No problems at all with the staff or the timings of drinks etc in fact thought we were in for a really nice celebratory evening. My husband ordered the sea bream which although well cooked and presented was over priced however he was happy. I ordered the Thai red curry which at best could be described as a tasteless watery...

This is a local pub with the attendant hustle and bustle. The restaurant to one side is quiet and clean. The staff are pleasant and sometimes attentive. There is an adequate menu that offers customers a simple range of options sensibly priced.

I have been here several times with visitors to our area and it never fails me. They have an early bird special and whatever you choose to eat it is always excellent and freshly cooked. The atmosphere is "warm country Inn" and very friendly and they have a jazz band and various musicians/singers a couple of times a week

Went for a meal with my Aunt and Uncle. A very good menu choice, excellent prompt service and good food. Excellent value for money if you eat before 7pm on the 2/3 course menu - plenty of choice and 2 courses for £10, 3 courses for £13 - can't go wrong :-) also a jazz band playing that night as...

Our landlady recommended the Amberwood inn so we decided to follow the advice. The pub was very busy with the festive season but we managed to find a table . I had lasagne & it was lovely I can't remember what my wife had sorry to say but what I can remember it was wonderful. The pub was very nice... More

Tonight our residents association held its Christmas get together at the Amberwood. Food was delicious, and while there was a delay between courses (as one might expect with 50 to be served at once) all the meals were hot and obviously had not sat for ages under a heat lamp!. Atmosphere was good and nothing too much trouble. Brilliant night.

An amazing pub restaurant very smartly presented and good service. The special board menu and set menu were so good it was hard to choose. Delicious food was a great treat. We must go back and it was very busy for a Monday! Great ales too!
