A family visit

We go to the Panborough often as we have found like very few others they are happy to cater for children and now with there soft play cafe the kids want to go all the time. We really enjoy the famous steak and ale pie and the carrot and coriander soup is gorgeous.

time has finally caught up with this place used to be such a good village local but over recent times most of the loyal regulars have gone elsewhere due to the poor running and attitude to the locals. Hopefully the lesson has been learned by the present owners and that it will be bought by a freindlier owner that values... More

We love the place! Every time we are in the area we come for their Sunday roast...it is SO good! We always make sure we arrive early and book to have a table by the windows, they even have our favorite Movenpick ice cream!!Can't ask for more! The ladies are efficient even when it gets crowded. We always leave with... More

We came here for a family lunch for our wedding anniversary with our 3 year old and 5 week old, I booked it solely for the soft play. Adults both had Sunday roast, which are done on specials menu, 1 course, 2 courses or 3 courses. We had 2 courses for just over £10 each, the food was fantastic. Kids... More

Took my two boys out on the soft play area who really enjoyed the facilities. Didn't realise they served food in there too, so we also had our lunch whilst the kids played in the soft play area. Good food, decent kids menu and reasonable prices too. Staff were friendly and we were served quickly. Ended up staying most of... More

Spent a lot of money only to come out with 4 miserable children and an upset wife: Arrived and checked out play area, went and ordered food. Food arrived about an hour later (with for example what looked like a childs scampy and chips for £10). Next we were presurised to order kids desserts (having only been given the menus... More

Had a dinner here for 10 people on quite a busy night. Despite being a large party when the restaurant was almost full the service was quick and friendly. No complaints from anyone about any of the food but, if it's on the menu, go for the meat pie. A huge amount of good quality meat and perfect pastry.

On a visit with my family we had very slow service, and had issues with the children not been able to use the play area although advertised open until 4 pm. When this was pointed out to them that this is printed on there own advertisement , we received abuse and accusations that was beyond belief

Disappointed with Panbrough Inn and their soft play place. Went to the pub part for lunch today, got there at 1:30, service was slow. Food didn't come out for over an hour. When we asked if it was possible for the kids to have their puddings down to the soft play area, we were told it had closed. This was... More
