Came for Sunday lunch today and it was superb! The roast beef was amazing (& huge), the plaice was very tasty ( tho unf had quite a few bones). Service was exceptional - everyone was v efficient and friendly, despite the fact it was busy....The friendly server suggested I download the Covid app and register - unf I wasn't able to download it so wasn't able to register. That would be my only feedback, that staff should ask customers to fill in a form if they can't register. Fabulous place, highly recommend it!More

Getting it a bowl of water from...my dog as well extremely welcoming. That's the pizza I had was as authentic as an Italian pizza in Italy it was that good.

Had a fantastic lunch today. Great food, COVID safe, option to use the app or just order with the waiting staff. The squid starter was very tasty. I would add that every single member of staff was not only polite and helpful, but drop dead...gorgeous, I think they've hired models during lockdown...so that was a real treat. Great working lunch with great food and I really recommend the Sav Blanc.More

We had a really disappointing lunch here today. It took about ten minutes to be seated despite the restaurant not being full. The ordering process was a nightmare - the app didn’t work for us and the staff weren’t that helpful about ordering in person....Everything was incredibly slow to arrive and when it did, my food was cold. When I asked the staff to heat it up they were really brusque with me and slammed it down when it came back. It’s a shame as I’ve enjoyed eating here before but I would give it a miss from now on. I don’t think it would be fair to blame it on COVID either given that many restaurants are operating much better systems.More

Delightful. Fresh out is quarantine I was craving Sunday Lunch. Took mum, we have the dough balls to start and then roast beef Sunday lunch. Food was absolutely amazing but what made it really special was the people. Charlene, the manager, was just great -...every pub needs someone like her - friendly, genuine, super efficient. Will definitely be backMore
