“You must be joking - what a waste of a prime location”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

This is the prime spot in Clevedon - and that is the problem. The owners clearly believe they don't need to bother as they have a steady stream of fresh customers ie day visitors, who they do not need to convince into returning. The inconsistent reviews tell it all - some happy locals - mainly drinkers I guess, but a significant majority of unhappy diners.
The kitchen is probably too small for the number of covers judging by the quality and slow service issues and they charge mid-high prices for re-heated poor quality food.
I booked Sunday lunch for 4 people at 1pm - "Can you make it 1.30?"
Reluctantly agreed - despite this we were still waiting for our meals (only one course - carvery) 1hr 45 mins later. It finally arrived and was awful - school dinners was the best summary. Deep-fried roast potatoes you couldn't cut, and thin pre-packaged beef/lamb that had no flavour plus watery veg.
Such a shame and a waste of a fantastic location.

“Nothing wonderful ,but ok.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

This was an ok meal,rather like many of the chain restaurants, the staff were pleasant enough,but it lacks a good atmosphere ,and we also thought our meal was pricey given that it was so ordinary .

“Poor food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

We were in Clevedon for a long weekend, called at this pub, I am gluten free, asked the waiter if they did gluten free, "whats that"? I explained no wheat "oh and i dont eat fish" ..."what about the tart you could eat the middle and eat leave the pastry"!! "what about the salmon"? ..."no i said i dont eat fish". "Well how about scampi"..."thats fish"..."oh i dont count scampi as fish"!! excuse me but thats in breadcrumbs.."oh is it" unbelievable!!... So to be on the safe side i ordered the carvery (without gravy) most people were ordering it and i must say it looked very good and a nice plate full.. "sorry none left".....it was only just after 8pm...Well i will have the gammon but Please dont put onion rings on because they are in batter...yes you guessed it.. My friends ordered the beer battered cod and chips..Mine came ..I have had thicker slices of bacon ..it was so over cooked i could hardly chew it..my friends cod came ...very thin and about the size of a beer mat.....A local came and ordered the cod when his came it was a traditional thick long piece of cod.??..The people at the next table had just finished..well i say finished they left most on thier plates.. the waiter asked "everythink ok" .."no said the man i have never had a thinner piece of gammon it was like rubber ..And we waited so long ...we wont eat here again"..All in all the service was slow, in fairness the waiter was doing his best...We were told there would be a 20 min wait ....just over an hour!!..No complaints about the staff (except the gluton thing) but the food terrible.....and for the price of it i expected better...Will not be going to the Moon and Sixpence again...
