The Beef was beautiful. Lovely and tender. The Pork tasted great, and the roasties….well…right up my street. Crispy on the outside, soft in the middle, and a sprinkle of Rosemary if I’m not mistaken. And as for the dessert…..wowww. The Apple and Cinnamon crumble was stunning. Reminded me of the ones my Nan used to make when I was a kid. Proper crumble, not what looks like breadcrumbs, which is what a lot of other places look like. This was the real deal. We shall definitely be going back again….soon hopefully. Thankyou for a lovely dining experience.

it was our first visit here last night,5 adults and 2 dogs. We were made so welcome from start to finish and the food was excellent. Oscar our rescue dog said it was his favourite pub due to the treats he received from the landlord, we will be back, thank you for a lovely evening.

We had a lovely experience at The Chair Makers. It was our engagement so it was a special meal for us and they made the effort to put rose petals and a romantic table decoration on our table. And all congratulated us and made it a wonderful occasion. We love going there and always feel welcome. Can’t fault the food on that day or any time we’ve been there. It’s a lovely homely pub with wonderful staff and great food. Xx

We went with family, the food was amazing, we have been a couple of times , and never disappointed. We got a lovely warm greeting, big smiles, they are always checking to make sure you have all sauces, and to make sure you are happy with your food, i dont know where to start but here goes, they do the best chips ever, I believe triple cooked to die for, italian pizza is amazing, the Christmas roast is the best, salmon is very good, our 89 year old said it was the best Christmas pud he had ever eaten, the apple crumble with cinnamon is lovely, creme brulee to die for, i could keep going. The only thing i would say could be improved is for older generation to book by telephone, as they find on line booking difficult, but hey that is a small thing, this is a great pub in the country to eat at, and the owners are mega friendly and really want you to enjoy your experience, we will definitely be going back, well done all, and a merry Christmas to you all.

Whilst we are regular customers of Angus and the team at the Chairmakers they never fail to impress you with their friendly and excellent care and service. I took a friend for the first time on Friday 3rd December and he was so impressed with the way the whole place was run. His dog, Bill loved it too. Thank you Angus and the whole team for being such value and excellence at our favourite pub.

Carvery was good value and the belly of pork and crackling was divine. Wine was on the expensive side.
