Wedding Reception 3/9/11
After reading some past reviews felt nervous about the standard of food and service. How wrong these past reviews are, staff couldn't do enough for you they were freindly and polite and kept checking things were ok all night.
We started with chip butties in the afternoon which went down really well, then had the gold buffet in the evening. The standard of food was excellent and plenty of choice for all with plenty to go round. We could of fed the entire party again. A big thankyou to all

I've been two this pub on two occasions, the first for my auntie's wedding reception (upstairs) and the second for a carvery on a Wednesday afternoon. I found the stairs to be quite a hassle for the reception, because we had a lot of members of the family with prams which were heavy to take upstairs. I also thought the food was horrendous - later learned that my aunty had used an outside caterer!

However, the carvery was absolutely fantastic. Only 3.99 a head - bargain, 3 meats to chose from (I had a selection of the three - delicitous!) and the trimmings were cooked to perfection. The boiled potatoes were a little sweet but i think that was probably more the season than anything else!

Definitely going again.

Fantastic re development
After a few teething problems, what a fantastic offer and great levels of service. At 3.99 for a full roast dinner great value. The drinks are also good value and your do not get ripped off like in many other houses. Excellent, will visit every week.

what an experience !!!!!!!
cannot believe the pub keeps going
states choice of 3 meats on menu we got one . Gammon, choice of empty veg pots then roast pots swimming in one inch of grease!!!!!!!!!
and thats 2 hours before the meals are due to finish the lad doing the carving spent more time in the back trying to get help it was utter chaos. This is just a fraction of our nightmare Such a let down in such a short time of re vamp

Ruined a once in a lifetime celebration
Thank you Rufford Arms for ruining my folks diamond wedding. Special thanks to Ash who was lucky to get out of the place alive.The only way one of the guests could refrain from hitting him for his outstanding rudeness was to spend the evening in the car park.Gave our booked room away to another party. When told that there wasn't another party in there when we booked replied well there is now. Refuse to move tables so we could sit together. We eventually moved the tables ouselves and asked well is this ok, he replied I suppose it will have to be At least John Cleese was funny your outfit isn't!

rather tired!
I have just spent three nights at the Rufford Arms. Due to being frequently disturbed and woken in the early hours (1am) by people moving about in upstairs rooms, I am as tired as the decor looked in my hotel room. The bathroom smelled stale, and openening straight off one side of the bed, the smell unpleasently permeated the whole room .
Their saving grace was that the food in the restaurant, other than at breakfast, was not bad. The vegetables are over cooked but they say this is to cater for their older clients.
The hotel is cheap, but I would think they would do more buisiness if they improved soundproofing, and room and bathroom decor, and charged a little more to cover costs.
Overall a disappointing stay.
