First time to The Turnpike, I'll definitely be going again! Turned up without booking, we were told it might be 40 mins before we will be served, our meal arrived in 20 mins! Excellent food and service.

Called in enroute from Portsmouth to Telford for a lunch for my dad’s 84th birthday- fabulous meal, great service, and really nice oldy worldy feel. Highly recommended.

We were staying at the Premier Inn, Oxford. Don’t stay there! Anyway, we ventured out for somewhere to eat and happened along this place. The food was excellent. Service was good. Look out for Elaina...don’t know if that’s how you spell her name but she was very attentive and friendly. Highly recommend. As for Premier Inns, stay at the one in Walsall. The one in Oxford is just not right. Can’t put my finger on it, it just isn’t right!

Good food, great service and an entertaining band playing. Even on a busy night the staff were prompt and attentive. The food was tasty, hot and well proportioned

I have been to this pub several times but this will be the last. Service is often variable but waiting almost an hour for starters and then a further 45 minutes for lunch was totally unacceptable. When arrive my meal was cold - sent it back only for it to be microwaved and made inedible. Staff tried their hardest but there was not enough of them to cope - ruined family lunch.
