“Still Great”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

Went again this week and so happy that the Chicken Curry was back on the menu. We were 6 people and all the meals were good and the real ale was top notch. Great staff and still the best food and value for money in the area.

“As Always Excellent!!!”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

Lunch today at The Rainbow and Dove and as always busy but not surprising!
Ploughmans lunch - massive plate of food - home cooked ham, lovely cheddar cheese - chutneys - coleslaw - ciabatta - fresh salad and a side order of chips - freshly cooked and excellent!
Blazing fire which was very welcome on such a cold day.
As always the staff and owners so friendly and chatty really made us feel at home - so thank you all!
Been a customer for 7 years + and never had a bad experience - no other pubs in the area are a patch on The Rainbow and Dove so worth a visit!!

“A lovely evening”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

Although they were due to be busy they squeezed us in and didn't rush us at all. The atmosphere was really nice due to the small size of the pub and the warm fire.The food was lovely, the staff were friendly and the service was efficient. Overall, a really nice meal, excellent service and a relaxed, comfortable evening.

“New Menu & Still Good”
Reviewed 28 December 2012 via mobile

Visited twice this week and as always the service was fantastic, the food was good and the real ales are just so worth visiting for. The new menu has lost the old fav of chicken curry (was the best ever) but I believe that Thursday is to become curry night. The ham was succulent, juicy and very tasty and the burger as always well seasoned and perfectly cooked. Might just go again for their fish on Friday specials, so bring on the skate :-)

“really average food”
Reviewed 25 December 2012

We had fairly high expectations of the food but were a bit disappointed- the pub and service were both good but the food was really standard pub fayre- lots of fish in the pie but little flavour- it felt like a mission to eat. The duck also was very ordinary...Just didnt understand what the fuss was about!
