We had been to the supermarket and were looking for somewhere to have a quick meal. We saw the Kittiwake and thought we would give it a go. They had a carvery and a 2 for £10 offer. What a good deal. The gentleman who cut the meat was helpful, courteous and made me feel he was there just for... More

We came to the Kittiwake on a Sunday at around 2pm, we hadn't booked a table but the young lady at the entrance said we could sit at one of the bar tables if we liked. We ordered a half roast chicken with roast potatoes, we asked for a side of 2 Yorkshire puddings, everything arrived together and the only... More

Had jacket potatoe with beans and cheese. Such a small portion of beans and cheese. The beans had been sat under a hot light and were dried out and my salad was nicely warmed through. My husband had the fish and chips which he enjoyed but the mushy peas he left as they were dried out. Its frustrating as Marstons... More

Usually get a good meal at the Kittiwake, but had a pretty bland carvery recently with very dry roast potatoes. Will give the carvery a miss in future and get something decent off the menu.

Not had any problems here. Lovely carvery food. At times when pub is busy there is a bit of a wait but quality of food is good. Wide range of drinks. Good pub menu if carvery isnt your thing. General all round good pub grub. A*

Good value during the day with 2 meals for £10 but carvery wasn't up to their normal standard but still didn't go hungry! Child's meal was slow, which is unusual as they normally get those out pretty quickly! Overall though we will continue to meet here as clean, friendly and toddler friendly with plenty of space.

We go to the Kittiwake at least twice a month. We find the food very good, the staff excellent and the price.... fantastic. Plus... best pint of lager in the area and probably the cheapest.
