I am a regular visitor to this pub/restaurant with my friend. Would recommend the chicken and bacon sandwich or the nachos. Both very good. Good pool table and only 50p. Staff are friends and the place has a friendly atmosphere.

Three of us had Sunday roast..2 roast beef and 1 chicken.all plates smothered in a dark gravy sauce possibly bisto and was very salty. I asked for My roast beef to be pink but smothered in gravy couldn't tell... More

Food is clearly taken from a freezer and deep fried, lacking in flavour. No atmosphere in the restaurant, MOTD of a local pub really disappointed.

Heard about the new chef and thought we would give the Feilden's Arms a try.The pub has a lovely welcoming atmosphere. The prawn starter was delicious! Both the cheese and onion pie and the fish and chips were cooked perfectly. The staff were friendly and attentive and we will definitely be returning.

Okay so me and a friend came here to eat, we were greeted by a lovely smiley barmaid named evette, we ordered from the specials board, both selecting the haddock. Safe to say it was the best haddock ive ever eaten, covered in a lemony herby cheese crust with rosemary potatoes it was spectacular! I will be returning.

Been here on a previous occasion, maybe twelve months earlier and the food and service were quite good. However, on our latest visit the standards seem to have fallen. The quality of the food not brilliant, pudding had been heated up in a microwave and service not great.

Thank you for your review, appreciate your feedback. Very surprised on your comment about the service because the staff are constantly praised by customers and regulars on how polite, friendly and attentive they are. I cant remember you being in the kitchen watching the pudding going in to the microwave because if you were you would know that statement is... More

Went on Mother's Day, had to wait a little while for starters but nothing to complain about, however one of the starters didn't arrive at all. Got up and told staff at the bar, it was dealt with straight away. Waitress that eventually brought soup didn't apologise nor did she bring a soup spoon straight away. I think the gent... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am glad you enjoyed the food and my gesture of the Prosecco. We always try our best and the young lady who served the soup had just started with us at the Feilden's, so just a little more time is needed with her. What I love about this review is that... More

We like a bit of effort to be put into a meal but at the same time love pie and chips etc. Feildens caters on both levels, the starters are nice and a bit fancy but you can follow up with some classic pub grub. We've been eating here for years and never had a bad meal. I've not been... More

Ordered some drinks well we were limited because most of the pumps weren't on. We ordered our food. Starters came and my pate was really nice, ribs... More

I have no idea what has happened to this establishment but in such a short space of time this has dramatically gone downhill. The waitress took our drinks order twice and got in wrong twice!
