Food was delicious and the service was fantastic. Great local pub.
Staff very friendly and helpful. Food great quality at a good price. Highly recommended.
Great experience as always: Customer service very friendly. The Sunday roast is very good as in the other pubs of the same group (the Avalon & the Stonehouse)
Delicious food, wonderful staff, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Thank you.
Second recent visit to The Tommyfield for Sunday lunch and once again had a great time. Staff here are really lovely and manage a full pub confidently and calmly. Food is very good, especially the baked Camembert to share starter. Lamb burger was a little underseasoned but easily fixed with a bit of salt & pepper. Steak & ale pie was very good. Would (and will) go back.
The Tommyfield is part of the Three Cheers Pub Group and displays the usual high standards that we have come to expect from the establishments in this ownership. Here you will find ample portions of up market pub grub with a twist and friendly attentive service. Not the place to go for cheap eats but nevertheless good value for money. Highly recommended.
The experience was not great at all and I will not be returning. The staff are pleasant and helpful but the food and atmosphere was dreadful. To be fair, there was a big sporting event on and so the pub was very busy and as a consequence very very loud with people shouting and singing. This clearly does not represent a normal night I'm guessing. It didnt make a pleasant evening though as you could barely hear yourself speak. The food was awful. The sour dough bread was hot, very very hot to the point where it couldnt be picked up. It seemed an odd way to present it, room temp yes, possibly warm but hot, hot! No. The duck appeared over cooked - the skin should've been crispy and was limp and very greasy. It was warm as against hot. It was served with a couple of sides, the portion of mash was very small. The pork belly appeared to have been reheated - it wasn't great. The fat was not crispy and so couldnt be eaten it was simply chewy with no flavour. It was served with a very small portion of mash and limp, over cooked cabbage, traditional of course but not flavoursome at all. We were offered free dessert but even this was not hot - clearly it'd been heated in a microwave and so one part of it was warm whilst the other cold. Not nice at all. I wont be returning to be honest which is a shame as it's local. There are however a number of other restaurants and a gastro pub opposite which have provided a better level of service and quality for similar money.
Haven't eaten here for a while but it's usually my go-to local eatery as the food has been very good and the atmosphere warm (noisy). Rather disappointed last night - nothing major but the dishes were unremarkable to the point of being bland: the gravadlax starter, though sweet and melting, lacked any sharpness to give it a tang; roasted squash with tofu, giant couscous and salad greens looked amazing but again was disappointingly under-seasoned/under-dressed. My guests ate respectively the pork belly (usually a winner) and the venison pie (which arrived with a ring of blackened, burnt pastry around the edge) and both were deemed 'fine' with a half-hearted smile - damned with faint praise. Both of them felt the portion of accompanying mash was surprisingly mean. We skipped dessert. On the plus side the prices are (IMO) reasonable.
Ordered the beer-battered halloumi, which was really tasty, and the chips as good as always. Was placed at a table with a breeze in a cooler part of the restaurant by the waiter, as it was quite hot where we were initially! Had a tastecard for 50% off food, so really good value! Paid at the bar and ordered a couple of extra drinks at the same time, which had service charge put on them as well, which was annoying (as this was another c.£1.50 on the bill for drinks which I got myself). Still, great meal and got served quickly before the comedy.
Two of our party of four arrived early but table was ready and it was no problem to wait for the other two before ordering. Two real-ales on handpump including the in-house brew which was a little lively. Initial choice of wine was not available but alternative was fine. Each of the party had a different dish, Steak Pie, Wild Boar Pie, Hake and another fish dish, all were good, pies were large and tasty. We have eaten in two of the other pubs in this group (Abbeville & Stonhouse) and this experience was just as good as those.
