The attention to detail at The Lordship is outstanding. We ordered a bottle of Cremant and it was superbly served, ice cold in an ice bucket which made it a perfect celebratory drink. Everything we ordered to eat was delicious and despite sitting in the rain in the garden we had an excellent meal under cover.

A good mix of starters, and we both had the roast turkey lunch. A four choice kids menu, and sticky toffee pudding was a big hit. Main thing was the nice relaxing atmosphere, set by the incredibly friendly and jolly staff.

Lovely ambiance and excellent service. Slightly disappointed with the pear and walnut salad but the steak and red wine sauce with mash and green beans was delicious.

Food is ok although the starters are expensive for the size, the service could be improved especially as an automatic service charge added.

All in all a nice place and very good lunch. The roasts were excellent (though I don't see the need for Yorkshire pudding with everything) bit the apple crumble very disappointing. Not at all a traditional crumble but not a good alternative! It seemed hastily put together (or hastily warmed up?) With barely cooked apple and a rather sharp overseer taste. The crumble was a thin sandy layer. My son's sticky toffee pudding was apparently fantastic. It was a very large portion and half would be fine for me.
Service was a bit patchy and abrupt and the pub felt cold. I mentioned this and was told there was nothing they could do about it, but was offered no explanation. It could be that due to Covid-19 they needed to keep a door open for air circulation.
I thought the food was generally really good and we were impressed. Also the menu was more interesting than at some other local pubs which only seems to offer burgers and other fast food style dishes. I would definitely go again but maybe wrap up warm!

Sunday lunch - roast beef was very red/pink which was fine by me but the friend I was with wasn't enjoying it.

Cheeseboard was lovely.

Lovely meal and staff with limitless patience, particularly given that we (party of 5; 2 adults and 3 children) turned up 30 minutes late without having had the courtesy to telephone ahead. Adult no.1's car and phone had flat batteries; Adult no.2 is just narcissistically late for everything. It must be acknowledged that Adult no.2 was unforgivably rude to the staff, complaining about everything, including raising objections to (a) the self-evidently sensible requirement that we wear masks, (b) the understandable prohibition against our feral children running around the communal areas, (c) the number of staff attentively waiting on us, (d) the size of the spoons (!), (e) the length of the drinks menu, (f) the request that we give the table back after an hour for deep-cleaning precisely because we used up our allotted time by turning up late, (g) the fact that the bill charged us for items that we had ordered and consumed, (h) and so it went on. I was deeply embarrassed to be part of it but, in equal measure, incredibly grateful to the saintly professionalism shown by the Lordship’s staff. Thank you for not tipping the Moretti over Adult no.2's head. I would have done so had I not already knocked back my glass of house Valpolicella in order to numb my ordeal. As a crumb of comfort, Adult 1 made Adult 2 walk home. Thank you for all your hard work.

Very nice meal, burger meat was not seasoned but apart from that very good. Scotch egg is amazing and steak pie very good also. Good, attentive service, plenty of space around tables.
