“Nice place but average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

The service here is always good and the staff friendly and attentive. The starters are generally good but the mains always seem to disappoint - uninspiring and expensive for what they are. The desserts look good though so you might be better off ordering two starters and a dessert! OK for a meal out but wouldn't recommend it for a special occasion as the food just isn't up to scratch. This serves as a reasonable family venue for the area but there are better locations for couples however as a family restaurant I can see its appeal.

“Quality dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

It is always a pleasure to visit The Kingfisher. Visiting just after Christmas the place was, as usual, very busy. Despite not having pre-booked we were shown to a table immediately. The food, as ever, delicious and very good value, and the staff efficient and friendly.

“Too many excuses.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

This pub / restaurant was chosen after reading many reviews about the food and the fact that it was a convenient location for all the family to meet. The beautiful location aside, I'm afraid I cannot recommend this place. Yes, the pub itself is clean and well laid out, but the service was slow and the food - well. The starters came quickly and for saying they averaged £5 each some were better than others. Some of the party had massive almost main course sized portions and others wouldn't have filled a sparrow. After nearly an hours wait the main course arrived. This was a mixture of Sunday roasts and food ordered off the main menu. All of the roasts without expection were dreadful. The vegetables were stone cold, the roast potatoes rock hard and the gravy starting to congeal. At £10.95 for the roast this was not good. The manager was spoken to and made excuse after excuse, "oh we're busy" "what do you want me to do about it?". He offered to start over, but after waiting nearly an hour we were all really hungry so this wasn't an option. I have worked in the catering industry and I have never used the excuse "we're busy". There is no excuse for keeping people waiting that long for their main course and absolutely no excuse for serving cold food other than slow and useless kitchen staff. If you know your busy - get more staff. Then we had to wait ages again for our plates to be cleared away. Desserts came eventually - although not everything on the menu was available (same as on the dinner menu - more excuses, well buy more stock then) which disappointed some people in the party, and were nothing to write home about. Overall a very disappointing experience. Don't bother.
