We had a lunch for four on Monday 24th August. We were completely ignored after being seated. Eventually we had to get up and search out the menu and ask for some drinks. The meals were adequate but uninspired. Not even a bit of salad garnish with fish and chips. There was a hair caught up in my fish but... More

Food was absolutely delicious, even the kids pasta sauce! Really pleased we was passing and decided to pop in, I had 3 courses, which is very rare for me, but was so nice, I didn't want it to end! Not one complaint from 8 of us, 3 being children! Staff very helpful and polite! Great big garden, nice restaurant area... More

Lovely old pub with lots of indoor and outdoor seating. Great location for drivers and cyclists to base themselves for exploring the local area. Staff very welcoming and accommodating. The cosy single room is small but perfectly formed, and with good features. The included breakfast makes the tariff extremely good value - the full English is excellent. Although small, the... More

14 of us visited for Sunday lunch, and left very disappointed. The beef was so fatty it was inedible and the waitress simply brushed it off as being 'the cut of meat'. Another member of the party also found a caterpillar in her salad. Clearly it hadn't been washed very well! They eventually took the beef of the menu, but... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am greatly disappointed to read of your experience. If I may address your points, Our beef this week was 35 day aged Dedham Vale rib, as you know rib is the fattier of generally used roasting joints and although every care is taken to ensure the leanest slices make...

Visited for Sunday lunch, beef more fat than meat. Very poor quality, potatoes hard and very few vegetables. Service very slow and when we complained that we were unable to eat the meat because it was so fatty and didn't even resemble beef. The manageress just said it was the cut of meat and was vey unhelpful. Dirty tables waiting... More

My wife & I booked a table here as we were staying at the crown plaza down the road. We were shown to our table by a friendly member of staff. Our arms stuck to the sticky table, the floors were filthy & the decor was very tired. The food was very average, flies were buzzing around us all through... More

Expensive, small portions,uninteresting menu, staff not silver service (unfortunately, as they could do with the training). It is a lovely venue, very idiotic location. We had all been so disappointed this is not al a carte just small portions and not cooked to perfection so very disappointed.

We booked for a family event (Sunday lunch), so had people in our group from 5 years old to 80. Drinks ordered arrived fairly quickly and menus distributed, the problem was mainly the long time it took to progress from there - the main courses took over 2 hours to arrive, by which time the tinies had run out of...

It was a very hot day so wanted lunch somewhere outside with parasols and a pond, so went to the Peldon Rose as it has always been so nice. Very disappointed as hardly any tables had parasols even though the terrace is in the sun. Food was very nice although the presentation is not inspiring. Our main problem was the... More
