                                              We dine at The Pinkneys Arms regularly and have no hesitation in recommending it. The food is always excellent and service good. The outside area is large with lots of shelter and the inside warm and cosy.

                                              This was a first for us, based on the web ratings, it looked worth a try. We were not disappointed, a compact menu made choices easier and going straight to the mains, the food and presentation were excellent, I heartily recommend their Lamb three ways! Friendly service then made for a memorable lunch and a desire to return.

                                              Booked a table in the restaurant at a less than ideal time, on account of limited availability. 5 minutes before we arrived we were told the restaurant was closed and that we’d be seated in the garden for the limited bbq menu. One chicken kebab ordered was undercooked, as was one of the three burgers. Burgers were also otherwise tasteless.

                                              Poor service. Couldn’t order food for over an hour. 1 out of 4 meals was delayed. Had to go to various bars to order different drinks. Not the best experience

                                              Food and service was excellent and very friendly. Bar was busy and crowded as barn was having a private function so felt quite cramped when eating but lovely pub

                                              Although our waitress was very pleasant the service was slow and patchy. We never received the olives we ordered before our main course. 2nd round of drinks ordered from the waitress did not arrive so had to go to the bar to get them ourselves. The bill had to be corrected twice before it was correct. We only had fish and chips and a duck salad, and the food was good but £68 plus tip for this, two pints of bitter and two glasses of wine is way overpriced for a pub garden, especially where the ketchup comes in sachets. But the beer is good and the atmosphere is always great, so we will keep going there but just for drinks, not to eat!

                                              Lovely pub. Been there many times. But sadly this time like many places very short in staff so service was very slow. Steak overpriced st £27…. Burger nice but could have had some salad on player. Fish was small but chunky chips were great. We will go again hoping yesterday’s experience was a one off

                                              Excellent food quality. Quite a limited menu choice and reasonably expensive. However given the quality of food for a special occasion it was great, helped by the excellent table service.

                                              The food was good if not exciting, and took a fairly long time to arrive. The service was good from the very young staff, who we felt would have benefited from some more guidance/training from whoever is in charge. They were welcoming tho and friendly; one of the waiting staff fetched a blanket for our table when the weather got colder. We appreciated the vegan menu, and the mushroom linguine was great

                                              It was advertised as an Irish night No Irish related food on the menu Very few Irish songs sung by the singers Overall not an Irish nigh Just another pub night.

                                              Lunch menu was not as comprehensive as on website. Fish and chips was ok, but batter over cooked. One pudding was very poor and left uneaten and when told staff member did nor seem to care. Service slow and another customer had to get up and find staff to get service.

                                              Excellent Sunday lunch as always, whether you pick the pork, beef or chicken they are all delicious and there is a vegetarian version. I love the fact that they always have a vegan option as well. The wine selection is very good! It is very noisy and the only downside is you have to practically shout across the table!

                                              just right for a relaxing Sunday lunch. Menu was a bit more limited than I expected based on what was on the website - but it was a good selection - well cooked food, welcoming and well mannered staff, really nice ambience.

                                              Disappointing. The sharing platter starter was presented very well. When our main dish of fish and chips eventually arrived, it looked good on the plate, however there was too much batter, albeit very tasty, and very little fish inside. The chips were not very crispy.

                                              So much nicer in the Barn - too many tables on top of each other in the bar area.
