We came as a family of 5. Welcomed in by friendly staff who we got on really well with. Lovely home cooked food. I had a chicken and ham pie. Can't understand the bad reviews. You are at a lovely pub with amazing scenery paying £11 for a massive portion. People need to remember the sir Walter Tyrrell is a... More

Thank you for your kind words, especially with regard to your comments on the friendly staff and good home cooked food. You are correct in what you say, we are a pub, a beautiful pub in a beautiful part of the country, and we don't ever want it to be anything other than that. As a new, small family run... More

Took the family here for lunch today. Pretty empty yet barmaid forgot 3 out of 5 drinks (which they kindly comped us). Also forgot to order two of the kids meals. Ploughmans was fine, very average. Kids burgers were poor - all cheap bought in ingredients. The real question is why you'd go here rather than many of the better... More

Thank you for your review but I'm afraid I strongly disagree with your comments regarding the "cheap bought in ingredients" I can assure you they aren't, and I find your 2 star review a little unfair. The burgers are fresh from a very local farm as our the vast majority of our ingredients wherever possible. I can't comment on the... More

We had booked a table for nine for New Year Eve afternoon. When we arrived we stood for quite some time waiting to ask for our table. We were shown to our table and given some menus. The place was really cold although it was early afternoon. We ordered drinks from the bar which included a coffee. We waited a... More

We booked a table at this restaurant as it was the perfect meeting location for a large family get together. When we arrived we stood at the bar for ages waiting to order a drink, 2 waitresses were walking backwards and forwards behind the bar but were not making any eye contact and with the growing number of people waiting...

I wish I could give zero stars. The pub itself was freezing cold - our family had to wear our coats. Then the food arrived. It was disgusting. The carrots were raw. The gravy was water. The 'roast' beef was covered with gristle and fat, and covered in green blotches so was left untouched (see images!). The Yorkshire puddings were... More

We were recommended to come here when we needed a late lunch after visiting the area to look at a classic car. We were made very welcome on a quiet midweek November day, and our arrival at about 2.30 was no problem. Food very good, and if the Cajun hake with ratatouille is on the specials board again, go for... More

Been visiting this place for 27 years on and off. In it's heyday I've known them to turn out over 600 meals a day on a Summer weekend, without a single serious complaint. I've also been there and had a very disappointing meal. Like all 'destination' pubs, the Tyrell has suffered an overall loss of trade over the past years... More
