Not worth complaining as wasn’t prepared to wait another 50 minutes for a breakfast which had already run into lunch arrive . At no point did waiting staff approach to ask if everything was to our satisfaction Terrible restaurant

    Food was really good there was 11 of us most had the Steak and it was real quality. Only issue was how long it took to get served drinks had to order a round straight after one had come to our table , Staff worked hard but everytime one of our party went inside there was 5 - 6 staff just stood behind the bar chatting, we spent a reasonable amount which would of been more if the drinks service was a bit quicker, but highly recommend the food , the staff were pleasant. We will be returning

    Took a while to get drinks , it was quiet and several staff but didn’t seem that ‘on it’ - had to ask again to order and it went on… but food was lovely- menu a bit limited unless you wanted snacks / small meal and pudding choice was not great so we didn’t have any and left earlier than would have otherwise - quiet but midweek so maybe to be expected. Usually more varied menu another Covid excuse I guess but that’s wearing thin now??

    The review of the food is N/A as the kitchen was shut when I visited. The staff were very friends and helpful, the ambiance was nice until after 10pm when it got a little loud. The price is reasonable but I wish they did cocktail deals as the night was quite expensive

    We had a work lunch yesterday - party of 10. We had an outside table in the courtyard which was quietly buzzing. The service was fast and professional. All of our lunches were delicious, freshly cooked and presented beautifully, all ten of us had drinks and food within 20 minutes of sitting down. The bill worked out at approximately £16 per head including drinks which I think is reasonable as the food was excellent quality.
