    Excellent food and choice of drinks. However service was very slow in what appeared a not so busy period. Seated quickly, waited 20 minutes then went to bar asking for service. Nearly 60 minutes before food served.

    Very busy, ordered two roasts very bland to be fair no taste at all, I left majority of mine husband ate his but again bland swamped in a red cabbage that’s all you could taste, Yorkshire pudding cold just disappointing not something we have experienced here before we normally have a good meal and a warm welcome

    Well , although we were early 30mins, for our table booking the staff were great & they did let us sit at the table . We were also informed that we could sit there but would not be able to order food until our table booking time .. which we understood. However , we waited quite a long time to be able to book our food (they were busy, which we fully appreciated) & some items on the plate were missing as according to the menu description. Some of our party were traveling back to Essex, Lincolnshire & Nottingham & obviously we’re on a slight time schedule.. As I said the serving staff were fabulous & did a great job ..

    Was not mash potatoes or parsnips with our Christmas dinner !! The sprouts was mix with bacon not an other option for our vegetarian friend. Cream brulee soggy on top and not caramelise . So overall a bit disappointed it. :( For a Christmas dinner I would not recommended, but maybe for ordinary day/ meal I would.

    Food was nice but service was poor. We didn’t receive any cutlery until 5 minutes after our food was brought out, and even then the waiter didn’t bring enough forks… Drinks took equally as long to be brought over.

    Decor and ambiance in restaurant very nice. Service very good. Due to issues with covid, not everything on the menu available (unavoidable). Sadly wasn’t over impressed with the standard of the food for the price. The chicken schnitzel was over fried and hard. Partners and Fathers meal were ok - steak and steak pie. Table service not offered for drinks once meal finished so had to stand 6 deep at the bar.

    After waiting to be seated for over 5 minutes no one came to see us, we decided to order a drink at the bar and ask about our table. They then directed us to a table setup for two. When I advised the table was for 5 they said oh ok and sent us back to the bar. Few minutes later they then said our table was read, they had added 3 more chairs to a table that was clearly for two. There was no more table's so we sat anyway. After 20 minutes no one had give us menus or even spoke to us after this we decided to leave. Good atmosphere and lively and i understand its busy the of year and difficult for the staff, however this should be managed accordingly felt like more attention was being put on the quiz instead of customers wanting food.

    The food was quite good, but overall I would say it was too expensive. Two roasts, with two very small mediocre sides, 1 beer and 1 glass wine £50. An improvement on the venue since refurb, but I don’t think I’d rush back at the current prices. Kirkfield offers better value. Slow service meant we didn’t bother hanging around for dessert. Also, no soap in the toilets during a pandemic seemed a little sloppy.

    No chef. Didn’t end up getting a meal after waiting for 1.40 minutes. The staff were amazing though and were working so hard to please all customers. And honest when we asked if we should continue to wait or not. Rubbish circumstances and unfortunate that we didn’t eat but couldn’t fault the staff

    I have Coeliac disease. I have eaten in The Pied Bull several times and the staff have always been very helpful and have talked through the gluten free options from the main menu and have adapted meals for me. On this visit I was simply given the allergen folder which basically told me there was gluten in most of the meals, the guy that provided the allergen menu was extremely unhelpful and told me he couldn’t provide any advise and it was a legal requirement for me to go the allergen folder, something I have never experienced before. Needless to say, I won’t bother next time, I shall go somewhere that is interested in providing good service to all.

    We didn’t stay for our meal. We walked in to a covid breeding ground. No direction of where to go if you were eating so we went to the bar and stood and waited like everyone else stood at the bar. Someone came to ‘serve us’ to which we said we have a table booked for food at 6 and the girl said ‘oh’ in a surprised fashion. We stood whilst she went to get another member of staff who shown us to our table and left us with the menus, didn’t say that someone would be over or offer us any drinks. Our table was in a tiny dining corner in a very loud pub full of old men who smelt like they’d poo’d themselves. We couldn’t hear each other speak it was that loud, couldn’t hear any music it was just generally from a lot of people being really loud. Me and my husband looked at each other (there was no chance of speaking because we couldn’t hear each other) and left. I was really disappointed because the menu looked really fancy since being done up and the food sounded really nice. I wasn’t expecting the dining bit to be a tiny corner of the pub from how the place is now advertised. We went home instead..

    We have eaten at the pied bull several times since it re opened. We booked last night for my sons 29th birthday and we were a party of 8. The first disappointment was the waiter took us straight to a table in the main bar and the noise level was terrible ( not what you expect at 6.30 pm. The noise level just got louder and louder during our meal. When our starters did arrive they were cold. At this point I spoke to a member of staff and he moved us to another table (still in the bar area but slightly better ) When our main meal arrived the three of us had burgers and they were cold. When we came to pay the bill the manager discounted the payment by a round of drinks and not charging for the starters The gesture was very much appreciated. I am not one to normally do these kind of review things but the pub needs to know these issues . Don’t try pack in so many people and be greedy Keep things simple and homely. Certainly do not seat a family in the bar area at that time . Kind regards Dave Tomlinson

    Second time visiting after a lovely first visit. The food was great, me and my partner had Sunday roasts. The lamb shank was cooked perfectly. Couldn't resist having sticky toffee pudding for dessert, which was also really nice. Our desserts were delayed, however we were kept well informed (I believe our server was called Robin?), which made such a difference. The staff were all really friendly and accommodating. Keep up the good work.
