Top notch in all respects....

Food and service exceeded our hopes and expectations... Agree with other reviewer that the Waiting staff we experienced were excellent despite their youth. Much more than a posh pub and can't wait to go back. Thank you...

The staff at this pub is excellent, which is especially commendable as they were all quite young when I visited. They were friendly, provided excellent, professional service, and excellent recommendations on the food. The pork faggots I was served were excellent; other reviews here comment positively on them as well. They were served with mushy peas which were excellent -... More

Not much time to write this but felt the need to say how brilliant this place is. Second time here and the food was fantastic both times. Really good, varied menu and lovely place to stay and sup on a few beers. I'll be back!

As a regular to Bradford on Avon and The Dandy Lion, we recommended to friends to meet there for a late lunch on Sunday. As food is advertising as being available all day it was disappointing to find little available as most of the menu was sold out. We were greeted by a very surly girl behind the bar who... More

Very good food although somewhat pricey for a pub restaurant and somewhat limited menu. Having said that still a lovely meal.

Had a fabulous rump steak and chips, one of the best steaks I've had out for a while! Nice atmosphere, full of friendly locals.

A party of about 30 of us had dinner here on Monday evening from the Christmas menu. My own 3 courses were a wonerfully light cheese souffle, followed by roast venison with a varied and plentiful selection of vegetables, and a delicious semifredo as dessert. The service was excellent, speedy and courteous. The down side was that the real ale... More

After a lovely walk along the towpath on a dank misty morning,cold and hungry. We decided to pop in for a quick drink and a snack. Thank goodness we changed our minds and had the roast on offer. My husband had the roast beef with lovely cooked veg,including cauliflower cheese,roast potatoes,parsnips and a mighty large Yorkshire. I had the smaller... More

While walking around this lovely town you may not immediately choose this pub as it has a small and fairly modest frontage. However, once inside you realise it is one not to miss. Very welcoming staff, superb beer and wine choices and a very interesting menu with excellent choice for differing appetites, etc. Hope to return to try some more.
