Visited on Tuesday with my wife and daughter
Starters of Garlic Mushrooms are to die for
Main courses of Braised Steak - Gammon -Chicken Caesar Salad were first class
No wonder the place is always busy- the standard of food is the answer

Staff always polite and helpful

Can’t wait to go again
Point to remember - book a table before you go

On staying in Pontefract we where advised to try The Cobbler, the carvery was down stairs clearly in a area that was about to be decorated!! The Yorkshire pudding was the worst I have ever had! The meal was mushy and ideal if you had no teeth!!! For £18.70 for two I wished we had not bothered!!

Thanks for taking the time to write a review, although I must say I am very disappointed to read your comments. Our carvery unit is some 5 meters in length and can not be moved from room to room so when it comes to decorating we do have to try our best to work round the situation. Keeping the pub to a high standard at all times is one of our goals and decorating helps us do this. Our carvery usually gets good reviews and am sorry you found non of it satisfactory. Did you complain on the day as our chefs would have removed anything not satisfactory and replaced it with fresh including the Yorkshire puddings. Not too sure on what day you visited as out mid week carvery is £5.95 and our Sunday carvery is £6.95. We do try our best to keep our carvery to a high standard customer feedback good or bad is always taken notice of, but we appreciate been told at the time of dining as this allows us to rectify and concerns immediately.
We do hope you will give us another try when passing as your experience was clearly not up to our usual standard
