We visit as a party of 8 + a 2 year old child
On arrival it was obvious there wasn't enough room for us all to sit together, so we crammed onto 3 tables.
Ordering the food was find, some of the staff need to find their manners and maybe a smile or two won't hurt.
Then we move on to the disaster which was the service once the food started to arrive. There was no clean cutlery for us to use. The first steak was burnt to a crisp. The food arrived in dribs and drabs with some meals turning up wrong and the kitchen was running out of ingredients. Poorly managed, poor service & poor food quality
Shall not be returning.

Live close to pub so have visited often but just lately quality of food and service has become awful. Ordered beer battered fish and chips and after waiting 25 mins it comes out burnt. When I said to waitress it's burnt she passed me one that she had just tried to serve to another table but it was wrong order for them. This fish was also burnt but as I had to be home for my children I had ok choice but to try and pick the fish out the burnt batter. Really really unhappy

Popped in to have a meal after a lovely weekend away - only to be served a burnt curry. After complaining about it, the meal was taken away and returned with chicken having been taken out of the burnt dish into a clean dish with the same curry minus the black bits. The chicken was dry hard. Talk about cheap and nasty ! - This pub has really gone from bad to worse in the last year ..

Arrived approx. 2pm. 7 adults 2 children we cleared plates from previous dinners in order to join two tables enabling us to sit together. having decided what we each wanted orders were place at the till and we were informed there would be a 40 minute wait as they were catering for birthday party .Drinks collected. We waited over 1 hour and enquired when our food would be served. It started to arrive in bits and pieces. I had ordered fish and chips from £6 menu it was served after I reminded them I was still waiting. Unfortunately it was not acceptable. I spoke to the manager. He was very keen to point out we had been told there would be a 40 minute wait .personally I arrive for a meal hungry and do no want to wait 70 minutes to be served. Surely if you have advanced booking for a party you manage your staff to cover all services. The manager refunded £6 for fish and chips. And vouchers to the value of £14.
