Last Friday they were handing out slices of pizza so I tried one, very nice so visited the restaurant on Sunday. Was really impressed with the food. We had ribs to start (very nice!) following by pizza and pasta... More

Not quite sure what to say really. Initial impression - front door locked so go round the back. Ample parking, garage at the side, crammed with "junk". The venue itself i thought was grubby and a bit tatty. The drinks are an extravagant price (just shy on £10 for tea, adult lemonada anc 2 child size lemonades) . Not to... More

My husband and I celebrated our wedding here with family. Christine the hostess went out of her way to give us a wonderful experience. She was involved in the preparations and I just knew we didn't need to worry. The food was excellent, the staff were efficient and friendly and the ambience was fantastic. We would definitely recommend The Crofters... More

We can't thank the Management and Staff enough for the lengths they went to, to ensure my wife had a 50th Birthday to beat all others. A great venue, amazing food, a fantastic vibe, awesome entertainment provided by a talented bunch of guys "Radio Edit," and hard working & attentive staff. We knew it would be great but our friends... More

I don't have a great deal good to say, so I'll keep it short. You need to improve your customer service skills, reduce waiting time and listen to your customers. On appositive note when I have stuck around long enough for a meal it has been satisfactory. Would I recommend it. NOT AT THE MOMENT. Would I go again. NOT... More
