Cold restaurant cold food

Lovely looking building and really friendly staff. BUT the building was freezing cold with a strong draft. Food order was taken quickly but took a while to come. 3 of the 6 meals were colder than you would expect and one was completely cold. The food was ok but nothing special.

We have eaten at the Poplar Farm many times over the years. The quality of the experience has varied at times but this evening the staff excelled themselves. I will assume that this is down to a competent manager and some effective staff training. On a busy Saturday evening, we were greeted and seated promptly, and the drinks order taken... More

We visited the Poplar Farm pub on Mothers Day with my step son and his family. The venue is child friendly, but not so much as to put off people who don't have kids (i.e. not full of play areas and screaming kids). We arrived an hour early for our booking, but the staff maanged to accomodate us after a... More

Absolutely lovely meal. Staff were attentive, very friendly and knowledgable on the menu. Food was very well presented and tastes great. I recommend the cheese garlic bread- amazing!

Had been disappointed in my previous visit and the reviews did not encourage a second visit, but on our way home we decided to have another try. Much better service, food choice good and the food and wine went down very well, it was a Sunday evening and quite busy, but everyone around us appeared as happy as we were... More

We had pre booked a table for a Christmas party with fellow mums from school. The drinks were slow to arrive, there were a couple of chosen food choices not available that night, as we had pre booked, didn't think that was good as they should have planned the menu better.. Overall tasty food, good company and value for money.... More

I travel past this pub regularly and find the Vintage Inn brand generally good around the country. First visit last year saw poor service and adequate food, below what I'd expect of Vintage Inn. A second visit in December poor service and worse food, and a self promise to not return. Today, poor weather and a long journey saw my... More

Have been before an know from experience that service can be a bit slow, but as it was early evening thought I would risk it. Car park was not busy and neither was the restaurant, a few people eating but no where near full. Providing menus, taking orders does seem to take ages, although we didn't have to wait long... More

We used the Poplar Farm for a mid-week luncheon. I was very dubious when I saw that it was a Vintage Inns pub as I had recently had a terrible experience at another of that chain, but the Poplar Farm turned out to be very good. The pub was pretty quiet, so we were able to get a table near... More

Food ok nothing special but the food and drinks were reasonably priced. Plenty of seating space and polite staff. Parking not great as I am disabled and struggled to get parked in the lower area of car park.
