Shocking …. Took our booking for outdoor seating and when we arrived told us no Sunday dinner outdoors and this wasn’t on app when booking. Very poor customer service when it was their error. We left and didn’t eat.

Booked table for Sunday Dinner for my Birthday with my wife and kids.

Nowhere did they say outside tables do not serve Sunday Dinners until I arrived.

The poor Waiter said I was one of many to complain of the same problem, had to have a Burger as little else on menu.

Ruined Birthday meal with family. Thanks!

Noticed after that they do Sunday Dinner deliveries!!! Ridiculous if that is the case but cant serve dinner in the outside Marquees

Also noticed other families arguing with same problem I had. One couple walked off fuming

Really enjoyed our food. Portion sizes very generous and didn’t have enough room to sample dessert. Will definitely be making a return soon!

Amazing food and service! We stopped going to the Ridgeway about 3 years ago as we had appalling service but since the change in management, we had heard good things and thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed!! Beautifully fresh, home cooked food at a very reasonable price. We will definitely be back!

Really disappointed as been before and was looking forward to the meal. Each course took a long time to arrive - we asked twice how long desserts would be. My main course was very bland - to be fair I let them know and they took it off the bill.

I went here with my wife and three kids (6, 8 and 10). Fantastic quality food and superb value for money - sadly we’re only here on holiday otherwise we’d be heading back there as regulars!

Food great!
Service was poor and we were made to feel that the waitresses were doing us a favour. They were rude and did not help when it came to splitting the bill. I will think twice about returning again.

After a long wait to place our order we enjoyed a really lovely Sunday lunch!
Plentiful hot and nicely served the only negative was the time we waited for our menu choices to be taken and our wait for cold desserts was far too lengthy especially for our two young Grandchildren.

Live in the area so pub is handy for us as walking distance so booked a table for Saturday late afternoon. One of my pet hates to be seated at a dirty table with someone elses food crumbs and drinks rings on, especially with covid, its essential to wipe tables down or at least check when your seating people who have pre booked. Anyway had a problem with the app, it wasnt working correctly to allow us to order our food and drink, 2 members of staff tried to no avail and it was the third staff member who got it to work, however this took nearly 15 minutes between us trying, staff trying etc and they wouldn't put an order through at the bar which i thought was a little bit inflexible. Anyway apart from that, service for food and drink was good and food tasted lovely. Enjoyed it overall.

Still a bit tedious having to use app to order with WiFi issues. wish the outside seating could come with option to open flaps of tent -staff lovely-food delicious not very busy a few more people would have given more atmosphere and again if we could have been seen from road might have increased business

Nice comfy seating, amiable & attentive staff, very good food. It did seem a little loud but there was an anniversary party and this was our first meal out since the start of the pandemic. We look forward to eating here again very soon.

I haven’t eaten at the Ridgeway for a while and I can say we were definately not disappointed! If you want a good steak go here! My fillet was amazing and my friends also said the ribeye was lovely too. Staff attentive. Prices were fair. Nice menu with lovely alternative options. Will definitely be back! The outside seating looked great too and had a nice buzz to it. Go check it out

We waited over 45 mins for our food. The Sunday roasts were average at best. Towards the end the waiteress literally harassed us for our plates despite my son still eating. Lovely looking restaurant though. Shame about the food and service. We won’t come back…

Lovely surroundings and ambience.
Unfortunately none of our apps worked to order food or drinks.
We were a table of 5 and we had to wait a very long time to have a drink and food. in fact we had to look for someone to serve us.
It let the pub down as it is a lovely place to eat.

Really lovely lunch with friends. The Indian Platter was delicious, bhajis and little overdone and could have been spicier for me, but really well presented and tasty. My friends enjoyed their Asian Platter. The churros for pudding were excellent and coffee always good. Great attentive service but just the right balance. Felt very covid-safe.

Miserable experience. Wish we bad booked elsewhere. Cold outdoor seating with no attempt to create acceptable seating. Depressing atmosphere and slow service. Disposable cutlery and plates. Poor quality snack food. This establishment has changed significantly. It is no longer even a restaurant. Just a rowdy outdoor boozer providing takeaway-standard fare for the post-work drinking crowd. We will not be coming here again.

Having not been to the ridgeway for over a year we were a little confused as to what to do after being shown to a table. The owners have done a great job of refurbing the outside area and making it covid safe for all. We swapped tables as it was a little windy (sorry to be 'those people'!) which wasn't an issue, staff were fab and super helpful.
The atmosphere felt a bit too quiet, the music could've been louder but that's my personal opinion.
Food here is soooooo good, value for money definitely. Can't wait to try more from the menu next time.
