Reasonable price, service can be hit or miss!

Located on a quiet road just outside Sywell, this pub offers cheap and cheerful food from a chain restaurant. There are large grounds for dining in the summer and a play area for children. I have visited many times due to its closeness to home and affordable food, however at busy times service can... read more

Stopped here for lunch. Food too disgusting to eat. Looked dreadful, tasted even worse. Table dirty. Staff made no effort to be friendly or provide decent service.

Reviewed this restaurant with five stars a few weeks ago,based on waitress service. Decided to visit again,and how disappointing to find we were queuing up at the bar to order food and drinks and only one staff member serving. How confusing was it when we later discovered that part of the restaurant was waiter service and the other half was... More

I visited Overstone Manor for their Sunday Carvery and found it very good value for money! The food was well cooked with a good choice of vegetables. The only slight drawback was that the toilets could have been cleaner.

Lovely pub, lovely location :-) Fayre and Square are a big chain, and this one is our favourite in the area. Food was well cooked, staff were friendly, but not disturbing your meal every 2 minutes, looking forward to sitting in the garden area again when the summer comes

Fifteen minutes after sitting down we'd still not been served so I went to the bar with our order. Despite obviously being second in the queue I was over-looked when a group of lads joined the queue behind me. Barman's friends?! I asked the other bar worker politely if I was in the wrong place to be served and he... More

Having used this restaurant a number of years ago and having great meals then,revisited on way back from visiting a venue. What a difference!!!! Walked past the buffet to the tables and it was all dried up. Tables were filthy and greasy to the touch. Not at anytime did we see anyone cleaning empty tables with spray or cloths. Five... More
