We came here for a family meal and was sadly left quite disappointed. We thought it was going to be a lovely meal, especially with all the mentions of home cooked food! To start with we was waiting a long time for our food, and the place was dead. 2 of the 4 meals were ok but the other 2, was another story! Both of the 2 were so oily but the main problem was that mine was inedible as it was so overcooked. I'm not one to complain usually, as I don't like to make a scene, but my main meal was so overcooked that I could only eat a couple bites (i'm not exagerating either). I struggled to cut it with my knife it was that bad, which is saying something! It wasn't something that can easily be burnt either. I had a quick apology and was still charged full price for mine, which I thought was a joke. Not a discount, free drink or even desert offered. I would have complained further about this, but I didn't want to risk spoiling the family night further, especially when our family had travelled down especially. The pub itself was friendly and the locals seemed nice and chatty. Overall though, we won't be returning sadly!
