Unreal, salmon and orca! Whistle watching the England game, couldn’t fault a single thing! Would have the same dish over and over again every day! Loved it.

Visited last night 9/6 for the first time in well over a year. On entering I could tell straight away they’d invested money in the restaurant. It looks great. Once seated at our table we looked at the menu ( which is always good )...and said we were undecided, Sal the owner said he would sort the starter. We shared an exceptionally good mixed starter which was not on the menu. The taste left some great flavours in our mouths. Onto the mains which again were really good. We could not fault them. I’m looking forward to our next visit as my wife was very envious. Big thanks to Sal and his team. Cheers NickMore

Had a superb meal in a friendly, well ventilated, safe and spacious venue. The food was excellent, the service was superb and we felt completely at ease. I highly recommend eating here.

Poor service, waited over an hour for our meal in the restaurant and they were not busy.Had been using on and off for 8 years.Ordered a madras as a takeaway about 2 years ago and got a massala, had no heat or colour. So decided...to forget the past and take my son there for his birthday,poor service and a mediocre curry that took and hour to arrive at my table. Won't be going back again☹More

Can’t thank you enough for the way you looked after us yesterday. Food and service were perfect, whole tandoori leg of lamb and chicken, plus the full roast accompaniment including your delicious drovers Yorkshire puddings. You all gave 100%, once again thank you.

We’ve been coming here on and off for over 10 years and owner still doesn’t recognise us. The level of customer experience is 0. Very over priced for what you end up getting . The takeaway this time was definitely a miss, the meat was...tough and left us with inedible dishes. The rice was also very dry. I would give it a miss!More

I don't even know where to start... the food took 2 hours to be delivered 3.5 miles down the road. When it finally got here and we started plated up we soon realised that it had clearly been either forgotten about or been part of...a sequence of delivery drops. Not only was it luke warm, the onion bhajis were soggy, the salad had wilted and partly turned into slush. One of the naans were burnt on the bottom and the curry's themselves were as bland as a ready meal curry. My boyfriend ordered an Ostrich starter which cost nearly £9 on its own and said it was awful and ended up leaving it. And all of this for a hefty £43!! Fuming is an understatement, waited SO long for this mess to arrive we were gutted. Called up to complain and told they will sort us out next time.... there definitely won't be a next time!! Even emailed them the next day because we were still so angry and didn't even get a response. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEYMore

We have been visiting the Drovers Arms for a few years and enjoy it every time. Food is delicious and staff are always friendly. During covid we have had a few takeaways and they have been just as good as the eat in food and...there are often offers for free drinks with takeaway collection. Highly recommend!More
