“Nice food ........poor service !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

Went for a drink and the first member of staff was very polite and welcoming, we decided to stay for a meal.
The following shift of 4 members of staff came on, one was only interested on playing on their phone and discussing Halloween costumes, new lad was wandering around bar aimlessly , one young man standing behind bar doing paperwork, there was no food check , took a while for our table to be cleared with the final waitress making no acknowledgement that we were even there!!! We even had to ask for the bill twice , I wouldn't mind if they were busy , but we were the only ones eating ! Food was good but let down with very poor service .

Excellent modern british food. Don't forget to try the desserts.
Food served all day from noon.
Main+dessert+drink = £23.

“Nice food - slow inattentive service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Have visited this restaurant / hotel 3 times for Sunday lunch. All three occasions the service has been awful. Same problems each time.

Wait 10-15 minutes after beeing seated to get a drink
Drink and it takes 10-15 minutes before it is brought to your table
You order food, this comes in a decent time but then you wait a while again for your table to be cleared in between starter and main being delivered
Don't expect to be asked if you want another drink even if your glass is empty

Food and menu is good - waiting staff are inattentive and slow.

“Good Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Went to the Throckmorton Arms for Saturday lunch, and enjoyed and enjoyed a very good meal with excellent service, with a smile. Good food and lovely surroundings. What a great way to spend a Saturday. , Way, Way, above the usual pub grub. Stephen Newbrook the manager was very obliging and friendly, Trevor the server was happy to discuss the menu. The views around the pub are quite breathtaking, and the patio seating is plentiful and comfy. The Pub also boasts 10 on suite rooms and you can take your dog with prior arrangement.. What more could you wish for.
