    Food was very good. Could do with better starter choices. Atmosphere was very good. Decent prices for drinks. Service was good except we were forgotten about after the main courses and had to ask for the dessert menu. Overall though would go again,

    My friend & I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch when we visited the Thomas Egerton yesterday. As usual, all our food was delicious. We had our favourite starter of smoked salmon, sun dried tomato & cream cheese crostinis, followed by beer battered haddock with wonderful home made tartar sauce, hand cut chips (& salad instead of mushy peas) For dessert we had ice creams. We received a warm welcome from Carla, who, as always, looked after us really well throughout our visit. The pub is always clean, warm & organised when we visit & the staff attentive & friendly. Highly recommended.

    I booked the Thomas Egerton for a family meal. The staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming, in particular the manager Josh, makes everyone feel comfortable, we had a mix of ages in our party and he adapted accordingly. The table was already set up with a child seat when we arrived, which demonstrates they do take note of on-line requests. The menu is varied, we all chose different things and all arrived in good time and was perfect. On this occasion we ate inside, however, the Thomas Egerton does have a great outdoor seating area, which is great in the warm weather. Highly recommended and will not be the last time we visit.

    The food was decent but the service was awful. We prebooked a table by the window which was duly given but this was let down by poor service which felt really inattentive. Serving staff were too busy talking to each other and everything felt as if it were a long delay such as taking our order. It was especially a long time for dessert orders to be taken. The overall impression was that we were being neglected. Despite this, we will try one more time and hope that this comment sharpens up the service which if improved would make a great difference to the overall experience as the menu choice and food are good. We would recommend it to a friend if we found evidence that the service is up to the standard of the food.

    We were a party of 10 people celebrating a birthday, food and service excellent and at a reasonable price, it was 5.15pm on a Sunday so quite busy and noisy, but that may be just me!! My one criticism was there were no windows available to open as it was extremely warm, again that may just be me!!👍👍
