We ate here on the four nights when we stayed. A varied menu to suit most tastes with a Specials menu each night The service was excellent and the staff were most attentive. We could have taken our dog into the bar to have a meal but didn't - out of habit so ate in the restaurant! One of the... More

The restaurant is large and spacious, the staff are efficient and friendly. The food id traditional with some interesting signature dishes. The Old Smokey is a creamy gratin of smoked haddock in a delicious wine sauce in an individual dish with a crusty top.

Took our friends to Sunday lunch at this restaurant recently, eagerly looking forward to a really nice meal etc with friends (their first visit). First course; soup was cold, prawn cocktail...the prawns were missing!. Main course; beef 'dry' and over cooked, pork more fat than meat!. Overall the food was a great disappointment, service however was good, but end result... More

Dinner with friends here for the second time, all of us were a bit disappointed with the food. Service was great, very friendly staff and prompt even though the restaurant was full, but the menu really let it down. Three of us had sea bass which was overcooked, making it dry and a bit chewy. All the food was just... More

We decided to try this place on a Sunday evening, after being recommended by two friends. We booked a table, but needn't have worried - it was virtually empty when we arrived at 6.45pm. It was very warm and welcoming inside, with a big log fire, nice bar area and friendly staff. They had a good range of real ales... More

Ate here for second time since its refurb and presumably new owners. Buzzing for a winter Saturday lunch - some very good offers for a 2/3 course lunch. We ate off a la carte. My partner had a superb vegetarian plate of falafel, halloumi, grilled veg, pitta and Creme fraiche. I went for the burger and home made chutney -... More

Had midweek lunch to celebrate my Mother's 90th Birthday (party of 8 incl. 2 elderly and 1 child). Starters were pretty good except for the soup - Leek and Potato - could just taste the potato but no sign of leeks. My main course of Thai green chicken curry was neither green or curry. Tasted mainly of olive oil. None... More

Staff extremely friendly and welcoming but menu limited for choice. I ordered Chicken and Bacon Salad with Caeser Dressing which came with hardly any 'dressing' on it (a slight bit of mayonnaise but certainly not the Caeser dressing as described on menu), however my daughter ordered the beef burger which was excellent. We had to wait for a very very... More

I have been to the Hadley Bowling Green occasionally over a period of many years. The last time I went before this last weekend was a couple of years ago. t was fine then but the dark country road puts me off in the winter. I went back after seeing that it had been refurbished and was under new management.... More
