Had a very nice meal with the family. Good value for money, the young waitresses were very polite and efficient. Captain Digby is to be highly recommended. Fully Covid compliant.

Staff good but a tendency to be inattentive. Food portions are generous. Could do with an indication of contents of dishes on the menu to address food intolerances.

Everything except food is perfect. Food could have more fresh fish items and prepared in more delicate way. In general it is like in any medium British pub, not excellent.

We were seated at our given time and after 73 minutes had only received our starter, I understand when places are busy but at least take the time to explain to customers that is the case.

Very friendly efficient staff, thrilled we bought 2 bottles of wine, Red & White. Wished us a happy anniversary (49th). Food was great and plenty of it. Loved there was a choice of mushrooms & vine tomato’s instead of salad. Lost count of number of prawns in half pint mug. Highly recommend this pub.

Very noisy table and slow service. Unable to eat some steak due to grisly in part. Waiter did handle the situation well though but overall not a great experience

Although advertised as a reduced menu, we had plenty of choice. Staff greeted us with a smile and couldn’t have been more helpful. All four meals were tasty and there were clean plates all round.
