We had a fantastic visit to The Hourglass for a Sunday lunch with the family. We were greeted at the entrance as we arrived and shown to our table which we had booked in advance. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful with all aspects...of the service. The Sunday roasts were delicious and the portion sizes were very generous, also having the added extra roasted potatoes offered was a nice treat to be had by all.More

Hot and cold food , large and small plates available. Prices are excellent, value for money ....Outdoor seating canalside is lovely . Indoors is a mix of old and modern design . Main courses and deserts were excellent. We were very pleased.More

Stopped for lunch with 5 friends. Having just had an operation it was difficult to find something on the menu I could eat but they went “off piste” for me with no issue. Duck eggs amazing! Friendly and efficient service, couldn’t do enough - would...def recommend and revisit. Shame was raining as you can sit in the deck by the canal.More

This was our visit to The Hourglass - and we were very impressed by the standard of customer service. All staff were professional, attentive and lovely - a credit to the management. The food is of a good standard too - the sizes are reasonable...as are the prices. The food is all freshly prepared on site and they have a fabulous range of vegan desserts. We are looking forward to returning to sample one of their legendary Sunday roasts. Lovely little find next to the canal in DevizesMore

Popped in for lunch because we were nearby. Great service and really lovely food. We only had sandwiches but they were packed full and served with a really tasty salad and chips. I really like strong coffee and wasn’t disappointed. The staff were friendly and...attentive, but not intrusive. We Will definitely be going back.More

Having checked out the menu on website we were looking forward to our visit. However, on a arrival we were given what was basically the lunch menu which didn't include a lot of the dishes which had been on the evening menu. We did order,...squid, garlic mushrooms and burgers which unfortunately turned out to be overpriced pub grub and not great. Please update your website and let people know what you are offering is a very basic menu, I did express our disappointment to the staff and hopefully this was relayed back. On the plus side the staff were great especially the guy behind the bar who provided a great welcome and was very helpful, however we won't be eating there again until the quality and variety of food improves greatly.More

Ventured in due to knowing Jim. Have worked within hospitality for 25 years. Decor pleasing and the welcome even more so. Served promptly with a welcoming smile. Karen was an absolute pleasure . Informative without being pushy. My honest opinion GO…..

My husband and I visited The Hourglass this evening for a birthday meal and we were not disappointed! The new owners are so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They have given the inside a new look and its stunning. The food was delicious...(we were stuffed by the end but couldn't stop eating!). Although we went as a couple, we would certainly bring our young children too - it's a very family friendly place. We will be back very soon!More

Wonderful relaxing evening! Got a special spot outside right next to the water, and our kids were happy to be outside! Food was tasty, and great value for money! Service was awesome! And they were wonderful with our children! Will definitely be back!
