We visited for lunch ... Restaurant was busy.. Menu was good. Service was slow. My husband ordered a beer which was flat when I advised the lady behind the bar she was really rather rude. However they allowed a change. Food was good.. Lunch plough mans was nice but a little overpriced. Probably wouldn't return.

The Giants Rest has had its ups and downs over the years, but it is now definitely on an up. The food is consistently good, the atmosphere friendly and vibrant, and so is invariably popular, particularly at weekends, and you really need to book on a Sunday lunch.
We had a great lunch today, served promptly, and was very tasty.

We love this restaurant. Always great food, only criticism is you have to order at the bar. Service is ok.

I went to Giant's Rest in late December with a group of friends and would never wish to make a return visit,WHY worst service i have ever experienced and worst food.
I ordered turkey and was dished up what seemed like turkey roll straight out of a packet.
Was i unlucky because it was in the Christmas period when many places let their standards down with to many eaters,what ever the reason i will not be making a return visit that's for sure.
