4 of us visited recently and unfortunately this will be our last visit. We have been several times over the past few years but each time the experience has lacked in some way. This time there were too many disappointments to justify another visit. We arrived 5 minutes early and were tended to promptly being shown to our table by... More

We were stuck for a place to go for something to eat on Friday night. Decided to not stray to far and try The General Burgoyne. The waiter was quite young and tried hard to do a lot of things and seemed to be the only one serving. We knew there were empty tables but he looked shocked that we... More

Overall a Christmas meal I won't be repeating, this place never pushed the boat out at all, no xmas decs, no table cloth, not a great choice of meals, quality wise starters and sweet were ok but found my beef fatty and the stuffing balls to big which made them to doughy.

Hi Johnnydontdoit, Thank you for your review of The General Burgoyne. We are glad that you enjoyed your starters and sweets. With regards to the beef, over Christmas we were using rib of beef which does have more fat on it typically than a topside of beef for example, this gives more flavour. I can only apologise if you did... More

This is a lovely local pub, very cosy and welcoming. Great stop for a delicious Sunday Roast in the conservatory, or just a drink by the fire in the bar.

We visited for lunch over the Christmas period. The menu offers good variety and our order was taken promptly. Our lunch was delicious with very generous portions, and very well presented. Lovely flavoursome food at a reasonable price. The waitress service was exceptionally good. We will definitely be back.
