We arrived to a fairly warm welcome from the waiting staff but were given a table in the back/overflow room with tables that hadnt been cleaned. Our party of 3 , ordered the from the mother’s day menu and half the food was unavailable at 6pm ( keeping in mind this serves food till 9pm and people were booked in all evening)
The alternative Leek and Potato soup from the menu was like dishwater, completely tasteless, not fresh and was just simply vegetable stock and potatoes blended, no leeks or seasoning
40 mins wait for main courses and delivered cold, manager offered to micorwave it for us instead of fresh food replacement. Charged an exceptional amount of money for a roast, considering a local Michellin awarded pub ( within 2 miles) charges this amount in which everything is homemade, freshly cooked to order and of the highest quality and standard.
The roast we had here was dismal. Potatoes were not cooked/roasted in Goose Fat but deep fat fried , the Gravy was bisto, Broccoli was obviously boiled previously then re-heated in a microwave as had no colour left in it, the Meat was dry and re-heated , Crackling was soggy andthe Yorkshire puddings were bought in.
Overall, a far cry from the ‘fresh, ‘famous’ and ‘locally sourced’ produce they advertise both on their menus and website and not worth £13.99.
