To be fair we went on Monday night on a bad weather day. Staff were very nice and it had the feel of a good pub bar so worth revisiting Thur-Sat. Minor gripe we sat outside and got bitten alive by mozzies ( my bad should have seen that coming) but inside the pub was just as bad - because the doors wide open and no aircon on!? I appreciate how it's a catch -22 : no business need to cut costs, but we'd have stayed for two poss three) more. Worth a visit will go back.

The food was below average all round & 3 meals all came out 8 to 10 mins apart.
There was something fantastic though- the young lady singing was outstanding!!!!

Mixed review on this one? We waited nearly 2 hours for our Burgers & kids meals. Not only that when the food finally arrived it was wrong & the kids still had not had their meals made. Was 9 pm before we had to let staff know we had to go without the kids meals. They then rushed the kids orders through as takewlaways & it was still wrong as we received 2 cheeseburgers & not nuggets.

The staff were great & very apologetic & the burgers we ate were quite good. But when taking family out especially kids you need faster food service or let people know the wait time prior completing their order. Been here a few times before, so hopefully it' was just an off night with the restaurant. Maybe more staff required on busy nights as a start.

Nice area, not too bad on our food, more on the well done side but was still really nice. A BIT pricey! And heavily watered down soft drinks, the water tastes more like coke than their "coke"... But all and all, a good environment

Tried the brand new menu tonight, food was amazing, hot, fresh and fast, good size meals, the chefs have put alot of time and effort into their new menu, all of the staff were friendly and chatty, great atmosphere. Stone & Wood On Tap! Even the Kids enjoyed their meals, highly recommend trying the Greek Gyros!

Our night started off lovely as we had never been to this hotel and we were seated in what was a really nice dining area. Fast foward approximately 15 minutes and 2 diners who were joining a table very close to us arrived with 2 quite large dogs that proceeded to move around and one was so close he had his butt in my chair and I could "smell" him (not pleasant). Hoping the dogs would 'settle" we then resumed our conversation only to be then interupted by Trivia.
I then enquired if there was somewhere else to sit so we could not hear the trivia and not be near the dogs and i commented to the waiter "there are 2 dogs" and he said we are dog friendly - to which i replied that i was not.
We were able to be moved inside which was perfect for us as we could continue conversing.
Then our food arrived, mains and entree together, mine was "cold" my husband's not much warmer - my mothers was ok. It was pretty ordinary all round - work needs to be done there.

So:
when i rang to book I was told via the phone message to do this online - which I did after signing up to a reservation site - no where in that process was "dogs" mentioned and if i was bringing one or if I had any issue being seated near one and secondly that trivia was on
I have since been on the website and I cannot see any mention of the fact that they are dog friendly.

I am not fussed on dogs and they scare me and I certainly do not like the presumption that I have no issue nor does anyone else in being seated with a large one being so very close to me - that should have been asked of me at the time of booking - it was not packed so we could have easily been seated where we ended up and avoided the experience leading up to this.

But the food being presented needs to be worked on as it's sub standard for the price you pay

My husband's comment: teach the bar staff to wash the wine measuring cup after each pour - do not cross contaminate the wine - better still get the wine glasses that have been marked with the small/large markers lines.

Definitely coming back for dinner, the lunch we had was awesome. Good beer selection and a nice one for a summer session. Dog friendly too!

Bar staff have no idea what they are doing, we ordered the mussels and they were so tiny half the shells were empty. The chips were disappointing. Such a shame as the hotel looks lovely. There's plenty of seating inside and outside, but the food experience needs improving and there's no coffee machine. Sorry guys this was our first visit and you need to try harder!

Dudley pub, what a place, what a vibe, never have I been somewhere where the staff are so welcoming and accommodating. The crew here have always taken the time to get to know the kids, making them feel welcome and special when we come here for a meal. The food has always been exactly what I hoped for, and the beers are always cold and always changing.
As far as a local goes, a man could not hope for more, as far as a destination Pub goes, a blow in would be lucky to land at the Royal crown.

Great little hidden gem of a pub here, service was great as well as the food but the value for money wasn't there.
The business needs to work on a child's playground now as the current is far from exciting.

Guys what happened! This place was awesome - for food and a great vibe.
Firstly the food was a let down. If you're vego/vegan don't bother, menu doesn't account for it, especially if you don't like mushroom. The kids fish was peppery. Granted they did bring out a new piece, however added 'next time just ask the chef not to include pepper', ON A KIDS FISH! Second what a quiet Friday night too, used to not be able to hear yourself.
Anywho, Good beers still, but seems the lights gone out.

Food was fantastic, great menu, the Japanese selections are on point. The service was brilliant, I was in the last night with other friends, we all had kids, it's super kids friendly. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and personable. I'd be there weekly if I lived closer but the in-laws are up the road so it's a certain visit for me when I'm on the area. Highly recommend it!

Great food that comes out quickly.
Kids can walk around, have a dance and no one seems to mind.

Friendly staff, nice atmosphere, good selection of beers on tap and a well presented pub. BUT...the food was very under whelming especially after all the social media hype. Literally the driest and blandest squid I have ever tasted. Only thing drier would be mouth full of dry sand. Will be back for a beer but not the food.

The food is amazing!!! Sashimi was absolutely fantastic, and friends enjoyed their schnitzels. However, the drinks had a strange taste, like the glasses weren't rinsed properly from soap. The staff were all fantastic and very accommodating to young children.
