We had a lovely meal with you. But I felt your Covid safe restriction were extremely relaxed I appreciate that things have opened up. We were the only guests with masks wasn’t asked to participate with track and trace. And a young waitress lend right over my 78 year old mum to remove a wine glass without asking if that was ok. The staff were friendly and the food was gorgeous

We had booked to sit outside but on the hottest day of the year on arrival we were asked if we would prefer to sit inside as the outside marquee was like a greenhouse. We accepted ad it was heaven in the air conditioning. staff were super friendly, attentive & chatty.

Service was good when we arrived, by pudding time it was hard to get the attention of the waitress as they were run off their feet. Just needed a couple more staff. The roast platter was fantastic !!

Didn’t like the landlord walking around in shorts with his little dog following him around the restaurant
It was out of order, dog in a restaurant
This is a new landlord, lots of people I know have stopped going , the staff were all too young and we had difficulties getting there attention and actually having to ady them to order, I was very disappointed as was my partner

Really good variety on the menu so there's something for whatever mood you're in.

Starter was nice (Squid) and main was okay but I wouldn't say it was particular enjoyable (ham, egg and chips).

Order a coffee which arrived cold but that was rectified with a new coffee.

We were advised on paying that if we had mentioned earlier that we were celebrating a birthday, then we would have got a free cocktail. This was quite frustrating, so perhaps would have been better to mention as we were ordering.

Great night - Martin Bell performing always great atmosphere. Service was excellent as usual. Normally good food but I had the salmon and prawn skewers which I have had on previous occasions and on this occasion very dry. Hopefully a one off but everyone else really enjoyed their food.
