Hi, As soon as I had published my poor review of the pub on here I was contacted by the manager. He was extremely apologetic and spoke to his team about the issues I experienced. I just wanted to leave a note on here to say that I had caught the pub on a "bad day" and that my review... More

Firstly the staff and the service here were fantastic, everyone so friendly and welcoming, from the Barman as soon as we walked in to martin bringing us our food who couldn't do enough for us. Food was fantastic too and a great price. We eat out a lot and this is one of the nicest places I've been in 2014,... More

Impromptu lunch on a lovely sunny day - had dinner here pre-refurb and the place looks fantastic - food fantastic great value for money - service non existent - long waits for everything - if they attended to their customers on the same level as the food then it would be the best experience -

A bit twee in decor although more light and airy than before the refurb. Good food - had to pre-order as we were a party of 18 which I don't like doing but understand why in this sort of establishment. Service was good - friendly and obliging, though not slick. Nice outside area for smokers. Overall a good experience.

We visited The Beeches last weekend, first time there since the new owners and refurb and we have mixed reactions. The food was excellent, no complaints with that, nice selection of food, reasonably priced. Decor has been done out nice, much more light and bright since the old days. However, we were sat near a table of 10 and now... More

Occasionally used this place as a bar in the past when all that was available was lager or bottled beer (albeit very good bottled beer!). Following a refurbishment it now has a proper bar area and, much to my astonishment, has installed a STILLAGE for two real ales! Can't recall any other places installing a stillage in recent years -... More

My daughter stumbled across this pub/restaurant by chance whilst looking for a wedding venue. We were here on 30 May and had the most amazing day. Everything went according to plan, the venue was perfect for everyone - there was ample room for the kids to entertain themselves and plenty of space for all the guests. We enjoyed welcome drinks...

We came to The Beeches for my husband Richard and my daughters boyfriend Charlie's birthday celebrations on Saturday 14th June 2014. What a little gem the way that the new owners have changed this restaurant is very tastefully done. Our waitress Lara was very attentive and provided good service and our thanks go to Jon the Head Chef and his... More

We visited with friends on a Saturday lunchtime in June, and found the place to be of the highest quality from the comfy dining chairs to the delicious food and good service. We had visited before under previous owners and it had been good, but this was even better and we will be back as soon as possible.

We were here in march for a birthday celebration. As there were 18 of us - obviously a pre order was in place for the evening. Everybody's order was in weeks before the event. Not ideal when the first thing you get told is that 3 of the "pre-ordered" starters are not available. I really don't see the point of... More
