Called at the Roebuck for a drink on Friday night at 10.30pm. We have been in the past for a meal. We were told I am closing and we are a restaurant really. He was very unfriendly, unwelcoming and seemed more interested in his glass of wine than his customers. A place we will never revisit. We have received excellent... More

A very disappointing experience at this place. Having lived in the area for a long number of years and recently moved away, it seemed a good place to meet up with family members at a 'good' country pub for Sunday lunch. We booked the table for seven people t 6PM. As soon as we arrived, we were told that the... More

As a person who has to follow a restricted diet it was a pleasant surprise to find choice of home made gluten free food on the menu at a reasonable price. What was particularly good was gluten free bread also supplied. Quite often places who do supply gluten free food don't bother with the trimmings but not so the Roebuck.... More

We are long time customers of the Roebuck and we love the place. We would never give it a bad review, but we visited last night and found the serving staff just were not up to usual standards. Food was as good as ever, but I don't know if it was new staff but we had a few issues that... More

We visited one evening mid week as its within walking distance and they have an outdoor area for the kids. Whilst outdoor area is a bit tired and unkept, kids loved it but they could make it so much better. It is however safe and enclosed and kids can play whilst adults can enjoy the views and a good meal.... More

Hi Amanda, Thanks for your nice comments about the food at The Roebuck. We really would like to replace our children's play equipment and refence the play area, unfortunately as we are privately owned and have to fund everything ourselves we have to prioritise what we can afford. We've recently had new fencing around the beer garden and had new... More

An excellent lunch today. The variety of food is awesome, ranging from the traditional to the exciting specials, which today was a selection of fish cooked in different ways. An extremely friendly service and absolutely delicious food.

The starters were wonderful, garlic mushrooms and garlic bread. I ordered the lamb for my main however when it arrived it was barely warm and had very little taste aside from the red wine sauce. I didn't eat any of my main and yet when the waitress came to clear the table she didn't comment or ask if my meal... More

I would normally want to follow up a review like this by speaking to the waitress concerned, but I'm a little confused as the review you've written states that our restaurant was reviewed on June 24th, yet you visited in December 2014, am I reading this correctly? I would appreciate you letting me know as we try to encourage waitresses... More
