Used to eat here quite often and always enjoyed the food. Staff where friendly and always made sure everything was right for you. I am so disappointed this public house is now shut!

From the moment we walked in we felt uncomfortable as the female bartender was so rude we won't be visiting again

Had been looking forward to this for a while. Had heard good reviews so booked for large family gathering. I found this carvery disappointing, veg over cooked, meat tough and felt not much taste overall. One member of the party found plastic in the veg not the best. Needs improving

We had a hamburger meal and the beef burger was described as Aberdeen Angus but was wafer thin we also had to wait a long time for the food. On checking the bill we had been overcharged

Two recent visits to the Raven Inn - the first for an evening meal the second for a bar meal. We were made welcome and the quality of the food is much improved on both visits. Portion sizes were perfectly adequate and the Service was prompt and courteous. The outside area could do with a little attention but overall well... More

Visited with friends for a birthday celebration. The restaurant is clean and tidy, the menu choice is good and the staff friendly. Service was very prompt and all at a reasonable price.
