“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Shocking service, barbaid named megan couldnt even crack a smile! Got accused of my friend for 'sneeking' in drinks when the pub was empty and we bought 2 bottles and a coke for my friend and he didnt have a bag so couldnt see how he could sneek in a drink! Pathetic service wont be returning to this pub ever again!!!

“WORST PLACE EVER !!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

NEVER have such a poor experience !! food was ALL microwaved, beer expensive and flat and as for customer service..... Ive worked in customer service for 20 years and if i EVER gave the quality (or rather lack of) i experience(from one female seemed to be in charge) here i would be sacked !!!!
please, please rethink your attitude to your job or a very well established local could end up closed. just a but of advice.

“Playing at it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012 via mobile

Went to our local last night. Ordered a burger and curry deal. Curry was good. Burger was so over cooked it was hard on outside. As the price is cheap we went too bothered. There was no table check to see if all was ok. Went to order puddings and were told they had closed as they were short staffed. Only had 1 server on and he could not serve a dozen people at the bar, most of them had full drinks and serve food as well. We were not informed that they had closed food and this is not the first occasion this had happened. The manager had also decided to take the evening off leaving one poor lad on his own. He was apologetic but we were v disappointed as we wanted to make an evening of it. The coop across the road had our business instead.

“awfull food, dreadfull service, inconsiderate , rude , unfriendly staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

Went as a family for Sunday lunch, Menus on tables offered a 2 for £8.49 deal, only to be told that the offer had finished, so why was it still on all the tables? Ordered Sunday roast, but could only offer chicken or turkey. Waited 45 mins for food, the meal was probably microwaved with undercooked vegetables, tough breast of chicken, on the bone (not sliced as expected) and bland just cooked roast potatoes. The staff serving were totally uninterested in being helpfull. One lunch had been ommited from our order, and we had to wait another 45mins for one more roast lunch to arrive. Only one of our group (5 of us) ordered a pudding, part of the lunch 2 course deal, and that took an age to come and had to be requested several times. When it arrived , it contained synthetic sqirty cream and not fresh as expected. All in all a very poor lunch in what culd be made a good place to eat. I have eaten in many 'marston' pubs and never been disappointed until now.
