We couldn't fault the service, everything we requested arrived without delay. I had 3 course and my wife to be had 2, we both had 2 drinks, the final result was... More

This is mine and my partner's favourite restaurant ever. We highly recommend the pie, but love it all. It's just down the end of our road which makes it ever better. The staff are so friendly, the food is delicious, the drinks are great and the decor is lovely. The sister restaurants of this are brilliant too, but this will... More

The food was good, the lighting was very dark and should be changed. The waitress also got our drink order wrong as we asked for a cider and she gave us an Ale. All in all was an average night but not worth the price.

Visited with my parents for Sunday lunch. Our waitress Poppy was fantastic. She was very polite and nothing was too much trouble. Our meals arrived quickly even though the place was packed out. It was fresh, piping hot and delicious. Portion sizes were very generous and there were plenty of choices of food on the menu. This was my first... More

On a busy Saturday night at the Wayfarer we enjoyed the 3 course Christmas menu. The portion sizes were very generous and we couldn't even eat the mint at the end of the evening. The turkey main course was excellent and on whole the choice for all courses was very good, in addition to this the service was professional and... More

We frequent the chain of restuarants on a monthly basis with friends. Unfortunately our visit this time didn't meet our expectations. The service just wasn't up to scratch. Waitress didn't have a clue how to serve prosecco and ended up flooding the table until one of our party offered to do it for her. We were waiting way too long... More

This restaurant is always packed with a huge car park that is often almost full, so why do I think it's not as brilliant as the attendance would suggest. The place is very nice and the ambience is lovely but that's were my love of the place ends, so why? Firstly, I think the menu is very limited (highlighted on... More
