    I have already sent a complaining email to the proprietors of the Blue Hayes, therefore feel my star ratings probably are all I need to say regarding my recent visit there

    went mid week so was very quiet and little atmosphere. intrigued to see how different it would be at the wknd. menu was outstanding but food was a little disappointing for the price. the venison was asked to be medium cooked but was more well cooked. the vegetables weren't great either. The waitress however was very attentive and welcoming.

    Lovely food in a pleasant environment served by friendly staff. Not cheap but in my view worth every penny. Great for a special occasion.

    Pleasant old style beamed cottage environment with very friendly pleasant and attentive staff . The tables were well decorated and clothed. The wine list was OK and reasonable. Wine was served well with tasting offered. I suppose I had in mind more of a gastro pub. However the food served was best described as hearty. My fried bassa fillet was OK, running in oil and it was served on the plate with just 6 boiled rather large half potatoes which were not new pots. The veggies were OK in an accompanying side bowl. Lots of food but not well displayed and not particularly tasty. My wife went for the pork Sunday lunch. The pork was served as two half inch thick slices of rolled pork which was rather dry. It was not carved from a roast. Good roast potatoes. Only a ring of apple which was not adequate for the pork. Desserts were large and the banana split too much and messy to eat. My chocolate brownie was excellent. Great serving staff, adequate food, rather bland and not elegant in any way. A pity.

    The food wasn't good. The potatoes for both our meals tasted old and just heated up. The place although smart seemed rather dated and lacked ambience. And I felt cold which is never good in a restaurant. It's a shame as it looks so pretty from the outside

    Dreadful ambience and very very tired decor. Needs a good lick of paint and a total refurbish. Even had to tell the assistant there was no towel in the toilets and didnt seem interested ! Limted lunch choice , be it what we had was fine A definite place never to go back to !
