Great pub! There was a problem with our food order, it didn’t go through on their system properly so we waited quite a long time for it to come out. Once we double checked with a member of staff and they realised the error they apologised, the food came out within 15 minutes and they offered us a round of drinks for the inconvenience. Can’t knock them whatsoever. Not only was it one of the best pub roasts I’ve ever had but the staff were all really friendly and helpful.

Hi Jonny, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such great feedback. We’re sorry that there were some complications to start with but we’re so glad to hear that you ended on a great experience with us - and we’ll take that “best pub roast” comment straight to the kitchen.

Hi Patricia, We’re sorry that you feel like you didn’t have a 5 star experience with us this time around. The issue of running out of Chardonnay is purely down to the busy bank holiday weekend, but we do apologise for any inconvenience caused. Unfortunately, there is a nationwide gas shortage at the moment but we’re hoping to get them back up and running as soon as possible. Thank you for your feedback and apologies once again.

This venue has always been a favourite and during half lockdown is no exception. The food is better than your usual pub food, the service is friendly, the atmosphere is delightful, the outdoor booths are a real treat. They have taken the covid measures seriously yet still managed to maintain a friendly personal vibe

I had asked about the football three times to switch it over which was very frustrating. Not an ideal seating arrangement either.

Wandle
Responded on April 22, 2021

Hi Rob, We're sorry to hear that some of your expectations were not met on this occasion. This was our very first Friday after the most recent lockdown. With us still being under a lot of pressure with COVID-19 guidelines, and the limited capacity that we have with just outdoor seating, we are left with the very tricky task of managing all of our customers expectations. We absolutely are trying our best in this difficult time and will continue to do so. Apologies, Team Wandle

Roast was disappointing as the veg wasn’t good properly so it was pretty hard. Also my food was cold. I also ordered a pudding but also took over 40 to be served and this was also pretty Luke-warm when it came after chasing it.
Great beer garden and drinks though and the staff were polite.

Nice venue. Waitering staff could have been more attentive as it was difficult to get their attention. The curry was difficult to eat with some elements being extremely hard! Felt pressured to order starters for the "substantial meal" requirement when ordering drinks, when we were in fact there for dinner in any case.

Wandle
Responded on December 15, 2020

Hi there, Sorry that we were unable to make this a 5 star visit and that you felt pressured in any case. Our team have had the tricky task of manoeuvring around new and continuous rules and regulations from the government and the need for a substantial meal is no exception to that. We're aware that this makes things a little trickier when ordering drinks but unfortunately our hands are tied. Hopefully this will be over soon, but until then we'll continue to try our best.
