The food was above average to delicious. However I found the service to be extremely slow. I arrived and was seated at my table for over ten minutes before my server asked me for a drink order. When she finally did she asked for my meal order at the same time. She never offered nor told me about any specials or additions to the menu.
The pub has a good rep but tonight must have been an off night. I was at my seat and a guy walks in and sits at the bar. He got his drink long before I was even asked what I would like. It wasn't that busy.
The kettle chips were very nice and crisp and the onion dip was ok. The curry with chicken was even better and not overdone as most restaurants often do. Overall pleased but wish the service was improved.
When sitting someone at a table all maitre'd's should either take a drink order or get their wait staff to pop by immediately. It's basic service stand venue that wishes to be in the price category that befits that kind of service.
