We booked for Sunday lunch but were disapointed with the limited menu , some items they had run out of. The portions were small and costly for the amount of food on our plates. One of the puddings was hot outside and cold in the middle.
We will not be returning there in the future.

Our family visited this pub today for lunch. We have been many times before and always had good meals. Unfortunately it appears that a couple of weeks ago the pub changed ownership. Our first clue that things had gone down hill was the much more limited menu. There was not even a kids menu however when we asked were given 4/5 options. I had gammon, egg and chips. I almost laughed when it arrived as I thought it was a kids meal, my 2 year old daughter had more chips on her plate than I did. To make matters worse it was fairly tasteless. Didn't think you could get this dish wrong, but apparently you can. My wife had fish and chips which she described as tasteless, greasy and apparently when asked was Cod though she had her doubts. She didn't bother to eat it all as it made her feel sick and when the waitress asked if everything was ok, she advised her it was not. My wife wash offered another meal which she declined. The manager/chef etc did not bother to come to check or see us.

The high chairs were of the plastic padded type you would usually would have at home. They were both filthy, straps very stained and generally fairly disgusting. Hardly surprising when also stored in the disabled toilet! Is this against H&S rules? In the actual disabled toilet which doubles as the baby changing room, the toilet seat was broken and partly hanging off. The room was generally filthy with the changing mat itself having encrusted dried faeces. The nappy bin was lodged under the disabled hand rail therefore making it very hard to access.

In addition the staff were mot knowledgeable about their menu and didn't really seem to care. We won't be going back which is a shame as this is a fairly local pub for us that we have previously always thought was good.

We ate lunch there and were extremely disappointed by the food! We were the only clients during Friday lunchtime, so it wasn't due to a busy turnaround!!! The portions were small and the food was really average but very costly for what it was!!
However, two good points though, the staff were really helpful and friendly and they do serve lovely HSB & Seafarers beers.
