Awful. Went for a "roast" which to us means the food will be roasted. It arrived delivered in around 4 minutes, my wife Mrs Jingles was sure she heard a ping. Nothing wAs roasted. The beef was boiled, the veg, broccoli (on the turn) and carrots were not cooked, but more like dipped briefly in boiling water. In fact tepid more like as they arrived lukewarm. The Yorkshire pudding was not one one aunt Bessie's but more like one from the tesco value range.
Then the beef, the beef had been more boiled than the veg. It was therefore rubbery and I decided I would rather eat the tongue from the left foot of my five year old dr marten's boot. Mrs jingles had to eat in her coat as the pub was cold. Her bottle of highland spring (:50p in spar) was £2.60. The only real interesting thing there was the couple who wheeled their in in one of those ponsey three wheeled prams that parents often wheel little Hugo or Imogen in.
Mind you when the waiter minced over and asked how our Meal was we both said "lovely" so we only gave ourselves to blame.
