Newest Review: ... They offer sharing plates and nibbles to start (e.g. Mezze Platter £9.95, Bowl of Olives £2.25 etc.) and 'proper' starters (e.g. French Onion Soup £4.95, Chicken Liver Paté £4.75, Battered Mushrooms £3.95 etc.).

This is one of the worst pubs I've had the misfortune to visit. Food arrived late and cold, service was at best rude, advertised cask ale but had only one which I was told was off. This place may be ok if you want an expensive, very expensive glass of wine and an average lager. This establishment displays all the worst of de-motivated staff working for a company only interested in making money.

I do llike the Tame Otter for it's nice atmosphere, and as someone else has said it's always busy! But on the last couple of occassions we have eaten there the food took an hour to arrive 'after reminding the waiter' it finally arrived! 'it was a steak sandwich' half the steak was missing but we were so hungry by this time we ate it! We have been for Sunday Lunch that was okay but parts of it were cold and we got stung on the price! It is a lovely pub but with the prices they charge they have to 'up' there game! :(Also people with familys especially young children need to keep them under control as some of the near misses as the waiters and waiteress come out of the kitchen fully loaded is a accident waiting to happen!!score 7/10 could do better!

If you've been to one of these places before, you'll appreciate that the staff are really there to serve the meals rather than to welcome you or show you to a table. On this occasion, they were ...
