I normally visit the pub a couple of times a year for lunch and we always choose the Chiverton Arms due to the excellent food.
Today, a great change!
Ordered the Salmon and Prawn fishcakes, with boiled pots that I had specifically asked to be served with 'no' butter.
The fishcakes were overcooked, very hard on the outside, dry on the inside and tasteless. Pots came in a seperate dish with butter swimming in the bottom, accompanying salad was just mostly chopped up peppers with a couple of leaves and two slices of cucumber.
Did not finish this meal at 12.95!!!
When the waiter came to take the plates, I stated my concerns. No apology, just Oh I thought the potatoes did not come with butter so obviously there was no communication with the chef.
Service from the waiter from arrival was very cold and almost aloof.
As I said, hopefully just went on a bad day but will probably try somewhere else next time.
