Two of us for a quick pub lunch today. Pub was empty apart from a group of young children sitting quietly playing near the bar. No other customers to be seen. Ordered 2 drinks and 2 soup and sandwiches. Choice of sandwich fillings was limited to egg or cheese, so chose cheese. We added a portion of chips to the order.
Sat outside in the garden and waited for the food to arrive. And waited. And waited. Eventually it arrived. Soup was cold and inedible. It was incredibly salty and had a strong taste of chicken stock cubes but the overriding thing was how cold it was. The sandwiched were 2 slices of cheap white bread, slightly curling at the edges and stuffed with grated cheese. It was dry and unappetizing. By the time the cold soup had been eaten, the chips still hadn't arrived. When they did, they were hot and fresh but we were offered no condiments of salt, vinegar etc.

It wasn't an expensive meal, just soup and a sandwich but it could have been so much better if decent quality ingredients had been used. As for the soup: I don't know what to say other than it wasn't like anything I've ever tasted before.

We visited the Farmers Arms for Sunday Lunch with our grandson. My wife and I had the Beef Roast and our grandson had sirloin steak. The roast was excellent and plenty of it. Our grandson reported that the steak was great also. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Will certainly visit again.
