I was at the Village Grill recently with a friend. We both had the chicken piri piri. The chicken was lovely, tender and moist, followed by cheesecake.
It was a Saturday night and I expected it to be very busy and quite noisy, it was neither. Sometimes the noise level is quite high, depending on which football team is playing on the big screens. I have often been in Starbucks with friends and it has been difficult to hear each other speak.
But, Saturday was good, we both enjoyed ourselves. Lovely ambience and good service.

I would recommend this restaurant/hotel however I wouldn't recommend booking through "opentable" as the restaurant didn't know we were coming and as a table of 8 luckily the staff rallied around and "fitted us in" which wasn't the best but apparently "open table" quite often don't relay the bookings adequately.

Very, very disappointing experience. The restaurant is dominated by huge TV screens broadcasting football and is a very noisy environment. One of our meals was acceptable, the other, supposedly a superfood salad, consisted principally of elderly uncooked broccoli florets. In fairness the cost of the meal was refunded by Village. Signs around the hotel suggest that it has a Italian Restaurant but this apparently closed some time ago. Value for money is dire: £30 to eat a fillet steak in that environment? Will never stay at a Village Hotel again.

I expected the ambience to be a little special for Christmas Eve. Although the food was quite good, the main course wasn't exactly piping hot. Service was really poor. The gesture of a round of free drinks, while appreciated, did not compensate for a lacklustre evening meal and was not taken up in full. Overall, I was disappointed, both for myself but especially for my guest.

Food was poor quality my girls couldn’t even eat their burger. We waited so long to be asked if we wanted a dessert we gave up.
Breakfast next morning was cold, plates were cold as was the coffee. We won’t be booking food again

We did not get served for over an hour
We booked for 7.45. No one came to our table until 8.50
Also the bar staff ignored us as we stood there waiting to get served when other customers came in after us who were served before us!

Also the room rate we paid for 1 night £141!! Did not include breakfast!

Feel as though we have really been mistreated!

we would definitely eat and drink there again , it was very busy on the evening we were there , the only thing that was a slight disappointment was _ when we ordered the sweet , it must have been overlooked ,and we had to ask for it again, but apart from that everything else was great !! thanks.

We had a very pleasant evening at The Village Hotel where my guests were staying overnight. I joined them for dinner and the service and food was excellent. I would prefer not to have a massive TV screen staring at me with a match in full flow but I know most people probably love that on a Fridat evening. However we were able to have a civilised conversation which was the reason for the meal as I do not see the very often,

The Pub & Grill does not give a good dining experience. It is far too noisy. We prefer to enjoy our food in a peaceful atmosphere where we can enjoy each others company without having to shout over the other people enjoying the sport on the TV and other loud talking.

Food was nice, service a little slow. We were celebrating a birthday and we received a celebration chocolate plate at the end which was lovely.

I booked a table weeks in advance and clarified on my booking that it was a birthday meal, when we arrived the staff seemed like they had no idea about my booking and there was no mention of a birthday by staff, I didn’t expect much just maybe a candle on the table or for the staff to ask if we wanted to make any birthday celebration arrangements, but no. We then asked if we could sit on a table that was labelled reserved as i thought as i had booked in advance one of those tables was for us and we were declined, staff also never explained whether there was any special offers on. I first ordered drinks and our food, the staff member forgot one of the drinks which was an honest mistake but my receipt was left on show with my card details on. The food was better than satisfactory but overall the service was appalling, not once did a staff member come over and ask if our food was okay. Later that night a couple came in and it was noticeable that they had not booked a table, but they were allowed to sit on the reserved tables, staff then treated them completely differently by standing next to the table to take orders for drink and food and explained how there was an offer on , we didn’t receive any service like that we were forced to wait in line at the bar to order our food and drinks and we wasn't aware of the specials either. Finally later on in the night we asked a member of staff if we could now have our dessert that we had ordered when we arrived, it was a fruit salad. After agreeing to get the fruit I observed him walk off in the direction to what i thought was the kitchen, literally seconds i walked in the same direction to go to the toilets and i witnessed the same member of staff having a flirtatious conversation with the receptionist of the hotel, he had never went to the kitchen and asked about the fruit salad. We then asked another member of staff that we had asked about the fruit salad but he explained how that request had never been made.

Cramming both the pub and restaurant together created a crammed noisy and intrusive environment.
Service was very slow and our table wasn’t ready for the time of arrival. We had a squeeze between other diners to access the carvery which is a struggle when carrying plates. The football commentary was on so loud we couldn’t have a conversation - when requesting for this to be turned down the waitress replied with “ I don’t like working her either” ! Not what you would expect in terms of problem resolution! We were loyal diners at village Wirral but never again.

Was shocked to find that a refurbishment has taken place and its now more like a sports bar and the cosy pub side has now disappeared. Seriously no need for the amount of TVs in one small space! That aside, the staff couldn't have been any friendlier, polite and professional throughout the night. This would be the only reason I would return.

Great food and great service. Very family friendly. Wouldn’t recommend for people looking for quiet relaxing meal! Bit of a sports bar theme going on which is great for us as a family as love sports and anywhere with a bit of a buzz about it. Incredible prices too 👍🏻

Preferred the older pub even though the new bar/grill looks amazing. Booked at table for mother in laws 70th Birthday and was disappointed to say the least. The pub was very busy and too loud as we could not even hold a conversation. The service we received was very could and eventually we were moved tables as the table we were sat at was not suitable. Once moved we were happy until the music was turned up and we were sat directly underneath it unfortunately. The food was average and both food and drinks were quite expensive for what we had. Would not visit again as it seems to be more of a sports bar & drinking place rather than a dining place for a special Birthday. To be fair I thought I was booking the old pub and did not realise it had changed. If I had realised I would not of booked it.

Food, service both great. Its just too noisy to enjoy s meal and catch up with friends. Its a brilliant sports bar but it's a shame that there isn't a separate quieter place to eat. I used to go regularly with family for Sunday lunch, but won't be doing that in the future as we wouldn't be able to hear ourselves speak. I live the village and recommend to everyone. But this latest upgrade isn't one of their best....it just needs a quieter option for eating, afternoon teas etc

We were on the love the weekend deal so had a 2 course meal with fizz included. The food portions were huge considering it is a prepaid for meal so after the starter we did struggle to eat more than half of the dinner, but better that than walk out hungry. The service was very slow due to the volume of people dining and we had finished our meal and had to ask again for the fizz that we were meant to have with our meal as it had still not been brought over.
Also now the pub and restaurant have merged into one after being sperate during our last visit, we found the noise level way too much when trying to have a nice meal. You have football and rugby on the TVs and numerous people shouting and singing as well as a lot of people in for just drinks so it does take away now from the dining experience.

I was surprised to find that my credit card was required to be locked away prior to receiving my order, I was also surprised when the member of staff was shocked that I wanted to open a tab and wasn't staying in the hotel even though I am a member of the Village. Overall the meal was good and the service was good, I was just disappointed with the level of trust aimed at the paying customer.

The food was great, we all had the carvery because we thought this was the only option, weren't brought any menus or told we could order off the menu, I didn't mind as love a good Sunday roast, but my hubby had some meat and a Yorkshire pudding, so value for money not had there. Would recommend although can be a tad noisy so can't have a conversation if your with a bigger party of people.

Great staff, especially Jason Whittingham, what a star!
There was a game on when we were there, is a bit odd people peering over your head to whatch it but I guess if you position yourself better then this wont happen, we had reserved a table and it would seem these tables are allocated between the TV and a seating area so this maybe needs thought out a bit better. Can't fault the food, prefer it on a proper plate but that's just down to personal taste.
Breakfast was ok, would be nice to have a choice of egg's, but the rest was fine.
The staff and the company you are with make it though, so all in all great!

Very good value for money especially with membership discount. Little disorganised, but it was the first carvery in new restaurant so only to be expected. Staff friendly. Especially the chef. Meat excellent quality. Extra choice of hot pudding would have been a bonus. House wine expensive.
