The worst meal I have ever been served in a pub.
We called at the New Inn for lunch. There were no other customers and the young barman was cheerful and friendly. We ordered drinks and looked at the menu. A young man with CHEF written on his overall was close to the bar and I asked him if he had personally made the Beef and Ale pie. He confirmed that it was home made and that he had made it and so I ordered this and we sat down with our drinks.
A family came in with two small children. The children were really too young to be there, they were noisy and every so often a 'top note' scream emanated from the youngest. The parents asked if the TV could be switched on so that this might distract the children. We now had a large noisy TV and two noisy children in a small bar! Conversation between my son and I ground to a halt!
The food came to the table. It was hot - but that is all that could be said for it. If I had cooked the meat pie I would have been thoroughly ashamed to serve it. The meat was tough, lacked flavour, was under-cooked, under seasoned and tasted of Bisto!! The pastry was not home made and the whole thing had been heated to death in a microwave - it was just a thick gloopy mess!. It looked and tasted tasted quite disgusting and I left my meal.
The barman asked if we were happy with the meal and when I told him how unhappy i was wanted to know what was the matter. He seems surprised by my reply. We left the pub very quickly and we shall never return.
The pub is run by Marstons and,when I have completed this I shall be writing to their Head Office to complain. It isn't good enough to serve this kind of awful food and expect people to just accept it and pay up!
