No pork so two dishes of the menu. Then the menu says root vegetables of which there were none only what appeared to be some kale mix (totally unappetising)
A very disappointing Sunday experience

We booked a table for early evening on a Saturday and when we ordered at least 4 meals were unavailable, on the 5th choice only 1 portion was left so two of our party couldn’t order what they had chosen. When we ordered dessert, two were again unavailable. Poor excuse given, we were told due to the new menu the dishes were more popular than anticipated.

A wide choice of food available, cooked very well (although the veg was quite sparse with the main course), the ambience is nice, service was a quite slow with main course coming out of the kitchen - had to wait a long time between starter and main course - the waitress was great. Overall a really nice place.

Amazing food and great atmosphere.

Service is average - always very busy and service seems very rushed.

They accommodated a last minute increase in diners on a very busy evening. Food and service was fabulous. We really enjoyed the evening. Thank you

Excellent food, apart from the cheese soufflé, that was not a soufflé... The service was outstanding, Lisa was very kind and professional. A little bit too noisy, but acceptable for a Saturday evening. Very satisfied, we’ll come back soon

Our first visit since the restaurant was refitted. Nice ambience and the welcome was fast and efficient. Although we had arrived an hour earlier than our booking we were instantly shown to our table near the real open fire, very cosy. The menu, although, not vast was comprehensive and offered a range of choices to suit most tastes. The service was prompt and efficient and the food was well presented, tasty and reasonable value. Overall a good birthday experience

Lovely restaurant! I went for Sunday lunch with my family, great food although service wasn’t particularly good!
We had to ask the waitress for cutlery and condiments and never received the condiments. When she brought our food over she waited for us to take it off the tray, definitely requires more training especially in customer service!

The food was excellent, so was the atmosphere. The only room for improvement should be the service, which we felt rushed. The main course was placed on the table when one of us was away, and we didn't have much time to enjoy and talk between courses.

A poor experience overall. Table booked for 8pm, arrived on time, restaurant chaotic, no one to tell we had arrived, found someone after 10 minute wait in crowded bar, having overheard barman having to tell frustrated customers he would get to them but there would be a wait - not his fault, he was clearly rushed off his feet and doing his best - this person turned out to be the manager, she had no table for us despite an empty table that apparently we weren't allowed, she didn't particularly care as she was very stressed and near the end of her tether, told we would just have to wait, pointing at 2 chairs in the bar not occupied, there were 4 of us. Very poorly handled, clearly the restaurant had been greedy, accepting too many bookings without the capacity to service them....so who suffers? Everyone, customers and staff alike. We encouraged her to offer us a drink while we were forced to wait, she did so with bad grace and then got the order for mineral water, lemonade and half a beer wrong.

Waited 30 minutes more before sitting down when the empty table available when we arrived was still empty.

Service then slow, food ok but not special, and reflected the kitchen being under pressure, by then evening spoiled. Waitress did her best under pressure and we felt sorry for her.

We shalt be back for sometime.

Very reliable pub with high quality food. Setvice is warm but at times can be slow. I never go when I am in a rush. Ample parking and good outside seating.

Tasty food, nice atmosphere and good range of food on the menu. Only criticism is the seemingly unnecessary mixing of meats in most dishes - chicken with pork, lamb with veal, venison with beef. We would have appreciated meats to be accompanied by their own juices/meats etc.

Started off well with good service but seemed they were a little short staffed and our waitress wasn’t very knowledgeable about the dishes. Very long wait between starter and main - around 30 minutes. Couple to our left only ordered mains and ordered whilst we were eating our starters yet received their food within 10 minutes and couple to our left who ordered before the other couple even even sat down (and again only mains) got their food after we did! Husband said it was the worst steak he’s ever had so we decided not to bother with dessert or coffee and paid the bill and left. Also took ages for the tables to be cleared. Not sure we’ll be going back

Have had many enjoyable evenings at The Warren, for drinks and dinner. Sadly this visit was not up to the usual high standard I’ve received. I was one of a party of three, and ordered the fillet steak, cooked medium. My eldest son had the big steak, cooked medium/rare and my other son the chicken burger. The staff were very friendly and welcoming (as always) but the food did take a while to arrive and the place didn’t appear to be overly busy. My steak was well done and I had to return it. In the mean time my sons carried on eating and had finished by the time my steak was replaced. I wasn’t charged for my meal but the timing of the meal was thrown completely. I won’t let it put me off returning as the place is great but not on this evening, sadly. Can’t
fault the staff, who were great.

Out for lunch for a friend's birthday. She
loved the ambience, food, service and the whole bar/restaurant. A great success!
Every time I've eaten at the Warren, the meal has perfectly fitted the occasion. Really good for getting together with friends.

I thought you were very help full as i can not eat large meals and you put a main meal smaller for me.
