Food amazing - service poor

The food in the restaurant here was amazing - just what we needed after a long walk!! We cannot fault anything with the meal itself as it was delicious. The only thing that let this down was the lofty attitude from some of the waiting staff. We were rushed to make an order and no help was given... read more

Service poor, despite being the first customers had to wait forty minutes for the meal to arrive. Where told we had to vacate the table within ninety minutes and as a result felt very rushed. Part of the meal had to be returned because it was cold.

Busy but not too overcrowded. Beer and wines are excellent. Tweenies burgers are very good and staff are extremely attentive. Would recommend.

We have been regular diners here for years and years. But the experience is now much below previous expectations. The menu choice is much reduced and much less "up market" - why? We understand the chef is the same guy. Are they trying to restrict choice to improve profit margins? The service tonight was non-existent. OK it was busy but... More

food was ok, not brilliant. It is a busy pub and the food took a long time to arrive. Sometimes has live music and is so noisy even without the music that you cannot converse with your friends

Visited here on Aug 25 for lunch. My wife and I both ordered the burger, hers with cheese, cost including 2 soft drinks a whopping £32. Burger was home made, chips were of the frozen variety, included one dismal lettuce leaf in each burger, served on narrow wooden "slabs". Not good value at all, service mediocre

Just so gorgeous to sit out and enjoy a cold glass or two. We were the epitome of class and had chips and wine! The best chips though. Very lively and friendly bar (children and dog friendly too).

WE travel to the lakes quite a lot and invariably end up in Tweedies. They have live music at weekends and a great atmosphere, helped by the friendly staff. Would recommend to all.
