Been going to the Hitching Post for many years, but never again.
Had an email on Thursday advertising the deals and they advertise very clearly a Sunday Lunch at 2 for £12. Came in today to take advantage of this offer and I was point blank refused by the young lad behind the bar. He was rude, dismissive and disrespectful. I showed him the email and he refused to honour it. Blatant false advertising.
So I paid full price as I was there and my family were hungry.
However the meal wasn’t as expected either and is poor value compared to what you can find elsewhere locally. The Hitching Post advertised their Sunday dinners on Facebook today with a picture so you would expect a similar meal to be presented in the pub but the veg on choice was completely different to the picture. No red cabbage, no green beans and most disappointingly no mashed potato despite all 3 being present in the picture advertised. More blatant false advertising. Asked at the bar what was going on and was told if I wanted mash I would have to pay even extra money. Disappointed. Fuming. Tempted to take this further. Sort it out Hitching Post.

It’s a long while since I last visited here we always found the post a nice place and the food good ,unfortunately today the food was bland ,meagre and not very nice the lasagne was so tasteless no herbs or even tomato taste the chicken was dry and with the 11 chips we got with it was not worth it the steak which should of been medium rare was charcoal we complained about the steak and another was cooked for us all together the price we paid wasn’t worth it the service was ok but no one seemed to smile there was not much greeting and made to feel welcome which was a shame the atmosphere was ok being very sunny there was a lot drinking outside not many inside so getting a table was no problem overall not a great experience be a while before we go back.

We arrived without a reservation - would definitely recommend one on a busy Sunday - but a table for was quickly found for us. Despite being so busy, we didn't wait long before our starters were brought. We then went for the carvery with generous servings of a choice of meat from 3 joints and a vegetarian option. The Yorkshire puddings and cauliflower cheese were especially good and a wide variety of vegetables. Staff were helpful and friendly, with a very attentive landlord in attendance.
