“Waiting 45 mins for nothing!”
Reviewed 9 September 2011

Went to lunch with work colleagues. We ordered and then waited 45 mins for some sign of our food coming. We spoke to staff and they said they had lost our order!!!! We decided to leave and the barman then decided he would make us pay for our drinks even though we hadn't eaten food, wasted our lunch hour, then had to rush back to work, and didn't even apologise. Great service!

“Bring back the old DeerHound”
Reviewed 30 August 2011

I havent visited the Deerhound for some time (approx 3/4yrs) we use to live round the corner but since moving to the other side of the island we tend to eat more in town than we do anywhere else.

Last week after visiting the cinema we popped in for dinner. My last memory of the dh was great, lovely food, great service always with a smile i can remember chatting to the manageress Hayley whenever we visited.

What on earth has happened, no Hayley looks like the irish guy who we remember from before is now the manager, miserable staff, no smiles like there use to be, very long wait for food and it wasnt even that busy and when the food arrived it wasnt that great.

Its such a shame that such a great place has gone down hill. We wont be rushing back in a hurry.

“Poor quality food”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

Took my son after work for a treat. i ordered risotto.

What came was a hard lump of rice which I had to break with a spoon and which had no taste. It had quite obviously been microwaved and the chef should hav ebeen ashamed of serving it to anyone.

Will not be returning to eat.

“Lovely food Great service Try it....”
Reviewed 12 July 2011

We went for our first anniversary to Guernsey and stumbled across the Deerhound, we were made to feel welcome and the service we had was overall very good (trust me i am so picky about it having waitressed myself)
We went 3 times my husband had the same meal each time i had 3 different meals, prawns, crab salad and mussels and would have everyone of them again they were all superb.
Try it..........

“Not worth the money, sadly”
Reviewed 18 June 2011

Starters were good. Unfortunately the mains were over cooked and quite tasteless. The staff were pretty miserable as well. The pub has lost all the interesting beers they used to have and its pool table. Very disappointing.
