It was the night before lockdown.
I felt like the food was average and they were just using things up.
It was quiz night and that was fun.
The French manager was very nice and gave good service
We were seated quickly and it was a lovely atmosphere. I did have a problem with my meal, but the manager efficiently rectified the problem with no fuss and we enjoyed our meal. I did think the food was slightly highly priced for what it was, but it was hot and tasty so couldn't mark them too harshly. I look forward to going back another time (Covid permitting!).
A warm welcome, good real ales and well cooked fish and chips. All you need from a good pub.
A lovely evening
Friendly helpful staff 98%of which were wearing masks properly and adhering to all rules
Sat outside as per rules felt safe may need to fix the second heater at the table to continue
Great place to have a spot of lunch or a Sunday roast and a pint. Amazing service. Food was overall good but the beef was a tad fatty if I have to find 1 problem. Would visit again
Awful!! Cold Sunday roast badly presented the child's meal was overcooked dry chicken and raw greens
Its a lovely pub which we come to quite often . Its a shame that you only accept card payment ( many places since covid accept cash .
Came again for drinks with friends, it was really good. It was reasonably busy but the staff were still attentive and friendly. Great pub, would recommend
Great food excellent new menu! Friendly staff definitely will be coming back!
Great food, great service, and a lovely evening. Thanks
Didn’t eat just had a few drinks - nice place - will return soon
Menu was limited and the choice wasn't good.
Expensive for what it was ,burger and chips
Marvellous view and great. All staff are friendly and attentive. Dennis in particular is excellent.
Great pub, good price, just had drinks. Couldn’t give the full 5 stars for service as had to repeatedly ask for drinks and at one point asked 3 times but no order taken, but I appreciate it’s difficult at the moment with table service and the current restrictions. Guidelines being well followed and feels safe, will be coming back.
Just could be better a missed opportunity for lower Sunbury
Great service, excellent training of staff which shows.
Great service, lovely food and nice view of the river.
Waited a while to have our order taken and although the burger was nice, it looked lost on the plate with only a few chips and no salad or coleslaw. £14 is a bit pricey for just a burger and a few chips. Beer was nice but having been here a few times before I don’t think I’d be back.
The food was very good and Dennis was a very attentive waiter. He gets five stars 🌟
What a lovely bunch of staff! So friendly!
I don’t understand why people are moaning about the service charge? The staff are on minimum wage and they provide an excellent friendly service in a worldwide pandemic!
We love it here! Fab location!
Lovely evening and great food. Super service from our waiter, Denis.
Food so so with poor roast meat quality..Hefty service charge which I wasn't made aware of..Unusual outside of central London..Paid it since the industry is suffering,but probably will only drink there again..Would advice the pub chains to get rid of service charges or their business will suffer..Remember you don't pay extra for food at the supermarket because it's in a trendy area !
Sunday roast. Nice staff. Decent food.
The staff are the ones who make this restaurant. Will return as they are so good - and the portion sizes are good too!
Despite specials being shown on the website menu they are not available. This leaves only two veggie options on the menu, one of which is the burger. Unfortunately as with many pubs now the veggie patty is a meat substitute, Great for meat eaters who want to go veggie, but not for vegetarians who just don't like meat. What is it with this trend?
Disappointing menu now
It was great to get back to the Magpie after the lockdowns earlier in the year. It's always been a lovely pub, and it was pleasing to see they've got themselves really well set up to follow all the current Covid rules. The food's still great, the staff are friendly, and it's a pleasure to visit.
Lunchtime menu was absolutely spot on. More than happy with the food and service.
Excellent booking process, easy to follow instructions on arrival, friendly and efficient staff, and a nice setting for a catch up with a friend.
Really like the people at the Pub, and nice pub, but on this occasion was let down by the food being luke warm at best, most cold if I'm honest. Sadly the potatoes weren't crispy, and the little sauce-dishes of gravy had a skin on the gravy, that was how long they had been sitting at the pass (I suspect). Not the lovely Sunday lunch we hoped for on a windy autumnal day. I confess I was excited at the thought of the lunch, (as I had raved to my friend about it) but was disappointed with the reality on this occasion.
Had lovely service from the whole team, Becky was very attentive and helpful, Manos, Bevan and the lady who used to work at as a Cabin crew were all so lovely and helpful explaining all the new changes and system.
It is a lovely pub restaurant with fantastic river views. It is definitely more on the expensive side of pub grub but the food was delicious. I would see dining here as a treat. Atmosphere was great and the staff were brilliant. The staff elevates this pub from many of the others in this area. It is a favourite hangout :o)
Very disappointed, had telephoned in advance of booking to check gluten free availability.
We were seated in a dark corner and forgotten, very slow before we got a drink then menus had only a veg curry that was gluten free , so I asked waiter that I had spoken to on phone that there was online a steak & chips option gluten free.
He said he can arrange that but would take 10 minutes longer to cook separately, that was ok
BUT our other 3 meals were Luke warm and quite tasteless.
We asked for another drink when meals arrived and had to call waiter as these had been forgotten and we had almost finished meals by then
Lovely meal overlooking the river. Staff were friendly and attentive and all Covid-secure.
Food wasn’t as good as usual. Buttermilk chicken burger was a bit dry and the mac and cheese was a bit watery. Good staff and lovely as always to sit outside.
Great evening, location is just amazing and the staff looked after us really well, especially with everything going in with COVID. Would be very happy to go back
We're happy you found our staff to be so supportive during your experience here at Magpie Sunbury-On-Thames. Thanks again for the recommendation, and have an amazing day!
Great Sunday roast. Lovely outdoor decking/terrace on the riverside. Good service and friendly staff.
Thank you so much for your positive comments about our pub, have a great day! We're looking forward to your next visit with us!
Had not been to the Magpie for years, as I'd had a couple of bad experiences. However, on this occasion, we were very happy. The service was excellent, as was the food. My only gripe was that I'd booked a standard table, and we were seated outside (which I hadn't requested) - would normally have been fine, but was pretty hot to be sitting outside eating a roast lunch! We weren't given the option either, so not sure why you can choose on seating when booking if they're then going to ignore it. Otherwise, no complaints at all!
Thanks for taking the time to let us know how we did. Have a great day!
Food for my friends were amazing.unfortunately for me less as i am gf,df, and it was no options just steak.it would had been good if i would have more options. But I love to go an seat on the terrace..
Please put some more food in the menu.. for people with intolerances.
Thank you. X
CandeV, we're glad to hear you enjoyed your visit. We are going to have a new Autumn menu which should be more gluten free friendly. I hope to be of service to you again in the future. Best wishes, Magpie Sunbury-On-Thames
The service was brilliant, and food lovely.
They've a well organised Covid friendly system in place, staff very attentive, so no need to go to the bar etc.
Also still running the eat out 50% off discount, so great value for money.
Hi Kmo4, great to hear you enjoyed your visit to our pub. Hope to see you again soon!
Great spot by the river. Simple uncomplicated menu, great service (and taking your covid19 security seriously) and still doing eat in to help out. Food was great too. Highly recommended.
redrunner, we're glad we could help! Thanks again for taking the time to leave us this feedback about your recent visit. Take care!
