Food was lovely, very good and tasty. Portions were a little small for the price. Service was good and staff were fairly attentive. Decor in the Elephant at the Market is great and it feels really cosy. Location is right in the middle of Newbury so very convenient.

Hi robertmeyer05, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review on Trip Advisor. I am very disappointed to read about your experience and would like to assure you that the behaviour that you witnessed during your visit is not typical practice, only our pizza chef is to be preparing and topping the pizza's and the only contact from our waiting staff is to deliver them to the tables. This has been addressed directly to all of our team members, both in the kitchen and front of house to ensure that this situation does not occur again. All of our team have been trained in food hygiene practices, including correct hand washing procedures, and understand the importance of maintaining the highest standards at all times. Please allow me to apologise on behalf of our team for your experience and thank you for bringing this to our attention. Kind Regards The Elephant at the Market
