First class steaks, lovely dressed salad, excellent service, chef came to us and asked if food was to our liking, which we thought was a nice touch. Overall good atmosphere would recommend.

“Very poor service and bad attitude.”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We booked a table with a Groupon deal that included a glass of wine , main course and dessert. The girl at the bar was new and did not know the difference between beer and lager. We asked for one large glass of white wine and a pint of beer and once it was poured we were told that they did not do large glasses of wine even though the glass had measures marked on it. My husband asked if they could work out the price and was told no and the wine was taken away and I was poured a white wine out of a small bottle , my husband paid for these drinks. We both ordered steaks which were O.K. but when we asked for two glasses of red wine as per the deal we were told that they had poured my large glass of wine into two glasses ! We said we wanted two red wines with the steak and they brought one after some discussion my husband ordered half a pint of beer. There were only two options for the dessert even though they all cost the same and we would be charged £2 extra for any of the others. When we were leaving a boy came after us saying we had not paid for drinks. On going back to the bar the girl said she had forgotten we had paid for the first drinks but owed for the half pint even thugh my husband did not get his glass of wine. As he was paying the landlady came over but was not in the least interested in the bad service given. We decided that a meal at Faulty Towers would be better than this.

“Not what it said on the packet!”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Upon arrival we did not receive a warm welcome (restaurant/pub was cold!!!) as per advertised on their website, and there was confusion regarding the timing and name of the booking. No table had been reserved for us, and we were told to take any table, which wasn’t an issue as there were plenty of unoccupied tables, however for following customers this became an issue. We were able to order from a limited main menu (even though we had prepaid for a set menu from a Groupon promotion) and the waitress took the order from the table. The food which arrived was average. The steak had a high percentage of fat, and not cooked to customer requests. The Black pudding was over cooked, and the grilling plate needs a good clean as meat was running in grease. However the green salad had a very complimentary salad dressing! We were not asked if the meal was satisfactory and if we required anything in addition. The house wine provided with the offer did not appear to actually be on the wine list; instead it was 8% ABV. We waited 45mins for the table to be cleared after the main, and we had to ask for the waitress to take the desert order from the table. We felt awkward as there were families waiting to be seated for their meal (which was also pre-booked).

We then asked to speak to the Landlady who ushered us to the back area of the restaurant (away from the rest of the customers). We tried to explain the experience we had received to her, not to get a refund but to help with further improvements that could be made. Her standard response was “refer your complaint to Groupon”. However the complaint is not about the Groupon voucher but about the actual service we received, or lack of it. Her attitude toward us was rude and when her husband walked through the conversation, he then made a sly comment and I personally thought he was aggressive in both his tone and manner. Apparently the waitress service we received on our set menu was out of politeness not through standard policy as per stated in the menu (however the table next to us also got waitress service!) and we did not see any other customer make their order from the Bar.

Overall, there appeared to be no attention to detail and the management needs to go on a customer service training course, specifically designed for the restaurant trade, as “Please”, and “Thank you’s” go a long way!

The overall experience was not worth the £80 as per advertised on the Groupon Voucher.

“Traditional Pub Fare”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Visited the above during February 2013.
The location is good as is the car park. We were greeted with a good welcome and a pleasant atmosphere.
The restaurant area is not too congested - I was not too impressed with the menus as they looked as though they had used marker pens removing items no loner on there.
We ordered the Steak and the mixed grill - The steak was OK - The mixed grill was acceptable - Good quantity - but quality not above average - Steak was not very good remainder was OK.
Desert was Meringue /Ice Cream and Cream - This was quite good and woudl order again
The servcie was by a young lad who was extremaly efficent and polite
