A friend and I visited this pub in early April on the off chance as we were passing by. The décor of the Inn is lovely and you’ll find the surroundings well kept and in keeping with the period atmosphere. The building itself is old and full of character, much like the street on which it’s located.
Regarding our visit ….this could have just been an off day, but the experience overall was, for us, quite slow and a little lacking in value for money.
We were one of only three couples in the entire pub – it was a quiet night- but despite this, after waiting for no less than 15 minutes after being seated I had to vacate my seat and approach the waiter to ask for our food order to be taken, I had to do the same when asking for the bill as well, which I found rather unnecessary considering the lack of customers present and the price we were going to pay.
The prices here are not the cheapest – which is fine, but the portion sizes we received and the lack of accompaniments certainly made our visit feel rather over priced for what we got. I ordered Sausages and Mash and received what can only be described as a spoonful of gravy and a less than conservative portion of potato. The meal was dry and very unfulfilling as a consequence. My friend ordered Braised Pork, which was well cooked and beautifully presented but came with no gravy at all and no accompanying vegetables apart from a small pile of red cabbage. Again a very small meal.
There were no additional vegetables to accompany the meals that we ordered, and the food we did get served was very small in portion size, so we left feeling hungry and over charged. This combined with the slow service made me feel rather disappointed. We paid the best part of £40 for two mains, one soft drink and one pint of Real Ale, which is not an insignificant bill to foot. But we did not get fantastic value for it.
As I said, this could have been an off day but nevertheless I am hesitant about returning without winning the lottery and having a very casual attitude to perceived meal sizes.
