Had a main course and pud. Both were delicious. You can't book so you need a plan b. We had the last table available. Would definitely visit again.

We were recommended this place by our hotel down the road. It was very busy when we arrived. We waited 50 minutes for our food which was extremely average when it arrived. We didn't bother with deserts as we knew there would be at least another 20 minute wait (observation of what was happening to other people). No doubt this place can be good if the other reviews are to be believed but we won't be going back!!

We were very pleased with the quality of food and service at The Black Venus. Definitely get there early in the evening to get a table. The menu is extensive - something for everyone.

Went here when staying at Twitchen Farm. Food lovely, staff very obliging. Cut above the average Gastro-pub and good value for money. Sat outside as dining room absolutely stifling.....

The recommendation we received for this pub was just deserved. Friendly staff and great tasting pub classics.
