Local character, good "old english pub" looks don't make up for sloppy staffing and extraordinarily slow food. For a quiet Monday evening on October and a table for one I was surprised that after an hour in the pub, and a polite word with the lady behind the bar, that I was then informed that the chef wad on his first night and thing were a bit slow. Seafood spahetti ... I think the pasta had been sitting in a pan for half an hour, and was more like mush that comes from a tin. In actual fact the seafood was very fresh, but the combination was so disappointing after a 70 minute wait that I can't recommend it at all. Probably fine on a summer afternoon when you're happy to have some beers in the garden, not on a quiet evening in October, and certainly not if you want your food to arrive within the hour. Front of house did nothing except blame the chef. It's a shame that on such an important night for the new chef they did nothing to help or cope with the delays. The chef's food is fine and with a bit more support could be very good. Shame the staff don't care either way.
