Warm welcome from Ann and the team and comfortable seating prepared and provided for the group. Excellent breakfast, mostly full English and a couple of continental. A full buffet service for cereals and fruit juices, toast and bagels followed by the cooked breakfasts which had generous servings with a variety of tasty ingredients. We all had a hearty meal and...

This is where our love affair with Beefeater began many moons ago and whenever we around this area, this is a must visit for us. Some of the food may seem over priced but the quality and more importantly the quantity served is very good. High recommended the Mixed Grill although it's a shame they have removed the lamb chop...

Four family + friend had Sunday evening meal with wine. Steaks very nice, chips excellent and less greasy than many places. Wine (Malbec) went very well with the food. Sorbet was too sweet. Price rather high compared with other local food pubs.

Traditional style and comfortable with very nice staff. The chefs really know how to cook their meat. My chicken was just perfect and my dad's steak was cooked exactly to his liking. I ordered the newly added apple crumble with toffee sauce and unfortunately, the topping drowned in the toffee sauce so I didn't get that crunch on the top... More

We stayed at the premier inn next door for two nights as we were attending a car show near by on the Sunday. We arrived to the somewhat dimly lit Downshire arms having pre booked the table for both the Friday and Saturday nights. There was just the four of us for Friday and we were shown our table by...

I have always had good food here and the price is very standard across the Beefeater chains. I did find it lacked some items off the menus that larger venues had. The staff have always been lovely service does tend to be slow.

Stayed next door at the Premier inn. Not seen the girls for 18 months so there was lots of champers flowing. The staff sorted us some ice buckets, gave us some great info about what to do and where to go for Ascot. Evening food was good, but breakfast was very much required and they didn't disappoint us.

When we arrived we had a half hour wait to be seated at a table but this was not an issue. Once seated, we had a lovely waitress named Jess. She was so attentive and always smiling and even took the time at the end of our meal when it was very quiet in the restaurant to have a chat... More
