Had to return food because steak was blue instead of rare and half of it was cold. Got a replacement which was cooked correctly and hot but wife had almost finished eating her meal. Noticed table next to me who also had steak returning one of their steaks and eating separately as well. I've never had to return a meal...

Nothing very much out of the ordinary. A reasonable bar and restaurant area but somewhat lacking in any real atmosphere, and with a very standard menu. This less than inspiring start was, however, compensated for by the cheerful and attentive attitude and approach of the staff, and the speedy delivery and the very pleasant food. The Great Norther does have...

Sunday lunch here yesterday! Great choice of meats, served in no time, was delicious ! Friendly helpful staff and the place was spotlessly clean! Dessert was also yummy! The place was very busy but you wouldn't think so with the very helpful staff who were attentive and calm - which adds to the comfortable atmosphere. Lovely pub and family friendly...

This is one of our locals which we have visited several times in the past and have been fairly satisfied but when we compare the menu price in this venue against others in our area it has to be said that we failed to be convinced that the additional cost was justified. The staff are exceptional, the place is very...

We stayed over a single night in one of the three rooms in the building adjoining the main pub. Dinner in the pub restaurant in the evening was absolutely excellent - the steak from the specials menu (£11!) was far better than one from an ostensibly much more posh hotel a couple of nights later. The room was modern, well...

Just dropped by the Great Northern for a meal with my daughter as we couldn't be bothered to cook for ourselves. I can't say the service was bad but it lacked that personal touch that makes you feel you want to come back soon. My daughter ordered the "Hunters Chicken" which arrived in good time.It looked good and the portion...

We are local to the area and often visit the Great Northern for a quick evening beer or meal. The pub is a nice place to go but the general atmosphere is somewhat lacking I have to say which is not helped by the service which is always very slow. We waited at the bar (not for the first time)...

This is a converted barn behind the main building, so is shielded from traffic noise. The spacious bedroom was fitted and decorated to a high standard with a good size bathroom. The only small gripes were that the bathroom was cold if you left the door closed and you didn't turn on the heated towel rail. There is also no...
