“Absolutley Wonderful!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Whilst staying in Wold Newton over the weekend we came across this lovely little pub. There were 6 adults and a baby all starving and in search of some pub grub. Unfortunately we got there at 4pm and were told the restaurant didn't open until 6pm. We decided to have a drink anyway and while we were waiting the bar man got on the phone to the chef and he came in early just for us!!! What service!!! The food was completely gorgeous and everyone enjoyed there dinner. We were far too full for pudding but had one anyway and were not disappointed. This is a lovely relaxing country pub with excellent food and incredible service. Couldn't have asked for more. We will be back!

“Was there really a chef in the kitchen. I think not!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We booked a table for 7.30 and arrived early. There was no-one in the restaurant but for some reason asked to sit at a table in the bar. There were 4 other people in the bar. After about 20 mins they were seated in the restaurant. Another 20 mins and we were asked to go to a table. eventually we were served our starter, it was OK.
Then we sat and waited. No indication was given about our main course and we began to think perhaps the pig hadn't been killed, yet!. We sat and waited. After we had been there for a total of 75 minutes we decided the joke was over. We paid for the wine and the first course. I told a lie and we left. My wife can't cope with confrontation - hence the lie. The 2 young men running the show were friendly people but clearly had had no
training or experience in restaurant work. Some you win!!!
