“Lovely pub shame about the food!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

The Seaton lane inn is beautifully decorated and has a lovely atmosphere but when it comes to food it's very disappointing. On our most recent visit I ordered the braised lamb which although nicely presented consisted of maybe a forkful at most of meat and the rest fat. Service was poor as staff failed to clear the table and we were left sitting for over 30mins with dirty plates before we eventually just got up and left.
This is not the first time we have had a bad experience with food here - they also do the worst crumble I have ever had!!!
We go in expecting great things and unfortunately always leave feeling extremely disappointed.

“Rubbish”

We visited for a family meal in March and we were really disappointed. Overall Poor service, poor food and not a good experience......we left feeling totally ripped off. If you want a nice steak look elsewhere!!

“Lovely restaurant. Would eat there again.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

A group of 9 of us, which included 2 children and a baby, ate here for my birthday in January. We ate at 5pm so we had a choice of the lunch menu (which is delicious, has lots of choice and very reasonable prices, and also a special 2 course menu for £11.95. The food was delicious, hot and well-cooked (apart from the chicken was a bit too well-cooked). Apart from that, everything was lovely and I will be returning.

“reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

Thought might be a little expensive from what I had heard but lunch time menu quite expansive and reasonably priced. Service of a high standard and very friendly.
