Thought we would try as its one of two pub/restaurants within walking distance of home. Bar staff just pointed us in the general direction of our booked table which was made up for double our booked number though not actually laid up for anyone.
Whilst ordering drinks the waiter/barperson had to be told to add ice to soft drinks as we were not asked.
When our starters were brought out we were told that the plates are very hot (which they were) even though they had salad, prawns and pate on them we then had to wait for cutlery which was only a dessert spoon, first time I've had salad from a spoon, then had to ask for butter for the bread and chutney for the pate as specified from the menu.
Main course. My partner likes her steak rare it came out very well done and nobody came to check if it was okay. My sons lasagna from the child's menu was ordered with ciabatta and salad it came out with chips so we asked for the bread and salad once again hot plates with salad. His lasagna was a good size portion for a child's menu but had seven layers of pasta and one layer of meat. Mother in-laws chilli-con-carne was okay though rice was a bit dry and my partner who works in catering wouldn't of touched it.
We skipped dessert!
It comes to the bill even though we were one table of about five eating meals the bar supervisor had yet to put our bill onto the till, so we had to wait whilst he checked the menu for prices and then as some meals came off their "earlybirds menu" had to told where to find the price by my partner.
But on a positive my gammon was spot on and Father in-laws ham, egg and chips was good, even though the ham was crispy due to the hot plates.
