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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
