We had our family 'Christmas' meal here yesterday. I booked it over a month ago because we thought the Christmas menu looked great. We were asked to fill out a pre order list for our meals and pay the deposit the following week. It took a lot to do this as family have not got access to the internet etc but the following week we went in as asked. After making a trip out to the pub we were told it wouldn't be a Christmas menu as on a Sunday and we don't need to pay a deposit. However the normal menu would have xmas elements... wasted journey and put out!!!!
When we arrived yesterday we were immediately told that we had to be out by a certain time. Some of the staff were rude and even looked at watches etc. We were made to feel generally unwelcome. The food itself was not great, especially the beef. And as for a Christmas element, non, just standard sunday lunch.
It is a shame I have had to write this as we have had a lovely evening meal previously, quite special. However I feel so angered and frustrated as we booked way in advance and have been nothing but messed around. What should have been a special occasion was made standard rushed pub grub.
