Good but with a few little tweeks, could be GREAT!

A friend and I try to meet for lunch twice a month to try different dining experiences. I have been in the food industry for many years and like to keep abreast of whats happening outside of my own kitchen. We have enjoyed many lunches out at some diverse locations.

Visiting this restaurant for the second time on a Sunday we anticipated a repeated good experience, though we enjoyed very nice starter from the Sunday lunch menu the remainder of the meal was highly disappointing. We ordered 3 sirloin roast main courses, having been told they would be served pink they arrived over cooked, uneven in size and in one... More

My husband and i had an excellent dinner here whilst on holiday in the area. The food was interesting, well cooked and nicely presented and we were particularly impressed by the young staff who were friendly and knowledgeable. Good ambience and it was great to find a restaurant where the tables weren't packed together.

We use to eat here before the new owners took it on and always enjoyed it. However.....it really is something very special now. From the welcome, to the service, to the food, to the friendly relaxed atmosphere, superb! We went for a family birthday dinner and it was excellent. William the waiter was friendly and efficient. I do think that... More

Excellent lunch, with flexibility to choose from the a la carte, set and bar menus. Some of owner Anton Pietrowski's signature dishes appear on the menu here, but others are created by the head chef. All three courses were delicious. It was good to have a choice of 125ml, 175 ml and 250ml glasses of wine ... Many places have... More

From when we entered the establishment we were met by smiling cheerful staff. Relaxed, efficient service complemented a very pleasing dining experience. The four of us chose a selection from the menu which provided superb food well matched tastes and a flair for originality. A thoroughly pleasant evening. we will, without doubt be back again.

I have been eating at the Springer for years and it has always served better than average pub food but went up a notch when Anton Piotrowski bought the place a couple of years ago. Anton was a Masterchef winner and his main restaurant The Treby Arms is as good as it gets. I have been to the Springer three... More

Visited twice last year, while on holiday, and were impressed with the food, service and atmosphere. Also visited their sister pub, the Treby Arms, last year, with similar menu, but even more pretentious. Slightly disappointed this year. Food was ok, but a bit more minimalist than I'd remembered from previously. Will be pleased when the fad for serving things on... More

We have visited this pub last year and had an excellent meal. We popped in for lunch and i ordered fish and chips. It was served on what can only be des cribed as a dish not too dissimilar to that used by school children and prisoners i.e. divided. It was ceramic rather than plastic. It made handling cutlery difficult... More
