As pubs go, pretty good!

I have been here twice within a couple of weeks. Firstly, we held a party in the function room...we thought it was good value. The food was good, buffet fayre...nothing exceptional but well done. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was really nice: clean, contemporary and... read more

Very disapointing I asked if they were still serving food they said yes waited 30mins and then said the chef couldn't do it as they were catering for a large table of 15. When my husband complained and said good job no one else wanted to order food the barman then mutter ******* pikeys under his breath. Dont think I... More

Hi, Apologies for taking some time to respond to this review. Upon reading your comments I was very shocked by what you have claimed my staff said. Having spoken with all team members working that day I am satisfied that they did not make the comments you suggest but I do feel that they owe you a full explaination of... More

I visited here after work for a few drinks. The staff were friendly and they seemed to have a good selection of drinks. It's in the old town, not too far from the arts theatre. Plenty of seating at the stools along the bar, as well as a mix of tables.

A very busy restaurant although staff friendly despite pressure. Sufficient staff for the occasion and variation in menu to accommodate a child were readily accepted and serving staff did not forget request when meal served. Although busy, tables were placed discretely and there was ample privacy to enjoy a gathering without feeling that conversations could be overheard. Lighting was subdued.... More

Staff could not have been more obliging, friendly or helpful. Hannah was very helpful in setting up the venue, and Tom was outstanding on the night at the bar, attending to our music whims (volume, swapping usb sticks), and likeable character. Venue allowed us to completely personalise the reception with our own decorations and crazy ideas. Well stocked bar. Projector... More

Went for Sunday Lunch with a friend. The food was really excellent, the presentation was really nice. We both had the roast beef. It was served with fresh vegetables, roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. Plus gravy. Delicious, no complaints other than could of been more food on the plate as was so lovely.

Staff very friendly. That's a huge plus. We had a weekend lunch. The food took a little too long, about 45 mins and it wasn't all that busy. The food itself, I like the idea of the sandwiches but, the pork was more ham than pork and the chicken seemed to be bought in pre sliced breast. Sausages were a... More

Visited the POTH for our work's Christmas party which we had in the upstairs function room. The pub is nice and the staff are super friendly, but a couple of negative comments as follows... The food itself was ok. Soup was ok. Duck was ok, if a little overcooked for my taste. Vegetables were nice. Christmas mess was sadly lacking... More

I've just had one of the loveliest xmas lunches at the Pig on the HIll, although Turkey is not on the menu I'd highly recommend the roast beef. The red apple, parsnip and ginger soup to start was also delicious. The rest of my group (there were 9 of us) also commented on how lovely the food was, and between... More

Popped into a colleagues leaving do for c 20-30 people. I haven't been for a while and there was a good relaxed atmosphere, drinks and food good. Plenty of places for either a relaxing chat or to be more in the thick of things.
