The food is as always, delicious and cooked as requested. The only negative thing that I can add is that, for vegetable tempura, onions are not suitable. But otherwise, great food, great service and great price.

We went to the Little Brown Jug for Sunday lunch, our first visit.
We were seated promptly, given the menu and offered drinks. We both chose a roast, my husband the beef and myself the pork.
My comments on the food are that my husband's portion of beef looked rather skimpy for the cost. My pork was a proper portion. I would have liked my gravy in a jug. Our roast potatoes were not crispy - they looked white and anaemic and the yorkshires weren't crispy either. The vegetables were nicely done and there was a good variety and quantity.
When I asked for the menu again to see what else was on offer (for perhaps another time), the menus were completely different! I think perhaps they were the week menus rather than the Sunday ones.
The place is very attractive and there was a nice ambience. Our server was helpful and attentive to just the right degree.
So all in all, get the spuds and yorkshires right and up the quantities on the roast beef and it's a winner.

Using average as a barometer , The quality & taste of our Sunday roast was well below average. Excessively expensive at over £ 100 for two adults with two young children .

It’s a cash cow chain and not worth visiting in my opinion . Sorry guys but you really do need to up your game in this day & age !

Friendly and helpful staff but the food was cold when it arrived. Replaced without hassle. I found the roast pork a little meagre and quite chewy. The roast chicken was a better bet. Roast potatoes were uninspiring.

Will return but will avoid the roasts.

Recently had a family meal at the Little Brown Jug, a table for 11 people. A big table can sometimes be a bit tricky but the meals where of food quality and served at the same time. No complaints. Friendly and helpful staff.

Lovely pub and staff very good, food nice but poor value for money. £12.95 for 1 fish cake on spinach but just a teaspoon of spinach but then found out had very little spinach but would have been nice to have some veg. Not good value and won’t rush back.

The LBJ understands good food and how to serve it. Food is good, wholesome and well cooked and includes traditional pub grub alongside a number of other offerings. Service is friendly, fast and efficient.

My favourite little spot for food. Friendly staff who remember you, it’s never crammed pack so that you can’t eat and talk in peace and it has such a lovely ambience. Love the food, always perfect in every way and why I’ll always keep coming back to this little spot.

This pub has been a local of mine for 27 years and it that time it has changed hands a number of times and gone up and down on the food front. I haven't been in to eat for a while but will definitely be back. This visit we had an amazing meal, great service and the atmosphere was great. Well done, you're back up where you should be. Highly recommended.

I would recommend.... with reservations.
The pub is beautiful, the staff are excellent, efficient & friendly. However the food is not cheap & when we went the other evening & there were only 6 people dining in the restaurant, the food was pretty poor. We had nachos to share to start...NOT a very clever idea placing the nachos on a paper napkin/serviette in a dish, as the melted cheese just welded everything to the paper!
Then we had fish & chips, which is usually very good, but the chips were inedible! As if they had been reheated/cooked from lunchtime leftovers. They were rock hard, dry & not terribly hot. We were very disappointed as this was our christmas get together, & tho we complained, no one actually apologised for the poor quality. They only knocked £4 off the bil,l which wasn't even the price of a decent pint!
We will think twice before eating here again. Excellent Larkins ales tho...but perhaps better to try another Larkins pub to eat in.

Another Sunday meal at one of our favourite pubs where the welcome and the service was up to the usual high standard. By booking an early table we were able to benefit from a more relaxed service, before the usual very busy period later during the day.

We hadn’t been for a couple of years and decided to give it a go for lunch in the 2nd week of December. We booked on open table which was quick and easy. The food was delicious and there was a Christmas and normal menu to choose from. Food was served quickly and staff were attentive and helpful. Would highly recommend!

We went for Sunday lunch and ordered mixed roast, we waited over an hour for our food which I accepted because I thought it would be worth the wait. How wrong was I, everything was dry, almost like it had been in the oven for the whole morning then left on the side for a few hours. It was a complete waste of money as my partner did not eat any of it, so I cooked when we got home. I was very disappointed.

Lovely venue & friendly staff unfortunately on this occasion the food wasn’t great.
Roast potatoes very hard and burnt, some of the veg wasn’t cooked. And over cooked Yorkshire Puds.
We did mention it and decided against dessert. We had an early booking but it was very busy and I think it may have reflected in the food in wait times etc.
Was an annual get together and we still enjoyed our meeting but felt a little disappointed as it was the first time our guests had visited the Little Brown Jug and we had hoped the food would have been a little better.

Really nice country pub, had their award winning fish and chips. Service was excellent, really friendly, attentive and helpful. Food presentation 10, chips 10, batter 10, fish 8.
Overall great place to eat, gets really busy at peak times. We went at 3 pm ( pre booked ) and it was nice and quiet.
Highly recommended.

The service was rather poor today and we had to wait a while for drinks, for our order to be taken and for our table to be cleared. There seemed to be few staff on hand to serve. The food was the usual good quality and once we ordered the food it did arrive reasonably quickly.

We booked a table for 2 and at the time of booking asked for a quiet area next to a window, unfortunately we were seated originally next to a table of 6 not next to a window, but were able to move soon after arriving.
The roast was lovely although my friend remarked that it wasn’t hot, it could have been hotter but we didn’t mention it at the time.
The venue is very popular and it was very busy, being wood flooring the noise levels are higher and a crying baby didn’t help! We would definitely return as the venue is beautiful and the staff very attentive.

It was a busy Sunday evening so expected to wait a little while. Can’t fault how polite everyone was just seemed a very young team and not overly pro-active- that said we had a lovely time and the food was good. The ‘award winning’ fish and chips was no exaggeration- best I’ve had in many a moon.

Having been to a few country pubs over the years to find the best roast I must say at the prices being charged I was expecting something quite out there, sadly I was very disappointed the potatoes which are one of the most important ingredients to making a good roast had obviously been cooking for so long that the actual potato inside had vanished and it was merely a hole. The little brown jug I must say is a quaint and cosy pub however had my meal been what I had expected then I would be returning many a time and yet I was so hoping this was the one to beat so many out there. It wasn’t cheap either and I feel the vegetables where on the boring side and lacked flavour themselves
Based on the poor lunch I opted out to try a pudding and that is always a must but just didn’t want to waste any more money
I look forward to hearing from you as would appreciate your feedback too
Thank you

Food and service were excellent and I'd recommend them to anyone. But experience was really spoiled by squalling babies and tpheir over-loud and inattentive parents. Conversation at our table was near impossible. I suppose a certain amount of this is to be expected at Sunday lunchtime in a family-appeal eaterie. But wouldn't it be possible to reserve a quiet area for those without accompanying children? And I like children, but not for lunch.

Took my parents for lunch on a very rainy mid week day, despite the weather, was surprised how busy it was. Service was ok, but they messed up one of the starter orders, so had hot food waiting on the table whilst error was rectified.

The roof started to leak close to us half way through the meal, which was a first for me!

Overall the food was pretty good, the fish and chips were a bit greasy. My burger was nice and the Mac & Cheese portion was very healthy!
