Came here for a quick lunch, after waiting almost an hour just for a salad and chicken skewers we were told there would be another 15 minute wait as 'chef had just dropped the skewers on the floor'. There was no apology and the custom service over all was exceptionally poor. We will not be returning in the future.

Wow just wow What an amazing place. A little quiet but we came for Sunday lunch and what a treat to find HOMEMADE YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS. We had a mixture of the Sunday lunch and main menu items. All freshly cooked and tasted good. Yes service ws a little slow but worth the wait. Please pass on our thanks to your... More

Called in for a quick drink whilst out with my wife, we found it to be a nice place with a nice outside terrace with decent furniture. It wasn't busy inside or outside but it was fairly early in the evening. The bar man was polite and cheerful. We would definitely return.

This used to be a lovely pub in a lovely location with great food. Unfortunately I don't think the staff especially the chef are up to standards that this lovely pub deserves.

Cannot agree more with recent review by Gentleman Dave ( 1 week ago). The recently departed landlady turned this place from a waste of time ( often closed) to a vibrant, welcoming place to be. Me and my partner visit (or did!) this pub in both foul and fair weather. Sit in front of a roaring log/coal fire on a... More

I was just passing after a lovely walk around the dam and realised The Pledwick was serving Sunday lunch. Wow what a lovely lunch! We had a choice of chicken, lamb or beef. Loads of vegetables, mashed potatoes and gravy! Reasonably priced too! I will definitely be returning.

Tried to call Thursday night for a drink at 845pm to be met by the landlord (?) Stating sorry gents but I've just called last orders. Car park had several cars in but he's called last orders. Sorry but will never call again and recommend no one I know does. I was with a semi regular. Your loss.

The management reserve the right to close the pub earlier on some occasions during low season. Cars in the carpark where left from earlier tea time drinkers. Local community pubs that are not in a chain and not brewery backed and not banked rolled by an investor have to make key decisions to preserve running costs to ensure that this... More
