Third visit in three years and I think food standards have slipped slightly. The upstairs room was as lovely as ever and the waiter was pleasant. However, the quality of the battered fish was poor and the curry was very bland. A side order of...More

Just eaten here for the first time and was really disappointed. The roast dinners were cold, and took ages to come back once we sent them back. Toilets were filthy and they gave the wrong change by £20! The customer service was a little slow,...More

Thank you for your feedback, If im honest the feedback isn't the best on this dish based on both the lamb and pork being fatty. As for the wings they are pre cooked and we oven them here. I've passed this info on to our...More

I've been driving by The Huntsman(Generous George) for months, and for some reason had low expectations. However I was pleasantly surprised. The decor was new, though a little mismatched. There was a twenty minute wait for food, which is acceptable as it's not a fast...More

Hubby and I popped in earlier and had a really nice mixed grill . The meat had clearly been cooked fresh as it was moist and tasty and pipping hot not left under a hot plate at all . Even the mushroom was incredibly tasty...More

Nice venue. Promising start. Dreary food. Luke warm burgers and limp chips. Chicken burger consisted of a couple of goujons in a bun. Not really a stunning effort. Half-hearted hospitality from waitresses, bar staff better, Wouldn't recommend eating and I'm puzzled by the 'Generous' part...More

The Nachos were excellent, and the pizza, Hunter's chicken and ribs. It was a shame that the chips were reheated which made them hard. No-one asked us how the meal was, or I would have mentioned it. Pie was quite good, meaty, but very hard...More
