Maybe I was just unlucky or the chef was too busy(no real excuse) but my steak meal was awful. It felt like lumps of knotted elastic bands in my mouth! That's when I managed to cut some, there was so many tram lines in it. I cant imagine why the chef would serve a steak like that. He must have... More

The prince of Wales always delivers on every visit I have had with my friends and family. I live about 15 minutes away and have been here numerous times over the years. I came here on Sunday with a table of 8 of us including kids and prams. The staff work very hard to look after everyone. The waiter took... More

I hate leaving bad reviews but felt I had to say something. Sometimes, a chef can had a bad day and when service is busy on a Sunday with endless Sunday roasts to serve, but everything we had was burnt, soggy or tasted truly horrible. I had mussels as a starter, but they smelt really disgusting and tasted of a... More

Exceptional local pub with divine Sunday lunches. Was very impressed here, that even when the restaurant was packed the staff were still top notch... friendly and welcoming. I had the pidgeon starter which was cooked to perfection (Michelin star can't be far off?!). Whilst I dine around here often, I can honestly recommend no better place for a drink, lunch,... More

This has a lovely wine bar feeling. Separated in to zones, there is low lighting sofas and bare brick walls. Tastefull stools at 3 areas of the bar. A sunken restaurant. We found the staff friendly and extremely efficient. No waiting to be served for ages as in Hampton down the road!

We were a big group of 23 -24 of us, this was the only place that could take a large party like this, with booking of course. We had a very pleasant and hospitable visit, the star is friendly and polite. The food was AMAZING, Sunday roast at its best!!! I had pork belly with cracklings and it was delicious!... More
