Was very impressed with both menu and service that this pub offered. Probably haven't been there for at least 10 years due to previous poor experience. The menu is varied with a good selection of daily specials. 3 friends had Roasts, I had sea bass,...scallops with prawn and pea risotto. All very tasty, hot and all finished with clean plates. Desserts were fab, from sticky toffee pudding, mocca tart and Bakewell tart with the loveliest pastry. Thanks to our server Andy who was a delight Would definately recommend and can't wait for my next visitMore

The first impression on walking into this pub was how dim it was, and not in a romantic way. Although the staff were helpful and friendly the place doesnt have much atmosphere and the decor feels somewhat dated. I ordered a steak and although it...was well cooked and well presented, both it and the chips were fairly bland and lacking in flavour. I ordered a mini chocolate brownie as a dessert and although this tasted good it was quite runny! Given the good reviews this pub has I was quite dissappointed with the overall experience and would be reluctant to go back or recommend to others.More

Our second visit to the Hatch in 3 weeks. We were welcomed with a smile. Every team member seemed to enjoy their work, all smiling, today we were looked after by Lyndsey, I cannot remember the name of the guy that looked after us a...couple of weeks ago, but he was new. Both very pleasant. Our drinks order was with us within minutes. The food was lovely and piping hot. We came away well fed and watered. Looking forward to going back again soon.More

Excellent service, super quick to get our food and lovely food. All your staff are extremely friendly greeting when we arrived being attentive throughout our visit and even making sure to say farewells when we left. Our waitress was Amanda this time who was superb....Food was lovely and we loved the roast dinner extras ,(loaded roasties, loaded yorkshire, pigs in blankets etc) If there was one criticism it would be some of the roast potatoes were too lightly done for us (we prefer smaller crispy roasties) but I am sure that is personal preference. We used our Clubcard Vouchers too which is one of our main reasons for visiting!More
