We stayed at the campsite directly behind the hotel which has lovely toilets but basic showers. We ate evening meal which was well cooked and presented at a competitive price. We also ate buffet breakfast which was fantastic value for money. High quality produce which...was cooked to perfection with a fantastic range. Very covid safe too. We would definitely stay here again.More

Recycled vegetables do nothing for the reputation of this establishment. You couldn't cut through the roast potatoes and roast parsnip and even the Yorkshire puddings. I ran a carvery twice a week for 3 years. I know when I am eating fresh food. Shame on...you Raleigh CrossMore

Have just returned from eating dinner here and was bitterly disappointed.The menu was sticky and had dried food on it.Theprawn cocktail was literally just lettuce and prawns and a roll,no sauce at all on the prawns.My husband had the curry which had very little sauce...and was dried out.The scampi and chips was tasteless.No serviettes were given had to ask and the cutlery was brought out loose in the waitresses hand,no vovid precautions at all.We have eaten here many,many,many times in the past and the food has always been very good before.Most definitely standards have slipped drastically.More

I arrived for Sunday lunch. The first thing I saw was an ad on the bar for "staff wanted", A chef, bar staff and cleaning staff; not an encouraging start. There was just one person behind the bar who clearly didn't have a clue. A...second, somewhat gormless chap was loafing around doing nothing. Three queues for service led off in 3 different directions. Hoping that these might move along quickly I went to the toilet where a swarm of flies made it apparent how much in need of a cleaner they were, The queue had got longer on my return and since I had no desire to find out how desperate for a chef they were, I decided to go elsewhere.More

We were lucky enough to stay in the camping field behind raleghs cross last weekend. It was very relaxed, the toilets were clean and the sun was shining! We had a drink outside on the Friday and booked for a meal on the Saturday (it...was fully booked when we asked on Friday but we were kindly squeezed in at 5pm). The Mallets cider was delicious and the food was a huge portion, piping hot and delicious. They were extremely busy and the staff were understandably stressed but they did an amazing job and made us feel very welcome. Can't wait to come back soon! Thanks so much 😊More

We used to visit this place regularly, we returned last week for first time in over 2 years and we wont be returning again!! There was one person serving behind bar who was also taking food orders, the que was outside the door and into...the car park! several people gave up waiting and just left when we got our meal it wasn't worth the wait, staff made comments about how short staffed they were and owner was out!! no decaf coffee was available either Very disappointed as such a beautiful spot and used to be so goodMore

Absolutely rubbish. Every single staff member should be sacked, never seen a place manned by people who make it so clear they don’t want to be there. On entry we asked if there were any tables, the girl said no and there were loads. Then...tried to order the Weekdays Carvery which actually only means Wednesdays. Ordered burgers, absolute crap, everything undercooked, waitress walked off while we were asking for sauce. No polite service. And it’s NOT EVEN CHEAP. £5.50 a pint.More

Stayed for two nights. Lovely place. Our room was excellent. Four poster bed and very spacious with corner bath in the en suite. We didn't eat there in the evening but the breakfasts were very good

Today I visited with my best friend and my son. We won’t be returning, we order kids pizza which came out raw, garlic mushrooms which only tasted of herbs and the bread roll under cooked, order deep fried Brie at £7 only came with 3...of them had to ask for the sweet chilli dip and which hardly any then came, the bbq chicken wings didn’t taste of bbq sauce and was clearly pre heated as so dried out, and how can you get a salad wrong well the did, we were so hungry we said the can’t get desert wrong, what a mistake that was the chunky apple pie wasn’t cooked, the brownie was over baked and the whipped cream tasted off, the waitress was Misreable, no salt or pepper given, she left our full plates of food on the table when she come with deserts, didn’t even ask if we enjoyed our food , for the money as it’s not cheap there was awful we will not be recommending you sadly which is a shame,More

We had a pitch on the camping site behind the pub so decided it was necessary for us to try the food there! Firstly, the venue is very pretty! Amazing little features and nice outdoor seating too! So we were instantly very happy :) yes...the venue may be suffering a few staff shortages (it did not affect our experience) but what can you expect after a pandemic?!?!!! It’s definitely understandable that venues may struggle for staff or supplies in the given environment so you cannot penalise for that! We were recommended to try the burgers and my gosh we were glad we did! They were huge but still really fresh and flavoursome (not just size over substance). The dishes were also reasonably priced! I wish we had enough room for dessert because the pavlova we saw looked insane! The food was great and the camping was also spot on! Great job guysMore
