We booked a table for 7:15, we realised it was quite busy, but then had to wait one hour before the starters were served. The service was good, the staff really friendly and the food was beautiful.
Our table was not set out when we were shown through to the dining room and had to be hastily rearranged whilst we stood there.The choice of starters wasn’t very good and in fact for me a coeliac there was only one. We decided not to bother with starters as the choice was so poor. I asked if gluten free bread was available and was told yes it was but it never arrived.
second visit was as good as the first.very good service and as usual very good food.we will be returning as will our friends for whom it was a first visit.
great meal excellent surroundings service could not fault
had the early bird was great value will visit again
Amazing food, venue and service! We would definitely go again and bring our parents.
The staff were very friendly, always checking everything was o.k., food was excellent could not fault our visit
We love the Punchbowl..brought friends and it didn’t disappoint!One observation is, however...we would like to have eaten outside as it was a lovely day.But the wooden tables had benches and we are all in our sixties and find it uncomfortable with no back rests.The small tables and chairs were adequate for snacks but not meals for 4.So, better outside seating would be great!
The guy who served us really made this pub. Outside is beautiful but inside really needs some work on it ie knocked paint work. Supervisor didnt say hello to us once. If the young guy on front of house wasnt there it woukdnt of been a revisit he defaintly needs a pay rise. Great for a outside drinks in the sun nice food but not in a rush to go back for food.
Having been to the PB on many occasions I was disappointed with the food and whilst the complaint was dealt with satisfactorily in the end and the staff were pleasant and friendly, there was a long wait between ordering dessert and being served and I got the feeling that the Pub/restaurant was poorly managed.
Booked for the Wednesday Steak night offer. Paid £3 extra for an excellent Sicilian red wine, Nero D'Avolo.
which was an excellent accompaniment to the superb medium rare steaks. Friendly smiling service .
Will definitely be going back to try the a la carte menu.
Yes, good food well served and great value for their stake night
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!
