    Ive been going to the Dick Whittington for yrs. They have changed their menu a few times and its not as good as it use to be. The food is good, but not much variety anymore. The dessert menu isnt great, brownie was dry as, churros ok but only 2, and their banana/mousse horrible. Food use to be worth the price, not anymore. Which is such a shame. Hope they bring back a menu with more variety like they had yrs ago.

    To drink beer/ wine from a cheap plastic cup is disappointing and rationale as a safety issue as an excuse is lazy and cheap.Been DW garden before and always had glassware in garden area and not an issue. Food served on crockery and utensils used- so safety issue doesn’t hold. Been to 2 beer gardens since opening up- glassware service. Obviously, new publican doesn’t understand and respect his clientele, sustainability of product and poor economy re cheap plastic alternative. Understand, hard to open up- several beers not available and only one on offer- bought bottle so ok. So Dick Whit- after 35 years attending- at this stage no more. Luckily area has a lot of choices in walking distance.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave a review! We really appreciate the feedback on the outdoor beer garden. With our new pop up bar we had been limited in what we could offer in terms of our back of house set up however we are hoping to be able to offer glassware soon. Hopefully you will come back and enjoy the garden again and continue the 35 years of attending!

    My Parma was cold and we were told to leave the area a couple of times after our 2 hour booking except there was no one in sight to take our table. Literally no one on other tables too. Was a bad judgement by staff. Also, they kept telling us we had to leave 20 minutes before our booking was up. Felt really rushed.
