we popped in for a drink yesterday afternoon having heard that there would be some childrens entertainment happening between 4pm-6pm, so as we had our 4 yeaar old grandaughter staying with us we decided to pass through.
It is certainly a family orientated pub/restaurant, busy but warm inside- the temperature was rather cool outside yesterday, so i t was quite a welcoming feel. The age group varied from veery young children with parents through to teens with boyfriends/girlfriends.
We found a table and i went over to the bar to order our drinks.
The barman came to me quite quickly, however he hadnt noticed that there was a customer already waiting- i pointed him to the young lady who orederd food. I then asked for our drinks. My husband was having a brandy- i asked how much for a double measure, it was £1.50 extra so i orderd. I had to ask what brandy it was- i wasnt offered a choice here. Anyhow it was Martell- so that was fine. Arrived in a tumbler glass- i asked for a brandy glass, but told there werent any but shown a wine glass!!! Ha Ha. What a great barman. ..I kept the drink in the tumber. I then asked for a small coke for my g.daughter, and was told they only sell large. Ridiculous- what 5 year old wants a pint of coke. Ordered in any case, no alternative.
I ordered a mocha coffee and was told it would be brought to the table.It was- mug, no saucer- spoon and 2 sugars put straight onto the table. How unhygenic. It was hot and i enjoyed it, but the service and the way the drinks were served was not good in my book.
Entertainment for the little ones was nice and it gave us adults chance for a chat whilst they were more or less looked after and fed loads of sweets!!.
By the time we left at 6.50pm the place was chock a block.
Apparently this ebtertainment happens once a month every Saturday, so we will probobly go again with our g.daughter. No shorts or coffee or coca coola though. Have to think of some other beverage that will be served in appropriate drinking vessels. !
