We nearly didn't go here due to so many bad reviews on Google, with the Trip Advisor reviews being better, which is why we went in the end as I find reviews on here to be more balanced. Having had such a good experience today, I thought a should leave a top review. We went with friends as a group... More

Been here a few times because there's always service with a smile. Sophie & Lucy go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Good atmosphere, regular live music. Good food and variety of drinks. Suits all age groups. We will be back.

After a busy Easter weekend we decided to have a quiet pub lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The Huntsman provide a nice venue with friendly staff, great food and nice wine. There was a magician doing table-to-table entertainment and the price was very reasonable. Well recommended.

I had a great time today, the staff were really nice, the food was great for the price and it has a great family vibe. I got the ribs which was a really good choice as I enjoyed it and it filled me up. If you're planning on going Aimee and Sophie we're a great help and I'm sure they'd... More

It was a good start to the Generous George but cracks started to appear in their service with food taking longer and longer to get to the table. 1 hour to feed two people two main courses is not acceptable. I cant stress enough that i hate bad reviews especially ones local to me, but in this instance i feel... More

Been twice with kids and several times with mates just drinking. Drinking and ordering food on own not had an issue. Decent pub. Eating as a family of four twice, the service has been slow. First twice was opening weekend as rebranded Generous George. To be fair we were advised of a 40 min wait. Then while 40 mins were... More
