“Really good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

When we go out for a meal, the most important thing is the food.
The steak pie was delicious, chicken curry amazing and lamb cutlets tasty.
Reasonably priced food, big portions.
The only thing that let the meal down was frozen chips.
Improve the chips and it would have got 10 out of 10.
There have been lots of comments about the toilets and although not amazing not as bad as folks make out.
I'd gladly go back.

“Decent pub grub but the toilets are disgusting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Have eaten here a couple of times now and quality of starters and main courses are pretty decent, pub grub. Desserts are bought in so the lemon tart has a soggy pastry bottom where it has defrosted on a plate and not a very lemony filling, a decent homemade dessert is what most people with tastebuds expect these days so hopefully management will take note. Now onto the real shocker, I needed to use the loo and I can honestly say I have never been into a more filthy, stinking ladies loo in all my life, it actually made me feel sick, unfortunately, we had ordered by the time I had seen this or I probably would have left without eating. Somebody else did mention that they think the problem is in hand as some new tiles were stacked in the corridor so I may be brave enough to venture in again in future, I'll check the loo's first and if they've been refurbished then I'll stay and eat, if not then I'll go somewhere else.

“Food still good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

It's true, the Shadwick is a little tired, and the loos leave a lot to be desired, but the food is great. Kids menu is the best for miles around and they do an unbelievable array for adults. Nice staff and service with a smile. It's a pub with good value tasty food.

“Disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Ordered ahead as there was a very large party! Children and adults received Luke warm food without their chips, salad, peppercorn sauce to go with steak and by the time these things came they had actually finished their main!!! Adult meals instead of children's and visa versa. Food was okay, but who wants to just eat some chicken fillets/ macaroni without potatoes or chips!

“Never fails to disappoint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

I'm a regular visitor to the Shandwick Inn, having being going there for a number of years.
The food is good quality and tasty. The portion sizes are also pretty impressive.
It has a nice setting and there is a children's play area outside to keep the kids occupied.
I have never been disappointed by the Shandwick, they always seem to pull it out the bag, even when it is really busy, they always seem to put out food of a high quality.
The only qualm I have had in the past is that during the busier times the service can be a bit slow, but I suppose this is to be expected. The staff are very friendly and always welcoming when you enter the premises.
This is a great place to go for a meal and I'd highly recommend it.
