Had a gorgeous home cooked meal here tonight. This is my first visit since the new owners took over. The atmosphere was very friendly and welcoming. I went with my mum and we are both gluten free. The staff went out of their way to make us a delicious meal that we could eat. I can honestly say that was... More

We've taken our cycling group here twice now and it just gets better and better! the waitresses give a warm welcome of: "how are you all" and really mean it! The service is rapid; the food is high in quality and low in price [affordable to us retired folk]. The very first time, we were looking for an alternative venue... More

We throught we would give this place a try again, we were told it had opened again. Driving into the carpark, the place looked the same as before, except new umbrellas on the decking. Walking in the main entrance everything looked nice and clean. In fact everywhere was bright and cheerful, we looked at the menu expecting the usual pub... More

2 years ago we tried the Sunday roast here and wasn't impressed, we never went back. We drove past and noticed that the pub was now open again with new owners and what a difference they've made. We were greeted with a very warm welcome, the service was great, the food was home made and delicious. The soup was fab... More

The recently re-opened Panborough has been refreshed and given a make over making it much lighter and airier. Lunch for 3 was very good - we had 3 different mezzes and the owner was sitting nearby doing a tasting of a vegetable chilli which was given the thumbs up. It was good to see the place coming to life again... More

We'd driven by The Panborough many times but it had been closed down for a while; we noticed a few weeks ago that it was open, so popped in for quick bite and a drink. The new owners are doing a gradual opening and relying on locals telling them what they would like to see most. At the moment, they... More

time has finally caught up with this place used to be such a good village local but over recent times most of the loyal regulars have gone elsewhere due to the poor running and attitude to the locals. Hopefully the lesson has been learned by the present owners and that it will be bought by a freindlier owner that values... More
