We called in on the off-chance, as we were passing, the car park was practically full but we were pleasantly surprised that they could accommodate us. The lady that greeted us offered us a seat and said that a table would be available shortly and it was only a matter of four or five minutes before we were shown to... More

We decided to try the owls as we've moved within walking distance and the owls always seems busy. We ordered our food and drinks and were shown to our table upstairs. Our starters were disappointing, very bland absolutely no flavour at all! Once we'd finished our starters and drinks we tried to order more drinks and were told we had... More

We booked the Owls for a 90th birthday meal for 36. On arrival I asked to see the place setting but was fobbed off but eventually I was shown to an upstairs room with barely room and all separate tables laid out so most people had their backs to other members. The ends of tables were set but were unable... More

My mother rang The Owls to book a table for herself, her husband and two sisters. When they arrived at the restaurant, they were told their table was upstairs. My mother pointed out that there was absolutely no way her husband could manage the stairs - being hardly able to walk. She was told that she should have mentioned that... More

Went to the Owls for lunch with a group of friends, there were 14 of us all together. We were all able to sit together which was good. The restaurant was very busy but we were served quickly. When we arrived, we were given the menu to look at but didn't have to order until we actually sat at our... More

Thought it would be a nice family lunch but service turned out to be terrible, we were rushed as preparing for evening service, some few hours later. We booked downstairs as we had disabled people in the party but they did not know this when we arrived so had to wait. On leaving, we unintentionally blocked a car whilst loading... More

Booked a birthday meal at the beginning of April for the 30/4/17 for 7 people and we were situated upstairs in the corner; only to find a small rectangular table (approx. 3.5 ft long) with a tiny circular table alongside (approx. 2 ft diameter). 3 people were seated at the circular table with no space whatsoever. Leg space was limited,... More
