A group of 6 of us arrived at the Nateby Inn at approximately 12noon on Easter Sunday, the pub was empty, a lady who was the landlady said Hello, and walked away, we went to the bar and enquired regarding may we purchase sandwiches, at which the landlady said, "we are not doing sandwiches today, we are so busy with lunches", I repeat the pub was empty !! We then went onto purchase 4 alcoholic drinks, a soft drink and asked could one of us gave a cup of tea, but we were told we are not serving tea !! The landlady then seemed to be training a young girl in how to take an order, while we had our drinks and packets of crisps !! A few people then arrived and went through to eat, some meals were served, we then went to leave, and a group of 3 people came in and enquired regarding lunch, and we're told by the landlady hope you don't mind waiting a long time because the service will be poor !! I then went to the ladies and as I left noticed an empty dining room, clearly used if you were a resident, I looked in to see dirty tables left from breakfast, and a Buffett display with cereals and fruit all uncovered, it was the first and last time we will all visit the Nateby Inn.
