This was our third time in visiting this restaurant for food and unfortunately our worst. We both ordered Brie for starter and my partners arrived with a long black hair on it. Wary of sending it back I took it and gave her mine. My partner ordered Salmon, veg and mash. No veg arrived but they tried to charge for... More

Had a family event for a graduation which was booked way in advance for 8pm. Arrived at 7.55pm, menus placed in front of us, 30 mins went by before someone came to take the order (which was after we actually had to ask someone to come and take our order). It then took another hour for the starters to come... More

Really want to like this pub but apart from one lounge girl I haven't been in a pub with a more unfriendly staff. The barmen are angry & the other lounge staff are walking around staring into the distance. Positives - food & price Negatives - most of the staff What a pity!

The Orchard Inn would be a good choice for a decent meal and a beer. the night we stopped in, it was not very busy, but there were two groups making a lot of noise, talking and laughing very loudly. Maybe if the whole place had been noisy, but I couldn't see why they felt the need to be so... More

Been to the orchard a few times now. The food is always 100% and the staff can't do enough for you.. if you go in the evening I'd recommend you book. They do loads of different offers to fit all pockets
