    First visit since it has been taken over. Food very disappointing and expensive. My Asparagus & Crispy egg starter had three 1 inch pieces of Asparagus stalk! when i questioned this the answer was thats how we are told to do it!! the egg was hard boiled. No specials and no green veg. The Sole was substituted by Salmon which was very small - no veg. The roast potatoes with the Lamb Rump were obviously frozen and had appearance of being fried. Meals were nothing like the pictures on the website. Overall a disappointing & expensive meal. We will not return or recommend.

    Recently refurbished so thought we should try it out. Menu was varied and interesting so the 4 of us had a different selection. All of us were happy with our choices and left empty plates - what more can we say. We will be back.

    Starter arrived without any sauce which was stated on the menu - on querying was offered an alternative but not as good as had on previous occasion.

    The pub was let down by the service, they weren’t attentive. The food was slow to come out, and we actually got our food after a couple that ordered after us. We had to go and ask for the bill because we didn’t really get anyone asking if we needed anything/additional drinks/the bill. There was plenty of staff around but no one made eye contact with you at all. The food was nice and at a good price.

    Sunday lunch, both meat & vegan was excellent. Service good while all tge staff were under a lot of pressure as restaurant and garden were all full but as more people arrived after 2pm they gave realistic time frames for ordering & arrival of food. Five stars well worth a visit

    I took my friend here for a birthday treat, it was newly opened and we thought we would give it a go. It's a lovely little pub, good atmosphere, and super nice staff but the food was unfortunately below average for me. I ordered the warm aubergine salad, but what I got was an undressed pile of rocket with way too many of crispy onions bits, a few dried apricots (whole), some seeds, and a couple of sundried tomatoes. The main element of the dish was non-existent. It all felt thrown together from packets without much thought for taste or substance. And that cost £14.50. I'm sorry to moan but there is a lot of improvement needed with this dish. My friend ordered the fish finger baguette which she enjoyed so maybe I just choose the wrong dish but don't put it on the menu if you can't then produce and tasty plate for someone to enjoy.

    I had a lovely glass of Pinot Grigio, a delicious king prawn linguini, and a fabulous dessert, a morello cherry sundae. My companions enjoyed their meals too. The service was very good, very pleasant friendly waiting staff,although there was a little confusion over the desserts. We went at Tuesday lunchtime so it was nice and quiet. We would certainly recommend the Butt.

    Poor service! Waited at least 45 minutes for our starters. Food was below average and could only pick at my main dish. Won’t be returning.

    We went for Saturday lunch. The place was comfortable and only 1/3rd full. The staff were attentive and polite however, the food too almost 1 hour to be delivered. The cost of the meals in todays market is reasonable and the food was good. The drinks were expensive

    This is our local pub that has recently opened after refurbishment. To be fair the food (apart from two starters) was good but the service was diabolical, we sat down at 7 and got our main course at 9!! Apart from us there were only two other tables of two, not at all busy. No Manager on duty and when we complained they brought the zvhef to talk to us as the most senior person there. We felt sorry for him he was very upset. Punch Taverns who owns this pub need to sort things out

    The service was appalling. The staff consisted of a group of young people who had no direction or knowledge of how to look after customers. Our main courses were great but then we were just left sitting at the table with no staff coming near us. We would have had another round of drinks, desserts followed by coffee but the service was so bad that we settled the bill and went elsewhere. There was absolutely no leadership or idea how to treat customers, the owners/managers need to take a long look at themselves as how they run a business.

    I live locally so had suggested to friends that we meet up in the recently renovated Butt Inn. The restaurant and bar’s aesthetic is greatly improved and so we had high hopes. We were seated quickly in our booked table which was very comfortable. Our food and drink order was taken within in a reasonable time but it was then where we were a little let down. The food took over 50 minutes to come which was unexpected as there were only a few other tables dining. The food was delicious - although very large portions. We had mains and puddings which were very enjoyable.

    Overall this was a really excellent experience and we'll definitely return. Smoked salmon starter was a little bit plain, but food otherwise was terrific. Main courses came out a bit quick, and portions on starters and mains were generous, so we were overful - a shame as the desserts sounded great!

    Went to the Butt Inn for a Friday night treat for a friend and we were certainly not disappointed really nice food and looks really nice in the newly renovated pub/restaurant. We sat in the garden because of heat but would certainly go again soon

    We booked the Butt Inn for lunch, the service was excellent. We had a shared starter and I chose the Sole for lunch. My wife chose the garden salad, unfortunately we didn’t notice if it had aubergine in it, the was a separate salad that did state aubergine, as she has an intolerance to it. This was no trouble for the staff/chef who prepared another salad. I must say again what great service and the food was excellent, we will be returning!

    A great pub, much improved by the new owners giving it a fresh new look. I liked the designated eating areas. We were happy with our choice of meal. I had chicken schnitzel which was delicious and my mum had fish and chips which she enjoyed. We'll definitely come again. Service was also good, no complaints. The only negative was that the menu text was quite small and faint so hard to read. Others might find it ok though.
