Went to this refurbished Brains pub for lunch with work colleagues. Décor is very nice & this place was long overdue a refurbishment. Not busy when we visited so food didn’t take too long to arrive. We all had jacket potatoes with various fillings ok but nothing to write home about actual potato very small could have been bigger for... More

Restaurant was quiet,only three tables eating although the bar was busy. After choosing our meal we waited for the waitress to arrive she didn't, she was talking to the party on the next table who she obviously knew. So with a broken leg I went to the bar to order Twenty minutes later she came across and asked us did... More

All I can say is the refurbishment might be good but nothing else has improved! Absolutely dreadful disorganised staff and flustered manager! No cutlery on our table and when dinner came it was stone cold! After a complaint which was answered with' no one else has complained' reluctantly it was replaced with a hot one unfortunately Yorkshire was a pancake... More

I had the BBQ baby pork ribs and half roast chicken dinner. It was lovely and considering it's £7.99 and for an extra £2 you can get a starter or dessert, I find it hard to understand how anyone can complain. Also, the service was good and the staff are really friendly. Reserving a table for my family for next... More

Disappointed with meal this week, no coriander on Moroccan lamb, small portions, could have been hotter, ran out of custard for bread and butter pudding, coffee machine out of order. Overall disappointed but staff friendly.

We girls met here for a lunchtime catch up on Monday (30/01) and had a nice jacket potato with chilli each although there is quite an extensive menu we didn't want a large meal. It was quite quiet when we arrived but people began to come in as the time passed. The staff were friendly and helpful when we ordered... More

We have been to the Fox and Hounds many times since the refurbishment, having eaten there just a couple of times. First time was on the opening weekend-food was great, a lot of effort put in - after today's efforts it would seem that energy and attention to detail has already gone out of the window. We rang to book... More

Recently refurbished to more of a dining pub but has not lost the charm of a traditional pub. Brains pub with usual Brains food menu. Had a steak which was perfectly cooked and delicious. All 3 meals eaten were of excellent standard.

Recently refurbished the pub is now stylish and spacious yet still retains a coziness. The January deal, any bottle of wine £10 was true and we had a lovely Malbec normally around £16. We went for the 2 courses £9.50 . My husband had the burger, I had the chicken burger. The coleslaw was stale, the salad was half a... More
