Lunchtime:- Tuesday 15th July 2014
Lets start at the top as we did when we arrived on Mill Hey,Haworth on a beautiful, busy Yorkshire day ...as it went downhill just as steeply.
Assumption 1-We decided to eat here as there were plenty of customers inside, hungry bus trippers outside and it was lunchtime.
The staff seemed to "mill" about.
Assumption 2-Busy,means a popular venue with staff trying to keep up with demand.
Order drink at bar for our table of four- 10mins to attract staff,order and place on table.
Went back and ordered and paid upfront for food -5 mins.
1 Soup, 2 Cheeseburger meals and 1 roast dinner.
Staff advised then apologised twice that there would be a wait. Ok, freshly cooked food does take time.
40 mins later "food" arrived.
Veg soup-unfinished, may have been going "off".
Roast beef-Yorkshire pud overflowing in gravy hiding tatties harder than Jason Statham's razor.
Cheeseburgers...where to start?...these were £6 each. Definitely not homemade -out of packet, in a bun, dollop of melted cheese on pattie.
No sliced tomato, onion or lettuce in bun. In fact no salad at all on plate just 9 fat soaked pallid chips looking as if they gave up the ghost.
We were too shocked to fully detail when asked by the waitress the
perfunctory pleasantry "was everything ok with your meal?"
Replied "Very poor... burger dry ...would benefit from addition of salad." And with that exited into Haworth's buzz.
We had experienced something unforgettable.
Absolutely agree with other unfortunate reviewers.
Worse burgers than a greasy van outside at closing time or indeed at a fairground.Chips? Yes, possibly from Chippy around corner.
Chef where were you?... day off?
Landlord where were you?
Serving up "food" like this from the bad old days of UK pubgrub 1970's in such a beautiful busy location.
The waitress was fine.Ale was fine.
We feel we wasted not only our money but more importantly an hour more we could have had in beautiful Haworth and had I checked tripadvisor,eaten in one of the many better reviewed eateries nearby.
Lesson-never assume -check tripadvisor!
