We live locally, my first ever visit.
Table booked for 2.30pm - table not ready until 2.50pm.
Menu and a good mix of roasts and about 7-8 other dishes. Enough choice and not too much to make choosing a chore!
Food arrived. Took a little time for all meals to arrive. Food was hot, but the serving dishes and plates like warm, for me a disappointment...... a roast needs hot plates and serving dishes to keep that food nice and hot over the meal.
The waitress in trying to pass a roast to me spilt an amount of gravy down the back of another member of family and their jacket. She was of course mortified and got a cloth. But it stained the clothes in question. Would of been nice if management had been told by the waitress and it acknowledged back to us.
Food? It was good.... but not great. I expected tastier Pork it just lacked flavour, the crackling was limp, the caramelised apples were not caramelised and tasted bland, the vegetables and potatoes were very tasty. Good Yorkshire puddings as well. The burger one of our party had was very good.
Desserts - we chose not too. Found it strange with all the good West Country Ice creams that they choose to sell Italian Gelato...... not what I want to see personally.
I gave an average rating, which actually is more than fair, considering the gravy incident.
I’d give this place a second chance but would need to be better on the next visit.
