“More Pub than restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2012

If you're looking for good quality pub food, go and enjoy, if you're looking for a good restaurant choose somewhere else. As much as two of us enjoyed the food it wasn't what we were expecting, other reviews have said how amazing & fresh the fish was, unfortunately the seafood is all from the freezer, except the crayfish from a brine tub and was all very average, the king prawn starter was very salty but with a good flavour. Prices are reasonable and the fillet steak was very good, but it should be for £20, the pepper sauce it came with was a little odd to say the least, tasted like Bisto with a little mustard and ground black pepper, not worth the £2 addition. Overall, not impressed & probably wouldn't visit again unless maybe Saturday lunch, they have a varied menu and we only tried 2 starters & 2 main courses, portions were generous, I would have preferred half the portion & twice the quality.

“Shoddy Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

After having a very pleasant meal at Kye's in December we returned for a Mother's Day lunch. Even after phoning and booking several days before hand the blank faces and the eventual "Who are you?" on arrival set the tone for a very disappointing meal. The waitress was hopeless and her inability to make a simple cappuccino was ridiculous. The price we were charged for a glass of milk for my 3 year old daughter was nothing short of daylight robbery. The food was ok but the overall experience was very poor. I am all for supporting local businesses but Kye's will not be getting my money anytime soon.
