First visit on a Sunday lunch date. First impressions were good, good car park, quaint pub. Inside was what you would expect, traditional pub with what looked like emphasis on food.
Not a long wait and we were seated right next to the serving bar. Order was taken and starter quickly arrived. Hot on the edges, tepid mushrooms, waterery sauce. Decided to not say anything (First date) only to be asked if I finished half way through!
Main course, one beef , one pork roast... no flavour, chewy, waterery gravy... real disappointment. Didn’t ask for a desert.
All in all? Too rushed, no quality control on the food at all. Service was fine.
Could have been a great meal, unfortunately the food was poor, and that was the main reason for going! You know it was bad when your date asks “Who on earth recommended that place?”.
Shame.

To be honest I’m not really sure why we come back here. I think it’s mainly because despite how terrible the service here is every time, the pub itself is actually a nice environment - it’s cosy near the fire and the food isn’t bad - There isn’t many places to choose from in Peterborough that are like that. The waitress on this occasion was very friendly, I have nothing bad to say about her manner, but as always they were so understaffed and the food ALWAYS takes ages to come out! Maybe it’s more to say about the kitchen staff. It was about an hour and 10 minutes from ordering to getting our food - and the place wasn’t risiculously busy. The food was nice so I can’t complain too much they just really need to work on the timing issues!!!

Very disappointed to find that fizwilliam arms had no knowledge of our booking via OpenTable. They say this is not unusual and recommend further bookings through their own website. Kindly, though very busy,they found us a table.

A warm and friendly welcome upon arrival. Shown to a table straight away and asked if we would like a drink as we were handed the menu. Service throughout the evening (we were looked after by Louise) was extremely good. The quality and presentation of the food was such that we will not hesitate to return in the near future.
