“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Went there recently. Steak was average chips overdone (looked like frozen oven chips) - not the best and over priced for what we got

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

Went to the Ben Johnson on 22nd Feb with wife, brother and his wife for a meal. Have been few times before but last visit was disappointing. Ordered a medium to rare steak which was cold, even the garlic butter on the top would not melt! Chips and mushrooms hot though. Sent it back and was clearly put in microwave, expected a new steak freshly cooked, but no.
On a positive note beer was good and once joined by others were last to leave. Not many others in for a Friday night village pub/ restaurant.
