...therefore you'd expect walkers, dogs, occasional bits of mud etc. As it was we'd been walking much earlier that morning, and our boots had dried out, and there was no extraneous mud on them (it was all in the car!)
A rather peremptory foreign woman indicated that we should sit in what she laughingly called "the lounge", which was the coldest, most miserable and unfriendly part of the pub. When I indicated politely, that I would prefer to sit on the other side of the pub, she looked us both up and down, wrinkled her nose, and said "your boots".
OK, we were wearing walking gear, not high fashion, and I was going to offer to take our (dry) boots off when she said that this "lounge" was where we should sit. It's hard to intimate in writing the dismissive tone, but at that point I looked at my friend and said to the woman "I think we'll go somewhere else, thank you". Seeing money walking out of the door, she started talking, but I was not listening....too late sweetie!
Made to feel welcome. Absolutely not.
I have eaten here several times before, and the food is very good, the waiting staff friendly but the owner? manager? whoever she is, she needs to learn a little bit about customer service.
I won't be going back there in a hurry.
