“Most disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

We should have read the reviews before choosing this place for lunch. "Robbing Hood" instead of "Robinhood" was the name given by one Tripadvisor member, I can only agree with him/her. Although very well situated, facing the Green, the dining room itself looks rather shabby. Saying this, the photos on the Website are beautiful, I must say. We were a party of 4, had only one Baked Brie to share as a starter, one main course each, one small glass of wine and a large one, a bottle of mineral water - not a liter - 4 coffees, the bill came to £90; rather steep as one main course was a tasteless burger with boiled carrots, without even the smallest knob of butter, salt or pepper. No potatoes with the main course, except chips; unbelievable but true, which led us to think that the chips were frozen! The starters are from £5.50 for the soup. The Baked Brie was supposed to be served with garlic and thyme, we did not taste either. Altogether, a most disappointing and expensive experience which we will not renew.

“Monday Lunch”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

Had lunch here with a party of 8 friends. Very limited menu. Prices extortionate. Fish was soggy and appeared to have been cooked in the microwave. Chicken undercooked and was sent back three times and refused. Burger -undercooked. Never again.

“Forgot starters, long wait, overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

They atmosphere was nice enough as was service but they completely forgot the starters, mains were small portions and expensive for what they were. Desserts took along time to come. May have just had a bad night but won't be rushing back.
