Bad day

First visit. Took forty minutes for the drinks to arrive. Nearly fifty five for the food to arrive. Well cooked lamb steak but alas tasteless. Did not dare to ask to salt and pepper as we might have finished our meal the time it came. Went somewhere else for dessert and coffee.

Visited on a Friday evening and very disappointing. We were served by a young girl who did not know the menu or the wine list. Asked for prosecco before our wine but it came after the wine which she poured so was warm when we drank it. The food was OK but overpriced. The most telling indictment was that on... More

A group of us visited the William Bray for lunch on a Sunday. The food was AMAZING, however the service and prices let the place down. There was (what looked like) a group of kids serving us, they'd all collect in a group to gossip by the bar, each time one of us would have to get up and go... More

If you don't go along with what they serve , you don't get a nice dinner, ie I asked for my lamb to be cooked more as it was pink (this a roast dinner), it came back to me swimming in greasy gravey , so this chef thinks he can do this, no no way. And at £16

This pub/gastro pub is extremely modern and you can see the attention to detail that has gone into the design of the frontage, interior and menu. We went Sunday 17th July and the presentation for the roast dinner was marvellous and the beef red ( as it should be!) The service was professional, unobtrusive and friendly. This venue is definately... More

We visited the William Bray with colleagues to celebrate a project milestone and had a lovely evening. Staff greeted us with drinks at the bar at and soon after we went to the dining room for our meal. There was plenty of choice for starters and mains (mostly "modern pub food" but with a twist and very nicely presented) and... More

Main course not too bad, only spoiled by the chef having a rant at the KP with constant rants of "do you understand?" Then the main server (a gent) saying that the cutlery was now clean as it had been out in the rain! Dessert - what a laugh! £8 for a dish that looked NOTHING like the web images.... More
