The Punch Bowl Inn
I have visited a few times and as always The food was fantastic. I'm not sure if our waitress was new but sadly we did not receive the level of service we usually do. The waitress who brought our drinks and out bill was lovely but the one who took our order and brought our food was pretty unfriendly and not welcoming at all.
Lovely country pub , excellent food and service , will certainly go again
Went previously for my birthday and enjoyed it so much went back for our anniversary. The staff are all very friendly and have time to chat which was nice. I like the smaller sized room we were sat in as it is more intimate. Will certainly be going again
We came to sit outside - always a good spot - for a drink before a meal but it was too windy. Sat inside instead - noisy locals all talking at once! Ordered food and move to table - noise level was fine there! C'est la vie. Always liked the ambience in the pub.
Had three starters all of which were very good - 2 from the specials board. For mains we chose two smoked brisket burger, a fish pie and salmon. The brisket burgers were poor having been sat around and reheated leaving the burger part shrunken and dry while the smoked brisket element was definitely smoky but again it was very dry and unappetising. Accompanied by a few chips, a couple of onion rings and a bun, at £15 this was poor value for money; an option from the specials board should be 'signature dish' quality - this was not. The other two mains were enjoyed.
Shame that this experience tends to lead me to query the quality of the other Provinance Inns.
Excellent service from all of the staff.
Great food, fantastic size portions and very friendly helpful staff!
Extremely good service, attentive and professional.
Food for main course ( scallpos) were on the meagre side but all in all good value for money.
Good food, friendly staff, and lovely old world ambiance, week worth a visit.
Lovely food in great location
Wednesday night was a Steak night, which was good value as we got two steaks and a bottle of house wine foe £29.95
Beautiful food! So tasty, excellent presentation, catered for me being gluten free, fabulous service and lovely wine. Third time we have been and definitely,not the last!
Enjoyed the steak night very much. Will no doubt visit again.
Good food, reasonably priced. Welcome was friendly and we weren't rushed.
Very nice food and attentive and friendly staff. Will definitely return.
As three friends, we meet fairly frequently at the Punch Bowl where we enjoy drinks and a meal.
The food is always beautifully cooked and presented with staff being friendly and attentive; however, the recent menu change didn’t fill us with as much enthusiasm as usual. Two of us were looking for delicious salads although the food we chose was delicious.
Friendly efficient service with delicious food, and great ambiance.
My husband and I had a great evening out at The Punch Bowl last Saturday night. We were sat in a snug little corner, enjoyed each others company. The staff were all great. The food came out in a timely manner and was all piping hot. The food was not "exceptional" this time, but we still enjoyed it.
Looking forward to coming on Easter Sunday with family.
Can't believe I haven't found this pub before now - will definitely be back! Great surroundings, lovely atmosphere, friendly, helpful and efficient staff and delicious food! Thank you for a lovely evening.
On the day Sunday lunch booking. We tend to eat outside usual peak times so easily found a table at 4pm and we’re located in a great sport within a warm, friendly and atmospheric pub. Food, service and reception were exceptional. Definitely will be a stable part of our Sunday lunch circuit. Will try others within their specialist group too.
Not to our liking at all. Tables too close together and no relaxing atmosphere at all. Won't be revisiting
Very friendly welcome and the staff were very attentive in all aspects of the evening. The food was excellent along with a bottle of the house red.
There were six in our party. Three people had burgers and were very happy. the other three had the fish linguine and were disappointed. The amount of fish was minimal and the sauce thin and tasteless.
What a great pub. Worth the trip! Delicious, homey, a real warm welcoming village pub with a great wine list and prices lower than I would have expected because it is GREAT!
Excellent Steak night, great value for money and quality food. Definitely will return again and again.
Very good on all counts. It was very quiet with only one other table occupied in the dining room. However our lunch was lovely and staff very attentive and friendly. This pub is worth a visit in summer, as they have outdoor tables in the lovely garden courtyard. Good menu and good service.
We go to the punch bowl for all sorts of occasions from get togethers with friends, everyday and special occasions. Always great food and service.
Service very friendly fab food pheasant dish delish ,steaks wonderful and red wine recommendation perfect. Will be back
Great evening with friends, All the staff were spot on !
Food and service very good, however my seat was next to an extremely cold draughty window which spoiled the occasion for me. We did not request another table as our party included elderly relatives and we were there to celebrate a birthday and I did not want to disrupt everyone. However I will not accept that table again on future visits.
Love this place, always a lovely meal and the best Sticky Toffee Pudding anywhere!
Great service and staff could not have tried harder to look after you. Food was great with a varied menu.
From the moment we entered the Inn the staff were polite and attentive throughout the evening. The food was nicely presented and enjoyable and we will return again in the near future
Excellent all around, we will be back!
Pleasant surroundings, warm and cosy, attentive staff and welcoming . Like the steak nights and sunday lunches our favourite Pub right know and we have met some really nice customers to chat too . highly recommend
Lovely food and friendly service.
Would definitely go again
We have been there many times and had an enjoyable meal. This time however, the food was mediocre, very disappointing. My fresh fish was poor, and did not taste or look fresh and the vegetables were hard. The bread they served with the starter was stale. Shame.
The staff were great, very friendly and efficient.
We would go back but I do hope they can sharpen up their food.
The Punch Bowl was a real find. Yards from our overnight accomodation. The ambience was immediate, staff warm welcoming and friendly, great attention to detail but not overbearing. Menu was inviting each of our selected dishes was fantastic. Succulent fresh tasty produce cooked to perfection. Great value too. Cairan despite his football allegiances was great fun. He has taught the staff how to create a perfect Irish coffee! Would thoroughly recommend the Punch Bowl. Next time we are visiting the area we will eat here.
Always enjoy a visit to the Punchbowl, and enjoy lovely well cooked food. Made more enjoyable
by the pleasant staff ,who are always smiley and make you feel welcome. Enjoy having a chat
with the locals who seem to be a very friendly bunch, not surprising when you live in this village.
Might have to relocate here.
The best Sunday Lunch we've had in recent years. Lovely, attentive staff and a very friendly atmosphere. This is our new 'go to' restaurant. Highly recommended.
Superb meal with friends. Staff extremely helpful, friendly, diligent and fun
Our first time at The Punch Bowl was a very good experience. A very good welcome on arrival - the day was windy and rainy and our coats and umbrellas were taken from us immediately, and put safely away. The Maitre d was friendly, professional and good fun which made us feel relaxed. It was a Sunday so the usual roasts were on offer as well as other dishes, so every taste was catered for, and we all opted for traditional roast which were delicious - the starters and desserts were also delicious
