Questions & Answers
Thank you for your quick response however it is not how I remember the experience on Sunday. You say that when you told me " not to come back", it was not mean't maliciously, it certainly came across like that. To say I was shocked at the time was an understatement. I'm a pensioner and have eaten out a lot. In fact I went out on Tues to a restaurant in Horsham which was very nice. I did tell them about what had happened at the Plough, the manager was shocked, she said she would never dream of talking to a customer like you spoke to me! (Regardless of how you feel). I think that you were just overstretched & stressed because a table near me were also complaining to a waitress about the poor service & the exceptionally long wait for their desert. Secondly I think that you were not happy with me when I first arrived and was ordering my meal and I questioned the price of the Sunday roast on the ONLY menu available in the bar £13.95 - however on the internet you were advertising on your web site, a deal over all of Easter for £12.95 which was for roast dinner, desert & coffee. Your response to me asking you politely was, "it is £12.95, the menu I had been given was for in the week". That didn't make any sense to me, as it clearly had a section saying what was available on Sunday's! I didn't bother to challenge you because I am not a argumentative person as you suggest in your response. I just believe in giving people good service and value for money having worked at the CAB voluntarily for many years. I hasten to add I have eaten at the Plough (not Sunday lunch) at least 6 times before with a friend. Had it been like this last Sunday I would never had returned. I think you should have taken my comments on board graciously, and apologise - like pouring gravy onto peoples meals - some people don't even like gravy, this is elementary to put it in a gravy boat and let people decide for themselves. If you the Manager behave like this, I feel sorry for the FEW staff that there were and their training.
