I opted for the Sunday 3 courses for £14.95 and I will be going back. The pate was tasty, it came with fresh chopped salad,caramelised onions and warm soft ciabatta bread. the mixed meat Sunday dinner was delicious, everything tasted fresh and came with a large Yorkshire pudding, I had to leave 2 large roast potatoes to make room for for sticky toffee pudding with ice cream. The 2 young girls who served us were very pleasant, always smiling and very polite.

Food and Price is excellent at the Ley Inn. We were seated in the restaurant area for our second visit. The main issue is the service, whilst you are quickly seated and orders taken, the service after this is very slow, check backs done when your pretty much finished and find it difficult to get a member of staffs attention to order more drinks/ask for dessert menus without getting them yourself. Time waiting between courses can also be quite long. Atmosphere is good and food quality excellent!

We had the steak and it was cooked to a perfect medium rare, and the house Merlot was the perfect choice of wine to complement the food. I would thoroughly recommend The Ley Inn.

Excellent service and food at the Ley Inn, nothing too much trouble even though it was a very busy evening we had a lovely meal. We were told there may be a wait for food as the pub was busy but we only had to wait about 10 minutes. Recommended

shown straight to our table. Got the drinks order slightly wrong but more than made up for it with great food and service. Beautfully decorated. Only think I can complain about is the toilet cubicles are far too small. Any one that's large will really struggle in the first cubicle.

As always, the food, surroundings, service and atmosphere were excellent. The deal on offer was good (two courses for £11.95) and the free bottle of birthday wine for fob holders, was not just restricted to one type of house wine.

The service was prompt and staff were friendly. The food was tasty but the teryaki steak seemed to be a steak with just a saucevover the top rather than properly marinaded. The restaurant is pleasant and offers relaxing surroundings where you can enjoy your meal without being rushed.

Reasonable value,let down by not getting quite what you ordered and nobody coming to ask you if everything ok!! 2 of our party ordered burgers and had to ask for ketchup of which we were given 2 sachets not each between us!! On a better note the dessert of the specials menu was very good. Overall ok but won't be rushing back.

We had quite a ong wait for our main meal which was disappointing. We also thought we had read somewhere that if you had a fob that if it was your birthday you got a free drink. This was not offered , was that wrong?

We have been quite a few times but the last 2 times when it has been busy we have had to wait a long time for our meals. We where booked in at 7.15, Our starters arrived at 8.45, we could see people getting fed up and 3 people walked out which does not give a good atmosphere. Very disapointing

Great food but poor service from argumentative staff. It is a shame as in the main the food is ok but to argue with a customer over waiting times is appalling

The service was slow. We had a long wait for average food. Previous visits were much better for menu, service and food and was as busy.

Terrible experience. Ludicrously expensive awful food. Long 45 minute wait, sat under a loud speaker play thrash metal music. Further waiting around just pay the bill. Rude unhelpful staff. Will never go again. Avoid ! I see this place has been reviewed as a 'Joke' before. Now beyond a joke !
