We were looking for British pub with rooms and good food, near Hungerford, as an overnight stop on the Bristol to London bike route.Imagined a country pub, good beers, great atmosphere, cracking food. Positives were staff extremely helpful, draught beers good, pleasant location. Downside is they need a chef, not a middle of the road cook.
£7.99 for the Scallop starter is pricey, but to receive only 3 overcooked scallops in a forgettable sauce was over the top.
The choice of organic steaks sounded wonderful, rump,ribeye, fillet and sirloin, had us guessing which to go for. All four of made our choices, only to be told that there were only two steaks left, and they were sirloin. They must be joking! 8pm on a Sat night, with only 2 other tables occupied!
Breakfast--no fruit, cooked breakfast only could be described as OK!
This place is struggling big style, which is a shame when the staff are trying so hard to please, but without a proper chef it will bite the dust---no more than 6 people at the bar all night; that being a Sat night!
The bill was a non itemised till roll, had two items of £12.95 that could not be reconciled, so were removed!
