First time at the cobbler for many years. 16oz gammon was superb and the chips were fantastic. Was such a pleasure to see the mayo, ketchup etc come in bottles rather than sachets. On the carvery, as we are late, the pork and beef was a little dry. Roast potatoes and veg were very good. Price wise - excellent value... More

We have literally just left and I'm not happy at all! Firstly, I went to order food and was asked for my table number. I didnt realise becaude its written in black on a dark stained table!

Thanks for taking the time to write a review on trip advisor, although i am very disappointed to read your comments. We have had the table numbers in black on wooden blocks since we opened, we think it looks smarter than a bright in your face number, but do take your point on board and if it was your first...

Staff are friendly and provide service without being over-intrusive. Meal portions are generous, whilst available veg is kept hot. The carvery is to be drolled over. After the main course a health pause is needed to make room for a choice of one of the tasty desserts.

We went with family for a birthday Sunday lunch. It is the best price we have found locally. We booked a table and was able to sit drinking for as long as we wanted before eating, and after eating. There was no rushing us along for the table, which was nice. The carvery was outstanding. The pub is very large,... More

If you're around this area, drop in for a meal, you won't be disappointed. Despite its location, it's a real gem of a place that has the potential to rival other restaurants around. To be honest they are a pub that serves quality restaurant style food that is, at least in mine and everyone else who was there's opinion really... More
