Busy gastro pub.

The Littleton was our second choice, because the Star doesn't do food on a Friday night. They've just lost 2 customers! The Littleton's not cheap, but the food's very good. We had belly pork, and a roasted cod fillet - both were a good plateful, and with the accompanying sides very tasty. A good... read more

Recently visited to catch up with some old friends. Although the pub was very busy we were still greeted with a smile. The staff were very attentive and helped my friend who has gluten intolerance to decide on her food. The food was lovely and of a very high quality, I would highly recommend the chicken!!

Serve an absolutely huge range of options for cooked breakfast. The full English was one of the best I've eaten, with unlimited access to cereal, fruit and juice. Well done guys!

Firstly, someone was actually having a formal interview in the dining area. Should be done in private surely! Secondly, there was a garden strimmer on one of the dining tables. Thirdly , expensive food and ludicrously small portion sizes. Greasy burnt chips! There are far better places locally that do it better cheaper and with far more panache. AVOID!

EH????? You have only ever written one review...... Every sandwich is served with a universally sized basket of triple cooked chips that are served in restaurants throughout the planet! No interview was carried out that afternoon, a job chat with a chef was carried out, in a separate room, closed off to the public. You chose to exit via the... More

Went there with my partner last Sunday for a lunch. Waited only 10 min for a table, which was great since we did not booked a table and it was busy. I had a pork and my partner had roast lamb. Both were delicious. Wine selection was great and very well priced. Great beer selection too. Friendly and pleasant staff.... More

I am an old curmudgeon from way back so this rather trendy pub where young apparently affluent people hang out is definitely not for me, but the food looked good and the beer was excellent in every respect. Staff seemed efficient and the toilets were clean. The place was busy, which suggests they were aiming for a genuine market and... More

Laughed at and patronised by one of the waitresses! She was Very rude with a real attitude and questioned our reasonable requests whilst pulling a face. After she started arguing with us! we asked her to leave our table and fetch someone else to serve us. The food was good but expensive. The Manager was very nice and looked embarrassed... More

I am sorry about your server, the member of staff in question has been disciplined and as you can see from our previous reviews this is an usual blip on the high standards set here. More

The restaurant offered a good choice of meals on the steak night menu. Two main courses with a bottle of wine for £30:00. The portion sizes were good and the food was well cooked. Judging by the number of people eating the Littleton Arms appears to be popular with local people.

Have visited quite a few times in the past and its always been a nice experience. Had the chicken dish this time which was out of this world, melt in your mouth chicken and potato fondant (which I don't usually like) and the brie, bacon and cabbage medley was amazing, I could of just eaten that on its own I...
