“"Good", but not "Very Good" yet.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Our first visit last week for lunch. The pub was busy but not heaving, and although we had been allocated a corner table, a couple just left and we managed to get a table in the window. Very nice.
Atmosphere was very pleasant and we hoped the food would be good.

We chose fish & chips, boring I know, but it's what we fancied. When it arrived, the fish & batter were good but the chips were chunky-style with the potato skin left on, and they were adequate but not wonderful. Tartare sauce however was clearly home made, and tasted lovely. Slice of lemon a bonus too.

Cappucino and Earl Grey tea were both very tasty, but I was disappointed to see that the inside of the small milk jug was not clean - presumably a dishwasher problem which I raised with the waitress. (Waitress was very pleasant btw).

We didn't have a dessert, but the list looked interesting and we may be back to try one another day.

While we were waiting for our food, I noticed one of the guys in charge sweeping the step clean outside, which was quite impressive. Hopefully the outside cleanliness is reflected on the inside too despite the milk jug issue.

Inexpensive at only £7.50 for fish & chips though the £2.50 tea and £2.25 cappucino weren't. In Total, £19.75 (service not included) is pretty reasonable.

“They can do better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

I have visited the Broadfield several times in the last few months, its local to me and serves good food. My issues with the place is that you sometimes feel rushed at busy times, one member of staff has been rude on several occasions, once she rolled her eyes when my friend requested something which i think is unacceptable when you are woking in a service job. On more than one occasion we have been waiting an hour for our food and have had to wait ages before someone came to take our orders. The menu doesn't get changed very often and when it does they only change one or two things. I often think that there isn't enough choice on there either. I think its a great place and the food is really good however the service problems is why i have given an average again.

“Pies, pies, pies...what's not to love?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Do you like pies? Do you like nice beer? Do you like pies, and nice beer together? If the answer is yes, get thee to The Broadfield, because they are brilliant at pies and beer. Just don't attempt to do anything meaningful with the rest of your day.

“Tremendous food and ales to boot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Being 'The Stoats' local I weren't 'alf hoping the the new improved Broady was going to be up to scratch upon opening last year or whenever, and I can tell thee summit it darn well is! Cracking, tasty, top notch pub food and a fabulous selection of ales, both British and also from places as far flung as Chicago, Thailand and Wales?! Hurrah for the reinvention of The Broady, long may it continue with the quality styles, like.

“brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

recently visited with some freinds on good friday 2013 around 2pm.

The pub has seen some big changes since i was last there and i have to say i was pleasently suprised, the place has a lovely cosy and warm feeling to it.

The food was amazing! i wasnt sure what to expect to be honest! i ordered the beef, mushroom and ale pie with homemade chips and mushy pies it was amazing i have to say it was a hard decision to make as there were some pretty amazing sounding things on both the regular and specials menu, the pastry was lovely it was nice and soft on the inside yet had a nice brown crisp shell. The chips were rather big but still very nice and i think the mushy peas were also homemade and they too were yummy! The food while it had a modern feel it still retained its home cooked traditional feel which was a welcome suprise these days. We decided to go for dessert even though i was really stuffed, i was again not dissapointed i had the toffee sponge it came with toffee sauce and icecream and it was delightfull! not a huge portion but just enough to satisfy my sweet tooth and allready strained tummyvafter a big main course. Drinks were also very nice i had a deception shandy and i have to say it was very suprising it had a very light flowery sweet taste to it which i liked so much it was all gone before our food orders were even taken : ) i then had a coke and a latte with my dessert the latte was outstanding and very well made!
the service was also outstanding the staff very attentive and helpfull.
