My sons have visited this place and spoke highly of the food, so we went expecting a good experience too. The welcome was warm and we were seated outside under a shady tree with a good view of the river Dee. We ordered the Big Pig sandwich and the St Louis sandwich which duly arrived and I was underwhelmed. My pulled pork was a gloopy mass of shredded pork swimming in a gravy and not how I imagined it would be. It tasted ok but I did not like the brioche type roll that it was served on. The fries were tasteless. The St Louis sandwich comprised of a slice of slow cooked beef also enveloped in a gravy served on the same type of roll while the fries were hotter than my serving. The food was served on a plastic tray covered with a paper liner and this too was a bad idea. The coleslaw and gravy was absorbed by the paper lining so you had to eat carefully otherwise you might have eaten some paper. I was really disappointed as I was hoping that this establishment might have become a favourite.
