Visited today with my grandparents, I also run a pub within the company so it's always interesting seeing how others work. Food was served perfect and prompt, staff was friendly with great service, pub clean in and out, displays were great, carpark clean, manager is doing a brill job by the looks of it! Sometimes people overlook the small details!... More

Chain style cheap and cheerful food and drinks. The staff were helpful, prompt and cheerful. Couldn't be too bad as we went back, at least once more.

Visited just now with my husband and adult daughter - its her birthday today. Our soup starters were fine - but my daughters mushrooms were undercooked. Had to take these back to the manageress - in fairness a new portion was provided which was much better. Enter the three Hunters Chicken - what a joke! The chicken was as tough... More

Why are they always short of staff serving in the Bar? The bar staff have not been trained to recognise who is next in the queue for drinks. Before you peruse the menu check if they have run out of staples like bread or rice or curry. If you are lucky enough to choose a meal they can actually supply,... More

Had a really nice night at The Walkford, friendly staff and the table I had booked was ready for us (my 70th birthday) The pub looked very inviting, warm and attractive Christmas decorations so it looked as though all was going to plan. The other members of my small party were more than happy with their food and I have... More

How can a pub that is just 5 minutes walk from the nearest shop run out of rice? Chips were the alternative, no apologies, on another occasion they had no mango chutney, they need to start thinking about the customer, perhaps we should call to ask if any shopping was required before we arrive next time - poor service is...

Having eaten here before we wondered if it would still be the same. It was if anything BETTER . The food was piping hot which is something other carveries should take note. The portions of Turkey,Beef or Ham were superb and being a bit of a pig I tried a piece of each. Glorious, and the hot vegetables as much... More

Went in for a meal last Wednesday (16th November) and the food was absolutely stunning. Me and my father had 2 of their new burgers and to make things even better they were buy one get one free but I would definitely pay full price. The food came out fast and the servers were happy and willing to help with... More

Took my elderly parents for Sunday Lunch and the quality was excellent as well as great value for money. Staff friendly and efficient. Ok the place could do with some money spent on it but for us the place was just right.
