The steak in ale pie was extremely dry with an overriding aniseed flavour no one came to ask if meal was ok if they had I would have been able to ask for some gravy as none provided. My husband had to ask twice for some mustard for his meal and we were told that it was a change over... More

Hi sherwoodd2017, Thanks for your review. Apologies that you did not enjoy your visit to us last week, clearly we made some errors, and I can see why you were disappointed. The steak pie dish is now home made on the premises, and has been generally very well received, therefore, I`m at a loss to explain why it would taste... More

Wolseley Arms is a fairly regular haunt of ours, simply because it is a great 'atmospheric' pub which also serves good food. For that reason is usually quite busy and it may be a good idea to book if you want anything more than just a drink. It is reasonably priced and well situated for refreshment after a good walk...

Hi Nicci M, Thanks for your review. Clearly, we apologise if you did not enjoy your meal, but I have to say I think your other criticisms are very harsh under the circumstances. We have to close the business down at the end of the night, and the things you have highlighted are tasks that simply have to be done... More

This is probably the best Vintage Inn we have frequented and we do search them out as we tour the country in our canal boat. Service is great, particularly the bubbly waitress (sorry forgot her name) with the telephone menu-taker. She is always looking to help and the overall impression is of a cosy, country pub despite the busy road.... More

Booked for Mothers Day. On arrival was greeted by friendly staff who were polite and well mannered. Mothers day menu had a good variety of food on offer,(Starter, Main,Desert £19:50). Food came out on time, and was well impressed with the way it was presented,and tasted.I would recommend a visit.
