We are new to the area. Saw a Groupon for this place and I said...YES!! But when I left the restaurant I said...TOO BAD!
We went for lunch; hindsight maybe that was our problem??
The waitress was kinda rude and very curt. Like she was in a hurry to not help us. We are always, "Hi how are you doing?" kind of people.
We had the crab roll as an appetizer..LOVE.
Ordered an extra dirty martini..great bartender! And let me tell you..next to Bond, I know my martini's.
I ordered the Mums Mac n Cheese with garlic bread..first it came out super cold. I asked her to warm it up a bit and she did. It wasn't too bad after that; wish there were more sharp cheese but hey it cured my mac n cheese craving, can't beat that. The garlic bread..GROSS. It was so old and hard and it had me asking where's the garlic. There was 3-4 garlic flakes on the bread but I literally could not bite into the bread. The peas and carrots were what they are. I took those home to my dogs..they loved them.
My friend had the prime rib sandwich. She was torn between that and the fish n chips. The waitress said the sandwich. She said she liked it, a little salty but good. She didn't finish the steak fries but said they were delish.
But as always, even with the groupon we still tip according to the bill PRIOR to the discount regardless of how bad we feel the staff are.
We probably won't go to this pub again. We'll keep trying other British Pubs.
