“Food excellent ..could have been more for the money ... drinks quite pricey”
Now let me first say that the food tasted VERY good (we chose the sea bass and the lamb). The Starter (duck terrine) was served in a small tea cup with two small slices or French bread... but it appeared to be served on a glass chopping board rather than a plate ! The lamb was cooked to perfection ... but this dish could have done with a scoop full of mashed potatoes to accompany the small (but extremely HOT) shepherd’s pie. The sea bass was well presented, but was a very small portion (could have done with twice the amount). The drinks - well the beer was £3.40 per pint and the coke ... was £3.40 a pint!! I would really have expected more for my money - total cost was almost £40 for 1 x starter, 2 x main course and 2 x drinks.
Staff = very pleasant and friendly 9/10.
Quality of food = very good 9/10
Quantity of food = could have done with a little more = 7/10
Likelihood that I will return: 3/10 (Too pricey for what you get – especially the soft drinks)

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our pub.
We pay close attention to these reviews and we take every opinion into account and, where possible, make changes to improve our service and customer experience.
We work on the mindset that customers should always feel comfortable asking for, within reason, extra portions of sides, whether it be vegetables, or in your case, some mash, for which we do not charge (depending on the amount asked for of course).
We are very to happy to accommodate this and I wish you had asked for the mash, which we would happily have done for you, rather than you leaving and feeling a little hard done by.
With regards to our ales and lagers, they range in price from £3 - £3.50 a pint, but a pint of coke is £3. I'm not sure why you have been charged £3.40 for this and I do apologise for that.
I hope with this response we can increase the rating of your likelihood of return to at least a 7/10!
