Stopped in on way home after a nice walk. Just after a pint and some nibbles. Gave in and left after 5 mins of being totally ignored by 3 different members of staff. Only 2 other customers at the bar. Shame as the place looks like it's recently been refurbished. Will not return. Much nicer places nearby.

Enjoyed a nice lunch here. The food used to be excellent but dipped noticeably about a year ago. Friends said it was getting back to its best. Still not up to its five star best but still an excellent meal.

My wife and I decided to treat ourselves to Sunday lunch. As we had vouchers for the Chef and Brewer we decided to find the closest one from home, which turned out to be the Blue Cap. We have been there before, but not for a long time. We got there just after 1pm. There were plenty of spaces in... More

Adult family had a lovely meal on a busy Saturday night. Service was excellent despite hiccup with booking on line. Don't book after 11am on same day using online system. You will get confirmation but pub don't. Fitted us in and food /service /price met all expectations. Would recommend tiffin and belly pork.

Indifferent and inattentive staff, excessive wait between courses, restaurant was not excessively busy, when the food did arrive it was barely warm took almost two hours for just the starter and mains, ordered deserts but again long wait, gave up paid the bill and left without having desert's, would I return or recommend? hardly likely un less things change drastically.
