Lovely meal. Best chips I’ve had in a long time. Excellent value & very attentive service. Highly recommended. Surprised they were so quiet. Go there!
A return visit which as before was very enjoyable. Good food well prepared in a most convivial atmosphere by the friendly host and his wife.
The Queen Adelaide offers great food, great service and always a friendly welcome! Excellent Gluten Free options available and a lovely walk nearby at the lake.
The food was excellent and served quickly. The landlord and his wife were very pleasant and spent time chatting to us. Will definitely visit again when in the area.
Limited lunchtime menu; however the specials, which were recommended, were truly excellent: pan-fried haddock was moist and delicious whereas the steak and kidney pie was simply brilliant. Locally sourced puddings were also very good. Landlord was a genial host who made us feel most welcome. If you didn't want the specials there was little else on the menu, if you were in search of a full meal; thus one down from top marks.
Really lovely pub, the food was amazing, the people were super friendly and did everything they could to make us feel comfortable and well fed! I can't have dairy or gluten and it was the best dinner out I have had in a long time. I would definately recommend this place.
The food was delicious and the service swift and attentive with staff checking each individual was happy. The landlord and landlady were lovely and the pub was clean, warm and inviting. My party enjoyed a relaxed and fun evening. No problem with car parking We would definitely go again.
Most of the staff where very accommodating and friendly especially the male owner who manned the bar. However it was really didn't make up for by the attitude of the female half of the ownership team. I don't think I've ever experienced someone be so blatantly rude to my face when taking a food order. My partner was not impressed and wanted to leave before we had even eaten. Due to this we would not go back again despite it being a very clean well looked after country pub. Really disappointed, having worked in hospitality myself for many years I find there to be no reason for muttering "oh for God's sake" when you are dealing with a customer. Just unforgivable especially when their request was polite and not at all unreasonable.
A nice traditional pub with a limited but very good menu of home-cooked food. Their menu is online and you can request a particular dish at the time of booking. We have been there twice and both times it was excellent
Staying nearby and came across the Queen Adelaide on Tripadvisor. Not the prettiest of country pubs from the outside (competition is stiff around here) but so glad we found it. Very friendly welcome and really nice, hearty food. The homemade steak & kidney pie was lovely!
