We did go to The Kentford for a Sunday lunch. The focus of the lunch is quite clearly the roast, which is very large and looks great. There is a small selection of starters, desserts and other mains. Quality is very good, the service is...excellent and the atmosphere cosy. The only improvement would probably be a slightly larger selection on the menu.More

Initially me and 2 of my mates turned up at this pub and everything was as you would expect. My other mate was outside on the phone and was speaking to his ex who he recently broke up and was understandably emotional. Upon joining our...table he asked for a shot which wasn’t extremely especially at 6:45 in the afternoon and he got response to all of us of “better drink up and leave” whilst all of us were perfectly fine and even he was fine. We wasn’t causing any problem and they made us feel so unwelcome without being any problem at all and trust me I would admit if we wasn’t an issue. The person who told us to leave and said was a “family pub” was the only person with a child literally in her hands with no other children around the place at the time. We had no option but to have one drink and leave. Will never return even with my fiancée or family for meal when fully reopen!More

A real 'hidden gem'. The food was superb-yes, pricier than the local spoons but a million times nicer. Very accommodating to requests and alterations, and attentive yet not intrusive staff. One ways systems used and, the first place I've been post covid where the staff...have consistently obeyed social distancing and worn masks. Highly recommend-will certainly be back!!!More

Meals were minimal and basic. Not much choice. Over priced too. 50% government scheme made it ok. But would never have paid £13.95 for a Thai curry. The desserts were boring too. £5 pint. Say no more.

I walked in as they advertise outside on a big board that they have plant based options on their menu and I’m vegan. I asked for the vegan menu and the guy said it’s on the main menu. There was one option which was a...mushroom katsu curry...so I ordered. I waited 30 minutes to be seated ( by this time my 4 year old was getting irate ) then another 30 minutes for our food. When it did turn up I cut open the food to discover that it was chicken! I called over the waiter who said ‘ oh yes you ordered the vegan option’ and disappeared with the food. He then came back out to tell e that they had run out of the curry but the chef could whip me up a quick mushroom pasta. Not having any other option I said ok. Not a single apology, not a discount on my bill! Nothing! I would suggest that a restaurant that is going to advertise this outside on their notice board start by actually offering a better range on their menu....such a disappointing experience.More

Sunday lunch for four people. Nice restaurant if a little short on space. Staff were very nice, welcoming, efficient and attentive. Average main meal (beef, chicken) which did not impress or upset anyone. Everything piled up as is the norm these days. Desert was best...forgotten about - all agreed that the choices sounded better than they were - but other than that the beer was okMore

Thank you for making my Mother's Day meal so special. I really enjoyed the chicken liver parfait and roast beef. The food was incredibly tasty, could not fault it. The staff were very attentive and friendly and they helped keep our 2 year old son...occupied. He did very well with his sausages and mash and we were very pleased he ate more than he normally does when we're out. We will definitely be returning soon! Thanks again.More

I don't know I'm afraid as I'm not a veggie but they are very accommodating so will do their best to provide alternative options.
