|Went to this Pub as a party of four on a Thursday in mid August 2010 in the early evening. Plenty of available tables at that time and the food and ale selection was good (as mentioned in other reviews). Once ordered the food came quite quickly and was good bar food quality with plenty of choice and even some deals for two or three course dinners.|
That was very good. The service though left a lot to be desired and let the whole place down. It was like a Tommy Cooper evening. The persons on the bar who were taking orders both for food and drink had no sense of who was next in line, most times they would go twice from one end of the bar to the other for glasses, straws, the requested drink and then for any thing to top it up. At this pub they use four terminals by which to place orders and any bar staff can use any one. When an order has been placed and the bar staff in question might have occasion to put something (like a house wine bottle back) they could come back to another terminal and so completely disrupt the serving order. It took over 10 minutes to place an order when they were not busy and the queues at the terminals when we left (still only 7:30pm) were enormous. Then as if all this wasn't bad enough, the persons who took your order also served your food so yet precipitating another change of places at the bar terminals. Crazy. Then when we wanted coffee at the end they could only serve decaffinated coffee because 'the coffee machine had broken'! Can you really believe that a pub of this size has no reserve mechanism for something as simple as coffee making? We even asked if they had Nescafe but no. It then took 12 minutes to pay at the end and that only by gesticulating and calling out at the right moment - something which probably put someone else further down the queue. Then to crown the experience the bill made no mention of one of our party having a meal from the two course deal (though the discount turned out to be less than a pound) and we as the customer were asked how much we wanted to pay! Earlier this same member of the staff been prepared to subtract over nine pounds!
This pub needs a manager. It hasn't got one at the moment. I'd like to go back because the food is good, the staff are friendly and the surroundings are nice too. I don't think I will go back.

|It's not a pub, but it is a very nice restaurant in what was once an old pub. Better than most for quality, choice and price of meals. Good well served real ales. Plenty of outside seating. I'll be back!|

|Went with friends as a meeting place half way between us so the visit extended from coffee at 11:15am through to end of lunch at 2:30pm so saw a lot of this pub!. Excellent parking, attractive interior, toilets clean. Staff extremely helpful and service excellent. Decent selection of ales: Adnams, Fuller's London Pride, Wells Bombardier, John Smiths Smooth, Guinness + regularly changing Guest ales and lagers. They have a Cask Marque. The menu was excellent with plenty of choice - large specials selection on the day we were there and the food well cooked and presented. Only possible cause for complaint was that one of their 'Chef Recommends' dishes (Beef Bourguignon) was off that day and you had to order it to find that out. £19 per head for coffee, drinks and two courses. One of the better places to visit.|

|Pub/restuarant but not unpleasant for all that. Reasonable ales on, usually Pride and one other and if you're lucky there'll be some properly served Hoegaarden in the proper giant glass. Staff can be really friendly and efficient or at the other end of the scale, totally mystified by the most straightforward of orders. Plenty of space outside and set back a bit from the Bath Road which assists ambience. Food is ok, often with offers on. Can attract families with young children in the early part of the evening.|

|Every beer I asked for last week was 'off'. Won't be going back again for a long while|
