I would say I ate lunch there yesterday but in actual fact I didn't. I was served raw ham which is a difficult thing to manage in itself. I sent it back and was obviously not taken seriously as I was served it raw again! I asked for my money back.
I have been warned by several colleagues that the food and service is lacking but it wasn't until yesterday I discovered this myself. I was told the manager would email me, he didn't. It's sad because I work right next to the pub and they have a lovely garden, but I won't be going back for food. I have lost confidence in them.
On a positive note, the barmaid was friendly and embarrassed I wasn't happy. The drinks are fine and as mentioned the garden is lovely.
