We received a warm and friendly welcome on arrival at this traditional pub with comfortable surroundings. There was a good wide menu and although we didn’t want to see the meal deal of two meals for £12 menu we were never shown it.
I had the cumberland sausage served on a large bed of horseradish mash and topped with a mini yorkshire and red onion gravy. I was fully aware that no vegetables accompanied this and could have ordered some separately but at £9-95 for basic pub grub decided not to. The portion of mash was enormous, but without much taste.
My wife had the Homemade Ham Leek Honey & Mustard Pie with a puff pastry top & sweet potato fries. Underneath the puff pastry was a dish full of gravy and only five small pieces of ham and chopped up leak pieces floating inside and once more the cost was £9-95. The fries were skinny style served up in a tiny wire basket and we noticed at the table of the only other diners in the pub restaurant that this is also how they serve their chips, Yuk !!.
I then had the apple & cinnamon pie with custard and a good sized portion was served and was perfect but alas my wife had the chocolate brownie sundae which turned out to be a small grated brownie at the bottom, a little ice cream, half a strawberry and topped with large dollops of cream which as my wife can't eat cream was left and in fairness this was removed from the bill when I paid.
My wife had to grab something to eat when we got back home, so not a good experience for her. Mine was just about ok which is a shame as all of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, but in future don't forget to let the diners know about the two meals for £12 offer as shown on their web site.
