“Poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

We are regular visitors to the pub as we live locally and usually the service is good but we arrived last night for my birthday celebration 14 of us including 3 children as we have done on 4 other occasions when we have had a birthday in the past 12 months, we were seated in the new restaurant area as requested so the children are not in the bar area. I pre ordered our food earlier in the week the main meals arrived and the side orders i ordered with 2 meals did not arrive, we asked for them still they did not turn up we asked again although the meals were nearly finished by this time they brought one of them the other never arrived. We ordered deserts which came at about 9.45pm just as we were eating them a waitress arrived and told us the children should have been out of the pub by 9.30pm. We complained as we have never been told this on the other occasions as we have stayed late in the restaurant area with children we were told to speak to Angela the landlady if she came down from upstairs great customer service (not), this spoilt my birthday meal somewhat as we felt uncomfortable as we were still eating at the time. We have spent a lot of money in the pub on meals and drinks when we have visited, but from now on i will be going elsewhere for our family celebrations. Beware if you have children with you may be made to feel unwelcome and make sure you get what you order.

“Visits to Yorkshire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Whenever i travel to Yorkshire i make a point at eating at The Droppingwell. The food is always well cooked and presented beautifully with good sized portions. The management ans staff are always bright and cheerful and dressed immaculately. I wish it was nearer so that i could eat there more regularly.
