We took my family to Ye Older Reindeer this last Sunday for lunch. Booked a table and were warmly welcomed when we arrived. As we had two children with us we chose a table just through the bar area and away from the majority of the public so no-one would be disturbed.
We were offered a choice of roast lamb, roast beef or nut roast. The plates, when they arrived, were heaped with meat, yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes and roast parsnips and then we had large bowls of cabbage, carrots and beans brought to us. Extra gravy was no problem and we also had plenty of mint sauce and horseradish sauce supplied. My sister-in-law is a vegetarian and said that the nut roast was very good.
The meals were hot and extremely tasty - the only little criticism was that I think the beans were probably frozen as they didn't taste that good.
We very much enjoyed our meal and the only downside that we noticed was that the lady from behind the bar frequently went outside the side door, right next to where our table was, to have a cigarette, and didn't wash her hands when she came back into the pub. I don't think she was serving the food but as it was so obvious every time she went outside I think it would be something to consider for the benefit of everyone sitting in the pub
We will certainly be going back on other occasions
