Great Monday Lunch
Mar 2017 • Couples
Got the drinks from the bar, 1pt Doombar & 1/2 dark fruits strongbow - reasonably priced. Found a table for 2 - ordered the meal at the bar - all ok - wife had Mexican Meltdown & asked for sweet potato chips instead of rice - no problem - great - I had Gammon -Tastic & asked if I could have it on a large skillet instead of a plate - again no problem - great. Meal arrived about 15/20 mins later - WOW! - both meals were great & mine was on a large very hot skillet & was still hot at the end of the meal. Thank you, normally when one has a large meal on a plate that it becomes cold very quickly.Well done to the staff - bar man & waitress, also spoke to the manageress who was also very pleasant. This is the second time we have been in the last month & will be going again before not too long.Would definitely recommend this place, excellent value for money

GREAT BRUNCH
Mar 2017 • Couples
This is a great eatery for a quick brunch with a great menu to suit all tastes whether it be just a quick snack or a full meal it has it all. The place has recently been refurbished so very nice carpets and furnishings, clean toilets and friendly and welcoming staff.

We just had a small plate for lunch to try it out and we were not disappointed. The meal arrived in about twenty minutes from ordering and by a very pleasant young man who later returned to see that all was ok with the meal. Will try something larger next time as was not quite enough for our lunch time appetites. All in all a thumbs up!

revisit following very bad experience
Oct 2015 • Family
Visited the king and Miller last night, last visit was 4th May this year, had an horrendous experience last time and left a review on here (not sure where all the old reviews have gone?) And only did this because the complaint lodged with M&B was ignored!! Anyway, credit where it is due, service was courteous and quick, food was good and overall experience was what it should be. Will definitely give them another try! Well done to the new team.

Sharp Metal Object In Child's Food! BEWARE - picture attached
Jul 2015 • Family
Our family visited this pub/restaurant on Thursday 9th July 2015. My six year old son had beans as part of his dish and my mother in law noticed that he was making an odd noise, as if he was in pain and then he pulled something out of his mouth. It was a two inch long, sharp metal spiral (picture attached). My son said that he nearly swallowed it but it jabbed him in the side of his mouth (thankfully!). The staff took details and said that a manager from Mitchell's & Butlers (the owners of the pub chain) would be in touch soon. It spoilt the meal and really scared my son. It took M&B's Food Safety Department over a month to reply with an almost generic response about not being able to isolate the cause of the issue and offering us a £25 voucher to dine in one of their pubs/restaurants again. Seriously, who would want to risk eating in place that can't guarantee that there won't be sharp metal lurking in their food? Their lack of caring and the lack sincerity within their email show's how little they must think about the safety of their customers. They (M&B Food Safety team) have now acknowledged that it was probably dropped into the food during cooking but have said that If we want to pursue this any further then we will have to speak to a solicitor. All we wanted in the first place was an apology and an explanation. They said their PR team would be ready to respond if needs be! Disgusting.

Very poor service!
Oct 2014 • Family
We went here after visiting Sundown adventure land (which is brilliant)

When we asked for a highchair we were told they had to remove them all as they were unsafe! Brilliant!

I then went to order as we were starving, I wanted a chicken tikka curry and was told by the very rude gentleman behind the bar that the curries weren't delivered that day so they had none - I then asked for lasagne and they too failed to be delivered! I do understand that pub chains like these don't cook everything fresh but the staff surely could have worded this better with at least an apology. Each staff member genuinely looked depressed and miserable. We ordered fish fingers for my 1 year old (who had to sit on Daddy's knee because of the high chair issue!) when the food came they put in front of her a whole battered fish with bones in it!! I was mortified we just got up and left without even attempting to ask the staff for our money back.

We are not local to the area so drove home hungry and in shock at how appalling the experience was. Would not recommend this place to my worst enemy!
