Ate here a few times in November 2016 - good meals, cosy and friendly atmosphere, with a warm welcome to our 2 spaniels in the bar area. Went back midweek in February, sat down to read the menu and looked forward to the same. But now told that as it was 5.45pm and "company policy is no dogs after 6pm"... More

Went in for a lunch. I thought the safe option was steak. So I order a medium steak. It came after 30 minutes and very well done. This is the second time ( out of 2) when I get a not so good experience. There won't be a third.

Always get great food when I visit the Fox and Roman. On this occasion the service was a little slow and there was a bit too much cabbage on the plate and it enough of other veg and potatoes in my opinion. But it is still one of my favourite places to visit.

My partner and I dined here on a Saturday evening on a weekend away. The menu offered a variety of dishes which sounded lovely. Upon arriving at the restaurant, we had to stand and wait for 10 minutes along with others as there was no staff behind the bar. After being directed to the lounge for a table we quickly... More

Stayed over the road at the Holiday Inn and so it was a real bonus to have such a nice traditional pub on the doorstep. Great selection of drinks. Pleasant staff. Nice surroundings. Didn't have food but the restaurant was busy on both nights we were in and the food did smell good.

I visited twice in one week. The first time was for lunch which was extremely tasty and was thoroughly enjoyed. The second visit was for an evening meal, again this was cooked to perfection, no complaints whatsoever. On both occasions the staff were extremely efficient and very helpful even though they were busy.

Great food from Ian and service from Marie. Didn't feel overfaced and plenty of choice. Good value for money and easy parking. The telephone booking we made went a bit awry but luckily they had a table free as it was for my father in laws birthday and would have created us a huge problem. Great ambience but there were...

Came for Sunday dinner with my significant other and after a brief wait for service were catered for on a decent sized table; however the lighting was relatively dim and as it was light outside this struck me as a little bizarre. Upon ordering two roast beef we were served by a lovely mild mannered young man who lit up... More
