Waited ages for our meal over half an hour, the restaurant was not fully booked. Very disappointing as our guests from London asked to eat at the Digby. This not the usual service we have come to expect from you as we regularly eat at the restaurant. We shall be trying other restaurants from now on.

We had the steak and wine for £10.99 deal. The steak was cooked to perfection and the service was excellent. I have a 6 year old who loves the play area and enjoys the colouring and puzzle placemat they give you as you come in. Great value for money. Can't fault it. Will definitely be back again. Thank you captain Digby.

Another great evening meal here. I have nothing but praise for the food and the value for money. We indulged in a starter of Halloumi and went on to have the Steak deal. Worth every penny.

Lovely food and good service. My only complaint is the lack of supervision in the play area. Despite signs clearly indicating an area for babies and toddlers this particular area was overrun with children a great deal older it would have been helpful if staff could monitor the area and advise families to supervise their children accordingly

Everything about Captain Digby is excellent, quality and quantity of food, excellent staff always polite,cheerful and helpful. Have been to Digby many time, although I live 50 miles away, and have always been very satisfied with everything. The one place I recommend to all my friends and familyPlenty of parking space.

If you don't like a lot of noise then don't go at half-term. It's a lovely place for kids to go to and they enjoy playing in the indoor park. So get your kids there so they can join in the fun!

We hadn't eaten at The Captain Digby for a few years and we were really pleasantly surprised at how excellent the service and food was.
This was a meal to celebrate our 33rd Wedding Anniversary so we were hoping for a nice experience.
The bar staff were very friendly and our table was ready on time, the waiting staff were really on the ball and very attentive , nothing was too much trouble.
We have already booked again for a birthday celebration on 21st February .
Food was great, Service was great and ambience was great. Also very reaonably priced.
Thank You First Class.

Table booked for 5pm . Late being seated and was told roasts still available. By the time we got served, about 6, all roasts gone! Then told our order hadn't registered when placed so had an even longer wait. Having a one year old child with us didn't help the situation.
My daughter ordered fajitas and she received a "chicken curry" with wraps!
Won't be returning on a Sunday. Had dinner on a Saturday a couple of weeks ago and it was lovely.

Altogether a very nice experience. Nice surroundings and the noise levels were perfectly acceptable. The staff were extremely polite and helpful and we their timing was spot on. We would like to go back again, especially during the daytime because the outdoor space looks like it would have some great views whilst eating.
