Decided on the portway for sunday lunch. Very politely shown to our table. Order taken very quickly for roast beef and roast pork ,the beef and yorkshire pudding was fantastic a little more gravy would have been apreciated.The pork left a lot to be desired as it was not roast pork but some sort of pork cutlets/chops that were so over cooked they could,t be chewed,(if they had run out of actual roast pork they should have said and i would have changed the order). 2 big dishes of vegtables were bought out which would have been great except for the red cabbage that had been put in the same dish hence everthing was stained pink and looked very very messy and off putting.Desert was fantastic as was the service by a very polite young waitress. Throughout the whole meal the chef was constently coming out to ask guests was the food ok,maybe its just me but if i am going to give my complements to the chef i would like to do it in my own time after the meal .Compliments are not something you are supposed to ask for .Found that very unpleasant and something i have never had to experience at any other resturant.After the meal we took our drinks outside to the garden .first impressions were of the huge burnt bonfire over the other side (wouldn,t have been difficult to just fence that area surely) detracts your eye away fron the lovely selection of trees the garden has to offer. The grass also needed a little more work as it looked like it had,nt been cut for a for a long while .After our walk around the garden where we also came across an area which was just ciggarette buts not sure what this was butan extremely unpleasant site.Came back to the seating area and decided not to sit down as the the wooden benches were in the worse state of decay i have ever seen in any pub (they were crumbling and rotten).
