Had the Sunday dinner platter was great but think the mash needs to be in seperate dish like the green vegs. Some background music would be nice too.

Everything was perfect during our visit. Good food and drinks but what sets this venue apart from other establishments is the quality of the staff. I would particulary mention Eric for his atttentiveness and sense of humour but all staff were exceptional

I've been here a few times with my lovely girlfriend and a few friends many of times, and it's not even our local! Staff always have a smile and a positive attitude and the atmosphere of the place is just a delight

Expected more, the starters were lovely, but the beef over cooked so didn’t order, the tuna couldn’t be cooked rare so had to choose again, the chicken burger was to much , my husband had the pork belly, it wasn’t crispy, it was tough. Definitely...our 1st and last for a meal .More

We came to Joshua Bradley as we've been a few times before, we've not been out since lockdown 2020 and wanted to enjoy our first meal out. Right from the start of the evening, the staff were friendly, attentive, professional and despite the weather being...very very hot, the food was on time, delicious food and perfect in every way. The staff member looking after us was called Sarah and I'd like to mention her in particular because she made our night, she was chatty and full of beans, knew the menu like the back of her hand and was confident in recommending the best bits on the menu, she made sure we had everything we needed and checked in with us throughout the duration to make sure we were happy. She never stopped moving despite the heat, from table to table making sure all the customers were happy. The only issue I had was the broken fan in the orangery, it definitely needs fixing but that didn't impact on the food or service. Also, the cheese and onion pie was GORGEOUS.More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The food was delicious, not just the normal pub grub. The service was amazing, couldn’t ask for anything more. Our favourite local! The outside seating area is lovely too, even a little climbing area for the children.

Like many others, we were made to rearrange our wedding a number of times due to lockdowns, this was made significantly less stressful thanks to the adaptability of the JB team. The final change in date meant that we were also post renovation so we...had the absolute pleasure of having a beautiful fresh space to use, with amazing indoor outdoor facilities which made the day flow so easily, being able to utilise the whole space. Our guests were very impressed with the quality and portion sizes of our 3 course Gold wedding breakfast and also the efficiency and amazing attitude of the staff, who did an amazing job of anticipating every need. The Management team were brilliant, Elise the Event Manager went above and beyond in the preparation for our day and Lottie the General Manager ran everything seamlessly on the day, also providing additional shaded areas for guests due to such glorious weather. Thank you so much for making our day everything we could hope for. Bethan and Sean xMore

We recently attended my daughters wedding celebration at The Bluebell Centre . It was one of the last functions before lockdown restrictions were eased. Despite the limited number permitted to attend it turned out to be a wonderful day. This was greatly facilitated by the...professionalism of Lottie and her team. The 3 course wedding breakfast was absolutely delicious and far exceeded any that I had previously experienced. The drinks service system was highly efficient and was infact far better than the usual queuing at the bar you usually have to put up with at weddings. The evening celebration outdoors in their garden area was equally brilliant. Once again a massive thankyou to all of you that made the day so special for everyone in attendance. 👏👏👏More
