We had a lovely meal here this week. The steaks were cooked as ordered with a choice of sauces. We ordered pepper sauce and Stilton and both were tasty. The chips were served in a big bowl for sharing. Lemon meringue pie and trifle followed. Both were delicious. The pub is changing hands next week and I hope the new owners settle in.

We had a fabulous Sunday lunch with friends it was fabulous. (4 of us had beef and 2 had lamb) It was cooked beautifully very tender and very tasty. It was also very plentiful, you nearly had to roll us out We all had various starters and we all enjoyed them. The staff were efficient and very friendly. A great way to enjoy Sunday lunch thoroughly recommend it.

Met with friends for a catch up lunch with my 4 legged friend in tow.
We were greeted by a lovely, older, waitress and shown to a corner table.
Almost immediately another waitress, all but, demanded our drinks order, not a good start and she obviously had skipped thr customer service training course.
Menus were handed out, the same menu has been going since Noah built the ark, now that may suit the octogenarian, but come on make it a little more interesting.
Eyes were rolled by little miss bossy when we said we weren't ready to order and we were told she would be hack in a second!!!
The nice waitress came back with our drinks and took the order.

The chef appeared with a large bowl of water for the dog and a bowl of meat off cuts and made a huge fuss of him, which restored some of my faith in the staff.

Salads arrived, beef and chicken. Plates were loaded but it was mainly lettuce with a few slices of cucumber, tomato and diced pepper. The chicken. Was so tough it was inedible, but the dog enjoyed it amd the beef not much better, we complained but the staff were not interested.

After declining pudding, nice to see the 1970s haven't been forgotten in Yoxall!! The rude waitress appeared and banged the bill down on the table, we hadnt asked for it and the place was reasonable empty. 5 mons later she came back and said card machine? We ended up ending our catch up and paid and stood in the car park talking!!

Sadly this places is all terrible style and no substance. We will not be back.

Nasty Woman.

The waitress you refer to did not demand your drinks she asked if she could get you any drinks.

Our menus are extensive and all dishes are popular you and your friend, not friends, chose from the two meals for £16 menu.

On your salads was as follows: mixed leaves, iceberg lettuce, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, onion, red and green peppers, celery, grated carrot, sliced orange, boiled egg and a pot of coleslaw.

Your friend commented on how good the food was on the courtesy check and at no time did you complain.

After looking at the cctv and speaking to all of the staff involved I find your attitude vindictive.

Be a food critic by all means but be a truthful one.

Visited here with friends for the first time. Although it was very busy the staff were very attentive and the food from the lunch time specials menu was very good. Good, honest food. Very good dessert menu, would recommend the sherry trifle, terrific. Can't wait to visit here again soon.

Visiting for a birthday treat, I decided to try a special offer on a mixed grill, whilst there was plenty of meat none of it had seen a grill , I think a sous vide was used here, due to the insipid meat with no trace of bbq etc. and the plate swimming with liquid. a mixed grill in my opinion should be dry, this meal needs relabeling" mixed boil" ,very dissapointed, my wife had a lasagne which she said was delicious.,

Thankyou for your comments Mr Massey the meat had definitely seen a grill and was not "mixed boil" and if you had called me over I would have been glad to show you the kitchen and the grill but sadly that will now not happen. Thankyou for saying the lasagne was good.

Steve.
