Booked here for a Sundaly lunch party of 10 people. We arrived in glorious sunshine and asked about our booking to be told our table had not been set up so we asked if we could have our table set up outside in the lovely garden (which is bordered by the old millstreams on two sides). They said that wouldn't be a problem. We then ordered drinks to find they had run out of real ales which was a bit disappointing for a Greene King pub. We went outside to wait for the rest of our party to arrive and then went in to order food. They didn't have the Vitality salad so we ordered a second ham hock salad and were told they had run out of that as well, and could only do one and it would be a small rather than a main course size. We then asked about our table and she said you have already got one, so we said the table we were sat at was for eight people and there were ten of us, she then snapped well all the tables are fixed so what do you expect me to do, I was told you were OK! By this time the proper movable restaurant tables set up on the terrace were all full so all we could do was move a couple of chairs down which we couldn't actually pull to the table because it was fixed bench seats. I asked if the table we were at could be cleaned as it was covered in spills and bird muck and she agreed, but it never was. The food arrived quickly and was fine, the salads were good and the roast dinners pretty much what you would expect but generous with the meat and roast potatoes. The coffees were also really good. All in all I would say this a beautiful location, a sympathetically restored but stylish interior, a good pub menu with nice food but they need to get on top of staffing and service. They also need better planning, running out of salad and beer during a forecast heatwave is not really good enough
