Brilliant food, great service. Staff friendly and nice to talk to. Food was hot, tasty and loaded! We had lasagne, burger, garlic bread and cheesy chips and we over ordered! I couldn't finish anything! Still left enough room for pud which was awesome! Cheesecake. 2 spoons!

Thank-you for taking the time to place a review. Apologies that everything wasn't quite up to usual standard. As you can probably see from numerous other reviews we tend to encourage a friendly relaxed atmosphere but maybe our staff were a little too relaxed! I have chastised them over this and as the food was "very nice indeed" then I... More

I visited with a work colleague for lunch on one of the hottest days in July. We sat in the busy garden area and service was quick, friendly and professional - Sarah was our waitress. The food was excellent; my main course was hot and tasty and my colleague's salad was superb according to her! A great place to go... More

Thank-you for placing your review, haven't we had a lovely summer and our garden has been really busy this year . We needed extra parasols to keep everyone cool. I hope everyone doesn't come in and expect to see Sarah now as she's been on lots of holidays!! We like our staff to be attentive and relaxed so she's earned... More

My wife suggested stopping here on our way home after a spot of fruit picking. I have been past may times over the years but never had the opportunity to visit. Internally it certainly has the look of a country pub with wood everywhere and beams overhead. There is a restaurant but we opted for the public bar which at... More

We have now had Sunday lunch four times in recent weeks plus an excellent meal today. The standard has never dropped and the service equally efficient. The price, quality and quantity is so refreshing in the current climate. I would recommend this pub to anyone.

Thank-you for placing a review and for coming to see us so frequently. We endeavor to keep our food and service consistent and our prices as compatible as possible with the 'chain-pubs' even though we are a freehold with a local, fresh menu. We look forward to seeing you again soon. More

My parents have recently moved to Andover and we chose this pub based on the tripadvisor rating... We had a part of 8 and overall we found it to be very average with some staff not being welcoming at all. Snappy etc! We couldn't order because there was a delay in a new batch of roast potatoes!?...and no offer of... More

Thank-you for taking the time to place a review. Unfortunately we had a break-in the day before, not that it should have affected our staff but it seems to have left us all a little shaken and obviously not firing on all cylinders. Come and see us again I'm sure we will perform better. More

It is rare that I can say that I didn't want the meal to end. I had the duck salad with hoi sin sauce which was terrific. The staff are efficient and friendly. I would recommend this gem to anyone.

Thank-you for your review. It's wonderful to see someone calling us a 'gem'. We try to be unique and friendly and keep our menu local,appetizing and a little different, but still at good prices. We hope to see you again soon. More

Went to the wyke down for the first time in a long while as I remembered it was good food, good portions and reasonable value but sadly this wasn't the case this time. I opted for the cottage pie which came out on a plate with nothing else, no veg or anything and the wife had ham egg and chips... More

In August 2012 I reviewed this pub / restaurant as "Excellent Family Dining". Sadly, this didn't appear to be the case on Sunday when five of us ate lunch there. The restaurant was busy but not full and the service was incredibly slow. Waiting staff were seen walking through the restaurant eating food and taking our order took an age.... More

Thank-you for taking the time to review us, just a shame things didn't appear to be up to their usual standard. One of our main problems is that if you are sat in one end of the building you are not always aware of the amount of customers in the rest of the building. We are still run by the... More

I live locally and Arranged to meet some friends for a meeting about a local society. The lady behind the car was helpful in finding us a table for our meeting, although the music was a bit loud so we moved. Beer was excellent - lovely London pride. Will certainly go back.

Many thanks for taking the time to review us. I'm pleased that you found somewhere quiet to have your meeting. We do provide a dedicated meeting room as a quieter area for clubs and small groups of people, although it's best to book in advance. Hope to see you again soon. More
