Bustling pub with big selection of food and a lovely outside area

Had a very late Sunday lunch here in June following a two family bike ride. Very bustling when we arrived, but pub was very accommodating of our late arrival. Great selection of bar snacks to keep us cheery whilst waiting for our email (mini salamis particularly popular). Good selection of... read more

Went there with friends for a midweek lunch. There was only one space left in the car park so we thought "this looks busy, must be good". How wrong can you be , inside the place was almost empty and there were a few people in the garden. Shown to a dark corner table which we rejected for somewhere lighter... More

Food average, better pub food available locally, but the biggest thing was the poor service. Food took a long time and we repeatedly had to ask and chase up drinks. The first time we chased up drinks we were told that they were very busy and if we had ordered them they would be coming. No apology, no chasing them... More

My family and I have visited the LBJ several times, and enjoyed it every time. Yes, the food is very good, but the staff have really been the deciding factor in our return visits. We know some of them well, and they ask after missing members of the party. But I took my aunt to lunch yesterday. If this had... More

Went for lunch with my wife, 4 year old and baby and had a lovely lunch. Decent menu with well cooked food. The garden is just perfect, we could sit and chat whilst keeping an eye on the child playing on the tree house with slide. The staff were all really friendly and made us feel very welcome. In fact...

Stopped here enroute and had a great bacon sandwich. Looked like the bread was homemade. Sat outside as the weather was fab on this Sunday.

The food is excellent. The service needs a little work. The waiter who took our order came back three times as he either forgot what we ordered or something on the menu was all gone. when the meals arrived they were very nice . Then every two minutes we were interrupted by different waiters asking if everything was ok. This... More

Came across this whilst looking for a dog friendly pub/restaurant. This is so much more, the garden is huge and well laid out with little straw huts to hire in the evening, and a discrete children's play area. Inside it is very attractive and welcoming, the food and service are spot on. Much more friendly and welcoming than another Whiting... More
