“The Bloomsbury Pub”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

My fiance and my mum wanted to go somewhere for a proper sunday roast, so thought we'd try the Bloomsbury seeing as the reviews on Trip Advisor were very good. These reviews are spot on!! As soon as we walked in we were made really welcome by the staff and we had a good laugh and joke with them. We sat down and ordered our Roast dinners (pork belly, lamb & chicken) but we decided to go large as we were all famished. We only waited about 15-20 mins and by crikey when the plates came out they were large! We did our best and ate most of our dinners, the wasn't one thing that we'd change about the food. (we did ask for extra gravy though). It was freshly and very well cooked!! The young lady who served us put the rest in a carton for us so that we could take it home for our doggy - it was too good to waste! (The dog woofed it down too hahaha) :o) During our entire time here the staff were friendly, chatty and really attentive. We also met the owners and got along with them too! I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Its been a long time since we have been to such a nice, sociable and friendly pub! Thanks guys!! We are coming back next sunday for another roast!!

“Excellent sunday lunch”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Probably the best Sunday lunch we've had in a pub / restaurant. The Bloomsbury has a lovely relaxed atmosphere, the staff are very friendly, and the food is superb!

“Great lunch in a family friendly environment”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

We (3 adults, 4 kids) arrived around 1 this Sunday to a very busy Bloomsbury without booking..foolishly. But a very friendly welcome and instant reshuffling of tables followed to accommodate us. The staff maintained their friendly and accommodating approach to us and our 'range' of kids throughout our visit and we felt very well looked after despite how busy it was.
We ordered the full range of roasts (chicken wrapped in bacon, pork belly, lamb and beef) and all were served quickly.
The pork belly was delicious, tender and crispy in the right places, served with plenty of perfect veg, real gravy, a miniature yorkshire pud, and apple sauce. Difficult to finish, but a pleasure to attempt to do so.
The chicken, lamb and beef likewise were all tender well flavoured and again served with a good range of well prepared veg, gravy and miniature yorkshire pud.
All diners presented a pleasantly plump glow by the end, and they were quite happy to box up our remainders to take with us.
Unfortunately we were unable to attempt any puddings, but with the appropriate preparation before our next visit (which will be soon) this will certainly be on the agenda.
On the basis of 1 visit I will certainly go back, as my experience from start to finish was great.

“Proper pub with proper food”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

I have been to this pub on multiple occasions and every time I have eaten I have thoroughly enjoyed it. One of my favorite meals I have had was the handmade steak pie. The pastry was beautiful, the mash was deliciously creamy and to top it off the gravy was full of the steak flavor. And the roast dinner! There is a generous selection of vegetables and the roast potatoes are to die for! You will not leave this place disappointed with the quality or quantity of the food.

“Sunday Lunch- Excellent !!”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Thought we'd try the Bloomsbury for Sunday Lunch on the 15th Feb after seeing the reviews here, we weren't disappointed. The meat was tender served with a host of different vegetables and the portions are very generous.
Met the chef on the day in his very smart Chef's outfit, looks to take the job seriously.
Credit also to the friendly and efficient family and other staff who run the Bloomsbury and serve the food and drinks.
We'll be back again to sample the menu in the evening.
