Having read all the fantastic reviews booked this for a small family meal to celebrate our Golden Wedding anniversary. To start with our grandson who lives in London told us he could not be with us. My daughter-in-law rang the pub and booked another place for my grandson and told them it was to surprise us On the day my husband took the cake down to be told someone had rang the pub and booked another person in - there could only be one other person so that spoiled the surprise. Now the meal - the waitress took our order and after each choice took the menu from my daughter-in-law to enter the cost into her electronic device. So the menu was like a fiddler's elbow - up and down between the two of them - not professional at all. And after all this she got it wrong and ordered an extra meal for us! After an hour sat waiting the starters arrived. My son's starter came complete with fly stuck to the plate but he insisted I did not make a fuss. Then another long wait until the main meal was served. Three of us had the set menu all having garlic mushrooms and chicken supreme. The garlic mushrooms were thin slivers of mushrooms surrounding a chunk of garlic bread and swimming in a thin sauce. The chicken supreme came on a bed of mashed potatoes, served with peas and broccoli - both chicken and potatoes very dry, Whilst we were eating one of the servers attended a table at the back of us and caught her foot in the carpet and nearly went flying and shouted out bl**** hell. Not very professional. Again whilst we were eating a dog came into the pub and wandered around between the tables and then went out again. Later some people came in with two big dogs and these were allowed to roam around the tables where people were eating. This, in my opinion, is disgusting, dogs should not be allowed where food is being served. I have to be honest and state that throughout the meal we were asked if everything was okay but how can you start complaining when you are in the middle of what is supposed to be a lovely family meal - it's embarrassing. Needless to say we were not impressed at all and cannot understand all the brilliant reviews that are on here. We certainly won't be returning.
