“Lovely Meal - Great Atmosphere - Great Pub, Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

We booked a table of 7 in on the 23rd for the Christmas Party menu, for our family and it was just fantastic !!!! Jenny was on hand as always - big smiles, always met with a warm friendly atmosphere, and nothing as always was too much trouble for he r!!! She truly is a great manager and hostess and can juggle things effortlessly - a great asset for any employer. Food was amazing, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it, even though, the restaurant was packed with many large Chritmas parties, all celebrating the festive season, and nothing was too much trouble for any of them. So Thanks to all.

“Food sooo poor, shame because otherwise nice pub”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2011

Keep trying in hope this will improve so plopped in for lunch. Club sandwich was worse club sandwich ever seen. It is on menu as charbroiled chicken, bacon and mayonnaise with choice of bread. We asked for wholemeal which came as over done toast. Filling was pieces of cold chicken (not warm or char grilled) mixed with small bits of chopped bacon (cold) mushed up in mayonnaise. Filling was between two slices, all that was between other slice of toast was some greenery and a bit of tomato.. Mixture had obviously come straight from fridge. Nothing fresh about this sandwich. Complained but was told that it was how club sandwiches come. I have never in travelling all round the world seen such a sorry excuse for a club, nor been made to feel so bad about saying it was wrong. Ate the chips which we had ordered as a side but they were soggy and not fresh. Food here continues to disappoint.

“Mixed feelings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2011

I have visited this pub restaurant several times over the last year and my experience is mixed.
During my last visit in October 2011 we ordered two meals, ham, egg & chips and a tarragon chicken with vegetables. Unfortunately they got the order wrong and brought chicken in parma ham which was not good as the person who ordered it does not like parma ham. I was left in a position where I had to eat my meal whilst we waited another 15/20 minutes for the right meal to come. It was fine when it arrive but it did spoil the lunch.
During my previous visit the food was great, arrived on time and was hot and tasty.
Prior to this I took clients for lunch and one person in our group ordered a vegetarian pasta dish and when it arrived it had pieces of chicken in it.
There does seem to be a lack of attention to food orders. The staff are pleasant and the overall atmosphere is nice but they do need to sharpen up a bit and get things right.
