Service is good but the food quality seems to have slipped. havent been in for a while and heard my friends say it has become hit and miss . shame as used to be really good on all counts.

We have been coming here for a number of years. Especially in the summer with friends and family with little children and found the place pretty good with respect to food, ambience and activities for kids. Last time we came in was last October and found that the service and the food quality was poor. Today we dropped in for... More

Quick and friendly service with offers. However quantity did not make up for lack of quality and poor atmosphere with dated decor. However it was reasonably priced but not my taste really.

We booked a table for 11 of us, in the function room. Great room, especially as we had several children, meant we were away from the bar & not disturbing other diners! Food was great, good size & tasty. Only complaint was lasagne which came in a tiny dish..ended up sharing some of my dinner with my husband as he... More

We came with friends for a post Christmas lunch. We hadn't booked and the pub was pretty busy but we managed to get a table. After a week of turkey it was nice to have some pub food! I had the homemade burger which was lovely, especially as it came with the pubs own chips. The kids meals were generous,... More

Waited an hour and a half for food and then watched tables that had arrived an hour after us get served food. Eventually three out of ten meals arrived cold, burnt and tasteless burgers. I told them not to bother and give me my money back. It would have been zero stars, but actually the Garden and pub are lovely... More

Been eating here for ten years and the Bewl trout has always been a treat not to be missed. So why did our table wait over an hour at lunchtime for a very straightforward sausage and mash, plus the aforementioned much loved trout, for it to arrive dried out and over cooked? It had clearly been warmed through and was... More

We had a great lunch here, really good beer selection and loved the scotch eggs. Nice woodland area nextdoor for the kids to run around.
