Felt comfortable & safe due to well implemented Covid safeguards.

The waitress was efficient but not over friendly.

The food unfortunately failed to impress & for what we received I would say it is over priced.

Nice place but food not the best. Fish cakes as a main were made from a lot of potato and not a lot of fish. Very dry as lacking in any sauce. Disappointed and seemed very overpriced for the quality.

Excellent meal, pleasant evening, good service. Had to stand outside waiting to sign the Covid register longer than we expected but otherwise all was good. Pity we’re now into lockdown again!

A family Sunday roast at the Chaser to celebrate my son’s 27th birthday. We were seated in the restaurant right next to an open fire on a dreary day. Wonderful. We had beef, chicken and multi meat roast lunch with a selection of winter vegetables. Lively chatter and banter accompanied by spirits and a glass of Merlot. Friendly and attentive staff made a very enjoyable afternoon.

All service and staff were so lovely until towards the end when it was obvious this member of staff wanted us to leave. We had finished dessert and hadn't seen eachother in months and a new waitress that hadn't served us yet came over,leant right over me and my friend to grab menus,napkins and glasses in a rushed frantic manner and said "anything else ladies?" But I feel it was not a sincere question as my other friend wanted another drink but it was obvious that would not be an option with this staff member and we were made to feel very uncomfortable. Otherwise, previous staff members lovely and attentive, not rude at all. Food was great.

Been a regular here for many years. Was always consistently good. So disappointed. The food wasn’t good. The main or dessert. Very expensive too. Prices have gone up. Won’t be back anytime soon. Such a shame.

Can be quite pricey, but a lovely place to go for a family lunch. Fantastic atmosphere and you’re always guaranteed a very warm welcome! Since we found it, we keep going back because we just love it there, plus the surroundings are gorgeous so it’s a lovely drive out, too.

This was the second time we visited recently. The staff were first rate and great care was taken to make us feel safe. However the room where we were seated was very noisy indeed (I had requested another room) and conversation was difficult. The food took ages to arrive although it was good, but did not merit its high price. The menu is limited but with some good options including vegan. The wine list is grossly overpriced and the one example of red bordeaux was very poor and cost almost £30, I expect one could buy that low quality of wine for around £5 in a supermarket, personally I would be ashamed to offer something as poor as that.

I would visit again but not on a Saturday night which was simply too busy.

The reason I marked certain areas down was because my partner's meal which was supposed to be Sausage Chips and Peas (no gravy) was delivered as Sausage and Mash with gravy, plus peas. We had asked to make sure that what was served was in line with my partners food intolerances. Gravy is generally a problem! Unfortunately by the time we received our food there was not really time to re-order my partners meal, so she went ahead and ate it. The result two hours later was not good.
I would recommend The Chaser to others, this was just an unfortunate instance, but orders taken should be followed if possible.

Good menu range. The Fish was excellent and the desserts are delicious. COVID-19 arrangements are well planned and effective. Our meal was let down by the salad which looked quite tired and brown edged. Staff were happy to replace but that too wasn’t very appetising. Otherwise the overall meal was good enough for lunch.
