This is my Favourite place for Sunday lunch and a gin. Dogs are also welcome in the bar. Great place to chill out and warm up by an open fire.
Terrific Mother’s Day meal. Very attentive staff and the king prawn starter is to die for. Will not hesitate to return for Sunday lunch. Excellent
Service and food very good will go back again menu selection had a good variety Friends I was with, thought exactly the same as myself
The service was fantastic as always and the food was even better! The food was served very quicky and we will definately be visiting again.
A very disappointing start to the evening when we were brusquely ushered downstairs despite being booked upstairs! Downstairs is too crowded and the tables so close together I could not physically get both legs under the table. A much more caring waitress spotted our plight and offered us a table upstairs. This is a proper dining room and a delightful space which was not being used, however there was a lovely log fire burning and we were given a table in front of it. Excellent. The waitresses and service were fantastic as was the food. What a wasted room this is, they cram people in downstairs probaby unlikely to return (for that reason) when they could have a superb dining experience upstairs. I really can't understand the management's reasoning! Full marks to the waitress who saved our evening, turning it from a potential disaster to a thoroughly enjoyable occasion. Not so many marks though to the gentleman who showed us to our table when we arrived.
It was the first time we have visited the Blackbird since its refurbishment. I remember it from previous years as an olde world type pub with small linking rooms. The refurbishment has opened up the inside. While loosing some of its old world charm it is more fit for purpose now as a gastro pub. We had a Sunday lunch menu, which was all that was offered on a Sunday. It was a very limited choice for mains but all that was ordered was good. A good choice of vegetables was provided making the main choice quite substantial. There was a better choice for starters and desserts. All six of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal, my favourite being the homemade panettone pudding which was yummy. The waiting staff work very hard and were friendly making the whole experience an enjoyable trip out. Will definitely be back, very impressed. Look forward to trying the everyday menus. Thanks.
first visit and we really enjoyed our meal. the staff were very friendly, and the food was lovely. I had fillet steak it was cooked perfectly to my liking, wife had chicken, and she loved it. were never hurried between courses and the sweet was worth waiting for. will definitely be back. only one minor criticism if any, with not having been before and not knowing were restaurant was, we entered through a packed bar and had to push through one way then back again. but don't let that put you off.
We had a lovely meal and the chef was willing to meet specific requirements on an item, which was a big help. However, the mish-mash of chairs in The Tunnel room caused problems with us and other guests. I was not at all comfortable and another table kept moving round to find one the correct height for the table! To us it looked as if you had just gone to a sale room and bought a job lot of non-matching chairs. We were served by a lovely young girl, who was charming and helpful. On the whole, an enjoyable evening to celebrate our anniversary.
Could not fault service or surroundings.Very welcoming . However the food ( I ordered a beefburger ) was very poor quality and did not justify the price charged. I have had beter beefburgers in Macdonalds for a fraction of the price.The beefburger was hard seemed to be overcooked , bacon also hard and tasteless . Slices of what appeared to be tomato added direct from the freezer was served togethger with a stale lightly toasted bread bun .The only redeeming feature was the battered onion rings which had obviously been freshly cooked unlike the rest of the meal which appeared to have been taken direct from the freezer from the freezer and not very sucessfully defrosted . It did appear that the whole meal was hastily put together with
On arrival we were shown to a bar room table that was such a height as to require bar stools to sit and eat Sunday lunch which was totally unacceptable, we were then shown to a small table which was barely large enough to sit four people never mind the five that we had booked for, food orders were taken and the staff later informed us that there was a 40 minute delay to service. The table was too small to accommodate the drinks and the food so some drinks were needing to be placed on a ledge behind the bench seat, once the accompanying vegetables arrived it was difficult to accommodate these dishes too and the whole experience felt cramped. The waitress managed to pour the gravy from one of the plates she was serving into the lap of the guest she was standing beside. Not the best experience of dining and we will certainly be trying other establishments before trying this one again.
