We visited this pub yesterday Tuesday 5th January as a group of 11 people. We were celebrating an office Birthday so rang ahead to ensure they could fit us in. This was no problem, and the lady asked if we could pre order so make it easier for the chef which we did. What a waste of time that was.... More

UKtaser I would like to apologise for your recent experience at the Thomas Egerton. On the day in question we where very busy during the lunch time period. Your group was advised there would be a wait on the food due to the size of party. We usually ask for a pre order at least a few hours in advance... More

Have had lunch and early evening meals on a few occasions and was quite satisfied, nice environment, lovely staff and decent food. Based on this we decided to have the special Christmas menu one evening and we ordered our food in advance. The starters were OK but what a disaster our main courses were. Two of us had the turkey...

Great pub, good atmosphere, lovely staff. Really like the "fireside" table! The food is simple, honest but super tasty. I've taken family and friends there a couple of times in the last month and all have enjoyed it saying they would come back for more.

Warm and friendly atmosphere, good menu of home cooked food- no chain pub feel here. Highly recommended.

We booked for my brothers wedding anniversary we were really looking forward to it. We were disappointed. The meat was very tough vegetables not fresh. To top it off the waitress dropped a full drink down my back I was wet through to the skin. Won't be going again.

Called on the offchance and pleasantly surprised. Delicious home cooked tasting food- proper chips particularly good. The haddock n chips was enormous. The steak pie not so big or much meat in but what was there was enough for me and tender and tasty. Veg cooked nicely, not nearly raw like some places! Sticky toffee pud and an impressive cheeseboard... More

We have visited this place many times over the years and now it's under new management ( I think) it is pleasing to note it's just as good as always. Here's why. The place- situated near to countryside, parking good, pub itself is welcoming there are locals who go there but it feels really friendly when you go in there.... More
