    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!!👍👍

    We eat a lot here but tonight, there was a table of younger people one vaping while I was eating. The bar member who served us seemed like she was in a grumpy mood and very short in her answers. Good things, food as always was outstanding. Front of house guy (I think the owner) was amazing. Servingg staff where very courtious

    We went for Father’s Day and were told the day before that the oven had broken so there would be a reduced menu. My partner is gluten free so we chose this place for the varied menu. She ended up having 3 snacks from the menu which wasn’t what she wanted and wasn’t filling but the only thing available for her dietary requirements. Unfortunately 24 hours wasn’t enough notice to book somewhere else on Father’s Day. This being said, the staff were lovely and very welcoming. I would recommend for the quality of service it was just a bit of a shame about the food.

    It was lovely but I must say I did prefer the old menu that had the selection of sandwiches and chips which is handy if you are meeting friends and having a snack. The new menu just didn't quite do it for me.

    Food was very good (pulled pork gyro and cheese and onion pie) including properly cooked chips which is getting rarer these days. Service also friendly. Could be a bit more variety on the menu (eg sandwiches) but otherwise an excellent choice.
