    I celebrated my birthday and also had my baby shower there. As we were 6-8 ppl we ordered pizzas, a selection of small meals and desserts. On birthday they were really kind, aloud us to have our own cake and they provided everything such knife, plates and forks.
    We truly enjoyed our food, the service was amazing.
    I can highly recommend. "

    Although it says that you have to book in advance. I went to the Betsy smith last Friday. I was my first time there . the food was really amazing and Imaginative. I had the seafood soup and my partner had the lavender lamb. Very surprised since from the outside it just looks like a pub. The cocktail list did not let me down either. Thank you Betsy for producing more than just sausage and mash, pies and fish and chips. "

    Lovely place for a drink, nice décor, atmosphere and good staff, however the food needs some attention.

    The vast expanse of this menu means that I can only judge by what I had which was the king prawn, calamari/seafood, courgette + chips main. The (massive) plate arrived and it was just a sea of beige and batter no love there at all just everything thrown in a fryer which was a shame as the ingredients were clearly very good quality and a great combination. Calamari were very rubbery,the octopus was inedible and the courgettes were coated in so much batter that the veg element became irrelevant.

    Desserts were OK, nothing special though and very sweet. "

  • " Sadly the adventurous sounding menu does not live up to it's promise. My girlfriend and I had the scallops to start which were rubbery and undercooked, my main was pork on an enormous mound of lumpy mashed potato and peas,which tasted burnt, whilst the pork was dry. My girlfriend's pan fried red mullet consisted of boiled flavourless rice and limp pieces of tasteless fish dressed with an unappetising green tea sauce which did nothing to add any flavour. We went there with high hopes but unfortunately the menu is seriously over reaching in ambition and getting nowhere near in execution. The staff were polite and helpful and no problems using the card but as the good was so poor we definitely won't be going back. "

    We went to this place for a family dinner as it looked pretty awesome online and the reviews were great. The place itself has a great design inside and the cocktail list was pretty impressive. We have chosen a couple to try and were not disappointed. The starters were ok; we had the roasted pumpkin and cheese fondue which was not what was expected but tasted alright and scalloped potatoes which were presented rather nice. However, when the mains arrived, they was not what we expected at all! The Betsy's burger tasted very dry with no flavour and the only good thing about the whole dish were the chips. The waitress didn't ask how we would like the steak cooked and we had to inform her yet when it arrived, it was not medium but rather well done to medium (ish) and again very dry and flavourless, baring in mind this dish would usually cost 17 pounds! Finally the duck was as poor as everything else with warm(ish) mint mash on the side and again, very blunt flavour. When we asked to exchange the duck for something else as it could simply not be eaten the restaurant refused and said we had to pay for an extra dish if we ordered it. Overall, definitely wouldn't recommend for food but for drinks, go for it. "

    " A little hit and miss. For lunch, the pub is excellent as it is quiet. For dinner, the pub can be very busy and service is slow.
    Generally the food is great, the Betsy Burger is massive and very tasty. Sadly the last few times we have been, the beef in the burger has been a little suspect (tasted off).
    As a warning to others, the "re-invented Caprese salad" is not a traditional salad. It is tennis ball sized scoop of mozzarella on top of a "cold jelly of tomato purée", all surrounded by pesto.
    Note that the Pizzas on the back of the menu are not discounted, although they are very good!
    Finally just to mention that the decor is eclectic (bird cages as lamp shades) and on Thursdays they do 2-4-1 on cocktails (of which they have many unique varieties). "
