“Not quite what we expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

We loved the décor and the ambience, but were disappointed in the quality of the food, for the price. It was nice but not worth what they were charging.

“Lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Popped in for some tea yesterday and really enjoyed it, the place is really nicely decorated and cosy and we sat near one of the open fires. Food was delicious and everything on the menu seemed reasonably priced (I had the two courses for £13 with the Duck starter and Lamb Main).

Will definitely be coming again!

“Sunday dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

This pub feels warm and inviting with beautiful fireplaces and Christmas decorations. However, the service was a little slow. There was tealight candles on every table but they hadn't bothered to light any of them in the restaurant. It was not busy at all, a pub like this should be packed on a Sunday! The food was good, not very hot but ok. I was refused the soup off a set menu which the waiter was told I couldn't have. With no one in the restaurant, I didn't see why this was a problem but sticking to the rules instead of making a customer happy left me feeling fed up. The coffee and mini pudding sounded good for £4.50 but a small scoop of ice cream with caramel sauce wasn't what I had pictured for the salted caramel sundae so I wouldn't bother with that. Shame about the experience cause next time we will be trying somewhere else. :/

“Best it has been for sometime”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

this has always been hit and miss for a long time, however recently we visited on a Wednesday evening for their pie night and it was absolutely spot on, both pies were very tasty. Staff are helpful, only let down is that you can see its part of a big chain (M&B) and it doesn't have a personal touch to it as other local Restaurants / Gastro Pubs were you can feel more welcomed, however it is the best it has been since we have been in the area ( 4 years ).#
My rating for this visit is 5* however i gave it a 3* rating as you always feel that a visit to the Frozen Mop can go either way.
