Had a lovely meal before going on to the Abbey. Food was American bbq style but really tasty with good portions. Three generations of women from 19 to 76 years old and we all enjoyed it. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Our welcome at The Wiley Fox wasn't the greatest with before even being seated or asked for drinks that the table was needed back in 2 hours. Nacho starter was tasty and generous, however the beef brisket I had for main was a touch dry. Food was reasonably priced though. Not the greatest or the worst BBQ food I've had.

Good food and service. The wings were delicious. Very casual setting. We were sitting on couches and armchairs with a low table which wasn’t ideal for eating but other than that no complaints!

Cosy pub with a cool atmosphere and good food. My only issue was with the music, which was too loud to allow for conversation.

Lovely waitress serving us, who made our evening really nice. Lovely food - very good pub grub for a reasonable price. The loos were pretty unpleasant in terms of cleanliness and we did find the music too loud in the restaurant area. Overall good though!

Super service on a Saturday night. Eight of us met for food and drinks - food was gorgeous and the lady who served us was excellent, very attentive and friendly. Music a bit loud at times but we were seated right under a speaker, however the staff kindly turned it down a bit when we asked!
