          Very disappointing! Belly of pork under cooked. Sent back and waited for so long partner had finished their meal. Yorshire pudding burnt to a crisp. Roast beef arrives at rable with gravy already slopped over it. NO apology. Very poor attitude by staff.

          There are comments on water outside, and a problem with flies when people are dining! Are these normal problems?!!!

          No problems with any flies, but we did go in February, but the pub and rooms upstairs were spotless.
