    We booked a table and was told someone was sat on our table by which the staff was very rude about. There was 5 of us in our booking and they placed us on a 4 man table and offered to pull up a chair. In the end we had to pull another table over to make room. Ive never come across more unpleasant and rude staff working in a restaurant. Our meals all came out separately. My starter come out when my peers had already finished eating there’s. Within two mouthfuls my main course was with me. The stuffing was non extistent on my Sunday dinner, Yorkshire pudding was burnt and the vegatbles cold. The staff was extremely rushed and we was told to hurry up and order which is ridiculous considering we precooked a table. When we asked for extra gravy the blonde short haired waitress was extremely rude about it was made a comment saying right that’s it now anything else. Extremely unprofessional. On top of this, we waited an extremely long time for pudding. We had to ask for our tables to be cleared then we got told by a young man who was a waiter the kitchen had closed and our pudding wasn’t coming. When we expressed we had ordered them the staff must of got together and got our puddings together. Our cheesecakes came out however by the time the sticky toffee pudding came we had finished eating. We asked for cream with our cheesecake as that is what it comes with. The waiter come back with squirty cream in a jug, one portion when there was three? The sticky toffee was inedible and the custard cold. The worst service and meal I’ve ever had. The blonde haired waitress with lip piercings and the mixed raced waitress behind the bar need some lessons on how to be polite to customers as there customer service skills are appalling and rude!!! Also the young boy with dark hair needs to wake up before coming into work. Horrendous!!

    Lovely Sunday lunch menu, very nice food and good value for money. Service could be better, had to wait while 5 meals were served before cutlery was brought for both starters and mains. This should be done before tou get your food in my opinion. Also table wasn't cleared of dirty dishes until we were leaving. Wasn't even very busy and plenty of staff so no excuse.

    I believe there were staff shortages so we had to order our food from the bar rather than the normal table service. We were told on entry that there was ~20min delay in food orders, so staff were perfectly open with us. The staff worked very hard on a very busy day, so the wait for our orders was understandable. The food quality was good as always. Lots of background noise as the football was on - a pity there isn't a quiet area for those of us that didn't want to watch the game..........:)

    Local venue pub that based on this visit very average / disappointing. Staff pleasant & welcoming other than that regrettably not really any other positives. Steak fairly good. Roast dinner bland overcooked plates over loaded!! Poorly presented. Loud pop music inappropriate. Had to request table to be cleared & music to be turned off overall not a pleasant dining experience would not be in a hurry to return . Other venues in Sale far superior sorry !!

    The waitresses were lovely - the food was ok but the manager has a bad attitude ,is rude and clearly turning a blind eye to the crowd of men taking Coccaine - we were unfortunately on a table right next to them . Despite the little bee being our local we won’t be going there again ! Horrendous - we couldn’t wait to finish our food and get out of there :-(

    We arrived after booking a table for 6 adults and 2 children may I add from 2 households.. the tables were quite far apart so we asked if we could move closer we was advised from the staff this was ok to do so when we was approached by a door man who said we couldn’t we then checked with staff again who said we could and then once again the door man said we couldn’t and that it wasn’t up to the staff it was up to him and off we did he would leave the premises and they would have to close. This resulted in us only staying for drinks and going elsewhere for food. The staff did there upmost to accommodate and had no issues. I feel I would recommend to a friend but not in a large group

    By chance our table was booked on the England v Germany match so pub much busier than originally thought. However Rachel and her colleagues were tremendously helpful and found us an outside table as the back of the Little B. We had a wonderful night , enjoyed the excitement of the football fans..though from a distance...

    Second visit in recent times. Service very friendly and efficient - Nicki particularly so. My food and my daughters was very good, my wife had the Yorkie Wrap which she did not rate - chicken a bit dry and the Yorkshire Pudding wrap was a bit rubbery, however she really enjoyed the sticky toffee pud. Certainly the Little B will be on our regular list.
