7 of us went here on Sun 14th for my sisters 40th birthday meal, despite a helium balloon, a flashing 40 yr old badge and banners galore......not one waitress mentioned it was a 'special birthday'..........you have to go up to the bar to order, our starters arrived in about 15 mins, which we came to realise was super fast, we had to wait a further 70 mins for our mains.
After 45 mins we asked where they were and were told they were really busy and we were next! Obviously a fib has had to wait a further 25 mins!!!
Three of us had the roast, the meat was dried at the edges, the roast potatoes soggy and the carrots obviously frozen or from a tin - yuck. One of the party had the seafood paella and the portion were tiny.
Staff, friendly-ish, but had an air of not really caring. During the 2.5 hours we were there, the fire alarm went off 3 times! All the staff ignored it. We ordered puddings and had to wait a further 30 mins, the table next to us started to walk out as had waited over 50 mins for their puddings, the waitress brought them out and didn't even apologise!
When we were paying we were asked how things had been, we told them, a young waiter advised that as they had been quiet the previous weekend the manager told 2 of the staff not to come in. Obviously a mistake.
A huge disappointment.

Been here twice recently and afraid won't rush back, unless its just for something and chips. Our most recent meal with 'vegetables' was pretty poor - rubbery & tasteless carrots. Having said that, wine is good value and staff very friendly & efficient.

Friendly staff, menu fine, food very nice, I liked the way they had smaller portions for the smaller appetite! Very good value for money, quick service and pleasant staff. Portions were perfect too.

Don't expect anything more than simple chain pub food in a chain food setting. The layout is nice but sadly all very synthetic.

Had a meal at The Lintot last night. There were seven of us and a two course meal cost each of us about £11. The portion sizes were more than adequate and the quality was good. We asked for a particular bottle of wine priced at £10.50 and they recommended a different one which was £2 cheaper. Very impressed. The service was good at the bar and we were warned as soon as we went in that there was only one chef working and that there would be a 30 minute wait for food. Most places take your money then tell you about the delay. I would definitely recommend this pub for a good quality, value for money night out.
