Pleasant meal in nice surroundings

I visited this pub some years ago with my family & had a pleasant meal then, so decided to go back again to see if it had changed. We found that the standards had been maintained & that the food was still very good & the prices were very reasonable. The pub itself has a lot of character & is... read more

A group of 8 Walkers fell upon this great Pub following a very tiring walk around the area of East Harptree. I chose the London's Pride beer - perfect - kept well and served well. Our food order were taken and the Roast Meals delivered promptly by a charming waitress. It's a small country pub, full of character - off... More

We have been coming to this pub for many years and enjoyed very many wonderful meals. We have recently visited and were dismayed by our experience, how can a pub that was so good be so changed. Firstly the menu now consists of really basic food such as burgers, no fine dinning anymore and secondly I would enjoy a burger... More

We stayed at Harptree Court for three nights and each evening we popped 'down the road' the Waldegrave Arms for our tea. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.

From the outside this pub looks great and it is in a lovely setting. They say that a good indicator as to the standard of a dining establishment is how busy it is, The Waldegrave Arms wasn't busy, there was only one other couple dining in fact. We ordered our meals and although the fish and chips was OK, the... More

This has been one of our favourite destinations for many years but this week arrived to discover all had changed. Gone was the warm welcome, the interesting menu, the high quality food. The 'pulled pork with manchego on buttermilk flatbread' ( sounds great doesn't it?) was totally underwhelming - lumps of pork on a dry pitta-type bread. I had asked... More

Having eaten here several times over the years 9 of us were looking forward to doing so again. We had a long wait before being seated, a further long wait to get our starters for which the manager apologised and gave us a complementary bottle of wine. There was a further long wait for our main course which was only... More

A bit like reviewer Bri-anT1963, it was quite cold at the table, maybe as you are surrounded by old stone in this quaint countryside pub. Service was excellent and the food was very good, although I thought quite a limited new menu. lovely home made tortillas and proper meat and side dips to start and nice big bit of lamb... More

We ate across two consecutive nights, they were changing menus which made things more interesting. Food and service were both excellent however it was cold, we had to keep our coats on as the fire wasn't lit :(

I really like this place (5 meals now). It has a 'homely' feel and the team are so friendly and the food is great. We both had the £9 steak expecting a small piece of meat maybe of a 'budget' cut, But no !.......A lovely steak - perfectly cooked. I can honestly say, I have paid double this for no... More
