We have recently had a couple of good meals at The Tyrrell at very reasonable prices. (the butter does not arrive wrapped in those ghastly portions) James - who we believe has been there for a few months now, together with his team really make you welcomed.There is a good atmosphere in the pub and we will be returning soon.

We came as a family of 5. Welcomed in by friendly staff who we got on really well with. Lovely home cooked food. I had a chicken and ham pie. Can't understand the bad reviews. You are at a lovely pub with amazing scenery paying £11 for a massive portion. People need to remember the sir Walter Tyrrell is a... More

Thank you for your kind words, especially with regard to your comments on the friendly staff and good home cooked food. You are correct in what you say, we are a pub, a beautiful pub in a beautiful part of the country, and we don't ever want it to be anything other than that. As a new, small family run... More

Took the family here for lunch today. Pretty empty yet barmaid forgot 3 out of 5 drinks (which they kindly comped us). Also forgot to order two of the kids meals. Ploughmans was fine, very average. Kids burgers were poor - all cheap bought in ingredients. The real question is why you'd go here rather than many of the better... More

Thank you for your review but I'm afraid I strongly disagree with your comments regarding the "cheap bought in ingredients" I can assure you they aren't, and I find your 2 star review a little unfair. The burgers are fresh from a very local farm as our the vast majority of our ingredients wherever possible. I can't comment on the... More

We had booked a table for nine for New Year Eve afternoon. When we arrived we stood for quite some time waiting to ask for our table. We were shown to our table and given some menus. The place was really cold although it was early afternoon. We ordered drinks from the bar which included a coffee. We waited a... More

We booked a table at this restaurant as it was the perfect meeting location for a large family get together. When we arrived we stood at the bar for ages waiting to order a drink, 2 waitresses were walking backwards and forwards behind the bar but were not making any eye contact and with the growing number of people waiting...

I wish I could give zero stars. The pub itself was freezing cold - our family had to wear our coats. Then the food arrived. It was disgusting. The carrots were raw. The gravy was water. The 'roast' beef was covered with gristle and fat, and covered in green blotches so was left untouched (see images!). The Yorkshire puddings were... More
