    Very pleasant sitting in garden, friendly staff, prices had increased from previous visits but menu had gone from basic pub food to restaurant so acceptable. We enjoyed our lunch and will be back.

    Staff didn’t seem to understand their job, eating chips behind the bar, using phones in full view of guests, prices a little hi for the area, £24 for a steak in a pub in Higham, desserts and starters around £6.50 to £9, fish pappy and not white flakes, no tomato sauce, no prawns, no music therefore zero ambience, no since of a landlord or landlady on a Friday night, inexcusable after only being open for a few weeks and leaving youngster in charge the oldest being the supervisor who is about twenty. This is an excellent opportunity but currently do not appear to know how to run a pub

    Every time we have been here we have had excellent service and wonderful food. This time was no different. For some of our party it was their first visit and they will be returning too.

    Nice pub. Staff friendly. Food was average and quite expensive for the amount of food. Dessert wasn’t quite what it was supposed to be, Morrello cherry sunday with crunchie was mainly raspberries and a cooking cherries on top and definitely no crunchie but it was nice but again expensive at £7.50. Plenty of parking and a nice garden but probably won’t be returning.

    Staff were excellent however waited far too long for food that was luke warm when it arrived and had been over cooked - lamb shank didn’t fall of the bone and a good chunk tasted like crackling. Also meals were missing items from menu description so not really value for money - over priced. Would not eat here again

    Pub was actually closed for a wake and we were initially turned away! I had tried to phone the pub before booking but no reply! However a thoughtful waitress offered us a table in the public bar which we took although the ambience was not as expected. Staff need more training to deal with situations like this to ensure efficient systems are in place to avoid being unnecessarily rude to customers.

    My first visit since the latest refurb. Looks very nice, some tables I personally think are too close together tho so not much privacy for chatting with your diners. Service was very quick. Food was delicious and we sent our compliments to the chef .

    Service was a bit vague. As if staff were drifting with no one managing properly. Having said that they were friendly. Menu was a bit limited but portions were good and we enjoyed what we ordered for mains. The brownie was strange, as if it hadn’t seen an oven like raw dough but the flavour was good. We will probably go again because it’s local and we love the ambiance. We liked having a relaxed area to sit for a drink after the meal.

    Love the refurbishment inside and out it’s so much better than before lovely warm atmosphere when you walk in, its still work in progress as the play area is not open yet. Food was excellent but looking at the menu I think it’s a bit pricey for the area it’s more of a Bistro with no meal deals and a favourite not on the menu Jacket potato. The coffee was cold but we wasn’t charged for them. We will definitely go back but not as often due to the prices, it’s a shame as we are within walking distance.

    Food wasn’t very good, had to ask for the vegetables that were supposed to come with my meal, the staff then had to check the menu to see what it was meant to come with and when they were bought out the 3 pieces of asparagus were limp and over cooked and the pea portion was tiny. Not great value. The chicken burgers were also greasy and the buns were burnt so not a great experience since it reopened.

    Food was lovely portion sizes on the small side and price for a pub very expensive. Especially the wine glass of white wine £8.10.

    This is the second time we have been to the Three Crutches since it re-opened with Rob and Kathy running the place. Rob, Kathy and all the staff make you feel welcomed when you arrive and are all very attentive and committed to ensuring the food, service and experience is first class. The food is wonderful. Presented well, cooked properly and portion size is spot on. I would recommend the roast on Sundays, the potatoes are yummy. There is a welcoming and friendly atmosphere at the Three Crutches and even after finishing the meal, it is nice to enjoy a few drinks in the garden whilst the sun sets. We will be returning to the three crutches soon.

    kids meals reasonably priced and good quality food roast were tasty but expensive especially when you have to pay additionally for a yorkshire pudding which i though generally was standard with a roast. venue was clean and garden area looked nice with pot plants. shame the play area was closed as this was the main reason we booked to occupy the children and didnt realise at the time it was shut.
