“Beautiful setting, excellent fresh food”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

We had a late lunch, so we had a choice of tables. We sat against a wall overlooking the gardens on a beautiful sunny day. We tried the potato soup with a fresh slice of bread, and some fresh steamed veggies. It was all heavenly. I normally do not prefer a soup puree, but the flavor of this one was good, especially with the fresh baked warm bread. We had some carrots, broccoli and cabbage on the side. They were fresh (not frozen). What a treat.

Lovely place. It will be on my "visit" list next time I am in town.

“Average - sums it up”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Other reviewers have described it as average, and it really says it all. You feel the staff are trying - but only just. Food has never been above average.

“Very poor quality food”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

Yesterday we went to the pub to celebrate Father's Day with family and they displayed a large sign in car park to advertise a free pint of ale for fathers .we had two dads in our group of 6 but were told only one dad could have a free pint!
The main course a Sunday roast was really poor quality meat which was overlooked and hard to cut let alone chew. A piece of burnt cauliflower cheese and a roast potato and over cooked mushy broccoli and all luke warm and at a cost of £10.95 each!!
Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone and looking at the other poor reviews about the restaurant for Father's Day yesterday sounds like we were not the only one to experience the worst Sunday roast at a pub ever!

Reviewed 6 June 2013

There did not seem to be anyone who knew what they were doing. Waited a long time before and after placing order.

“one of the better Brain's pub restaurants !”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

we visit here very often as no need to book just turn up open all day and they will always find you a table...or in the summer just sit out on the patio. Food is always good and very reasonably priced...have never had a bad meal here. They serve a very good sunday lunch. Service always good...very friendly and cheerful staff.
