Turned up for lunch at 13:30 and ordered 2 x cokes at the bar - £2.50 each for a glass of coke! (not a pint glass either) Outrageous - but I suspected it might be a free refill deal. Asked for a table for two and received a surly reply that someone would seat us in a minute.
Had almost finished the coke before being seated. Led to the 'conservatory' which was crammed with screaming kids and I was placed facing a long banquet table with what appeared to be a complete famdamily, with my back to the window. After waiting 15 mins, finishing the coke and listening to the screaming kids with no view other than this family we thought about ordering more drinks, but that would have been a total of ten pounds alone for drinks for the two of us.
Looked at the menu. Very expensive, no daytime deals, inattentive staff and rowdy kids with parents who either could not or did not wish to control them.
Not my kind of lunch, this place has gone downhill.
No one came to take our order or even apologised for keeping us waiting - so we hot footed it out of there to find a more accommodating pub.
Disappointing, wont go again.
