Had a lovely Sunday roast dinner, the beef had a lovely rich taste and the roasters are fantastic, only grip more Garvey. The service was excellent couldn't fault it, and the pub itself was nice and clean. Be going again when driving out in the area.
A really good roast beef dinner and a couple of glasses of wine by the open fire.....a perfect Sunday! Service was friendly and helpful. We didn't have to wait too long for the meal to arrive and when it did, it was beautifully cooked and very enjoyable. The portions are not overly generous for those with a good appetite on them but it was well presented and very tasty! We have also thoroughly enjoyed the delicious burgers on a previous visit.....again, well cooked and mouthwatering! We will definitely be visiting again.
When I booked, a warned the restaurant I was a coeliac, on a wheat & gluten-free diet. Upon arrival. the waitress spent time with me going thru the menu choices I could have, and those not. There was a lovely open-fire, on a chilly day, which was most welcome. The service was fine, but not outstanding, which is the criteria required for my husband to give a tip. The food was freshly cooked, and served quickly - wholesome, but sparse of vegetables.
We enjoyed our lunch, at a convenient venue between us and our family, but I wouldn't go there for a special meal out.
Nice food, comfortable venue, friendly staff
Food good but service slow
Nice atmosphere and location but the service was slow and quality of one of the meals very poor with little recognition of this fact. They did replace the meal with an alternative but it did impact on the occasion.
The food was good but the service took an age and we only had one course and it was not busy. Ladies upstairs not easy access. Staff friendly table comfortable. Drinks quite expensive.
The Nightingale looks like a cosy pub when you enter, but there was no-one to welcome you (as normal) and we had to find someone to take us to our table.
The food was very poor quality especially the overcooked prawns and scallops which were served in boiling watery garlic butter ;the bread accompanying this dish was obviously left under hot lights and was toasted and dry (no butter provided). My husband's soup was fine but the bread was again toasted with no butter. The main dish looked okay but the chicken has been left under a heating device rendering the top half inedible because it was too tough. The vegetables were tepid. The gravy was lumpy. There was a skin on the mashed potatoes due to over-microwaving (I presume). We would have complained - however, only two members of staff serving on a Saturday night!! Eventually paid the bill at the bar after deciding not to order desserts. A very disappointing night out.
Food was absolutely lovely as were staff
