My family and I visited The Jolly Thresher today 03.01.14 for lunch, upon arrival we found a table in the bar area, it had not been cleared away from the last occupants, a few empty beer glasses and the dirty napkins.
I went to the bar and had to wait a few minutes for someone to serve me, the young lady who did serve was very helpful, I asked if we could order food in the bar area and she said yes and that she would get us some menus which she then brought over also explaining that there could be a 35 minutes wait for food (it didn’t take that long when ordered).
The food was very nice I ordered the Lancashire cheese and onion pie (which I must say was a “real” pie and not one of those dishes with a puff pastry lid on) my wife had the fish and chips all very well cooked, my daughter had the chicken supreme a very well cooked piece of chicken and some nice vegetables but she was more than impressed with the mash potato which she said was the best she had ever had, my granddaughter had the young diners chicken strips (at £5.95 maybe a little expensive for a child’s meal)but the quality was good.
All the staff were very helpful and extremely pleasant especially the young lady who took our payment and Matt the manager who I had a very good discussion with about the merits of a good pie (I have already picked my meal for our next visit “The chicken and black pudding pie”).
All in all a very pleasant experience and I will return.
