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

There seem to be two listings for the fruiterers arms... to be fair I've added the same review to both of them, but this one has more reviews in general. Lovely pub - went for a family Sunday lunch and whilst they seated us in the bar area (as there was a big party in the dining room) the food... More

Lovely pub - went for a family Sunday lunch and whilst they seated us in the bar area (as there was a big party in the dining room) the food was delicious. Big hearty Sunday lunch portions and the lamb was to due for! Such great roast potatoes too. Loved the dinner! Only downside - toilets were a bit cold,... More

The service was really very slow but because there were several diners at our table we felt we should give the restaurant some lattitude and there were several full tables. When the meal actually arrived it was really tasty and with very generous portions and could not be faulted. The staff could have been more attentive and asked us whether... More

Went in as the Red Lion was closed to have a quick lunch and chat with a business colleague. Very pleasant and not too busy with plenty of space to have a talk. Order for food taken promptly but it was when someone who arrived after us got their food we were asked if we had received ours. Odd as... More

We have visited this pub for Sunday lunch several times before and have had great food. I booked the Fruiterers yesterday as I had left it too late for our favourite venu. Restaurant was nearly empty Food was not hot despite being on warm plates. I ordered a rump steak and asked for medium/well. It was rubbery, had no taste... More

Well presented pub and restaurant- fresh flowers and friendly welcome. Smaller selection of dishes than last visit -arrived at 12 .40 - great cauliflower soup and very tasty chicken breast +ham wrapped in flavoursome sauce - took 2 hours - with about a dozen customers .Worth the wait - but we didn't have to rush anywhere.
