We booked a table for 4 adults and 3 children, with two high chairs, for a Sunday lunch. We had booked early, because as anyone knows when you have children they need feeding quickly. They brought two high chairs out, both needed a clean and one didn’t haven’t any straps on for the baby to be secured. Thankfully we had... More

It was with great trepidation that we all decided to eat at The Old Beams, we had heard all the bad press about the place? All the bad reviews? However 7 hungry Anglers after a cold and windy day beside the river, need feeding! And as the pub/restaurant was only a stones throw from our B&B it made good sense... More

Dead flowers on sticky tables. Staff not very welcoming and not attentive. Food average and rather greasy. Not good!

We booked a table for 4 people for Sunday 5 March. Only to get there to be told that as it was quiet the manager had closed the kitchen. Would have been nice if we could have been contacted, To make matters worse all the local pubs had stopped food at 8.00pm. Plus we had come quite away by cab... More

Well it with a heavy heart I have to rate it poor, firstly we were shocked at the price for a Sunday carvery as it was raining heavily decided to take the hit, when we got to counter couldn't believe there was such a little choice as blackboard stated with all the trimmings which I thought means more than potatoes...

I understand the place has recently been taken over by new management, and having looked through some previous reviews we nearly went somewhere else. It seems however that the place has found its feet after a dodgy transition. We stopped off for lunch, my partner and I, and we were pleasantly surprised by how lovely the whole experience was. Fire... More

Stopped for a bit of dinner on the way back from Salisbury, with my partner. We both had the Steak and Ale pie with pudding to follow. It was absolutely delicious, and I would absolutely recommend the cheesecake to everybody who has room left for dessert! The staff were lovely and attentive, and the warm fire was superb!
