We visited here for lunch today, on arrival the bar man told there would be a delay for lunch due to the number of people arriving at the same time which we accepted. The place was very busy, our order was taken about 20 mins after we were seated. Once ordered our lunch didn't take long to arrive, and was... More

Thank you for your response: I am delighted that you enjoyed your meal. We do train our staff to be honest with our customers and if there is going to be a delay we would rather tell people up-front therefore they have a choice whether or not to wait. I am glad that you found our food both tasty and... More

Our party of three had the mussels, butternut squash/feta salad and scallops as a starter all three of which were delicious. We all had steaks as a main course which were good also.... More

The place is nice but I am afraid I can not say the same about the food. We ordered Cumberland sausage and chips, the sausage was tasteless and the texture was like hard rubber, it was almost imposible to cut. The mushrooms were burned and the chips had a strong odor of bad cooking oil. It could have been a... More

I am really sorry that you had a bad experience with us, as you will see from the majority of our reviews your experience is unusual. Did you mention the problem with the Cumberland Sausage when you were here? I am nearly always on site but I don't recall anyone mentioning it which is a shame as I'm sure, if... More

Stopped here for lunch on Sunday. Roast Dinner was great. I had the pork, and perfect. The reason for taking time to review is to say how impressed I was at the options for gluten free. I could have had all but 1 or 2 of the dishes on the full menu as a gluten free option if I had... More

As you say the majority of our food is cooked from fresh so our Chefs Sara and Patrick are very happy to work with individuals who have allergies or who need a gluten... More

I can understand why it has won best pub in Cumbia ..... happy staff, fabulous food and good beer Very helpful and accommodating a few tweaks to things on the menu and virtually every meal could be provided gluten free. Well worth a detour for lunch

Sat outside yesterday in the glorious sunshine and had wonderful vegetarian lunch followed by the best creme brulee I have EVER eaten! The staff were very friendly and very helpful. My lunch partner had the chicken with Waberthwaite sausage which was also very tasty. Will certainly be returning even though it is quite a drive for us, it is well... More

Really sorry that your experience with us was so disappointing. I wish you had asked to speak to someone at the time as I would have liked to look into why this happened. As you will see from nearly all our reviews customer service is normally one of our strong points and something which gets mentioned time and time again!... More
