The pub has such great atmosphere but some of the meals were a bit of a let down. The food itself was great, but the serving size was very small for £17. We had expected a lot more for that kind of price.

Great gastro pub with very good food and short but seasonal menu and good products. The wine list is exhaustive and the staff is happy and able to recommend what you should pick. It’s the second time I go and I will go back. I also like the outside small terrace where you can sit for a smoke or have a drink

This is our "local" and never disappoints. The food and the service are excellent. The only quibble is with the price of the pan-fried turbot with confit fennel - £34 seems too high.

The dining area of the pub was unexpectedly closed due to an emergency plumbing problem on the day we booked for lunch.

We arrived and were greeted with apologies and fantastic service from the staff who were going completely out of their way to find alternative nearby pubs who could take lunch reservations. Outstanding service! Hopefully one day we can return to try the food.

This is one of my favourite local haunts and while the menu is small and changes daily I think it is usually outstanding with dishes packed with flavour and interesting combinations. It gets very busy when the weather is warm when the outdoor terrace is buzzing. You can't book a table outside but it's worth getting there early to sit there in this peaceful spot.

That was a nice pub. Good food but a little bit expensive (£24 for the Sunday Roast and the dessert was expensive for the quantity) and the service was quite slow. I would recommend the staff to ask the clients which size of the glass of wine they want. They don't ask so they bring the bigger glass...

Very noisy. We we’re 4 people aroubd a tavle and able to hear what the two on the other side of the table said.
As well, we arrived for our booked table 8.30pm and was only served the starters 9.00 and mains 10.15... and the place closed 11.30.. they apologiesed with extra bread, but not fair to wait that long.
Can only recommend this place for Sunday roast or outside eating. The place itself is lovely and good as a pub.

I’ve been coming to this restaurant for 5 years. And last Friday was the worst experience by far. The lamb and steak arrived cold (after waiting for an hour for it!). We sent it back, and the steak came back chewy and hard. And they didn’t bother heating the lamb, it was still cold. There was no one to speak to as the waitresses were avoiding the back room entirely. We complained again when someone finally came over 40 min later- and her response was “well what do you want me to do?”. We explained I couldn’t even eat my steak bc it was so rubbery. She just shrugged her shoulders and left us to it.

The bill came, and we asked to speak to the manager. She apologised as they were short staffed and it was a busy night, so we were given a “discount” on inedible steak and cold lamb. We then asked to remove service bc it was so appalling. Hugely disappointing.

I was recommended Ladbroke Arms by a friend who was a regular costumer a couple of years age. Sunday dinner with the grown up sons was terrific.
