Nice atmosphere, good service, average food

Celebrating a friend's birthday, we booked a table for a meal for 6 people. Service was good and we were in the main restaurant, which can get a bit noisy, but this particular evening it was fine. Food and pricing was average, so it met out expectations and we were not disappointed.

The Black Tiles was an extremely popular venue for many years but since a change of ownership things have gone down hill.Large garden looks tired and poorly maintained. Menu offers a wide choice but meals were average and relatively expensive. On the plus side service was good and staff helpful and friendly.

This is a local pub to me. I do enjoy the pub but it is looking a little tired now and in need of a refurbishment. The food menu is limited and Is a little bit overpriced for what you get. The red lion pub down the road is much better for food. It's just a honest opinion. But in... More

This largish pub has extensive outside area with a good large safe and secure children’s pay area. In nice weather , which it was when we were there, it is ideal, the kids can wander away from the table, play, come back, go away, all in safety and within view of their parents. The menu is mostly standard pub grub... More

I agree with the previous review. The food at this venue used to be really good quality and had talented chefs. When it was run by Tim it was guaranteed to be good food, good service and it was usually busy. I used to frequently eat and drink at this venue for a number of years. Today we went for... More

The Tiles when ran by Tim was a lovely place to go , lovely garden pleasant staff and nothing was to much trouble. It was always neat and tidy . Today I am afraid it was a sad reflection . Torn leather seats dirty carpets it's just not on , we ordered the same drinks twice and we're charged different... More

On arriving we were shown to our seats promptly and with a warm welcome. Sadly the warmth of our greeting didn't spread through the building - chilly dining area, so coats stayed on and zero atmosphere! No candles on tables, no centrepieces, just a sadly lit room which felt like sitting in a run of the mill cafe! The menu... More

Back again, hoping that things had improved. Food was over priced for portion size and it was a little disappointing. I mentioned my disappointment and the waitress did deduct my pudding from the bill. I know is was a Monday, but it was very very quiet. This pub has definitely dropped in popularity. They had no deals or specials offers... More

I have many fond memories of the Tiles and being local to the area would say it has a prime location for local residents with families. I leave this review with a heavy heart, as I have left it four or five visits over the last 18months+ in the hope that I had just caught them on a bad day.... More
