First time visit for us and it'll definitely be the last! I had the beef Sunday roast. Everything on the plate was well and truly over cooked and the beef was like leather. We won't be back!!!

We have booked our Xmas meal with the three pigeons. We expect to get the 20% discount when we pay the balance on Dec 1st. We was told this to be the case at the point of paying the deposit. My daughter in law has informed me they were told they didn't read the small print. And therefore were not made aware of the true payment system. We have been mislead. When we booked we had a verbal contract from the member of staff whom we were lead to believe was the manager that we would get our 20% off when we pay the balance. We would take you to the small claims court if you do not honour this contract.
