“Not a fan”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Service was poor, attitude on staff not great, unhelpful and just a genuinely bad experience! Has been a few nightmare stories since about this place so definitely not worth the trip

“Another great meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

We have visited the High Corner twice before and not been disappointed and were not this time either. When we arrived there were a few tables waiting to be served so we had a bit of a wait before our meals were brought, although this was not a problem for us I can imagine that if you were there on your lunch break it could be an issue. That's one thing we have noticed, the service is a bit slow but the food is worth the wait so don't let that put you off, after all if you're out for the evening what's a bit of a wait for your food, relax and enjoy!! The restaurant is spacious and airy with friendly and accommodating staff, and the landlord also had time for a chat.

Meal prices are very reasonable with a good selection of desserts to tempt you. We will certainly be visiting again.

“Friendly and upbeat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

We ate here while staying at local Premier Inn and were pleased with the welcome and the food. Despite the fact that the pub was booked for Christmas the landlord found us a table, was cheerful and the food was reasonably priced so good value for an evening meal.

“Never been disappointed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013

Have been to The High Corner on numerous occasions this year, since I was told how good it was. We have never been disappointed with the food, the staff and the atmosphere. Weekday meals are excellent and are really homemade and tasty. The staff are absolutely brilliant and make you feel more than welcome. Sunday lunches are excellent and again are as tasty as the weekday meals. We booked For a Christmas get together with 17 friends for Christmas meal on 14th Dec. We were certainly not let down in any way. Everyone in our party praised the food, ambience, staff and the whole night in general. Thankyou to all the staff for making our night so happy. To those who haven't tried The High Corner...you are missing out, you won't be disappointed.

“Worst place I've ever been!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

This have been the second visit I have had to this pub in the last 3 months and both experiences have been shockingly bad! The staff are blunt and rude, and make you feel unwelcome and that you customer is unwanted! The place was dead so looked like they needed are custom but this would definatly be the last time ill b coming! I've been to better mcdonalds.
