Today we visited the Roaches Lock for lunch which for me turned out to be a disaster. My wife's meal was ok but the mixed grill that I ordered was poor to say the least. When the plate with the mixed grill was put on the table my first impression was " is it the chefs day off"?. First thing... More

I had lunch here recently and liked its location,ambience and pleasant staff-but the food disappointed.The lunchtime offer of 2/3 courses for £5.95/£6.95 looked good value but sadly I chose to eat off the a la carte menu.My starter(a black pudding and apple stack)was awful-luke warm,characterless meat and almost indiscernible traces of apple smothered in a dreadful cheese sauce.A Northern classic...

Secondt ime here, we had lunch with a group. Service was excellent with the set menu quite cheap at 5.95 for two courses and an extra pound for three. We ate off the a la carte which was very good, chips came in a mini bucket, but unfortunately were a bit on the hard side. nice position at the side... More

She decided on a burger(no surprise there) so I thought I would try the chicken BLT my wife had the... More

I came across this pub by accident but have now been on numerous occasions. Friends and family have also been regularly on my recommendation. The food is excellent and really good value particularly the lunchtime menu. The food is home cooked and it shows. The landlady aggressive? I don't know what pub previous reviewers have been dining in but it's... More

The woman who runs this pub needs to learn some customer service skills! She is rude, arrogant and unwelcoming. Customer service costs nothing! This is a local pub so we pop in a few times a year, she has been unwelcoming every single visit. My last visit was terrible, she told us off for sitting at an empty table with... More

Me and my friend arrived at the pub wanting a quiet drink and something to eat and we left gob-smacked after being aggressively told off by the landlady three times. As we left we were told we are the only ones to have ever had a problem (unlikely) Her customer service is shocking, she can not take criticism without shouting... More
