As a family we took our father to the punch bowl for a surprise 80th birthday meal, the area which was reserved for our party was roomy and tables where well presented. The food was great, meat was well cooked and tender and was plentiful from the Carvery. Myself and my family will be returning for sure in the near... More

visited the punchbowl for the first time in approx 44 years!! on 14th april as weather was good. We were lucky to get a table as we hadn't booked and by 12.30 the extensive car park was nearly full. We opted for the carvery which was priced at £6.50. There was a choice of beef, cooked to perfection just lightly... More

We visited the punchbowl again for our annual dinner. The service as always was efficient. The starters and mains were excellent when you consider they were catering for around 100 people. The carvery mains were as always the star, good quality and plenty of it. All in all an excellent night.

A lovely spur of the moment trip for an overnight stay in the Oldbury Suite. The evening meal was delicious and the room we stayed in lovely and clean with separate seating area to the bedroom. The breakfast was lovely too. All of the staff attentive and friendly will certainly be going again.

Visiting this carvery on the recommendation of friends who live locally and who 'know' their food. It they say its good then it's likely to be very good. We visited with family and none of us had been here before. The carvery meal was absolutely delicious and there was not a single bite of food that I didn't enjoy. Lovely... More

We normally cook a meal for all the family at home on Mothers day. This year we are having home improvements done so decided to book for everyone at the Punch bowl. Gareth greeted us and explained how to order food and drinks. The roast was excellent and the meat was beautifully cooked, particularly the lamb. All of the food... More

Birthday treat for my Dads 80th Birthday. Me & Dad had the Venison Pie & mom had the scampi. All 3 meals were piping hot & tasty. The pie was exceptional, the meat was tender, the gravy was thick and the pie top crusty!!! The service was excellent with very polite, accommodating staff. I would highly recommend The Punch Bowl!!!!

... According to the sign on the wall. It is hard to dispute. When we went the restaurant was packed to the rafters with diners. There are always a choice of three or four meats all hand carved before you and all really excellent quality and cooked perfectly in their aga ovens. The vegetables are super, and there are always...
