Came for sunday lunch and had one of the best i've ever had. The food was fantastic, beef especially , followed with a scrumptious sticky toffee pudding. The pub was extremely busy but were greeted by the landlord(?) who was really friendly and helpful. If the Strickland Arms were closer to home then I'd be coming back next week! surprised by reviews below but if the pub isnt as good as it used to be then I wish I had been earlier to see how the food could be even better!

Went for a meal in dec 2011, and was very impressed with food, also dog friendly which is a must for us, so we planned another visit which was today feb 12th 2012. and very busy as usual (good sign)and we ordered the same as last time as we enjoyed it so much. service a little slow and the meal was no were near as good as last time, veg hard and meat too tough, so a little bit disappointed
have they changed the chef/manager?
Was going to give another chance, thought maybe a one off but listening to others maybe not?

The Strickland Arms has been our local for over 4 years now and we have really fond memories of it, but we have been so disappointed on our last two visits that we probably won't be going again. The lovely managers of the past seem to have gone and there's a definite change in customer service standards since - no more friendly welcomes and the last time we went we waited for ages to be served, having asked if we could place our order at the bar and been told no. We waited, patiently sipped our drinks and waited. Still no on came. When my husband went to see if he could order again he was simply told 'no'! We don't mind waiting if they are busy, but there was not even a friendly smile or acknowledgement, and quite frankly we began to feel that they were doing us a favour by coming to take our order. When you work hard and want a little treat on a Sunday you expect more than that and as others have said, there are so many other nice places near by we'll just try one of these in future. Needless to say by the time we'd finished our drinks our order still hadn't been taken, so we paid and left. Hungry!

sometimes very good, sometimes very bad. Inconsistency in a restaurant is not good when there are so many good places to choose from.
