Just visited The Lightwood Tavern now the new management have taken over. We decided that we would give the food a try. What a lovely meal both myself and husband had. I had the steak and hubby had the ribs. Both were cooked to perfection. Definitely be eating there again as the price is also really reasonable too.

Hadn't got half the food on menu- blamed delivery not turning up on sat ! Waited over 1/2 hr for food then when it did arrive it was cold and undercooked. Odered a large coffee which cost £2.25 but was more of medium sized and no free refill option.

Rude staff. Standing around for ages before being served. Short changed and made to feel like a criminal when they refused to reimburse me. Never setting foot in the place again
