“Stay away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The first time we ate here 2 out of 4 of our meals were still frozen in the middle to which the landlady apologised (they advertise fresh food) the meals were taken away and presumably heated up in a microwave.
About 1 year later we thought we would give them the benefit of the doubt and give them another try, mistake, as I tried steak and ale pie the crust of the pastry was stale but the landlady refused to accept this and insisted it was fresh that day, I do know what fresh pastry should taste like but she was adamant and without an apology, I never ate the pie but also never paid.

Thank you for your review. Please read the other reviews left since yours.
I am sorry that you felt something that we do NOT freeze was frozen. Fuirthermore anyone who has met the landlady - my wife - will simply not believe that she spoke to you in the way you imply.
I guess we wont be seeing you again but would welcome the chance to serve you a meal and get it right for you this time - but we can only do that if you give us the chance.
