Wanted to have any early dinner. But after my friend saw kitchen staff eating hand to mouth out the customers food decided against. The worst part was to come when I went to the toilet saw a kitchen staff go to the men's without washing...More

Robin Hood's Retreat used to be pretty awesome with some of the best food in the area, then the head chef left and the menu became very bland. Finally the place has shut down. RIP Robin Hood's.

Groupon taster menu - slow service, missed out a course, overcharged for a drink we didn't have. Terrible rising damp in the ladies. Used to be fab, don't think we will be returning except for maybe a drink in the garden on a sunny day....More

We'd visited the Robin Hood's Retreat before and been very impressed by the quality of food so chose again for a family celebration. Should have realised something was wrong when we arrived to a bar covered in dirty wineglasses, but assumed that perhaps their dishwasher...More
