First time visit in this pub and area. Pub looks impressive from both outside and inside, old charm etc. The ales on tap are impressive and prices I could not believe (under £3). However, the food was very disappointing. We sat downstairs (they have a formal restaurant upstairs) and went to bar to order. I opted for the Haddock and chips at around £11. My wife opted for a Margarita pizza. ( around £9).
Fish and chips - batter on fish very very greasy, chips were of small portion and again very greasy and undercooked .
Margarita pizza - this was a joke. I'm pretty sure they went to Iceland or other supermarket and heated up a frozen pizza...soggy base, no flavor or at least even a fresh tomato or fresh basil on the top of it. It was certainly not your standard 'freshly made' pizza with fresh ingredients and fresh dough. My lesson is to always check the menu if it is 'freshly made' or at least I should of asked the waitress.
The waitress who served us seemed embarrassed after she provided the food, usually most places, the staff come back a while later to say 'How's the food?' but alas no. Even when we were getting ready to leave the waitress ignored us...poor thing she probably had the pizza herself for lunch :)
This place has so much potential if they didnt cut corners on food/fresh ingredients
After we left, we walked past another pub called the 'Farmers'..it was busy and the food looked great...oh well next time!
