Decided to visit the copper beech after hearing good things about it!
When we arrived, we were stood at the bar and nobody acknowledged us, until I said, "excuse me, we've got a table booked", bearing in mind, we were only the second table to be seated so the restaurant was hardly booming!
Then when we were seated with the menus, the food menu had a good variety and we all chose separate meals, one of the meals we ordered was ham and eggs and then the waitress returned to say there was no ham left but there was gammon, decided to go for the gammon but wished I'd not, it was very salty! Probably worth having a check up after for clogged arteries! Usually when I finish my meal, I like to take a little back for the dog however I wouldn't feed it my dog!
The pie was ok however the chips could've broke a window! Why cook fat chips if they are going to be roar?
Also, I asked for my egg to be runny but not overly, it came out and I couldn't tell the difference between the egg and my runny nose!
What chips were edible, I decided to ask for some tomato ketchup, however, they'd ran out!
How the hell does a pub run out of ketchup the 1st weekend in January? In fact, how does a pub run out of ketchup full stop?
Needless to say, None of us would waste our money returning! Was tempted to call at the chippy on the way back but was in need of the toilet as the food we were given went straight through!
When I told the waiter that the food wasn't acceptable, I was told that the comments would be passed to the chef, no complimentary drink or reduced bill offered.
It was very awkward as I just felt that they weren't bothered about our comments, they need to sort it out as the actual place is nice and could be made into something a lot better!
I don't usually write harsh reviews however this place needs a kick up the backside!
