What a fabulous land lady of the Tally Ho! - I think her name was.... Anna she greeted us at the door and nothing was too much trouble! I watched her help two eldery ladies into their cars after a meal! i've never seen such customer service! Our meal was wonderful traditonal good pub grub! Would recommend a visit! I certainly will visit again - my children loved her!

Great pub!
I am a regular at this pub it has a wonderful oldy worldie feel about it. I often go down with friends for a meal and a bottle of wine, we have big familly do's down there too. They often have entertainment and quizs on.Or on a sunny day its great in the garden with the children. The food is lovely fresh and reasonable and the staff are friendly and amiable to your needs. A great relaxing place to go!

The Worst Place i have ever been to!
Well to begin with everything was going fine, nice pub and a general nice atmosphere. Then out of no where all you could here was loads of swearing coming from the kitchen, which was disgracefull considering our 4year old grandson was with us. Then it came to the food. One meal came out stone cold, the meat was really really tough and one meal was the wrong order. We were confronted by the owner who very insultingly told us we were being fusy, and reffused a reffund. She gave us the choice of either new meals which meant waiting another half an hour, or paying and leaving. If the people in the kitchen spent more time cooking then swearing, then maybe the food would be fine. Overall i was disgusted with the managment and i would have rather gone to macdonalds for my tea.

Friendly and Traditional
Unlike larger unfriendly public houses I found the Tally Ho to be a welcoming alternative. The staff are very friendly and the choice and quality of the food is well above many other establishments. If you enjoy a venue slightly off the beaten track with history and quality then this is for you. I will be coming back again and again - fantastic.

Lovely Meal and Great Team
I have often eaten at the Tally Ho and have found the food very good quality and the staff and team most accomodating and friendly. It has a lovely well kept beer garden perfect for families and a lovely atmosphere inside for those that would prefer a quiet drink. All in all a traditional pub worth a visit on a nice summers day.

We were very disappointed at the attitude of the managaement after we had given genuine feedback to the waitress about the lamb being tough. We were confronted by the owner who said that she had tasted the lamb we had returned and it melted in her mouth, she even brought it back to our table and proceeded to eat it in front of us. She did however struggle to cut it up in front of us. The whole thing was a little embarassing to say the least and backfired on the owner big time. My sons birthday ruined by an arrogant owner. Generally the service was very good and we rewarded the apologetic waitress accordingly.

I went to the Tally Ho earlier on today and they gave our chips to someone else, also our table wasnt reserved after we booked it on Wednesday. I usually have excellent service from them but today wasnt so good. I advise not to go on Fridays.

Bad hygene standards and no complaints procedure
Ordered a mediaum steak with chips and salad there was grit in the chips , i dismissed this and pushed them aside ... tucked into my salad and had bitten into a huge chunk of charcole grit , i can only assume this came from a dirty hotplate. i was in severe pain as i had a fowl taste in my mouth which wouldnt wash (oily charcole grit) also the grit had broken off what looked like a gient lump of cole in my salad this caused friction against my teath and cracked a filling , this later caused my tooth to crack in half. i complained to the staff who advised they would speek to the chef. they then hid in the kitchen for 10 minuites until i had left (i was with a group of work friends celebrating a special occasion) - this had ruined the celebration . they didnt have the decency for the chef to apologise inn person or offer a refund .I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN AS THEY DO NOT DESERVE MY CUSTOM AFTER THE WAY I WAS TREATED . I am currently compiling a report from my dentist so that I an persue a recovery of medical costs incurred from them as a result of eating there.the atmosphere was splendid and it was traditional but BEWARE OF THE FOOD.
