Poor service, wrong meals brought, inadequately trained staff, little supervision, two of our meals came after the other two were eaten, to top it all they then gave us an incorrect bill! We went with high expectations and were thoroughly disappointed! We will not return!

We were taken here by friends who raved about the food. Being over an hours drive away I was expecting something a bit more than just a pub. The restaurant part was a little cramped and noisy, just like any other country pub. The menu...More
