    Always great service. The staff are so friendly and attentive. My gluten free pizza was good but the base was quite tough and hard to cut through. Shame they don’t offer pizza cutters or sharper knives. Very busy in the restaurant and tables feel quite close together, but overall my friends and I had a lovely evening.

    Great food and friendly staff. We booked outside but they accommodated us inside as it was raining. It was a pity that we couldn’t eat outside, as the view is lovely. It was therefore very busy inside and the conversational noise was very high, but rather that than eat in the rain!!

    Horrible service it should I say kitchen rules!! Came with my nieces after their horse riding lessons, so they were really hungry and their uncle’s family were joining us but we’re running late. We thought we would order some drinks and appetizers while we waited. They refused to take our order till we were ready to order everything together. Tried explaining the situation to them but the server refused to listen. We were told the kitchen gets confused if we order separately. Specially on busy days they said. We were the second table outside. Go figure!! How hard is it to split the order by appetizers and mains!! The food was good and views were stunning but I’m not sure I’m going back again.

    We were there for a birthday lunch and sat in the garden. Location and setting is beautiful. Thankfully the rain held off, albeit a little chilly. But the staff were happy to provide blankets. Food was tasty, though I would say the lamb kofta was a little dry and could’ve done with a bit more kick. That said overall no complaints. Will definitely visit again.

    We always enjoy our meals at The Old Guinea but on this occasion, for the first time, service was disappointing. A lot of the staff that had been there in the summer had now left and with one notable exception, Toby (who is also soon to leave), service was slow and not at all attentive. On the plus side, the pizzas were excellent.

    The drinks took sufficiently long to arrive that we had already been eating a while. Having said that, the food was well presented and tasty. We asked for starters as mains for our kids and that wasn’t a problem.

    There is a lovely view from the terrace at the back but unfortunately there was a little too much cloud and wind to make the experience of sitting outside to be pleasurable. Staff showed us to an alternative table indoors close to a window that we were pleased with. Service was very quick though it did take us a while to attract attention when paying the bill

    We went on a cold evening and sat outside. Was not too bad and vaery quiet which suited our group. Inside was wxtreamly busy and noisy. Food was good but not enough vegeterian options. Service was very good. Overall we had a great evening.

    On our recent visit, the service was poor with me needing twice to walk around the restaurant trying to get the attention of a member of staff. Ordering one course only, it took over an hour for the food to arrive.

    Nice location and good selection on menu. Huge issue with online booking in that Open Table (online booking service) had been hacked and I got a call from a scammer asking for bank details which I refused. Apparently Open Table have been hacked a number of times in the last year. They have obviously done nothing about securing the platform. Will not book online in future.

    We dined outdoors on a lovely terrace overlooking rolling farmland. The view was spectacular and service was friendly and attentive - we were each given blankets to keep ourselves warm while we ate. The Old Guinea is a hidden gem that I will certainly be coming back to.
