We popped into Bedale off the A1 on a long journey north hoping for a lovely Yorkshire Dales pub lunch, parked up and spotted the Waggon and Horses and in this case, beware, appearances are very deceptive. Presents well initially with a Black Sheep served here sign on the windows and door poster; on arrival at the bar, which is festooned with Black Sheep bar mats and a Black Sheep pump, we foolishly asked for a pint and a half of Black Sheep, ..... why wouldn't we? Barmaid says, we don't serve Black Sheep, the landlord wont keep it, the locals don't like it! Take the signs down then i cry inside, but as we are hungry and of Polite British origin, we stay and order the Haddock and chips for lunch and a pint of Theakstons and a diet coke. Both were flat. To be fair, the barmaid did warn us that the fish would be a frozen piece, but i had expected fresh batter on a piece of frozen fillet; unfortunately it was an awful, pre-battered frozen abomination. To add insult to injury it had eyes and a tail printed on the frozen batter. Add a few under-cooked frozen chips and peas and salad, and hey-ho, you have probably the worst meal I have been served in a long time. We left Bedale disappointed and hungry, ..... should have read TA first.
