i work away mon-sat living in hotels, b&bs ect. What I look for is a home from home environment with good standards.
I found the green pea though trip advisor and then went looking for my evening meal. The green pea is run out of hardys pub a sort of side add on so is easy to miss.
the hospitality is warm welcoming and reminds you of a classic style pub. theres a piano in the corner for people to play. (on tues it was very entertaining) plenty of chess and other old school pub games... no darts or pool here.
the layout is a mishmash of armchairs and small tables packed tight but some how doesnt feel overcrowded.
the food is cooked to order fresh and tastes divine. a twist on good home cooking with the bar set a little higher. the pies are in my opinion one of the best I've ever tasted ( and ive had a few in my time).
The price is more than reasonable. ... in fact I would go as to say the owner (tom) is under charging customers. at the time of writing this a pie with veg and potatoes was £8.50.
the portion sizes are epic. the plates are large rectangular and the pie size fills a quarter of the plate. you are always ask if you have enough veg and chip by the staff or owner, which sadly is an old dying custom in modern pubs.
if your looking for a good well cooked meal with out any of the microwave dings. this is the place. This is unfortunately the type of pub that is dying out due to fast food pubs. I would gladly recommend this to anyone I meet.
