Easy to book online. First visit. Will go back. Loved the Yorkshire Puddings.
Great choice and quality food and service, would thoroughly recommend.
Fantastic meal , sadly were fully booked up for rooms
Food nice good selection of beers and wines will go again.
The food is lovely, and the staff helpful. The pub /restaurant is really nice and full of character. We were disappointed with their treatment of us as gluten free guests. They have some items labelled as "free of gluten", and some things they can adapt. We ordered Sunday dinner, we couldn't have gravy or yorkshire puds, then they told us they fry the roasties in a fryer used for wheat so we couldn't have them either. So they said we could have extra veg and mash, but that didn't happen. So, thanks for trying Wooly Sheep, but it wouldn't take much for you to be able to provide really good gluten free food, a bit of instant gravy, and a bit of extra veg or some frozen GF yorkshires warmed in the oven would have made all the difference to us. As it was we had a nice meal but my hubby left hungry and we are unlikely to be back
We joined in with steak night both of us having rump steaks medium and medium well done. The medium well done was closer to medium but still very nice. Both steaks came with coffee of potatoes - we had hand cut chips which were freshly cooked. My only complaint would be that any other side eg tomato or mushrooms were extra and also the sauces which were on the thin consistency side. The plates of food went down very well and not too much. A bonus of having a bottle of wine at no charge - choice of any wine. We will visit again.
Really nice food. Vegetables were cooked perfectly, the steak & ale pies were delicious. We were very impressed at the free pint of Timothy Taylor’s beer with our dinner, and amazed at the voucher for a free half pint per person in our room. Bar staff and restaurant staff were happy, attentive, quick and courteous...pretty well perfect. The pub was bustling, and we’re not at all surprised why that’s the case! This is a lovely town pub where service and quality are absolute priorities - excellent! All pubs should be this good!
The restaurant was busy but we had booked in advance. We ate from the lunch menu which was a fairly extensive pub style menu although there was a specials board. All four of us had the regular fish and chips. They were very good and we liked the Timothy Taylors beer batter with bread crumbs. Two of us had the jam roly poly and two the treacle tart. The tart was very good but a bit hard. A good meal and friendly service.
Having to pass through a crowd of extremely drunk people is not my idea of a fun night out (It was a Saturday). One person actually careered into a sign sending it crashing to the ground as he tried to navigate his way around a corner. The food was reasonable but not anything to shout about - overall - disappointing. The potato really did taste as though it had been re-heated and I wish I had pointed this out at the time. The server was polite and helpful and some attempt was made to accommodate one of our parties' allergies - although initially they still sent out the food with the sauce that could harm her!!! I won't be rushing back or recommending to others.
We reserved a table, on line, the day before our visit. Our table was ready and we were served immediately. The menu was comprehensive. I had the pate and blade of beef. Both were of expensive restaurant standard. My only regret is that I was too full for a desert! Service was excellent.
