Booked online, and had email confirmation. Unfortunately, on arrival with friends, the staff could find no trace of my booking in their book - potentially VERY embarrassing. I had forwarded the email to a friend who was present, who confirmed the booking had been made.

So ok, I know it was a Saturday night and very busy, but meal not up to usual standard. Asked for medium steak but it was quite overdone, mushrooms the same. None of the normally lovely onion rings and hardly any chips that were a bit undercooked. Service good though!

Great local with consistently high standards. If you want posh then this isn’t your place but if you want good gastro pub grub then it most definitely is. Lovely friendly atmosphere.

The restaurant staff were really helpful especially as they hadn’t received my booking from open table but still found us a table. The main meals looked good but as a vegetarian I was very disappointed as the meal was tiny and bit much choice.

We came here last year whilst on holiday and thought we would return again as the food was delicious! It is a lovely place to come and eat and the ease of booking a table online takes the hassle out of hoping there will be a table available when you arrive. The staff are friendly and offer fantastic customer service. The food was was well presented and plentiful! I would suggest not having a big lunch before coming here for an evening meal!

Recommended by a friend for good value for the money. We booked a table for Sunday lunch and made our way to Tricky's. The serving staff are young and full of energy and very well mannered and efficient. When our meal came it was a proper beef sunday lunch, served with an enormous yorkshire pudding and a sauce bowl of gravy. It was really tasty. Dessert was a slice of cake which came with cornish cream and ice cream. We shared it and struggled, that's how generous the portion size was. Just as an aside, it was full of locals, enjoying their time together.

Booked table online & all reserved for us on arriving, starter choice could be expanded & a bit pricey. Main meals were tasty & plentifull, good service, no room for sweets. Good honest food which is all most people want with reasonable costs.

I have been to Trickys before and enjoyed the baguettes on this occasion I ordered Thai green veg curry it was just a mix of over cooked veg that looked like the left overs from Sunday lunch with some strong curry powder not good at all

Booked a table for a leaving lunch for work colleague so quite tight for time.
The staff were exceptional as we also had a few dietary requirements, nothing was too much trouble they spoke to the chief regarding our meals and gave choices for the dietary requirements.
Pre-ordered lunch as we were in our lunch break, welcomed and shown to our table and asked if we were ready for our lunch and served almost immediately.
Lunch was perfect and enjoyed by all.
Thank You.
