“Fly in food and told 2 waitresses and got a half hearted "sorry".”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Been here today for tea. It was quite quiet when we ordered but the food took a while to arrive.
The food tasted okay until we found a fly in the food. This put us off our meals. I told a waitress who said "sorry".I was expecting an apology from the manager or chef. None came.
When paying we mentioned it again but nothing was really done . A half hearted apology. I have complained once before in a restaurant so I am not a big complainer. To me a fly is a big issue because it is a hygiene problem. It's obviously not high on their agenda.

“Top choice any day of the week”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

We regularly visit the new hall tavern, it has a homely inviting atmosphere, and the food is to die for. Never disappointed and excellent value for money. If you don't want to break the bank try the burger, its huge, tasty and incredible value for money. It's pub food done right!

“`Local` pub (with friendly locals!)”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Friendly `local` atmosphere serving a good variety of food at sensible prices. The Monday - Thursday specials are well worth checking and are good quality and value at under £10 (correct at 11/04/2013). Good choice of ales for that true `British Pub` feeling as well as usual choice of wines and spirits. Attentive and friendly staff.

“Good food good service shame about the setting”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Went with another couple and as always the staff were friendly and efficient. The food is excellent and great value and we will go again. The pub is however let down by the appearance the internal decor and there was a distinct unpleasant smell from the bench seat. With a redocoration and a refurb this could be the best in the area and considering that there are some good ones nearby that is quite an accolade.

“Impressive first visit”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

My partner and I met up with my son and his girlfriend last night at The New Hall Tavern. We had four different meals..seafood tagliatelle, steak and kidney pie, cheese and onion pie and the chicken and black pudding roulade. All of us were very impressed with our meals. The chips and veg were fresh and cooked properly. I didn't see any problems with decor or cleanliness as in a previous review.
Will definitely visit again
