“Pleasant meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

We had the Sunday carvery and was very pleased with the choice of meat and vegatables.
The staff were very pleasant, though inside was very crowded, but we enjoyed sitting outside after our meals, enjoying a quiet drink.
Lovely garden and suitable for all ages.

“Ok pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

Went for dinner at this pub, rang to book a table the food was ok but took some time in arriving but they were busy in the evening. The food portions were just right. Setting of the pub was god and you have ponys wandering about the area outside. The pub itself was well laid out welcoming and friendly

Thank you for your review here on Tripadvisor.

I can assure you that the experience you had at the time of your visit was not the norm for us here at the Alice Lisle. Whilst is isn't an excuse, the day that you came to us was the busiest day of the year which resulted in us having run out of afew items on our menu. Obviously, lessons were learnt from that service in terms of ordering and we have not experienced that problem again so I hope that you will return to us and try our extensive food offering.

We have a large main menu, sandiwch menu for lunchtimes and a specials board which boasts local ingredients.

If you would like to talk to me further about your experience please do so on 01425474700.

Thanks again for your review.

“Great place... great staff...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

Lovely pub, inside and out, .. alongside a large fishing lake.
We visited on a warm Friday evening, and ate at a table outside. We found the staff friendly, and very attentive and the service was quick.
There was a fish and chip tea offer available until the end of June, but we opted to try two of the burger meals instead and they were great!
We have cycled past this pub a few times and have seen how busy it gets - Now we understand why!! ( and yes, we will be back )

“Excellent Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

This was my first visit again for three years because I had heard the food was very good. It was not just good, it was excellent. The only downside was that the bar and waiting staff were too busy chatting to give the otherwise excellent Pub a five star rating from me.
It will not put me off visiting again because the food side made up for the poor service. Always an excellent setting and a little more effort could make so much difference.
