My wife and I live reasonably close to the Parson Woodforde, and enjoy eating there. Apart from one disastrous lunchtime experience, we have to date had little cause to complain. However, yesterday evening we arrived there at 7. 45, without booking a table. (It was, after all, a Monday evening, and the restaurant has a considerable number of tables, as... More

Having booked a table just a day after having a bad experience in another restaurant the day before we noted that there were no steaks on offer on the Sunday menu. We asked if we could have steak? The reply was most pleasing, we have sirloin or rib eye, within minutes it was confirmed that we could have our steak,... More

Had dinner at The Parson Woodforde this evening. As the weather was so good we asked to sit outside on the terrace. The menu gave a great choice but we selected our food from the specials board. The food was fantastic. To start I had Arancini which were the best I've had. My wife had the slow cooked belly pork... More

I visited the Parson Woddforde with some friends and it was a very enjoyable evening. The weather was lovely so we decided to sit outside. The service was great when our bottle of wine started getting empty we were used if we wanted more and our water jug was constantly topped up. We have a great evening the atmopshere was... More

There have been a few changes of ownership over the years. I first knew it many years ago as The Weston Ringers when it was just a pub. However digressing aside, the new owner has got it absolutely right in my view. It has been very tastefully refurbished in a way which complements the old and the new.A group of... More

We recently had lunch at the Parson Woodeforde and overall it was quite disappointing. The actual environment is very pleasant and you can see the care they take for their customers with attention to detail but the quality of food was poor. We had what was called a ploughman's lunch but looked more like a cheese sandwich. The bread was... More

A last minsute decision to dine here on our way home was an unexpected delight. This reasonably spacious pub has been completely renovated and the retaurant at the back could not hvae been more comfortable. The menu was small and well chosen: when the food arrived it was well cooked, beautifully presented and delicious. A place to be sought out.

There was a party of 8 of us, it was the first time we had eaten there but would happily return. The main courses were excellent, portion size and presentation spot on. I had slow cooked belly pork and it melted in the mouth. A good selection of starters, mains, and desserts. Lovely atmosphere and service was first class.

Manager/waiter incredibly rude and invaded personal space. He needs some training. Steak with peppercorn sauce looked super on the plate with chips and salad. Asked for medium rare, got a raw, cold in the middle, slightly sealed effort that ruined the appetite just by cutting into it.

Thank you for your review. We apologize if you felt the service you received was in some way rude, however the staff were courteous and very apologetic to you. We are very sorry that your steak was under cooked but as soon as we realized we offered to take it straight back and replace it for you. You declined this... More

Very enjoyable lunch on Bank Holiday Monday, food very tasty and fresh and good value for money. Very nice Sauvignon Blanc at a sensible price. Service good perhaps a little slow but we were not in a hurry so not a problem.
