I had the 10oz Gammon followed by the Banoffe pie, I was amazed that the Banoffe pie has real pieces of of Banana in it compared to other places I have dined.

    Food was fine, served on hot plates, which we like. Service at little slow, an we had to keep asking waiting staff to either take our order or for drinks etc. in end fetched drinks ourselves. Having kept Marstons pubs ourselves, we think staff could do with retraining.

    Disappointing experience which spoilt the evening – Ordered Sunday specials at 1930hours only to be told 5 minutes later that they were not available, stopped serving. Ordered from main menu again to be told 5 minutes later that one of the meals was not available.
    There should be signage to state a time after which the Sunday specials can be ordered until and the staff should be aware so as to advise customers in advance that particular meals are not available when taking orders.

    The starter took over an hour to arrive and the breaded mushrooms appeared to have been baked to an inch of their life. One of our party saw a mushroom disappear into the distance as it was so hard the fork just sent it skidding off. The wine was good, the Mexican chilli chicken was very good but the steaks were not medium but well done (one of the party wanted well done so she was happy, but the others were not so pleased).

    The staff were very curtious but seemed rushed off their feet. We had booked in advance selecting 7:30 because we wanted to dine early so to be told that the food would be a while was not the news we hoped to hear!

    The place was easy to find and well located with ample parking. There were a lot of tables but also plenty of room to move between them. The table was clean and well presented. Some of the menus looked a bit tatty but the choice of dishes in them was really large. We easily found something to suit all our tastes and dietary needs. The wait for food was acceptable. Some of the dishes were a little underwhelming - overcooked burger, vegetarian lasagne without any distinguishable vegetables - that said, the portions were generous and it's nice that you can swap chips for extra salad etc. Indoor play area for the under 5s is a bonus and I know mid-December is not peak time but it would have been nice to have an outdoor play area which was free from rubbish. High praise for the staff, who were friendly, helpful, and polite. This was our first time eating at The Saxon Penny and it was suitable as a venue for a child's birthday but I wouldn't go there on date night!

    I booked a table for 6 for Saturday lunch. We all ordered pizza. The service was quick and the young staff were efficient and helpful. The food was good and 2 for 1 prices. I asked for a box to take home half my pizza. It was no problem. I would go there again. Recommended.
