Clean cosy small pub with comfortable eating section and nice ambience on entry. When my friend and I arrived there were four elderly people in the corner tucking into a traditional Christmas dinner. We were greeted warmly by the waitress and shown to a table where our drink order was taken and delivered quickly then our food order was taken. Twenty five minutes after we ordered soup and a sandwich each my friend inquired if there was a problem with our order. The waitress was quite rude - she did not approach our table to speak privately to us, but instead loudly stated from where she was that there was only one chef and we would get our order soon. My friend pointed out that she was asking because people who had come in after us had already been served soup etc. From the bar the waitress shrilly stated that the gentlement sitting at the bar had ordered their food before us. As I was facing the bar the whole time we were sitting there I was aware that the two men had arrived ten to fifteen minutes after we got there and unless they had phoned their order ahead - which was unlikely - this was impossible!!! Because of the confined space of the pub everyone within was aware of this exchange and my friend and I felt extremely uncomfortable. We were served our food a minute later, with barely concealed annoyance from the waitress - it was difficult to enjoy what should have been a Christmas treat for us en-route to a spa day. As for the long-awaited food - the soup was ok - a bit over thick and sludgy really and the white pan bread and tuna mayo sandwich was nothing special - It was blatantly obvious from the hilarity and banter between the two men and the waitress at the bar that if you were local and friends with the waitress the service was second to none. Visitors to the area beware!
