I had booked a table here for my mum's 75th birthday. As we entered the bar a local was being asked to leave as he was drunk and he was shouty. We were ignored for ten minutes before we asked if we could be seated, I had to order drinks from bar as no one came to our table. Menu... More

I always check the reviews of others when I have had a bad experience and in fairness the reviews are on the whole positive, but I don't think that any were for a Sunday. On arrival we were told only Sunday roasts were available either beef or Pork, fair enough quality over quantity I thought. Well what arrived is one... More

Good tasty food, good portion size and always hot. Friendly efficient staff. Pleasant environment. I don't eat meat but there was enough variety on the menu and a wonderful pudding menu.

We were staying nearby and decided to try this restaurant on the hoof. Wow we were not disappointed in the least. Service was excellent and our waitress and landlady gave us a potted history of the pub. The food was fantastic. Hot, well served and excellent value for money. I would recommend the specials board. Our wine was simply lovely... More

After staying at The Piddle Inn a few months ago and feeling so welcome and having such a pleasant stay, we decided to come back, so very pleased we did. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. Fantastic food and good value for money. Highly recommend.

A really interesting baguette with brie and cranberry. A poor and bland tuna sandwich. Wonderful, crispy chips. Very unadventurous and boring side salad. Abba very loud (you may or may not like this). Extremely quiet. Good and friendly service. So? A mixed review. At £22 including a glass of red wine and pint of excellent Piddle Ale, the value is...

When the pub is fairly empty during the summer holidays, it should have rang alarm bells. Food was poor and clearly not made fresh - I would think brought in ready made and desert not even defrosted. My first and last visit. There are much better pubs than this in the area. Do not understand the other reviews. Alot of... More

We ordered cod, chips and mushy peas. My husbands fish was lovely and fresh. However my fish was tough to eat and had obviously been cooked twice. It was inedible. I had to leave most of it. The mushy peas had a crust on top and the chips were just about hot. To be fair we didn't complain (my husband... More
