Good food and service

Considering there was an offer on, I expected the pub to be busier, but it was a midweek night, so maybe that was why it was quieter. The food was very good, and Thursday is 2 fish dishes for £12, which two of our party enjoyed. The service was excellent. I haven't been here for years, and the... read more

The mark of any good restaurant or pub experience is the service and last night was excellent here. I think everyone had fallen off the dry Jan bandwagon so it was very busy. The manger was excellent and although we just walked in, set us up with drinks at the bar while he set up a table of two. The... More

I've driven past many times but this was my first visit. Plenty of parking spaces, although another customer parked very close - difficult to get the car door open. The extension on the original pub is very clever - high ceiling gives light & space. It still has a public bar feel, and the other customers were dressed very informally.... More

We were a party of 14, celebrating my mother-in-laws 92 birthday. We had to pre order our food, but the staff were very accommodating when some of our party wanted to change their order. Good selection on the menu, with something for everyone, and they cater for dietary needs, offering a gluten free and dairy free selection. The food arrived... More

I can only review as I find and read the reviews on here after we had been. Used to visit this place many years ago but have not been since. It was new years day and very quiet after the celebrations of NYE. We had a warm welcome from the young lady serving and more or less choice of tables.... More

We enjoyed a quick lunch here on Christmas Eve. It seemed family friendly and was quite cosy and decorated for Christmas. The food was filling and moderately priced but otherwise not especially memorable --in fact I have forgotten what we had ! Soup and sandwiches I think.

Waiting time was seemingly long, though we visited at lunchtime where the seating area was confined to one area of the restaurant so it appeared a lot busier. Couldn't fault the food however, and they serve delicious coffee. Reasonable price and in a great location. I look forward to coming back at Christmas!

We dropped into the Black Tiles for the first time for lunch. It was busy but not rammed and as we were there after 1pm some people were already leaving. Our order was taken swiftly enough and my drink appeared quickly. Then came the wait. Perhaps it was our fault for going straight to a main. We waited over half... More

Good for summer days to eat at the garden. Do not expect too much on the food. We have been few times as its cheap. Pate is nice, rest just ok. Service slow.
