I’m afraid I would have to agree with some of the recent reviews for this pub and it’s not quiet being what it was.
We have been many times before always as a young family and have always felt welcome and have enjoyed ourselves.
But this last time we visited for lunch, with our 3 young children in tow, we did not feel as welcomed as on other occasions. On arrival everything seemed fine and the bar staff were helpful with finding a table. Although, if a little unfriendly and almost a feel you were putting them out.
We had an average lunch, as we expected. Once we had finished our food we chose to stay for another drink. The lunch rush had left and the bar was quiet - we were practically the only ones in there! So we allowed the children to play close to the table. The children were playing nicely, quietly and behaving themselves. Despite this the owner sat at the bar and made it clear he was not welcoming towards them at all. Even asking us to keep them quiet! I really felt this was not appropriate nor welcoming considering the sign outside says it welcomes ‘well behaved children’. Which ours were being.
So, we finished up our drinks and left kind of hopeful for a ‘thanks guys, see you again’ but in actual fact it felt quite frosty. Strange.
It’s a shame when someone else’s actions and attitude ruins your family lunch and makes you sure you won’t visit a place again to be treated in such a way.
Such a shame as the location is great, the decor is lush and the food reasonable for what you expect...but the welcome comity or unwelcome comity, as it were, could really do with some work.
