We visited the fruiterers arms for my step dads 69th birthday. 13 adults and 2 young children. We pre ordered the kids meals and had them on the table 15 minutes after we arrived, the sausages were amazing! All 13 adults commented on how fresh and delicious all food was - starters and mains. Staff were extremely friendly and the... More

Sunday lunch should be the stock in trade for a country pub with restaurant. Sadly, having recently given the Fruiterers the benefit of the doubt on a number of occasions this last visit was the final straw. 20 minutes to take an order and 20 minutes to deliver the starter. This was followed by being accosted at the table, while... More

I visited the Fruiterers on Friday Evening (New Years Eve Eve! Restaurant was fairly full but not too busy. I went out with my Partner, and the In-laws. We all had drinks served to our table pretty swiftly and 5-10 minutes later our order had been taken for food. I had the Chicken Burger which was huge! Chips were great,... More

Firstly, the two girls on our side of the pub were working so hard with no help from management, so this review is no bad comment on them. We arrived at 3pm as booked. Weren't seated until 4pm and waited 25 minutes to get a drink. There was no que but was just ignored repeatedly by the gentleman working the... More

Let's start with a positive, the waitresses clearly worked their backsides off on Xmas day and were juggling far too much with little support... the positives end there... We waited an hour to be seated, luckily my elderly nan got a seat at the bar... my elderly grandad not so much... Little communication with why we were waiting but ya... More

I have been a frequent user of this pub for over 20 years, and it is such a shame. We booked a 'group' booking for a set Christian meal for 22. We pre ordered weekend in advance. All fairly simple stuff. We arrive, have a few drinks and are seated. Starters arrive. Somehow 'there list is different' from our list.... More

Having visited the Fruiterers for many many years, I was very disappointed this time. We were the only ones eating in the dining room (unheard of over the years) apart from a family occasion for the land lord who were eating a takeaway (Great advert). There was no atmosphere, no decorations and no Christmas menu on (very disappointing) Food was... More

Having changed hands a year ago this pub seems to have found its original charm. Good English menu at sensible prices, waitress was excellent - friendly and polite, not over the top, just made the experience of eating there really nice. Food was lovely, this is just a really nice place, don't have too many expectations and you won't be... More
