“Great value for money ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

Went here for a family meal and the staff were friendly and welcoming. Not the biggest menu in the world but covers the usual pub favourites. The food was good but nothing to rave about but the value for money was great, 3 courses for £14! You can't complain at that price.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2013

I had my third turkey dinner of the Christmas season, this time at the Navaar House Hotel, and it was the best :-) Four ladies in our group opted for smaller portions at a reduced price ( but those portions were still substantial) and two ladies had the normal sized portions. The turkey was tender, moist and full of flavour. The ladies who had the beef said it was the best they'd had in years. The chef came out from the kitchen at the end of the evening and chatted to the guests at each table about their meal, which impressed me.

Waitress service was friendly and well timed (not overly attentive which can be intrusive.)

Excellent value for money. I will be back.

“Good food, pleasant staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

I had a three course meal here and everything my friends and I had was excellent. My meat was very tender and everything was cooked well.The prices are very good too. The staff were very efficient and although there were a lot of us they brought out the food promptly. Nobody had to wait. I would certainly recommend the Navaar and will be returning.
