“Listening to the Customer would help!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We have dined at this pub/restaurant several times in the past as we live fairly locally but were extremely disappointed with our most recent visit. Two particular requests were made when placing our order and neither request was accomplished. What was particularly disappointing was the attitude of the waiter , who when asked to take the incorrect dishes back to the kitchen to be corrected, said rather sarcastically that ' well I suppose the customer is always right.' Well - indeed yes he/she is when the rest of the party can vouch for what was ordered. Such a shame. We wont be visiting again in a hurry.

“Comes close”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Not quite the best meal I've ever had in a restaurant, but it comes very close. We both had the Beef and thoroughly enjoyed it. A good selection of vegetables, and plenty of gravy! Extra Yorkshires come at a very sensible price of 25p each, which is a good deal when you have ended up being charged between 85p and £1 elsewhere. The greeting on arrival was very welcoming and we were given a table in the restaurant, despite being slightly disappointed by the original booking which had us in the bar. The waitresses were very pleasant and helpful, so what more could you ask? Space is an issue, especially if like me you are on the (very) large side, but this is an old fashioned pub/restaurant, so it is expected and accepted. Very good experience and one we will hopefully enjoy again in the near future and it will be recommended to family and friends.

“sensible prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I went for Sunday roast, the food was excellent reasonably priced with good portions. The restaurant area is small but it is a proper old pub with a good atmosphere.

“A great little pub.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

Booked a table for two for wedding anniversary meal. First visit having been recommended. Small 24 seat restaurant. Good menu plus specials board. Food was excellent. Nice choice of wines at sensible prices. Friendly service. Will go again.

“Still good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

We visited the World's End for a second time on the 24th April. Once again we found the staff very friendly and the food & drinks good value for the price paid. We took my Mother-in-Law with us and she was very impressed. So no doubt we will be visiting on a regular basis.
