My mother and I were initially attracted to the seemingly good value and wholesome lunchtime menu, the pub favourites and salads seemed promising. We were incredibly disappointed with the Starter platter which for £8 for just one person contained mainly deep fried chicken dippers and mozarella sticks - not as it was presented as on the menu.
The 'light lunches' were frankly terrible. I ordered 'Home baked Ham' egg and chips, and received packet ham, and peas which were so tasteless I left most of the meal. Im happy to pay for packet ham if thats what is advertised, but seeing as I was expecting 'home baked ham' this was a case of blatent mis labelling. Again, my mum ordered a light lunch of 'beer battered cod' which again was quite simply a thin piece of frozen cod rattling around in an over cooked battered shell. I would have been happy to pay for a meal like that if it was what was on the menu, however the menu described everything we ate to be 'home cooked' and 'home baked ham', most of which was processed and over cooked.
We felt the experience was poor and certainly not value for money. The low quality of the food really let down what is a well furnished and homely pub, a real let down. We did however have a friendly waitress, but overally we will not be returning to the pub, it has gone downhill food wise and the lunchtime menu, needs to be re worded. It would be better to offer a quality menu for a slightly higher price.
It is a shame that such a convenient location cannot maximise its potential, particularly as at a pub not far away there is quality food offered at realistic prices.
