First and foremost, this is a very nice pub. It has a good selection of ales at the bar and a very good menu. The food also lives up to the menu and is above average for pub food. The service however was very confusing.
A group of 10 of us went along for a couple of drinks and some food. We had just finished a long exhausting walk and were more than ready for some lovely refreshments. They were unable to provide us with a table to seat all 10 of us, which of course was fine. Instead they suggested that we take two smaller tables next to each other. Still no problems. One of our party kindly bought a round of drinks for everyone, sadly another member of our party accidentally broke a glass as he was being served. Ice and glass went everywhere and of course he apologized and was given another drink. The other 2 members of staff remained friendly and professional, however our waitress held this against us for the remainder of our evening and proceeded to slam cutlery down on our tables. When one member of our group's food did not arrive, he politely asked where his was and was given quite an attitude. He asked what he had done to deserve it and was told that it was because we had come in causing trouble and breaking a glass. Another member of our group asked for a burger and was reprimanded a little too strongly for not specifying what type and was given an unpleasant attitude when he inquired about the salad that came with it and the sides.
We believe that we behaved well and were not rowdy and were therefore so perplexed by the waitress' attitude that it was actually funny. Perhaps it was just her sense of humour and we took it the wrong way. All that being said, the rest of the staff were perfectly fine and we enjoyed our visit very much. Next time, we just don't want there to be such an atmosphere. Our advice would be to be careful not to break any glassware :)
