Excellent service, food was lovely. Group of 21 and everyone happy
Well I was quite disappointed with the service we received, we waited for over an hour for our burgers to come. I had ordered a 2nd drink, said to 2 different waiters and never got it yet they put it on the bill. The noise level was high as there were a lot of families with young children in. We were there from 6:30pm on a Saturday night. They didn't clear the empty drink bottles off our table and brought the food out and we didn't even have cutlery on the table yet. The food was decent but I wouldn't be rushing back.
Fabulous food. Patch of paradise. Will be back.
Very nice restaurant, staff was very welcoming and friendly. Food was very good. Would happily go back and recommend
My friends and I had a lovely meal followed by coffee and a great wee chat after such a long time in lockdown. Lot buzz about the place
Food was amazing we all had steaks tho the cocktails weren’t great but overall great night
A very enjoyable evening. First class food and service, will definitely be returning soon. Well done everyone at the Crafty Hound.
Was a nice experience, the staff were friendly and attentive. We will be back.
I was there for my birthday and I got the steak bit small for the money but was very tasty
Waited a hr in between courses
Muscles were dirty.... and cold
Brought wrong, Drinks and starter and asked for a garlic dip once mains came and didn't receive. £5.50 for a pint!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had the roast beef and veg was amazing!!!!!
My daughter had lasagne which was also very goods, but did not come with coleslaw like advertised. My other 2 daughters enjoyed the 8oz sirloin and the other had mash and gravy.
Food was outstanding 2 days in a row. Staff were brilliant
Very disappointed after waiting over an hour we had still not received our food so paid our wine bill and left the premises. There was no information from staff as to what the problem was and this was only revealed when we were leaving. Management who had been very talkative in the early part of the day/evening did everything to avoid us as we left. Not impressed at all.
I booked online which was easy to do. Had intended for drinks only but decided on food after arrival. food was amazingly good and was no dearer than anywhere else. Service was efficient and friendly. I will definitely return again.
The staff were very helpful and kind especially as it was quite busy. The food was lovely.
The Most amazing and high quality food in such a lovely setting! Very friendly staff! Would defnitally recommend
This was our first time in the Crafty Hound and I have to say that we had a lovely Christmas dinner. The service was good and the ambiance relaxing and the food of very good quality.we will certainly be back.

Food was beautiful, staff very attentive and pleasant
We had a lovely meal last Friday just what the doctor ordered.
Fun Friday family dinner at 6pm - lovely food, fantastic service - felt COVID safe and secure. Lovely set up for Christmas - thanks!
We had phoned to book a table and I said we were on our lunch and only had an hour and could we preorder, instead of doing everything together, I was asked to go to facebook and book a table them phone back to preorder
So I done that
We arrived at 12 and were seated and drinks is order taken, we had pre ordered and it took to 1240 until our food was served
The food was lukewarm, everyone's? We rushed to eat it to get back to work then we asked for the bill and was told to pay at the till, went to the till to pay and was told for a party of 8 there was no card machine as it was broken, and we were asked to pay in cash. We should have been told this on either the 1st phone call to book, the 2nd phone call to preorder, when we arrived, or when we asked for the bill
It meant someone had to leave work again in the afternoon to go back down with the cash
Service wasnt good, food was ok? Wont be rushing back
Beautiful food and great atmosphere, will definitely be back
As always we had a wonderful meal we enjoyed every bite and will be back ASAP
Lovely food but service could improve waiting ages before being asked for a drink then was while waiting on food. And everyone seemed to walk past us at our table got fed up waiting for service for dessert we left. Have to say food in here is nice but service is seriously slow.
Lovely food, great service. Really nice staff
Had lunch with a friend and our 3 kids. Ordered the Steak deal which was amazing and cooked to perfection. Kids loved their meals too.
Service was great, staff really friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back!
The starters were good, but the rest of the experience qasn't. Service wasn't great. The service wore a face mask with his nose sticking out. There really is no point in wearing the mask. Ordered a cocktail that was supposed to have mint and lime but what came out was just gin and soda. My bread was burnt for both the starter and the main. My main was the Penne dish which was bland and full of onions (which weren't mentioned in the description). I wouldn't return.
Very busy due to eat out to help out , staff very busy and service good. Food was lovely would go back.
We went to "eat out to help out" and both myself and dad had the blade of beef. It was absolutely delicious. I'll definitely be back and would recommend this place to everyone.
Service was excellent and food was top notch
Nice food, great service, lovely surroundings. Would recommend.
Disappointed with my meal at this venue. Having been seated at our table, the server took our orders & they arrived promptly. The mussels & wings were average in taste & quality. We hadn’t even finished our starters when a waiter plonked our mains down in front of us. The pasta dish & the chicken curry were both bland & I wouldn’t rate them at all. I ended up feeling a little queasy after this meal. Very disappointed.
Arrived at 6.55 for our 7.00 booking for 4. Stood in the hallway waiting behind other customers until 7.20 before we were shown to our table. Not a good start.
We were handed menus but our table wasn’t set and nobody brought us cutlery. Very quickly a young waiter came and took our drinks order, which also came out promptly.
Another 25 minutes passed and nobody took our food order even though there seemed to be a lot of waiting staff running around. I called one of them over and asked him to take our food order and he replied that we weren’t his table and he would send the waiter over.
Another 10 minutes passed before he returned to tell us that the waiter only had 3 more tables to take orders from before she would get to us. It’s almost 8.00 now.
We sat on chatting for a while before an older lady (I presume was the manager) happened to glance over to where we were sitting, my hand up trying to get someone’s attention.
I explained we had been here more than an hour and hadn’t even ordered food yet. She apologised profoundly for the wait, and tbh it was her sympathetic approach that prevented us from leaving at that point.
She took our order, brought us the cutlery and we waited. 10 minutes later the starters arrived. By this stage I was amazed that only one of them was wrong. But again she apologised and brought out the final correct starter.
Main course arrived within a reasonable time after we finished our starters but again, the food wasn’t correct. Medium steaks were well done and vice versa. By this stage, we just ate the food because starvation mode had set in.
Overall, the food itself was just ok. Not great. But the service was unacceptable. Doubt we’ll be back.
Went to this restaurant last Wednesday and booked well In advance as I new they would be best but when we came we got put into the pub bit and the had give our table to walk ins! Also food was poor got lasagna and it was like something you would cook in the microwave! Wouldn’t recommend
