We went with my brother visiting from Scotland. We were looking forward to a pleasant ambience in a local hostelry. Unfortunately the service was sadly lacking. Though junior staff were friendly, they couldn't make up for the overall disorganisation. They were slow to take our...More

Initially served at our table by a very grumpy man with a beard (the owner?) who did not welcome us at all and just barked the question: "Do you want drinks?" at us. (A young boy serving us later was more polite - his son?)...More

Sad to say this pleasant local pub which has offered acceptable food for years is now serving inedible nastiness. The quality used to be variable but never downright bad, now it is. Whoever is cooking just doesn't do it well, and apparently doesn't understand flavours,...More

Terrible. Terrible. Terrible. No not the food, because we didn't actually get any. I'm talking service. We placed our order although the majority of the menu was "finished". Should have realised that there was a problem when the table next to us received their food...More
