just right !!

A table for 5 was booked for a group of ' girls ' celebrating a milestone for one at work. This was early on Tuesday evening, so not expecting it to be very busy, and it wasn't. We had really good service from a young man, all the way through. Good food, naughty desserts and all reasonably... read more

I work in a family restaurant so I know how such an environment works, what the food is like, etc. Visited Chaucers with my girlfriend for the first time after a day out for a quiet meal. Immediately noticed on entry that one member of staff whom I believe was called Sam was quite brusque and couldn't seem to stand... More

Have walked past this place several times and wish on this occasion we had kept on walking. The whole place needs a really good clean, including the staff uniform. We were put in a side cove, which had really poor lighting and bad stains on the upholstery. Ordered 2 gourmet burgers and a jalapeno burger, none of which were very... More

The waiter was friendly and pleasant in manner but service was very slow ? due to kitchen delay. Five of us in party( all booked beforehand), two of whom ordered same meals but only one of these came with other 3 meals together. My son's meal didn't arrive until we other four had almost finished our main courses. Waiter very... More

Service was a little on the slow side, but the staff were pleasant. The premises were on the main shopping street and down some stairs, which means there is no view or any where to sit in the summer

Firstly I would like to say, what a great staff they have here. My thanks go out especially to Reese who was certainly on the ball there. He chatted with customers and was fun and efficient. Myself and my partner were delightfully surprised by all the staff here. The guy who made my partner a cocktail and the young lady... More
