Lovely menu selection for lunch time and service was prompt but not intrusive. We did however want to have a starter drink at the bar, just to chill with our friends but the waitress seemed anxious to seat us at our table, would have preferred a more relaxed start to the meal but will visit again.

I have been a regular at the F&H now for nearly 18 months and have recently come to the realisation that I have yet to have an experience there that doesn't involve some form of disappointment with the service. As a general rule, the food is consistently good and the quality of the offering rarely disappoints. This, along mainly with... More

A warm, friendly, sincere welcoming smile says it'll be a nice lunch - and so it was. The bar and table service was excellent and engaging. Mostly, the lunch for 5 of us was very good, with one exception that was noted and reported to the kitchen. The beer was magnificent - Rowton Pure Gold was just beautiful. If I... More

Four of us came for a meal. The whole experience from walking through the door to leaving was brilliant. The waitresses were very attentive and the food was served hot and in great time. We all chose something different and none of us were disappointed. We are all still talking about it days later. We will defiantly all return and... More

Visited for a small birthday meal with the family and had a great time. Friendly staff, great food and not overly expensive. I would recommend the faggots on the specials board or the chicken rarebit on the main menu. Will definitely return soon.

I visited this Pub in the summer whilst visiting Hawkestone Follies after a long walk. My immediate was how clean and fresh the pub was, very attentive staff, great fine ales and most of all fantastic range of fine food on the menu. I visited again this evening with my wife and two young children and I will most definitely... More

Absolutely beautiful Christmas meal, could not be faulted. Party of 6 and everyone in agreement that the food and service was outstanding. My starter of goats cheese tart was lovely and the turkey dinner with seperate side dishes of veg and potatoes was fabulous, piping hot and full of flavour. Finished off with creme brulee and filter coffee. First time... More

We came for a lunch menu on a Saturday, it wasn't particularly busy which was handy and we managed to get seated with one of the grandparents in tow. It was great that she was able to move about freely and it was spacious between tables. We were served by a lady who took the time to acquaint herself to... More
