The venue was great. We went there at 12 and the manager was very sweet and friendly. The food was ok but I expected better considering its reputation

I had the vegan Wellington roast which was very good. Love the choice of a vegan Wellington, usually places just do a nut roast. The food was fab, the staff attentive and the pub lovely and clean. The only criticism I have is that none of the desserts were vegan.

Hi Brit, Thank you for your kind words and review of the pub. I'm glad you enjoyed the vegan roast and I will take on the advice to get some vegan dessert on the menu. Best, The Morgan Arms

Great food and great service, my only criticism is that the menu is a little pricey, however the food was excellent (way above what you would typically expect from a pub) so we did not mind paying for this.

The only complaint was our table for two, being in the middle of the room, in front of the exit door and the bar. Just not cool. Might be good to move or remove that table.

Staff and service on point as always at, really feel welcomed and looked after. Unfortunately the roast was not as good as normal, used to rate the roast as as one of my favourites but this time the food was underwhelming, pork belly was good but the veggies, roast potatoes, and gravy was bland, under seasoned and dull. I'm sure it was just a one off.

Nice roast when you don’t fancy making one yourself! 4 meat options and a vegan option. The vegan roast was good but could have done with extra veg in place of the Yorkshire pudding. Food came really quickly but didn’t feel rushed. Would come back but would like to see a vegan dessert on the menu!

Very quiet night. Slightly disappointing that despite coming early and it not being busy the lamb wasn’t available, which was a shame. Also not doing steak any more. I don’t consider a burger is a sensible alternative if you fancy some beef.

Dishes all very tasty as always - seabass, crab starter, ravioli. Puddings also their usual hearty selves.

Very good Grüner Veltliner that also turned out to be the last bottle.

Felt a bit disappointing compared to the many good meals I’ve enjoyed over the years - no specials and no cocktails (not even a bloody mary?) any more.
