The two waitresses were rushed off there feet, the meal took forever to arrive,three of our party opted for Lamb stew with dumplings, alas no dumplings to be found , the chef said they were small dumplings, so small they couldn't be found.

I went in with a small group of friends on a Sunday in October. We didn't have "Sunday lunch" but had other food from the menu. The food was excellent, as was the service. All of the staff we interacted with were really friendly and also let us borrow a couple of packs of cards to play whilst we were... More

We were staying close by and an old menu had been left in our accommodation which had some very inviting dishes on it. The reality on the evening we went was completely the opposite. The dinner menu was so boring and uninteresting it was quite difficult to chose as nothing appealed. I had a very over cooked liver dish. Our... More

Went to lunch in the nice out of the way, quiet pub/restaurant. Was pleasantly surprised with the warm surroundings and cheerful staff on such a cold and windy day. Would put the prices as cheap to mid-range with a nice selection and all served on piping hot plates and opulent portions. So good I will definitely be returning to sample... More

Went to this Pub as Sunday Menu is not solely Roast Meats. Chose Haddock with veg and new potatoes and also Lamb Hotpot with veg. Both priced at £11. Haddock was OK but new potatoes were unpleasant and either old or of poor quality. The Hot pot was most unsatisfactory; the lamb was tasteless and tough, the gravy watery and... More

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to write your review, albeit not one that I enjoy reading.

Since my last review some great improvements have been made. We've been back several times and the speed and quality (friendliness) of service has definitely improved. Apart from the odd little blip, the quality of the food has always been good. And so, with an inviting log fire, some good ales, well-priced wines and a restaurant to match I am... More

Hello again, I'm so pleased we've "stepped up to the plate" excuse the pun, insofar that we've improved on everything, going back to how it once was here.

So pleased that Botolphs is back up to standard - this was our first visit since some very indifferent experiences last December & January. The food, service and the atmosphere were first class. Hope it continues.

3 of us a very nice Sunday roast here, on offer was turkey and lamb really tasty, nice roast potatoes, mixed veg, with delicious cauliflower cheese. The chilean wine was lovely as was the Hophead bitter on offer. With good service and a friendly owner it was a very nice day.

After waiting for over an hour for our food to arrive at the table we discovered that the food was of poor quality and unedible. We informed the staff about the poor quality of the food served who kindly removed the main courses from our bill and asked us if we wished for desert. Well they couldn't even get that... More
