I visited The old spring well yesterday for lunch with my mother and my two young girls (age 3 and 2). The place itself was clean and tidy but the coustomer service and food were both terrible! My mother ordered the tiger fries with chicken and it came in an enamel bowl that was chipped and looked like a dog... More

This is our local and we do pop in every few weeks but be warned if you have a dietary requirement. The menu has improved to cater for gluten free diets. As a coeliac I am very careful about where and what I eat. I ordered a meal that sounded great and the waitress understood that I needed gf food.... More

Visited on a Wednesday afternoon after shopping in harrogate. There were plenty of seats but not many staff on but once we'd been to the bar someone soon came to take our order. We both opted for the half chicken with sauce and two sides, my mum had a small glass of merlot and I had a gin & tonic,... More

Went for lunch and had a very good meal. The pub has a very good menu and wide selection of prices and types of food. Run by a very good team.

I visited with my husband. We both enjoyed our meal. We hadn't known it was waitress service as it wasn't obvious. Our only complaint is that despite wearing a jumper it was cold. I had to put my coat back on. It wasn't a particularly cold day, in fact it felt warmer outside! We would go again for the food... More

Although the first time I've reviewed this pub/restaurant we have been many times and it never disappoints. Simple food, done well and good beers to boot. separate children's area as well. Staff are excellent and today for instance, Laura has been fabulous! Lastly it won't break the bank.

I had the chicken tikka salad, good quantity and quality. The group as a whole had a mixed bag....pies, burgers, light snacks etc and everyone was suitably impressed and we will definately... More

Good visit today when called by for some Sunday lunch. Starter was excellent as was the main course of beef with veg. In there was roasted potatoes, leeks, peas, carrots, cauliflower and the beef was that tender, I swear the cow would have been proud. The chef has it spot on. The bar and waiting staff were wonderful. Recommended a... More
