Our family of four met up with friends at this pub for lunch on a quiet week day over Easter - the first time we had been there. The children all ordered a basic pasta dish with a cheese sauce which they were happy with and the men ordered egg and chips / club sandwich - pretty basic fare really, not cheap but fine. The two ladies struggled to find anything a bit lighter on the menu so ended up ordering a starter each with a bowl of chips to share (crab cakes / saffron and leek tart). Both meals arrived virtually cold. My tart was something to behold, and so bad I am compelled to write this review (having never before written a review on Trip Advisor). It was a sweet pastry base (which I am sure came out of a packet) filled with a yellow runny sauce mixed with bits of leek. More of the yellow goo was dolloped on top - maybe so you couldn't see what was underneath. Isn't a tart supposed to be at least a little bit set? It tasted like it looked - like a sauce that had come out of a bottle, mixed with a few cooked leeks. It was truly awful. I The manager did take it off our bill, but I am amazed that a pub can serve food of that quality, especially at these prices, and think they will get away with it. If this pub wasn't located in a pretty tourist village I am sure it would not survive! Having said all that, if you just want egg and chips and are prepared to pay over the nose for it - this is your place.
