    Brilliant! Super dog friendly, yet immaculate. Excitement value, yet divine food. Cosy, yet a tardis with a huge garden and events barn! My new favourite place, highly recommend.

    We were greeted at the door by friendly staff who escorted us to our seats and made sure we were comfortable. There was a fresh bottle of ice cold water and a small bunch of fresh flowers on the table. Drinks were served promptly whilst we studied the menu. Not a huge choice, but the food was excellent and very well presented. The overall ambience was warm and pleasant. We will definitely be going there again.

    The menu was a little limited and seemed expensive but we hoped the portions would be generous. Sadly this was not the case and the £28 sea bass was a tiny fillet . I have had lovely Sunday lunches before , but I will not be booking again for a weekend lunch with a friend

    So happy having the Pinkneys Arms on our doorstep. This time, we had prawns Masala as a starter and the men had fish and chips. First class and the masala sauce was just gorgeous. We love eating in the barn and the service staff are just excellent.

    Complete lack of service no one came over to the table had to order at the bar after 24 minutes of no ones coming over. Food took 35 mins and when it came out the potatoes were like cardboard and a soggy Yorkshire pudding. Terrible experience

    Went on Bank Holiday only two of the pizza selection were available and 4 of the dishes on the main menu were also unavailable. Service missed a dish of our order. Some of the food was cold. We ordered the children's menu and didn't receive an ice cream. Expensive food for what we got.

    We arrived at 5 pm on Sunday 28th for dinner. we were treated at quite a nice table on the veranda Handed menus. Ask for a bottle of sauvignon blanc. It was sold out. The only wine available was chardonnay Five minutes later, the waiter comes to take our food order. Everything is sold out except a lobster dish and the most expensive fish dish we left at that point asking why they had not called us in advance

    Overall, we had a great experience. The food was good, eclectic as was described on the website but well executed. Lovely to find somewhere that doesn't do the usual pub food rosta. The only thing that let it down was the service, while the staff are lovely and very friendly the organisation of the service was disorganised even at what seemed like a quiet period at 5pm on a Saturday. Our 3 year old's dinner came out with the starters and then the adults waited for their mains for quite a long time, to the point where we came to realise we may have been forgotten. Glad the 3yo was on one their more patient days... Once the staff were notified about the delay the mains came out and were delicious. We will be coming back but please work on the service.

    Very good meal but a couple of small problems. When we went to our table there was only one place setting instead of two. We ordered a pot of tea and the waitress had to go back and get a tea spoon. When the desert arrived again they had to return with a spoon. Although these are minor faults and will not stop us going again we feel that when paying a premium price then this should not happen.

    Lovely set up, flowers, candles, outdoor space was peaceful and very nice to sit there. Service and staff generally good, but after being offered a menu and ordering, we noticed different dishes coming out of the kitchen that we hadn’t seen on the menu. After asking we were told there was another menu. It’s a shame we weren’t offered both, as they looked yummy! but it’s a small piece of feedback from an otherwise lovely lunch.

    Really disappointing. We’ve been here many times and always been impressed with food and service. However, yesterday service was poor and food was bland. My husband’s food didn’t arrive until 20 minutes after the rest of ours and that was after asking twice, my son’s chips took even longer. Shame cos we’ve always enjoyed the restaurant but won’t go back again.

    Complete mess up with orders (down to training we were told) and despite them getting it wrong it arrived after many had ordered after us. The team did offer us a free round of drinks, we ordered two glasses of the wine we’d been drinking but instead were given the house wine which was not great
