    It took 20 mins to be seen to our table which was empty anyways, then when we got there a further 20 mins until someone approached us so we didn’t eat and left. Bar service was great, would come for drinks but not for resteraunt as service was poor. Saw waitress on her phone in the toilets !!!!!!

    We use the Village quite often but on this occassion the steak was pretty poor, very chewy and tough, not befiting an £18 cost. Would not choose steak again and would suggest better quality cuts are purchased.

    Awful experience. Food was of very poor quality. Have been to this restaurant before in a big party for my birthday and it was lovely came again for my boyfriends birthday and it was terrible. All 3 of us ordered steaks, one should of been cooked very well done it was bright pink in the middle. The other two were very fatty, chewy and of poor quality. Dont know what happened since the last time we came but it ruin a birthday meal for us 👎.

    We had a lovely evening with tasty food and a great cocktails. The live music was unexpected and very welcome!! The only disappointment was some members of the group were not able to order the food that they would have liked as the restaurant had run out.

    We booked a table for six for a family celebration. The cocktails we ordered were well made and the food was very good. The table was spacious and we had a comfortable and cosy area to sit in. The waiter who served us was brilliant - very attentive, friendly, great with the children and knowledgeable about the food and drinks on offer. Thank you.

    Bar man very unfriendly; barely raised a greeting and n services no us. Went there to eat. Waited 25 minutes after being seated before making our order. Food ok but over priced. Very quiet for a Thursday night and given my experience, I’m not surprised. A real shame as it’s a lovely looking pub and has been much, much better. Will not be eating there again.

    I had the buttermilk chicken in a tasty chorizo sauce. I swopped fries for a green salad. The meal was excellent, as was the service. I've been here a few times, for various reasons and have never been disappointed.

    I've recently held a thank you drinks get together for volunteers in our church. The wait staff reserved 'the snug' for us as we were going to be a relaxed, drop in sort of gathering. That location in the pub was just perfect and allowed us to mingle together easily. Bar staff were friendly and a good selection of wine, beer and spirits met all the preferences of my group. Thank you!

    Restaurant itself was pretty good, service however was a bit slow and without an air of confidence. My wife did go for the Gluten Free option and we did ask to confirm that both the meal and fries were GF, I'm pretty sure they weren't as we had massive repercussions once we returned home later. We did have to chase the desserts too.

    First time to the Village Inn and it wasn't a disappointment. Will definitely be back. The seating could do with a little updating as it looks a bit tired in places, and the moth eaten menus could do with being replaced. The food however was outstanding and the friendliness and the charm of the staff was quite probably second to none who were exceptionally helpful, friendly, respectful and helpful and for a shy person like me, quite easy to grab their attention. Pricing I think is just about right for the quality. It may not be your typical chain carvery prices, but this isn't a chain carvery. The pricing certainly doesn't break the bank. If you want to treat yourselves, I can't think of any better place at the moment. A lovely selection of deserts too.

    Excellent customer service very professional team very friendly. I had steak and ale pie which was fantastic- excellent presentation. Lots of lean meat in the pie big portions excellent value for money! The decor is relaxing with a cosy homely feel. The bathroom is a beautiful Victorian theme with a modern twist. Excellent all rounder from family to date nights. I have visited the Village for the past 3 years and the high standards have remained the same throughout. Thank you

    We went for a Valentines meal - booked late but managed to get a table. The decor, ambience service were all good but I was completely blown away by the food. I ate from the special Valentine menu- beetroot and cocunut veloute to start, duo of duck main and poached pear for dessert. Every course was an absolute delight - there was a genius combination of flavours that I had never experienced before. I had to finish the dessert even though I was quite full - I couldn't bear to leave any. My partner (who is not very adventurous with food) had fish and chips from the main menu. This too was very good. Fish cooked to perfection with excellent triple cooked chips. To top it all, the ladies' toilets were also brilliant- clean, beautiful classic fittings and imaginatively decorated. I thoroughly recommend this place!

    It was New Year's Eve with a reduced menu. Service was slow to start as it was change over time. Our starter did came out cold but that was quickly rectified. Main meals were tasty and waitess very good with wine menu and kids requirements.

    Great service, great food, great atmosphere, but unfortunately the last two times of dining there, we had to wait quite a while for the bill, and physically had to go to the bar to pay.

    Excellent food and service although it was quiet when we went. Gluten free menu immediately ready as requested and the chef came out to speak to us after a change to dessert menu. Good value for money. Lovely decor. Car park charge refunded in Village.

    Interesting that Open Table has asked for a review as we were running late on Friday - I rang The Village to check we were ok & they had no booking & we're just waiting for a large party to arrive. So no we didn't eat there on Friday - took our business elsewhere. Shame as we enjoy The Village. Next time we will ring & not use Open table!

    Been to the Village several times since it opened and always liked the food home cooked feel, the jam jar desserts . This time the food was average, nothing special and desserts were clearly not made on site. Disappointed as I booked this for a get together with friends.

    The service was appalling. We had to seat ourselves as no one available to greet us . Sat for at least 20 minutes before drinks order being taken . The food was greasy and the chips were hard , no one came to ask how our meal was. Once our plates were taken no one asked us if we wanted another drink . Having waited over 30 minutes we went to the bar ourselves and waited in the bar queue. No one asked us if we wanted dessert, we had to stop the the waitress and ask her for the menus. The waitresses stood chatting at the bar .

    Busy pub, very loud but you'd expect that on a Friday night. Food is good pub food. The service let's them down a bit, one person in particular wasn't that attentive. We weren't asked if we wanted pudding/coffee, just had the table cleared and had to ask for the bill about 20-30 mins later. Its ok, I'll eat here again but wouldn't be a preference.

    I went with a group of adults and children. The setting is pleasant and the staff were mostly very friendly and helpful. There were, however, some problems with the food. One of the child meals was ridiculously tiny - the child was 10, but there was barely enough food for a 5 year old. The burger for another was burned. The risotto was far too salty - to their credit, the risotto was quickly replaced, and was better - but the rice was then under-cooked. The desserts were adequate, but far from exceptional - cheesecake fine, but a little bland. The parfait was adequate. If The Village wants to keep a local clientele, the food is going to have to be improved significantly.
