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.

Family meal during half term - arrived later than would normally expect for a 'lunch sitting' but there was no problem in getting the dishes we wanted in good time. The venison burger was good, as were the children's meals....I think my wife would have preferred a baguette with more bite/crunch but overall, we were happy with the main courses.... More

Lovely atmosphere and excellent service for a meal on Saturday. The menu was no frills good pub food. I ordered the gravadlax which was excellent. The thick homemade bread made it very filling and was so fresh and soft. Delicious. I decided to stay with fish and ordered the local bewl water trout. Oh my goodness - it was more... More

What a great review, and one I have shared with the chefs. Thank you. We have just put the gravadlax on the menu, so they were very happy to hear you enjoyed it! The trout is brought in by the local fishermen, and has definitely been a best seller. We realise the portions come out rather big, but we are... More

I have been going here every 3 - 4 months with friends over the past 18 months. The interior is nice, with a good choice of seating, we always sit at the same table. Staff are always helpful and friendly. The menu is pretty much the same each time, but they do have a specials board. I had chicken and... More

Thanks for your review. I'm so glad you are making regular visits to the pub, and you always have a good experience. Big apologies about the decaf, we have plenty in now, and I promise to keep an eye so we don't run out! Look forward to seeing you again soon... More

Havent been to the BT for a few years and looked forward to the lunch time experience. Pub has an attractive atmospere and garden and I thought we would be well fed. Unfortunately the lunch time food seemed to be a bit basic and the sausage and mash consisted of loads of mash with overdone dry sausages. If you can't... More

I have passed your comments on the kitchen, especially about the sausages. We take this as constructive criticism, and I hope if you were to give us any chance things will have improved. Many thanks. More
