Extremely disappointing experience. If you're planning an event, stay away. We booked the deck in the garden for a party and some platters to start the party. The pub wouldn't let us have the deck because the bill could not be paid by a single card so we lost the area we'd booked and paid a deposit for and the platters were of extremely low quality - the vegetarian platters consisted of sliced up courgettes and tomatoes. To kick the party off we put an amount behind the bar and asked the pub to close the tab once the amount was reached. Once again the pub failed to deliver on this simple agreement and went over the amount which resulted in a rather embarrassing collection among the guests to make up the difference. Then the pub had the cheek to charge 12.5% service charge on everything when there was no service. Expensive, poor quality and unreliable. No wonder the pub is largely deserted during the busiest weekends of the year.
