“Poor Service, Average Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Having experienced poor service we were presented with an inflated bill. They had managed to combine our bill with another table and couldn't remember what we had actually had.

“Poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

A lovely summers evening meant the pub was full inside and out. We had booked a table and 5 of us squashed round a table at the end of the bar, not ideal but with nothing else available we sat down. The waitress who took our drinks order didn't even know which beers they have. After quite some time we still had not been offered menus so had to find someone to ask. 3 menus were plonked down on the table. 2 f our party opted for starters, whitebait and prawn cocktail, both of which were good. However we sat with the uncleared dishes and no sign of our mains for absolutely ages. We asked for them but by this time three of us had been there for over an hour with no food. Mains were ok but nothing special. My steak pie was ok. Again uncleared plates left and no offer of coffee or dessert. We admitted defeat and asked for the bill. It was very reasonable but I feel they did not have sufficient staff on duty. Overall disappointing and I probably wont make a return visit.
