Not a bad pint and my partner had the Ploughmans which at £7.50 for a bit of bread and cheese with a pickled egg and a salad garnish, was merely overpriced. My so called "fish curry" was the most revolting thing I have ever been served anywhere. No sign of a curry sauce. It was a greyish-black pile of indistinguishable bits which turned out to be left over vegetables including carrots and potatoes or turnip (which had probably been left because they weren't cooked even to the point where you could push a fork into them). This mess wass swimming in grease to which a half a teaspon of curry powder had been added along with some rubbery aubergine and a half a tin of bullet hard peas. Also added to this were five small (teaspoon sized) pieces of fish. It was served with microwaved or boil in the bag rice - so bland that you might as well eat cotton wool, a soggy opadom and a small bowl which claimed to be "chutney" but tasted more like a tinned apple pie filling. NEVER EAT HERE if you value your life or your wallet. This disgusting mess cost me £8.50 and when I complained all I got was a pathetic "sorry" from the waitress - no offer of an alternative or a refund. The food is [--].
