We ate here on Sunday 7th October. We ordered a lamb roast x 2 and a children's meal of sausages, mash and veggies. The pub was about half full and our meals took half an hour to arrive. My partner and I have a bit of a running thing when we go out to eat a roast, and always give our meal a mark out of 10. Well, I gave mine a 5 and that was being generous.
The potatoes were like bullets and were not at all crispy on the outside and soft in the middle like a roastie should be, the vegetables were soggy, not that warm and mushy, the gravy was bland and was the consistency of water, and the meat was just bizarre. I studied it for a bit then realised that what the chef must have done was carve some bits of meat off a raw joint and cook them under a grill. My meat was therefore dry in places, as was my partner's. However, on a positive note, the yorkshire puddings were nice and I believe that there was nothing wrong with all the main ingredients, rather the way it was all cooked. It seemed to us that the veggies and roasties had probably been cooked quite a while ago and had then been sitting on a hotplate.
Regarding the children's meal, the sausages were delicious and cooked very well. However, the mash was the most bizarre thing I have ever tasted. My daughter loves mash and had eaten almost all of it when my partner tasted it and said "yuk". It tasted nothing like mash. All I can think is that the chef put a lot of white pepper with it which gave it its strange taste. Honestly it was one of the most disgusting things I have ever tasted. Again the veg was soggy and mushy and it was not served with any gravy which I think was a mistake.
We were on holiday at the time and so are unlikely to eat there again, which I have to say from my point of view is no bad thing.
