“Good honest food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

Last night was our second visit to the meadowlark and agin was not disappointed, the food was tasty, nice and hot and the food was delivered on nice hot plates. The staff where so nice and made the whole evening lovely, they where very helpful. Always smiling and nothing was to much trouble. The menu is limited but the food very tasty with lots of it. All courses where delivered a nice time apart we didn't feel we where rushed a very good experience we will be going back.

“Very Pleasant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

Stopped off for a Saturday lunch - didn't book.

Very nicely laid out inside, plenty of space between tables and a good, airy atmosphere.
Service was prompt, polite and efficient.
The "Two For One" offer certainly makes it an attractive deal.

The menu choices were very good considering it's a pub and not a restaurant.
The Specials Board added a few more choices.

Leaflets for several other discounted meal options were on the table and looked very good.

The food arrived quickly and was piping hot - clearly freshly cooked.

All in all, it's just about what pub eating should be- hot, wholesome food at an affordable price.

We will be back.

“Pleasantly surprised”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Visited for a birthday celebration and there was 8 of us. We had pre booked a table. Having read the reviews I was apprehensive but upon arrival but a very nice and efficient waitress greeted us. Drinks were promply served and the waitress for our table was excellent and very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was good value and was typical pub grub but certainly no complaints. The bill was amazingly reasonable. Would certainly go back for a simple no hassle meal.

“Awful service awful food! Such a shame for a pub in such a nice position!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

The staff were terrible. They didn't cater to our needs at all. We might as well not have been there. Staff were also quite rude and seemed preoccupied with everything other than work. And the food was either raw or over cooked. It was such a shame as we don't go out to eat often, for our first meal out in a while it was just disappointing. I live in walking distance and will not be visiting again!
