Visited one Sunday in March 2013.Party of Six.
Lovely interior, but they could have switched the heating up.!
Food - Ordered mainly Sunday roasts which were OK.Nice rosemary taste to the lamb and garlic on roast potatoes. Good to have properly cooked veg although a little light for six people.
A couple of the meals could have been a bit hotter, but not a major problem.
So all in all food OK, but not spectacular.
So lets come to the problem area for me...... customer service, But before I go into that let me say I spent my entire working life in customer service..... it's a big thing for me, so some might think I'm being harsh.
The staff were smart in dress and appearance, but in the hour and a half we were there I don't think we saw a smile. I appreciate they are young and it may be just a job but it was sort of a faceless mediocrity that does nothing for you. Everything is done efficiently, but there is no warmth. For us, going out should be an experience and in driving away we all agreed it was
I am of the generation that expects to be said "Hello" "Thank You "and "Goodbye" to. Sadly lacking I'm afraid.
Summed up as we left, when the waitress who served us ignored us......!
For the money we paid we probably felt it wasn't quite up the mark, but then again there aren't many pubs locally that are.
I certainly wouldn't recommend either way.
