  • CARL said: "Great food poor service.
    The food they had was very good was just a shame that half the food on the menu was not available. Then there was the dessert 75 percent of the options were not available. Service was very poor. Constantly forgetting to bring out everything ordered. Even with reminding it took 3 attempts to get it right. Then they apparently forgot to charge for the desserts and shouted at us to come back and then charged us full price. Finally it was a good job we weren't really hungry or wed have been eating again when we got home as the portion sizes were poor. For example I got 5 chips with my steak and my son got 8 beans with his sausage and mash. The only poor food was the lasagne which must have had a whole pepper in it as you could taste nothing else. Fix the issues and don't shout at the customers across the car park and would have been somewhere I'd go again. "

    Visited the Deers Leap on a Thursday evening for my sister in laws baby shower. We had a great night, food was excellent and of a much better quality than I was expecting. Service was fantastic and very friendly! Highly recommend, especially using the taste card which took 50% off the bill. Easy to use, no problem at all. "

    " Don't be deceived by the outside of this pub restaurant- the interior looks recently refurbished and we were glad we had chosen it. The extensive menu offered plenty of choice and catered for a range of preferences.
    The smothered chicken was excellent and the 'chunky chips' the chunkiest we'd ever seen! The deserts were delicious - nothing 'bought in' in these choices!
    The restaurant offered excellent value and we would not hesitate to visit again. "

    " This is a great restaurant, pub with a good atmosphere. We have been in a few times now and even had a surprise party/meal out and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Also a great place to take the family with a lovely play area, and child friendly.

    Go on give them a try!!! "
