Being newly resident in Berkswell, we are unfortunate that this is our local :-((.
We are lucky in that we can dine out 3-5x a week. We have eaten here once. The mussels were overcooked and bread stale. The staff were very 'corporate' i.e. they spoke the script- but with no real care behind it, more a case of ticking the boxes. Unfortunately, with so many nice eateries in the area you don't risk another visit.
On the rare occasion that we don't want to drive and let ourselves go a bit, we have a walk down for a few bevvies. I have been ignored by staff and management types whilst waiting to be served- though a regular had them
running to serve him-thats okay then!! I have also had the 'script', no recognition or banter or welcoming.
We also went in one Sunday at 2120. Only to find all the bar trays etc cleaned and stacked, the bar area being mopped and to all intents and purposes looked much like they were closing! How awkward did we feel 65 minutes before close time??!!
Needless to say, we spent our hard earned in the Bulls Head in Meriden last week-twice- at £250. And how nice and welcoming it is in there. Well worth the extra effort and paying a taxi for....
