“Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Standard pub food, lots of specials, but gets more than an average rating because of excellent service. They stop serving food at 9pm. Lots of nice outdoor seating (we visited in July) but imagine it is nice and cosy in Winter. Parking space limited and tricky if you have a large vehicle.

“Good quality pub food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Visited on a Wednesday lunch time, quite busy outside as it was a hot day but plenty of seats around. Picked up menus and went to bar to order. After bar lady had ported drinks went to order food then shed said there would be a 30 to 45 minutes wait as only one person in the kitchen. This through us and said we would have the drink and go to the pub round the corner. Wet then sat down and thought about it and changed our minds. It did take 30 minutes to come but most people were leaving by then. However the food was delicious, plentiful and competitively priced. Shame about the lack of information when we went in and why I heavens name does a pub serving food in the peak holiday season not have sufficient staff.

“Great staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

We went there for a meal and a few drinks. The food was typical pub food, but nice. We had a lovely bottle of Chilean wine there. The 2 guys working there were fabulous. Very pleasant, always having a smile, and making sure that we were having a good evening. Well done guys, it makes a nice change.

“Cream tea”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Complete disappointment; not enough cream, horrible jam in a plastic pot, tea for two just enough for one and butter on request. Scones nothing to write home about either. Burley is also a town ruined by tourism, shops sell nothing but tat and Burley Inns cream tea match unfortunately, still the forest itself and the horses are fantastic!

“Great Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Stopped in for a family lunchtime meal on a fairly busy day with my wife and 12 year old daughter. We were impressed all round. Great food, good classic gastropub menu, good real ale and efficient friendly service. We left content, well fed and surprised at the value which was great for the overall quality.
