Ignored to start, bar area busy so people eating had to wait - what is it a pub or a restaurant?! Food ok, not great this time. Had to clear own table to sit despite not being very busy

The Old Rectory used to be good value for money, however I haven't been for quite some time. We went for a family lunch on a Thursday.

Attended with a party of 6 and baby, friendly staff, everything delivered to the table in a timely manner. All food very nice the steaks were cooked to absolute perfection. Lovely family orientated atmosphere and the meal certainly didn't break the bank either! What more could you ask for?

Food came at least in ten minute intervals (ordered meals at the same time) chips were soggy and warm sauces arrived after the meal instead of with the meal. Desserts took... More
