“beautiful pub, terrible food!”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Myself and husband went yesterday for sunday lunch for the first time to this restuarant. It was very busy but we got served striaght away by our lovely waitress who even found us a table by the fire. This is a lovely place with a great ambiance, and good service but unfortunatly, it went downhill from there! I ordered half a roast chicken and chips with a roasted garlic and parsley dip. If that chicken saw an oven I'll eat my hat. the skin could only be described as gelatenous! see through slimey and wobbly, it was awful. the 'chips' were frozen, small overcooked wedges which tasted of cardboard, and the dip was the best. Mayo with TWO WHOLE RAW GARLIC CLOVES plonked in it! It was a joke. My hubby ahd fish and chips,and whilst nowhere near as bad as mine, tasted like a cheap frozen battered fish you'd get from the supermarket,served with cheap tasting frozen chips. Our waitress took mine off the bill and looked embarrased when I showed her the dip. This was a special occasion lunch completely ruined by by sub-standard pre packed food at a high price. There is just no excuse for it. Wont be going again.

“Frozen mop more like frozen food”

Visited with a party from work at Barclays one Thursday luchtime. I had the wild boar burger. Burger raw and frozen in the middle - bit into it and blood and fat ran out - absolutly disgusting!

“Homely pub”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Typical pub serving food. Not pretentious, but good wholesome food. Courteous staff even when very busy which is quite often at lunchtimes when we go.

“Nice Gastropub !”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Went for lunch today ! Firstly the service was excellent. the waitress was pleasant and attentive - clearly well trained staff. The food was ok, not a gourmet experience, but good value for money. My only small gripe was that the plates were cold, and consequently my peas were soon only lukewarm ! Apart from that, it was an enjoyable experience.

“We're on the upside again”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Enjoyed an excellent dining experience sat in the gardens with friends till dusk. The service and food were faultless - it was a Thursday night mind - which are usually the quieter times. Having said that, we have been on quiet nights and had the exact opposite experience.
If only the management would read these reviews and take on board the comments here - the quality might be stabilised in the positive scale? For now it does appear that The Mop is back on form. Keep it up please!
