We've eaten here twice recently, the first time poor, but given we descended on the pub in some numbers with no notice thought we'd give them another try, this time having phoned ahead to book for a party of 10. Frustratingly it was no better. To summarise, the drinks are too expensive for the location and ambience, for example £3.65 for a pint of average bitter. An excellent bathams bitter is around £3 in pubs relatively local to this.
On food, the evening menu certainly isn't low cost, at around £10 to £17 for a main, so I'd expect decent quality and service. Neither has been delivered on our visits. The most recent resulted in a one hour, twenty minute wait for one main course, two children's meals which came out last, and two sea food platters, which were clearly frozen food.
How on earth anyone running an establishment with such potential can get it consistently so wrong is beyond me. It's in a good location, near to both tourist attractions and a good local catchment area, yet the management clearly exhibit a blend of incompetence and carelessness towards serving paying customers in an appropriate way. I'll not be giving a third chance and would encourage others to vote with their wallet in a similar manner.
