My husband and I stumbled on the pub whilst driving past on our way back to the West Midlands after a lovely weekend at the county fair and I was attracted by the sign outside saying they had won a food award back in 2010.
The pub was fine and the sign outside boasted of a special offer of £15 for a 2 course Sunday lunches or £20 for a 3 course lunch from 12-5pm
My hubby went to the bar to order the food at about 4.00 and was told that there was only 2 meat options available, and not 5 choices as per the menu so we both chose the lamb.
He also ordered a soda water and half a pint of beer and was charged £32.
When he came back to the table I assumed he'd been charged for 2 x 2 courses so was looking forward to the advertised choice of deserts, the lunch was extremely average I thought, 2 slices of lamb each which was quite fatty, big burnt Yorkshire pudding, under cooked veg and really pale roast potatoes which were still quite hard.
I didn't moan as it was ok and I thought if its 2 course then it's not bad.
When no dessert turned up I went to order another drink and asked what we'd been charged for, he said it was £14.95 each for the one course, so I said we wanted the 2 courses for £15 and he said they stopped doing that offer at 2.30, I felt abit annoyed as it didn't say this anywhere, I even checked the menu on the wall again outside and nothing.
While we were there about 3 other couples came in asking about lunch and they were told it was finished for the day (the last couple arrived at about 4.30, I just don't think they could be bothered, definitely not worth half the money we paid, and I left feeling abit cheated, not somewhere I would recommend at all.
Got the impression the staff just couldn't wait to clock off, wasn't made to feel welcome at all.
