In difficult times the Bobbin yet again provided us with excellent food, drink and service. Very pleased to see that they maintain standards in what must be an incredibly difficult time to operate any kind of restaurant/bar, along with the friendly and efficient staff.
We had a very enjoyable evening, and will return!

We had a really lovely time at The Bobbin on Sunday. The garden is gorgeous, really well laid out and covered with a plastic roof and heaters (the pictures on here don’t do it justice!) It was warm and cosy with a lovely atmosphere. Staff were attentive, the food arrived quickly and was delicious. The menu has lots of options for large meals, roasts and small bites. Extensive wine list. Would highly recommend

As usual fantastic. They have covered the beer garden so there is good rain protection and are following all the rules. The food was excellent, I highly recommend the Cesar salad and the burger.

Lovely Staff, very attentive and helpful, nice venue.
Food was lacking though. Inconsistencies with the plating. One plate had lot of sides the other not, one plate had a lot of gravy the other had to request More because they had hardly any. Food was also a bit tired, the meat was warm not hot and potatoes were dry and a bit chalky. My understanding was it was coming to the end of Lunch service So I imagine that was the reason why. Book early to get better food rather then having to make do with what it seem to be left. I wouldn’t go back for the roast but would maybe try their regular daily menu

We were seated on the patio, which was so lovely! It’s fully covered and has lots of heaters, so even with the freezing cold temperatures in December we were quite comfortable. The food was good — I had the burger, which was really nice and the chips were absolutely delicious! They had mulled wine available, which was perfect for this time of year. The staff were incredibly hospitable, regularly checking on us and making sure we never went thirsty. We had a great time and will definitely be back!

Pre-lockdown #2 dinner with family, which was perfect. Service was really quick and friendly. I had the burger and my wife had the salad. My wife said my burger was the best she had ever tasted. I’m not sure what her salad tasted like! 😂

The Sunday roast was outstanding minus the slightly burnt Yorkshire Puddings. The service was almost too efficient with food on the table before we'd finished our first glass of wine. In summary, a really atmospheric and fun pub with superb food!

Poor food, poor service - very disappointed. We booked nearly a week in advance and were offered a barstool next to the front door. When we complained, we were moved to a makeshift table in the corridor between the bar and the main restaurant. you would think booking a week in advance you would have a proper table as there were others available.

Having read the timeout review we were very excited - but the Sunday roast we had was poor (dry potatoes, Yorkshire, and underdone veg with not enough gravy) when we complained nothing was really said and nothing offered as a make good.

Definitely will not be going back!

We booked an outside table for Sunday lunch, so I had visions of shivering in the rain - instead, the garden terrace was sheltered, attractive and cosy with super warm patio heaters. It was perfectly weather proofed and ideal for meeting other households in an outdoor space. Food was excellent, very good service and a great atmosphere. Highly recommended.
