Went for a meal for a friend's birthday. The service was very slow and it was not that busy. It took an hour and half for our main courses to come. Worse of all, my chicken was raw in the middle !!! Wtf

Came with my family for a meal using the Tesco clubcard vouchers which we have used here for the last few years. When it came to paying the bill we were told that these vouchers are now not valid. I expect there are alot of users of these vouchers and the waitress told us previous customers had the same situation the other week and we should get in touch with Tesco.
What I find moraly wrong with this establishment is that they new about this for at least a month and yet there is no notice about it to see and thay also had the chance when I phoned up to book to mention it and also the staff could have mentioned it when we came in but no the management must of decided to take our money first and then mention it.
We have been going there for the last 20 years but I think this will have been the last time we visit and we will spread the word with our family, friends and work collegues about the new management.

Stayed November 2013, travelled with family

The Dog & Partridge is our local eatery, and we were very disappointed to visit back in September and having to leave without eating due to the food being terrible. We visited again and things seemed to have improved, but on our next visit, despite the food being good it took an hour from ordering to actually getting served. We returned last Sunday, and things seemed to be greatly improved. The food and service was very good. Hopefully things will get back to normal and we can enjoy our local again on a regular basis.

Having used the Dog and Partridge for drinks and bar snacks during quiet periods quite a few times over the past few months, we decided as a family of five to have Sunday dinner there. Big mistake. Right from the get-go the place looked ill-equipped to deal with anything - bar area untidy, no old drinks glasses collected, newspapers all over the tables and floor, bar staff dealt with clients in their line of site not the person next in line, drinks forgotten, glasses for wine forgotten, and that was just the bar area. When seated, we waited an age to have our order taken, an age for it to arrive, no staff in our part of the restaurant to order drinks from, and one hot starter served cold. for the main course, which again we had to wait an age for, I had to go in search of cutlery myself, and one of the meals was cold, and when it was brought back it looked very much like it had been cobbled together from other people's leftovers. Another meal was barely warm enough to eat. The only disctraction from our own annoyance was listening to others in the restaurant complaining about their food and service, and watching staff deliver food and drink to the wrong tables. We were given a significant discount but that just isn't the point - The Dog And Partridge wasted our evening, with what is clearly an organisation in chaos. We will be actively recommending that people AVOID this restaurant for the time being

Went for lunch with some friends and have to say the food was excellent but the service was so slow that I am unlikely to return. This is a shame as the surroundings and the food (when it eventually arrived) were good. There did not seem to be enough staff on duty to cope with the relatively low numbers of customers present.
