    A really good menu with a super selection of dishes. Would recommend the chicken liver parfait starter and crispy belly pork main. Staff team was lovely, friendly and helpful.

    Really lovely service, but our roast dinner was fairly awful. Very tough beef, and some overcooked veg.

    I've been living near The Morgan for ten years and have seen managers and staff come and go. Sunday lunch, the roasts, has always been good. Yesterday it wasn't just bad but grim. I wanted to say something at the time, but my goodbye was in haste. I had roast beef, and it was awful; I'd never recommend The Morgan to anyone based on this lunch. The beef was two slivers of rather pink looking gristly beef. A cheap cut of beef, too. Over cooked potatoes and a Yorkshire pudding which looked like it came from a package. This came with undercooked white cabbage and a couple of grim looking carrots. Nothing green on the plate. I had to ask for more gravy. You cannot consider yourself a 'gastro' pub serving food this poor. It's hard to get a Sunday roast wrong, too. My friend's baked camembert was also awful and he is a restaurant owner himself. He couldn't finish it. No one complained, so I am doing this here. I'm assuming you have a new chef. If so, she he/she is awful and you need to hear this from a longstanding local resident. I wouldn't come back to The Morgan Arms for food again. I was also slightly embarrassed for my friends. It was a pretty bad experience. Staff were friendly and service was good, and I love the place. The bloody Marys were great. Food; nil points. You need to know.

    It took a long time for anyone to notice we were waiting to be seated, and once we had been we were informed they had very little choice left on the already limited menu. So we left.

    The Morgan ArmsResponded on September 2, 2022I'm sorry we've not been able to meet your expectations on this occasions. With the bank holiday weekend being exceptionally busy and issues with suppliers we unfortunately ran out of many items. Please do give us a try again as this is not our usual standard. Many thank - Team Morgan

    The pub was very busy and hence noisier than we find comfortable. The was no real ale and the Moretti was expensive and not to my taste. The glass of rosé was pleasant but also the smallest "medium" measure I can recall. We enjoyed our main dishes but the pudding was disappointing. The waiting staff were fine, despite the demand. I gather there was a nearby music festival which probably accounts for the busyness. I doubt if we will return on weekend.

    Always go to the Morgan as best place for Sunday Roast, in past 4-5 years. Yesterday had pork belly and was quite tough. Disappointed

I'm disappointed to hear that you are not satisfied with your visit and have taken on board your feedback about the roast pork.

    Very average, food was poor, not what I would describe as Gastropub! No body seemed particularly interested in making us welcome. Our waiter in particular seemed to take little pleasure in his job, although efficient enough. Last time I was there, some 10 years ago I remember things as being much better. No intention of returning as there are much better options.

    The restaurant part of the pub is lovely as the tables are not crowded into a cramped space. The food was delicious, (I plumped for the Sunday roast), and the staff were friendly and accommodating. The wine list was great too. All in all a lovely place to have Sunday lunch. Would recommend.

    No option to have roast dinners because apparently it has nuts. Disappointing

    The Morgan ArmsResponded on June 28, 2022Hi Alias, I do apologise for any confusion but our Roasts don’t contain nuts. We do have to advise that there may be traces due to the oil used to make the potatoes crispy. The vegetable oil is made in the same factory as nut oil so our allergen cards info caters for cross contamination. We can however absolutely cater for any nut allergies with the roasts by not frying the potatoes. Do visit us again one Sunday to enjoy a nut-free roast. All the best, team Morgan

    The food was really lovely. I had the vegan burger with skin on fries and my wife had the lamb. We were very happy with the food and the drinks where delicious and thirst quenching on a very hot evening. The staff where very friendly and the pub was clean. I would recommend highly and above some of the other pubs in the area, there are lots of good options round there but The Morgan is my new favourite.

    We have ate at Morgan arms many times and have never had any issues but this time the Sunday roast was just not good enough rock hard potatoes and Yorkshire puddings, raw cabbage a roasted carrot and a piece of dry chicken was apparently a roast dinner the staff were really nice and friendly which was nice , and when we mentioned this we were othered a free drink which we asked for but was told we were not allowed one of the drinks which we feel was not good enough, to be honest we should not have been charged for these shocking roasts and refunded we have a lot of friends in the area which we will feedback our thoughts, my review was just not good enough
