Service was extremely slow despite enough staff around. Clearly they were more interested in chatting with their mates/ other colleagues than serving guest. We waited along time for food and when we asked about it no one came back to inform us. When the food eventually arrived they had messed up one of the pizzas, no apologies or explanations. I was given the correct one afterwards but still no apology etc. No one check back on us and we had to get someone’s attention to order another round of drinks. We asked for the bill and waited a nearly a half hour to pay because they were all too busy having a little gossip session with their mates/colleagues and kept ignoring us when we tried to get their attention to pay. It wasn’t the experiencing I was expecting! They need to get rid of some of the staff or do something because it was a dreadful time.

Cold roast had to be sent back for all 4 of us.

Next roast came out and the potatoes were hard and not crispy at all because they had clearly just cooked them after our complaint.

Then we all ordered the crumble and that was cold in the middle and the fruit was hard where it hadn't been cooked long enough.

Overall very disappointing.

We go to The Pinkneys often for drinks and occasionally for food. In this occasion the entire experience was poor. The service was terrible, our order was forgotten, when I eventually chased it it was rushed out and the order was wrong. The main course Prawn linguine was tiny and only had 3 prawns in it, for £23.
The service was not attentive at all and it seemed like the entire staff was preoccupied. A real shame as we usually enjoy visiting this pub.

Very pleasant evening out. High quality food (very good meet) and young, inexperienced, but very willing staff who had a good humour. I always like people who are nice to my dog.

A friendly local pub, nice and comfortable inside seating area, good food reasonably priced, just a little slow from order to table so don't go if your short of time.

Only ran a small bbq & pizza menu, which we were not made aware of when booking.
No starters or snacks or desserts on offer - just a box of crisps at the bar (and this was on the bank holiday)
Slow to moderate service overall, but still very friendly.
The burger itself was amazing - so that's your saving grace

We have booked a standard table and when arrived we were told no tables available and all tables were outside and order just to be ordered at the bar.
I told the manager why app allowed me to book and he said app (opentable) never work.

We didn’t have dinner.

Thoroughly enjoyed the food and excellent but slowish service; however the meal was almost ruined by constant and very loud barking of several dogs brought in by guests.
Perhaps the restaurant might benefit from a rule about troublesome dogs.

We had to wait quite a while for a while for our food and it didn't seem overly busy.
We had 2 children with us so was hard to keep them amused while waiting.
But when the food came it was really lovely.
Would go again but next time without the grandchildren

We had a lovely time sitting on the terrace with our friends. The food was very good although a tad expensive, as was the wine. However the presentation and service were both completely excellent and we had a very happy time and planning to return.

Great food but somewhat pricey..
Slow but friendly service although they didn’t appear that busy.
I guess that resulted in the lovely relaxed atmosphere and we weren’t in a hurry.
Great garden.
