I note that the management of the Tempest Arms have a policy of replying to reviews and take an approach of pulling the one positive from a sea of complaints as if suffering from a strange form of agnosia that leaves them blind to criticism. In light of this, let me sum things up clearly here: The Tempest Arms was... More

My parents booked a family meal here which was to be a real treat. The starter came out separately one after we had finished the other which given that it was two different breads was slightly strange but given that we were the guests, we let it slide. The main courses were lovely however one didn't show up at all.... More

Stayed here for just one night in a Junior Suite. Booked this on the internet for £120 and was pleasantly surprised to learn that on booking a table for dinner the room rate was reduced to just £70 as it was a Sunday night special offer. The room, situated in an annexe at the side of the pub, was immaculate... More

Visited there in December when we had a family get together. There was six in our party and we had a thoroughly good night. The place was jammed full which speaks for it self, December or not. The service by the staff was nothing short of outstanding, a lovely young lady looked after our table...If she said "thank you very... More

We have been to the Tempest before and enjoyed it, however our party of 9 went yesterday and it seems to have dropped its standards. I ordered thai tiger prawn curry, all the prawns were normal size, not one tiger prawn in sight! and it had no flavour at all. One dish was luke warm. Everyone was really underwhelmed with... More

Not as underwhelmed as we are! It does disappoint me somewhat that you chose to tell us of your dissatisfaction via Trip Advisor and not to our face! A sort of 'kiss and tell' review. As specially as this is your first review with Trip Advisor. I shall not comment too much on your points; I was aware of the... More

We visit the tempest quite often and never yet had a bad meal. Family meals trips with my partner with the dogs always made to feel welcome. Staff are friendly food is always great cannot complain! Devils kidneys are one too try and the pies are always good. Lots of different choices if you are vegetarian and I'm sure if... More

Thank you for making our anniversary very special. Having called for lunches in the past we always promised ourselves that we would stay over, so glad we did. Room 16 was modern, spacious, comfortable with all the special touches that make the difference. As for the food, as good as its ever been and plentiful. Every staff member we came... More

Food and restaurant staff cannot be faulted. However, double room number 9 appeared dated, not 100% clean, noisy and very uncomfortable bed that sagged in the middle. No double glazing which is needed as room overlooks noisy bins and glass disposal area and near a busy road. T.Vs on wall but no sound proofing so can hear neighbours tv as... More
