Visited for lunch. Arrived at 12 & the place was quite empty which we felt would mean prompt service, we were wrong it was very slow. Plus points were that the waitress was friendly (& did apologise for the delay) & the food was good & reasonably priced.

Good tasty food and plenty of it, service lets them down, and I think it's down to too few staff at busy times

I went to the White Rabbit for dinner with my friends a few days ago. It was pie night so a couple of us were tempted by the selection. When it came to placing an order, the waiter was not rude, but certainly not particularly friendly. My friend asked him if the pie came with gravy. He straight away said... More

We visited The White Rabbit as a group of work colleagues. In the main dining room we had another table of friends/work colleagues. Overall in the room there was about 25 people across 2 big tables. I really felt for the one waiter who had to wait on 25 people for around 3 hours. Yes it was a hot day,... More

I visited with family (6 people) for Sunday lunch on Sunday 27 August. Service was slow and the food very poor. The sharing platter of BBQ beef ribs was gristle-bound and flavourless. It was all but impossible to discern which meat was which in the formulaic roast dinners. On the plus side the decor is good, the beer palatable and... More

We arrived for Sunday dinner and ordered our drinks and food from the bar first, the staff were friendly. We ordered a Sunday roast dinner platter which took 50 minutes to arrive, when it did the quality of it was OF A... More

Food was really nice & taste & good value for money. No air conditioning spoilt the evening. Very uncomfortable inside. Service was very slow at the bar, didn't seem to have enough staff on to cope with the amount of people there

An average pub. Staff can be a bit flippant at times when you request certain drinks which is why i've not returned since. I've yet to try the food which could be ok.

Five of us booked lunch for a family get together and first impressions were it was very friendly, pleasant, clean and well presented. Drinks and main courses were ordered and we were surprised that the waitresses were not very knowledgeable about the menu. The main course took ages to arrive and was served by a different waitress who seemed to... More
