Very disappointing.Service extremely slow. Had to chase up drinks order. Wine bought to table but had to go and request glasses. Food served to table then had to wait for cutlery. Four sirloin steaks were almost inedible. Hard to understand the positive reviews, it is obvious this restaurant is being run by too few inexperienced staff.

Walked to this pub from the holiday inn where I was staying on business. On arrival it was a little hectic and the service was a little all over the place. I could say they were busy but it wasn't at capacity so more like a little understaffed. We were warned of a half hour wait for food but it... More

my colleague booked online and everything went swimmingly. We arrived and had to wait for a third friend to arrive but this was no problems to the attentive and friendly staff. The restaurant was busy but we never felt either hurried or left alone too long. The food was excellent, two of us opted for the roasts the other a... More

The food was fantastic, we had the 'braised short ribs'. They were fantastic and the service was first class too.

Menu was a bit more restricted them normal, but was more seasonal for Christmas, first non carvery roast I have had in a pub for a very long... More

Had a fantastic meal at the beagle. Only issue we had was that specials menu did not mentioned everything in the dish so we had a delay as a turkey dish contained pork. However the staff were brilliant and sorted the problem out quickly. Would recommend anyone with special requirements or allergies to ask about what is included on the... More

Have not visited the Beagle for sometime, surprised that with competition for our custom the food on offer is still poor. Ordered the so called Hunter Chicken which suffered from, (I would guess) to long in the micro or under a heat lamp, service was good. Mitchells & Butlers must be happy with Vintage Inn place in the market but... More

Hi James H, we appreciate you taking the time to respond. The staff at The Beagle take our reviews very seriously. I was disappointed to read that you did not enjoy your Hunter's Chicken. All our chicken dishes are cooked fresh to order and never microwaved and I am sorry that this dish was not of the quality you would... More
