I like this pub as the staff are super nice. Got a cheeseburger today and the smallest bit of lettuce was used in the bun which was pointless putting it on the roll, as I couldn't taste it. The burger relish was scraped on which...didn't cover the base of the bun so couldn't taste that at all either. The burger was ok but would have been super better if it had come the way the menu indicated. Also, I asked for no onion please on the burger and it came with extra onion. Makes no sense. My friends lasagna arrived luke warm but she didn't want to send it back so as not to cause a fuss. The rest of the food was ok though.More

My family have been to the restaurant many times through the day for lunches and wit was great, so we planned to go to this restaurant for our Christmas dinner as the food and staff have always been lovely but Christmas Day was one of...the worst meals me and my family have ever had! So our sit in was at 2 and they announced that the starters would be coming out in 20 minutes which was fine 45 minutes after that announcement our starter showed up and they were wrong as they tried giving me and my sister and my mums partner prawns and salmon and I do not eat fish none of our family does so the owner comes over to the table and starts arguing with us I said look just put it down we just won’t eat it so we didn’t, then an hour and 20 minutes later our main course came and by this point we are starving as we haven’t eat yet, they put the main down a normal turkey dinner but the veg was hard and the mash was cold stuffing was like a brick we all couldn’t eat it the only thing we ate off that plate was the 2 slices of turkey and 1 pigin blanket that was on our plate I wasn’t happy so spoke to one of the girls serving and she said I am so sorry I will have a word with the owner and come back, after I complained the owner did no show any interest that we were unhappy and didn’t come over to our table to even apologise for this. They took our main course away and we were waiting on our sweets 1 hour into waiting I had had enough I was so hungry that I said to the bar staff to cancel our sweets and could I have the bill, the bill came and he had tooken money off for our sweets but nothing else our bill for food only was over £200 I didn’t think it was fair for us to pay that amount of money for food that we didn’t get or didn’t eat so I went up to the owner and said look I am sorry but I am not paying all this as we didn’t eat hardly anything and I wasn’t happy with the service for our Christmas dinner he then shouted at me infront of all the other guest saying “well yous are the only tables that have complained out of 54” I clam said back to him “I am not here for everyone else’s meal I am here to enjoy Christmas dinner with my family and I didn’t enjoy one thing about our dinner and I tried to complain and you wouldn’t come over” he continued to shout and make a fuss about it it was really embarrassing it has put me off going back into this restaurant as the staff are lovely but the owner is a rude, arrogant and aggressive man that was really unprofessional as I was a well paying customer I shouldn’t have been spoken to in that manner.More
