Excellent Lunch with attentive staff

We had a lovely experience here dispute the reviews. My 18 month old is gluten free and I couldn't believe the choice of good available to him.

I've been here on multiple occasions over the past 2 years, and in the past have had excellent meals, albeit the food taking an age to arrive. A few months back we had a family birthday party of 10, including 4 children below 10, the starters (5) took over an hour to arrive and were cold. Someone kept asking us... More

Read the reviews regarding this restaurant and thought I would give it a go. The menu is very extensive which makes me very suspicious with ordinary run-of-the-mill fare. If you are looking for 'fine dining' this is certainly not the place to go!

Dear Stuffedhandbag Thankyou for your feedback. I am sorry that you felt that we are just an average pub. We are part of the Chef & Brewer brand and are not a 'fine dining' restaurant as we are a pub, but we are very proud of what we do. Regards Mimi More

Warm, friendly and helpful staff. Good food at a reasonable price. All the old favourites on the menu plus new ones, frequently updated. We go regularly on Thursday at the request of our 4 1/2 year old granddaughter who loves it.m

Dear simont1975 Thankyou for your positive feedback regarding your meal. Regarding the comments about the dogs in the pub, we are a country pub and welcome dogs in our bar area. To get to the bar area the dogs do have to walk through the pub, but not through a designated food area. We have never had an issue where... More

Excellent food at great prices. Our waiter Jacob was so polite and friendly and went out of his way for our daughter. Food was outstanding. The pork belly was brilliant.

We popped in for lunch initially and were so impressed with the interior and service that we agreed to come back later in the week for an evening meal. I'd only ever really been to the Blu Cap for quick drinks in the past so was surprised at the service, the atmosphere and to some degree the food (my wife's... More
