We went to the Raven for dinner last Sunday. It has been recently taken over and the new landlord is clearly making a lot of progress to improve on the last few years. It is working as he and his staff are warm and friendly. However, the food was awful. The first course of queenies were OK, I have eaten them elsewhere and these weren't as good but the Chilli has to be the worst ever. It didn't taste homemade and unfortunately a disappointing meal generally. Hopefully it is work in progress and I will go back to see if it is the case.

My apologies firstly that you didn't enjoy your experience at The Raven. We are constantly striving to be better and I am always available to talk with if there is a problem with a meal. On the day I was not made aware of any problems with any meal that went out on the day. I will be speaking with Richard my Head Chef to ask about the chilli, but I can assure you that it was homemade as are 99% of our dishes. I will be checking our next batch of chilli when it appears on our specials board again. In the meantime please accept my apologies and I look forward to seeing you again here at The Raven. David Haigh, GM
