Booked for Sunday lunch . Ordered the trio of roast meats. Gammon really salty , beef too rare , chicken dry . Overall the whole meal just tasted of salt , including the veg and gravy. I actually felt ill with dehydration in the night and drank three large glasses of water during the night . Couldnât sleep for thirst , not a great feeling. I did comment to the waitress and received an apology and a bit of discount off a glass of wine. I know food needs seasoning but this was over seasoned. You canât remove salt from cooked food , much better to add it at the table , after all too much salt can adversely affect some health conditions or children / babies . I hope it was a one off but I felt I had to state my case.

Clean & friendly bar and eatery. Serving breakfast, lunchtime and evening menu plus Sunday lunch served to your table. Steak night each Friday & regular weekend entertainment. Tuesday open-mic night, Wednesday home-made pie night and Thursday quiz night!
After visiting family in Clay Cross and reading the good reviews we decided to try this place. As we were not sure what time we could go we did not book. To be fair they found us a table within the bar area as they were fully booked even at around 5pm when we arrived. Our order was taken quite quickly but after 20 mins we were asked to move as we had been given a reserved table. There was also three guys in the bar area using constant bad language and shouting even though there was children but none of the staff asked them to stop.The food arrived after 30 mins and for the price we paid was excellent and great value. Once we had finished, our plates were not taken away and we had to ask to pay the bill and the lady never bothered to come back with a card machine.in the end we had to go to the bar to pay. Overall great food but let down by the staff on this occasion.Weâre sorry to hear the couple of issues you had on your visit. We do ask the bar staff to advise customers about language and so we will make sure we remind them if this!

At Cookhouse + Pub we believe in serving hearty pub classics alongside bold new dishes in a warm & welcoming space. Whether youâre planning on treating the kids or eating out with friends, Cookhouse + Pub offers a friendly, contemporary dining experience
A friend recommended this place, I'd not been since it was a Brewers Fayre, so was interested to see how it had changed. It seemed larger than I remember, probably the open plan design, definately an improvement.The staff were very friendly and informed, the drinks order took a little too long to arrive but the food was delicious and we even had room for a dessert, which was nice. The complimentary water was a nice touch.I would definately return.

We ate here last night whilst visiting the area. The menu was imaginative & extensive & when I asked about Gluten Free I was delighted to find that most dishes were either naturally GF or could be tweaked to become so. I had the loin of pork with mustard mash & my partner had the sea bass, we were both very impressed with the high quality of the food & the service. Their ice cream & sorbets are all homemade & absolutely delicious too. Thoroughly recommend the White Horse!

A lovely, cosy Sunday afternoon spent here. Friendly welcoming staff... clean... It's a proper pub... remember them??Food was hot, cooked well, plenty of it... very reasonable price... most enjoyable...Good selection of puddings..Will definitely be going back.

The Old Yew Tree Inn is a cosy village pub serving real ales and home cooked pub favourites run by landlord and lady Chris and sue
Went for a 'Christmas Fayre' meal - absolutely fantastic in terms of both quality and price. Hosts Christ & Sue were really welcoming and friendly and we had a wonderful evening. Would thoroughly recommend - normally pub Christmas meals taste like they have been cooked and then microwaved as required. This one was so fresh and tasty it could almost have come from mum's kitchen! A couple sitting adjacent to us said they eat at the Yew Tree at least once, but probably twice, a week! This pub might not be on your doorstep but it really is worth the effort to go there.

My son and now daughter in law booked this for a wedding venue. I am not rating it as the whole wedding package thing as I wasnât part of all the prep. Firstly the outside, lovely looking building, spotlessly clean and a beautiful backdrop. You can see how much attention has been put in to the exterior. Wonderful gardens and plenty of seating outside. The lights at night were really nice. There was ample parking for all the guests on site. Next the interior. Again absolutely spotless. Looks and smells clean. Itâs beautiful with an old barn feel yet modern. This place starts to feel a bit special. I canât express enough how clean it is. From the bar and restaurant to the function room. Clean as a whistle. Time to go into our rooms check in was effortless and we wasnât disappointed with our room as again spotlessly clean. What a lovely room. Bed really comfy too. Some tea, coffee and hot chocolate making facilities too. Air con worked a treat as me n the Mrs are a bit on the warm side most of the time. The wedding part that we was involved with seemed to go fine. I do want to mention the buffet they did. It wasnât your traditional buffet, this was something special. The chicken chasseur, if thatâs how ya spell it, was really yum. I mean I could have taken a bowl of that stuff up to my room and I would have been a happy boy. Everything was perfect. Breakfast time. Loads on offer. My better half had eggs benedict and these are her words âthese are the best eggs benedict I have ever hadâ and believe me we have eaten in many places with this on the menu. I had the full english, you just have to donât ya, and it was everything a full English should be but a bit smaller than I would normally have but thatâs the same wherever you go. Check out was effortless. All the staff we encountered during the evening and in the day were all courteous, respectful and seemed happy. The service we had was seamless. I want to say to whoever is in charge of the cleaning please pass on our thanks to your team, we were in room 110, because the thing that stood out for me was the cleanliness of this lovely building inside and out. Also a big thank you to the catering side/kitchen staff because the food we ate was amazing. Thank you to the entire team for making my sonâs wedding a perfect day from what I saw. Thank you for your recent review of The White Hart!Wow! What a fantastic review and lovely feedback. I will be sure to pass on your comments onto our teams and especially the housekeeping team as I know they will really appreciate what you have said.I will also let the team know about your comments about the wedding buffet and day itself, as a lot of hard work goes into every one we have.We can't wait to welcome you back and it is so great to hear about your son's perfect day! thank you once again for such lovely ocmments

Busy tonight so glad we booked, but it still had a lovely, relaxing atmosphere with a few tables to spare.Sue on the bar is always warm and friendly and the two young lads âwaiting onâ were excellent; smart, polite and very efficient.Food tonight was once again delicious and plentiful. We managed 3 courses each.

So much so,we ate here the next evening enjoying a sizzler dish,very,very tasty.Our host,âRamboâ is couldnât do enough for us ,even giving us a lift back to the site on the first night and even ferried us both ways the next day ! Thank you very much for an enjoyable experience....Five stars easy .

Beautiful 15th Century Chantry Inn serving fresh home cooked food and cask ales. Function room available. Carvery Sunday 12-3pm.
I have already rated excellent and still do. However, having dined here five times in the last couple of months, I can now comment on some of the dishes.The sizzlers, lasagne, gammon, ham and eggs, salmon and poached fish are all superb.On a personal note-Great battered cod but still had skin on.The steak pie was a casserole with a lid of fragile pastry that shattered when you tried to put your fork in it. Otherwise very tasty.The Gumbo pepperpot to me was an expensive bowl of leftovers from other items on the menu.A bigger specials board would be good as then you don't always know what you're having before you get there.On a very personal note-they don't stock newcastle brown.Hi there, Thanks so much for your review, we're glad you enjoyed us enough to pop back so many times! We hope we can continue to allow you to try more of our dishes and find some more that do suit! It is often very interesting to hear different opinions on our dishes. Next week we will be changing our menu for our more autumnal selection, so we hope you will come again to try this menu too. Just for any future reference: We are always more than happy to take the skin off your fish and chips, please mention it next time. We take your note about the pies and are actually changing to a new recipe for the pie, it will be an all encompassed pie next time! And we just so happen to be taking the Gumbo off! - So I hope we have solved all the dishes that don't quite suit. We look forward to seeing you again in the future, Many Thanks! Olivia.
