Visited The Otter last night with my wife as we had the chance of eating out without the kids. Haven't been here for a few years so we were looking forward to a very good meal after reading other reviews.
Well it must have been a very bad off night for them because from start to finish it was not good at all apart from the beer.
For starters we had Chicken Liver Pate, this was very bitter, the bread was warm so that helped dampen the blow because of the flavour of the Pate.
My wife decided to give the Pie & a Pint for a £10 a go. The pie was a Chicken and Vegetable Pie, this was ok but the chips that came with it were very dry and hard to swallow and most were very hard. I decided to go with a simple choice off the Specials Board. Ham, Egg, Chips and Mushrooms, this was priced at £9.95. This was very disappointing. The Ham ( 3 slices ) apparently hand carved was not appealing, it was brown in colour which made me think it wasnt fresh and had been in the fridge for some time, the chips were dry and hard, the mushroom ( 1 ) was very nice and the 2 eggs??????? Well i needed a straw to eat them, they were so slimey that it just made the whole meal a really poor experience. If it wasnt for a good tasting pint of Guiness i would have left.
Would i recommend this pub / restaurant NO.
