This place describes itself as an upmarket Gastro Pub and its prices certainly reflect that description, However the food and service is abysmal.
Rather more embarrassingly I know one of the owners personally and the ex marketing manager of this small group is a personal friend. David now works abroad and he would tear what’s left of his hair out if he knew what his baby has turned in to.
So the details then? I asked for a glass of red wine. The barman didn’t even ask what sort all he grunted was “ do you want large?” My pint was not full and he didn’t offer to top it up. The beers was however quite nice.
Eventually we got shown to our table. No table water was offered although other tables had it ?
We ordered a bottle of white and Red which were okay for the price.
It took four requests for a wine cooler to arrive!
The starters were okay but over priced. Service was slow. My wife asked for tap water it arrived in a pint glass and he didn’t ask anyone else if they would like one.
Main courses arrived. My wife’s chicken was over cooked and burnt. My father in laws chicken pie was over cooked and stale. My mother in laws roast beef was passable. I ordered a burger with Stilton as an extra and no chips but a salad instead . It arrived with no Stilton even though they charge extra for it. I called the waitress over and she was disinterested in my complaint. I had to actually tell her to take it away and replace it. Half an hour later and when everyone else had finished my new burger arrived it now had a microscopic bit of blue cheese on it and the remnants of the cheddar they had clearly scraped off!
side salad was inedible as clearly the chef had deliberately over salted it! I asked the waitress to eat and she agreed it was inedible!
They took the price of my meal off the bill but the whole miserable experience has left a sour taste in my mouth nearly as bad as the salty salad!
Terrible experience at the prices they’re charging. Avoid!
