    Lovely pub, really love the decor and ambiance. Menu was good although as someone on a diet there really wasn't very much on there that was diet friendly. I had the vegetarian sharing platter which was delicious but probably waaaay over my calories for the day! Could you put a nice gourmet salad on the menu? Waitress was friendly and efficient. My colleague asked if the bread on her fish finger sandwich could be cut more thinly and less of a doorstep, however a massive doorstep arrived - it was a lot of bread! We will definitely come back again....especially if you start doing diet friendly food! Maybe cut the bread a bit thinner!

    We have had mixed experiences at Merlins, but last night the service and food were pretty good. Not vast portions but the fish and chips were very good. Not cheap

    Good menu, good quality food, we loved the sharing platters for starter - pulled pork nachos particularly! All dishes good!

    Lovely place, great atmosphere. The young man who served was more than helpful. The food very good and excellent sized portions especially the panetonne bread and butter pudding. However resented having our dishes whipped away within no time of having finished our food. It struck me that there was a rush to get rid of us!!!

    a nice restaurant with good food. We both had the roast which was very nice but the veg was a bit undercooked. The service was ok but they seemed very rushed and short staffed
