5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

This is a not to be missed meal ! Loved it and will definitely we returning. Lovely interior and several different kinds of seating available from formal to relaxed. Food amazing and generous portion sizes. Booking probably would be recommended as we went on a tues and it was virtually full.

“Very Impressed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

We booked a table for the family and friends to celebrate my son's first birthday. Nothing was too much trouble for the waiter who served all 17 of us. The pre-ordered food was promptly served at a time that suited everybody. The quality of the food was excellent at a reasonable price and the staff even came out and sang happy birthday!

I will be going back again soon!

“Not what it used to be”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Have eaten here several times and it used to be very good, but on the last couple of occasions the food quality has slipped. On our last visit the home made pie of the week (chicken and asparagus) was dry to the point of being wooden, steaks too where also poor.
Service so slow I gave up trying the complain! when I went to find our waiter to ask for the bill he had no idea who I was or where we had been sitting!
We shall be giving this one a miss for a while.

“Un-understandably poor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

We have eaten at the Fishpool Inn on a grand total of three occasions and on each of them there has been some manor of crisis.

My mother and I took my father the The Fishpool Inn for his birthday treat. We had been trying to get in for many weeks and he seemed keen to go. Booking using their online booking system is a nightmare as it is impossible for me To find a way in which one can select the number of people attending. It seems therefore appropriate that one should phone and speak to a real person there on site. Well, as we learnt on our second visit the, this too can have it's difficulties. By calling the number on their website, you are put through to the hotel which is not running on the same system as the restaurant. This may have been updated since we found this out, but I generally would not recommend it to other businesses looking for a new operating system. The final time which we attended the Fishpool Inn was tonight when we ordered 3 starters and 3 main courses. Only 4 of these dishes arrived as the other 2 had been mistakes by the server. One started was changed completely and another main course (macarroni and four cheese) was changed for a four cheese pizza.

Very disappointing, and a let down as generally a nice atmosphere and nice staff.
