we visited this afternoon after good trip advisor reviews so decided to travel 25 miles to have Sunday lunch. We dined with 6 adults and four children.
As we looked at the limited menu where the museum certainly wanted to "showcase" their roasts we all opted For the beef roast and what then came was shocking !!!!
2 slices of beef and a home made Yorkshire then the vegetables which were cold !! Hardly cooked and then the so called roast potatoes were cold, hard and not really roasted !! Not want I or my family wanted at £16 per roast . Also the service was slow and we had 1 waiter coming for what seemed miles withe 2 plates at a time so by the time the last plates were delivered the first plates were cold !! Perhaps another waitress could have helped ?? Feel they have really missed an opportunity to showcase the good English roast dinner.
We then ordered dessert which was ok - quite a dense sticky toffee pudding however what shocked me more is that someone had let the dessert leave the pass with to massive chips ( not the potato variety )on the plate which could have cut myself as it was really sharp. I did point this put when it was given to me but to nothing was done.
I did give my feedback to the blonde headed owner who was sorry to hear our experience but offered nothing in the form of luring us back or saying it was unusual to give this pub a good reputation - what a missed opportunity for a lovely pub ........... But there are much much nicer pubs to dine at and considerably better value for money.
