Tuesday evening and the place empty so very quick service. Meals average and what you would expect in a pub, for three of us it was about £30 for the meal including a drink each. Ok but not anywhere you would take someone to impress

Not a bad place to go for lunch, pub grub at reasonable prices, we all had something different and all were okay. The toilets could do with a bit of attention.

I’m a regular at the herewood pub and I always receive fantastic service beyond your typical service off the supervisor Karris! If you get a chance to visit this establishment I’m sure she would give anyone the same treatment she gives me !
