We went for the first time for years and at first we were impressed with the ambience and how busy it seemed to be. We located a table and menus were brought. However, whilst the food was quite good the service really does let this place down. We were sat near the Kitchen so we could hear and see how... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful for example we found that our table was uneven. The waitress was very helpful by getting a few napkins... More

I've been here with my wife twice since moving to Edgworth recently. On both occassions we've had nice food (although I wouldn't call it gastro-pub) but very poor service. First time was a Friday evening and as far we could tell only 2 people working, both trying to juggle manning the bar and bringing out food. The result was a... More

Excellent lunch in a very pleasant dog friendly pub but, if driving, approach via Entwistle station road rather than Entwistle Reservoir where the road peters out. (Good morning coffee too.)

Booked a table for 3 at 6pm and arrived at the pub about 20 min before the reservation and it wasn't very busy. We spotted our reserved table easily, let the assistant manager know we were there and ordered drinks but weren't given a menu. No-one came to serve us and after waiting a while we found menus and ordered... More
