Good to not so good
Last week we visited the Rams Head and for quite some time we have been telling people how good it was previously, but unfortunately on the latest visit it had changed since the last visit, some of the food was ok whereas in the past it was fantastic. My wife ordered prawns and also was given a side dish of small prawns in shells and when she complained that they tasted awful and even thought they were off all the Manager could say was he eats them and they are fine? My Wife has worked as a cook for a very long time and never complains unless there is a need to do so.
We had booked for next week but just rang and canceled due to the lack of response from the Manager. Hope it improves again soon because it was brilliant previously

Absolutely fantastic restaurant food at a brilliant price! It was recommended by a friend and so glad we went! The waiter explained all the menu to us in depth and nothing was to much trouble! We have already booked again for this week :)

Simply Excellent
Looking for a place to hold a 40th & a 13th birthday celebration, we chose The Rams Head because our first visit looking around the place was very welcoming and the staff were very friendly. So we held our celebration on Sat 15th Feb 2014 and we definitely made the right choice. The staff had made a good job at decorating our table with a few decorations we had dropped off. Excellent service, great choice and great style of menu. Food was superb and plenty of it. The Combo is well recommended, we got it for 2 to share and it was huge!!!! An excellent night had by all. Would certainly go again without a doubt. Thanks to all the staff for making it a night to remember.

Very good
Coming from the Netherlands we were really suprised from the quality and quantity of the food from the Rams head. We ate in many English pubs but until now - this is the best one.

Ram's Head
Arrived at 9.20 and were made to feel welcom for 50 minutes - then the barman started stacking stools around us At 10.10 when we asked if we were ok for another round and he replied it would be ok if we didn't take long over them - We left shortly afterwards never to return!

Nice food, rushed service
Visited the rams around 7 times, The last 3 or 4 times have been rushed, pushy and at times very rude. Was asked once on booking over the phone for the following day if we could have an idea of what we wanted to eat as there is already another table booked in for the time. Once at 715pm staff where putting chairs on the tables and sweeping around us-very very rude and was told so. Another time was asked by the waitress to hurrry up and order as the chef will not cook more than one tables food at a time!!! (what kind of chef is this??) Its a real shame as the food is delicious but the chef pushes the waitress to hurry customers! I know a lot of people who will not return to rams head due to this reason! On our last visist table booked for 630pm arrived at 615pm and by 620pm was already being hounded to order and would we like our starters with our main so it would be quicker?? safe to say we didnt bother eating and left!

You need to book!
Wish the pub signs advised that booking is advisable. Tried to get a meal here 2 weeks ago, but we were turned away from a half empty eatery at 7pm in the evening. Reason given was that we hadn't booked AND the chef does not like to get too busy. We were also told that it is advisable to book for the Sunday Carvery.

Tucked away
Firstly forget what the place looks like or where it is situated. it is on the corner of a busy 3 way junction on the only road through Longton Village.
Car parking very limited, but some on road parking available down the road at the side of the Church.
small dining area, but nice to see they haven't gone for the pack them in spacing, nice and roomy.
I dont want to spoil the experience only to say, some old favourites done in a new way very well. Booking is essential as the eating is more restaurant type than pub. slightly more expensive than normal pub fayre but worth it for a touch of class. the food is very nice, not a huge menu but something for everyone.
If you want more than pub food..but dont want restaurant prices..this is the place. While i am sure the owners will shudder at this next comment..it isnt for children. find a relative, babysitter and enjoy the food.
If you feel any part of this review is unfair please contact me on draconisnobilis@hotmail.com

new updated photo
The new picture of this pub shows the the newly madeover premises, awash with flowers and hanging baskets; new furniture, terraces and outdoor garden area; even the car park has new tarmac. A credit to the new owners and Longton. Well done.

Catering for all ages,great food and real ales.
Since June 2009, the new landlord/chef Rob has been very much in charge. Superb atmosphere, wonderful flower display and terrace seating. Children are at home here. The food is excellent, and booking is essential. I recommend the rib eye with pepper sauce. Starters are not needed, the portions are huge.

the food is excellent and very very reasonably priced, just read a couple of comments about the price of the food being too expensive??!!!
i think my meal was less than 15 and that was one of the dearest things on the menu, it was fillet steak with all the trimmings and more !i have never had such a large portion of food at such a high standard!
i would of happily paid double for my meal as it was well worth every penny., and i have been known to be called tight and a little fuusy at times too :)
overall one of the best meals i have ever had and my husband and family and friends agree! deffinately worth a visit, i shall be going again tonight if i can get a table!!
