After a few months of traveling my friend and I were delighted to come across this pub promising a Sunday Roast. We both ordered the roast chicken. When it arrived our initial reaction was that the portions were disappointingly small. However, that proved to be the least of our worries. The food was overcooked and seemed to have been reheated, I would guess, a number of times. We began to eat but when my friend bit into her chicken she discovered that while the inside was white i.e. cooked, it was also frozen! We got the attention of one of the waiting staff and my friend proceeded to explain that her food was warm on the outside but frozen on the inside. The waitress stuck her finger into the chicken and confirmed that it was indeed frozen. My friend requested another dinner to be brought out. A few moments later the waitress returned with the same dinner (the one that she had stuck her own finger into) and placed it once again in front of my friend. We then had to explain that this wasn't acceptable for reasons that we assumed to be obvious. For a finish my friend had to return the 'meal' and went without food. I, on the other hand went on to take some mouthfuls of rubbery chicken and stale yorkshire pudding. Not impressed!
