This lovely little pub should be a cracker but it isn't. The landlord and landlady seemed lovely and you almost feel a bit guilty in giving such honest feedback but...the atmosphere when we walked in was a good one, busy with tables of people looking like they were enjoying themselves and the simple pub food they had in front of them. The drinks were inexpensive and the draught ale was good. We sat chatting with some nice people and then the food arrived. We could tell from the menu that it wasn't going to be anything special and in Britain 30 years ago, you'd have probably thought it was ok. But as our food standards have got so much better, you expect a little more than what was served. I opted for Fish & Chips as the slogan in the menu said they were the best in town (an outmoded piece of marketing also circa 1985) The fish and chips were fried in old oil, the batter was very greasy. The tartare sauce and peas were ok but it really wasn't very nice. My partner had something unremarkable as well, so unremarkable I can't remember it. Come on landlord and landlady - either stop serving food or do it properly. You can't charge £11 for a main and serve up greasy poor mans food.
