Had lunch at the Poppy Fields and it was an enjoyable meal. As we were not big eaters at lunch time, the menu offered light bites such as jacket potatoes and sandwiches and it suited us very well. The service was prompt although the waitress did forget to get our drinks (she was very apologetic) and the food turned up fairly quickly. Portion size was good (we all had jacket potatoes with different fillings) and the food was well presented. The restaurant was new so the decor was in good order and the place have a casual and friendly feel to it. All in all, it was good value for money and will not hesitate to go back and try different dishes.

Note: as this restaurant is very popular, it is advisable to book in advance.

Dear Fierce

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

We are delighted you enjoyed your lunch with us and pleased you noticed that we cater for all appetites.
Even after 4 months of opening we are still overwhelmed with our popularity and booking is a good idea although we do leave a few tables free for those guests that walk in too.

We look forward to seeing you again soon

Thank you

Having booked table for 6 lst problem inadequate parking when asked at the main door about parking i was told every table has adequate places even though empty tables accounted for 15 people. Food as with chain pubs is as expected steak is sold to cheap to be eaten we did get this taken of the bill. Not a good experience may get better having not been open long. But that car park is a big problem.

First of all, we asked for a table for 2 and although there were many tables free we still had to wait 15 minutes to be seated.We ordered a jacket potato and a tuna and prawn salad from the specials board. We had to wait about 30 minutes for our food, and what a waste of time! Frozen 'Iceland' prawns on a soggy salad. The jacket potato was clearly microwaved from frozen and plonked on a plate with a few rocket leaves! We wish we had stayed at home! Dont bother!

Dear Wren

Thanks for taking the time to leave us your review of your recent visit to The Poppy Fields

We have been working hard since the opening and obviously disappointed to see that you did not have a fantastic experience on this occasion.

We would like to try to put things right and will send you a private message in an effort to contact you and resolve this matter with us directly.

Thank you
