Been twice now and still just as impressed by the food. Table not in the best situation this time but staff, as usual, are lovely and helpful. Covers a whole range of dietary requirements. Recommended.

Our first visit. We went for Sunday lunch. We were delighted with the food, especially as my husband is gluten intolerant. Everything was local, fresh, and beautifully cooked. We managed the full 3 courses, but didn't need to eat again until the next day! We are fussy about our coffee. It was served exactly as we requested. Nice staff too.

As this was our first time dining at the Warren we were unsure what to expect. But we were not disappointed the specials included mussels which are a great favourite of ours and the Hogget was exceptional. It was all really fresh and the use of local supplies was evident. Thanks for a great evening.

Third visit to The Warren. The first was on my birthday last year and they were most welcoming. The second was on New Year’s Eve and we had a great time. The third was last Sunday, where we had a superb Sunday lunch!

Lovely meal with our two girls (3 & 6). The staff were fantastic with the children & the food was really good. It would have been nice to see some veg with the children’s sausage & chips but that would be my only minor criticism

Been twice and enjoyed both times. Table by the kitchen door reduced the experience the second time. Very good vibe the first time. Excellent ingredients, well cooked on both occasions. Definitely recommend

We (party of 3) ate here on 2 consecutive nights. The first night we’d pre booked a table online (which was really easy to do) we were so impressed with the place and the food (all from local producers) we decided to go back the following evening. As we didn’t have a table reserved we rang up on the off chance they could fit us in at such late notice on a Saturday night. We lucked out and they were able to fit us in. Fabulous place, outstanding food, friendly efficient staff. What’s not to love?!

Lovely meal. Great atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed the quiz.
I think there may need to be a review of the recipe for the raspberry cocktail as it wasn’t particularly drinkable but it didn’t take away from the great experience we had.
We’ll definitely be coming back.

Went back after excellent first meal there. Raved about the bread used there, but it wasn't as good this time. Quirky surroundings, but very nice though. Main meal (Hake for me, Veggie burger for my wife) was excellent. Will return.

We were looking forward to our meal at The Warren last Sunday but were a bit disappointed with the overall meal. My beef was well-cooked as I requested but it was chewy and a bit tasteless. My partner had the pork, which he said was edible. There were no summer vegetables available, simply kale, red cabbage and a small portion of cauliflower. The gravy was salty. We thought the meal was a tad overpriced for what we had. Don't think we will go again.

Took my wife, daughter and granddaughter out for Sunday lunch
Enjoyed the Pork lunch and my daughter is vegan and she had a good meal as well
Reasonably priced to smiles all around
