Me and my husband tried out the acton arms a couple of weeks ago, we were mesmerised at how professional the staff were. Three young ladies were working on a Sunday lunchtime, each one greeted us and smiled, the blond lady took us to our table and was very informative and polite. The service for food did not take too long at all and the food was delicious! A very satisfying visit indeed. 10/10 all round! well done acton arms!

Me and my mother returned to The Acton Arms again recently for the third time. The two previous times the waiting staff were slow to take orders, left us waiting at the bar and struggling to get the bill & the wait for food ( regardless what you order has been a minimum of 30 min ).
We thought we would give them another chance!! Never again-it was worse....

This time we didnt order hot food after waiting 30 min first visit ( when we only ordered soup ) second time round it was slightly busy and we ordered fish and chips ( 40 min wait )

This visit we ordered sandwiches, thought maybe ten min wait. Try 55 min!!

There were 3 other people who left after waiting 40 min for salads and we complained after 45 min. the waitress was brill- very apologetic and sympathetic and kindly offered us half our money back ( we accepted ) but unfortunately it didnt make the situation acceptable.

Something really needs to change here.. the food comes out far to slow.. Im not chef but i have worked in a kitchen & it is obviously something is very wrong here..

If you are not in a hurry and dont mind waiting ridiculous times for simple food then go here otherwise dont waste your time (literally ).

We wont be returning again.

My husband and I visited the Acton Arms taking our 2 young children, we were planning on just having a couple drinks but our girls were having such a lovely time playing in the secure & well equipped beer garden that we decided to stay longer & eat.
We walked into the restaurant where we were greeted straight away by a very polite young lady. We were seated & asked if we would like a drink, on her return she bought some pictures & crayons for the girls (such a lovely thoughtful touch!!)..
The food was excellent value with it been two for one & was delicious!! We will definitely visit their again soon as we couldn't fault a thing. Thank you Acton Arms, keep up the good work!

Food was just about ok, steak well cooked but service was poor and drinks prices were over the top 3,10 for a small glass of wine
Not offered a wine list,and had to search for staff to get bill.
Not good value and will not return

We pulled in to this inviting pub on the side of the road at 5.30pm on a Sunday evening after seeing the '2 for 1 available now' sign on the side of the road, but we were disappointed to understand after reciveing our menus that they only served Sunday lunch. I felt we were misslead. Therefore we paid for our drinks and left. They were stopping serving food at 6 pm. It was a shame, especially this time of year in the holiday season.

When visiting the Acton arms we were greeted by a polite waitress, that took us to a table in the main restaurant, it was laid out perfectly and took a drinks order there and then, the drink arrived immediately after, once we order the food it didn't take long to come out and was a generous portion, the service was perfect checking to see if the meal was sufficient and offering us more drinks, not leaving the table for anything. To top it off the desserts were amazing i had the lemon tart and my partner had the cheesecake, portion size was perfect and then we were brought coffees.... all in all a perfect night out

Staff welcoming and smiling, asked if looking for a table for two (Sunday lunch time), not been here before but could see a number of tables occupied in what looked like the main restaurant area, although not full, the rest of the area was empty but all tables set out for dining, it was just after one o'clock. We said "Yes please" and were immediately led to the furthest corner of the empty room to be seated at a little round bar table. The service was efficient and pleasant, when our food was served it was almost impossible to cope on the tiny table but when we asked to move to a larger table it was done swiftly and with an acceptance that the round bar table was not really big enough (then why use them when there are so many tables available?). The waiting time for our food was acceptable and the roast beef very tasty although the veg a little too aldente for our liking and the beef a little too rare for my husbands liking (perhaps an effort to offer rare or medium beef?) although the portion size was ample the size of the plate was too small, breakfast plates are for breakfast, a dinner plate is for dinner, not more food, bigger plates! We would definately give the Acton Arms another chance but would be ready to refuse the tiny bar table and keep our fingers crossed for a change of heart with the size of the plates. However we are still mystified as to why we were placed on our own in a deserted area and not seated with other guests in the main restaurant; afterall if we had wanted to be in our own company we could have stayed at home!
