Having been to the Schooner years ago we took family there on Tuesday night for a drink. We sat outside and enjoyed a drink overlooking the boats over the river simply lovely. We decided to return for a meal tonight Thursday...ordered drinks and looked at the menu. Unfortunately my son is a class 6 peanut allergy and soya sufferer, he carries an epi-pen but it does make eating out very difficult!! He is only 8 and had asked me if he was able to have the pizza. I totally appreciate it is very difficult for restaurants to cater but most we enter are very accommodating and can offer something. I asked at the bar and the girl said she would speak to the chef. I was then greeted with the apparent chef who greeted me with dough balls dough balls whose asking???? I said I think that's me and I just wondered what was in your pizza base if there was a label I could look at? His reply no we chuck the boxes and there dough balls so hardly likely to be near nuts!! I said right I am just concerned about the soya content but I understand if you can't check. I then said would it be possible to check the garlic bread and his words no I am going back to the kitchen we will be busy soon and he walked off!! I cannot believe the rudeness of this man even if he had just said I am really sorry there is nothing we can do. I then had to tell my little boy that the chef was not prepared to do anything.. So upsetting its not his fault. We travelled up the road to the Sun Inn who were packed (the schooner had about 3tables in eating) and they were fantastic and prepared a 3 course meal for him. Also the Red Lion said they had several things on the menu he could have but there was a very long wait. I can highly recommend the Sunn Inn and the Red Lion but having been born and bred in the area can safely say I will NEVER return to the Schooner again!!!
