We visited The Chaser for a birthday celebration breakfast with our friends, so 4 different choices and mush satisfaction all round. The Chaser can be extremely busy at Lunchtime (so pre-booking would be essential!), but we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast in relative peace and quiet. The breakfast menu offers a good range of choices, so no problem selecting our individual... More

I love The Chaser, myself and my husband often go there for Sunday Roast and we are never disappointed. This year we decided to dine out with friends on Christmas Day and chose The Chaser for it's atmosphere and our previous experiences there. Because it was Christmas my expectations were high, and I have to say it was just brilliant... More

We have often driven by and been put off because it seemed so busy and it was difficult to park but decided to try lunch on a Monday and found it as welcoming as I remember it. We settled down on a comfortable table alongside a gorgeous roaring fire and ordered our lunch. We only wanted a light lunch so... More

After a walk across the country fields, arriving at the pub with boots caked in mud, it was great to be able to leave the boots and dirt outside and stroll in for a hearty breakfast!

Having been regular visitors to the Chaser over the years, it has been sad to see the slow decline in what was an excellent pub over the last 18 months. Unfortunately we will not be venturing back again. Whilst there is a large and varied menu, it is bitterly disappointing to be informed that they do not have half the... More

I wrote a review for The Chaser on the Opentable website (which we used to book a table) and was annoyed that my poor review was swallowed up on the site because the default setting for reviews is for 'Highest Review' and not 'Newest'. So I am repeating it here: I had not been to The Chaser for some years... More

TheChaserInn, General Manager at The Chaser Inn, responded to this review

Hi Mr Location I am sorry to hear you was disappointed in your meal with us. The chips are most certainly cooked fresh but sadly not to your liking. If you would perhaps like to discuss this further then please do feel free to email me on manager@thechaser.co.uk Kind Regards Jan Webb More
