    Food was not of the best quality. Steak was as tough as old boots. Haggis and venison pie was small and dry. Puddings were absolutely huge. Staff very friendly and atmosphere was great.

    Service was fab, but the food was disappointing, my burger was lacking in flavour, other than over powering spice. And the hand cut chips were anything other than handcut. By 9pm all the ladies toilets were blocked, not flushing and looking grim. I'm not sure I would return.

    The HuxleyResponded 5 days agoHello there, We appreciate you taking the time to write us some feedback. I'm saddened to hear the food wasn't a hit with you, and that the toilets weren't up to their usual standards. Both positive and negative feedback is important to ensure we are refining our efforts. I will be showing this to our team to start a discussion on how we can improve. I do hope you can give us another chance so we can have a redo and give you a better experience. Kind Regards, Benji

    Service very slow however staff were very kind and friendly. Didn’t have any Prosecco which was disappointing. Cocktails were ok but definitely not worth the money £9.95 each Have been here a lot and this visit was very disappointing unfortunately

    The HuxleyResponded on January 4, 2023Hi Rachael, Thank you for your kind words about the staff. I will make sure to pass this on to them. I am sorry that the service was slower than usual, it was an unexpectedly busy day for us and this caught us a little by surprise. I apologise for the lack of prosecco that we had, following a very busy Hogmanay period our supply was very depleted. We learn from our mistakes and will ensure that we have more prosecco in future. Kind regards Jordan

There was a bit of kitchen trouble making the service a bit slow and he kept us updated ad was so friendly - he is a keeper - my 23-year-old son said Mum he is such a lovely lad!

    We felt bad for the single man on the bar, my partner was waiting for a drink to go with his meal but by the time he came back, his food was cold as it took 10 minutes. Definitely can understand the short staff issue however, I feel that maybe more people on the bar instead of running around would benefit The Huxley more (: other than, perfect!

    All was well until we were advised we only had 15 minutes left. Booking was at 5.15, we arrived 10 mins early, we were seated and didn’t need to wait. What you are not advised is that your 2 hour table slot starts from when you sit down. They told us our table was reserved for 7pm at 6.45pm. We had just ordered drinks at the bar at approx 6.30 thinking we had time. I think that the booking time is the booking time, if table was available to us early then so be it! Unfortunately due to this we not likely to return.

    Ordered 2 winter cocktails, tasted vile obviously whoever made them does not know how to make cocktails. Didn’t really fancy anything on the menu so got loaded fries to share, we left half of the plate of food as it was overly salted and the chilli beef was full of grizzly bits. Service was ok to start then waited what felt like forever to pay the bill. Overall poor.

    The HuxleyResponded on November 30, 2022Hi Donna, Thank you for the feedback on the winter cocktails. We have recently changed the menu and I appreciate any feedback on these new drinks. I have also passed this feedback on to the kitchen regarding the food issues. I hope that you come back to try some other cocktails. Kind regards Jordan General Manager
