“Disappointing Meal Out”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We went here for a celebration having been told it was good - it wasn't good on the night we were there. There was one girl on the bar who didn't seem to have a clue what she was doing. There were two waitresses who were very busy. Our order took a long time to arrive but then our starters and main courses were brought to the table at the same time. They took the mains away but then they had obviously just been left on a hot plate as when they were brought back they were cold with a skin on the sauces - not very appetizing. The waitresses and a man (possibly the manager) were very helpful on what seemed to be a busy night and did give us discount for having been served cold food. This had been recommended to us but perhaps week nights are not a good time to try it?

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

Used to go here for the quiz on a Thursday about 4 years ago and it was nice food with a good atmosphere. We went a few weeks ago and it has gone seriously downhill. I ordered the chicken mayo burger and it came with no mayo and was burnt to a crisp. If you are after poor quality food with a loud atmosphere full of youngsters and miserable bar staff this is the place to go, will definitely not be going back anytime soon.

“Give it a miss”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Ate here with family last week for the first time in quite a while. Food here used to be good quality 'pub grub' but appears now to have been taken over by a bigger chain with choice and quality (Steak and chicken quite rubbery) dipping as a result. If you want huge portions and chips with everything, then this is the place to go, however, you really do get what you pay for so I'll be looking further afield in future.

“Finger Food :-s”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We often come here as it is close to home and we don't need to drive. Normally it is very good however on our last trip here the waitress wasn't brilliant and I noticed her lifting our clean glasses with her fingers inside them :-( whilst she was serving others their food we noticed she had her fingers inside their dishes also...:-s I decided to mention this to the manager who was rather dismissive and told us it was because she was pregnant so was tired and not at her best. I reasoned that though this may be the case hygiene should still be a priority, he didn't seem convinced?!?! not sure when we will be back after that...

“meals ok”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

we had an evening meal in the mundy arms, it was quite busy and eventually found a table, the meal arrived quickly and looked nice. we did have to remind them of our order as they brought the wrong food, we had ordered a larger portion and got a standard which they put right straight away, we then did complain as the chips were cold and they brought another portion. The staff are friendly, rather dark and noisy on quiz nights.
