could not fault the rooms and cleanliness of whole pub, the cleaner was lovelly. Clean crisp modern bedding and compfy beds, large character bedrooms, and so very warm.. So looking forward to evening meal in their restaurant. |Had to sit in quaint booth for meal as darts match in restaurant, adequate for drinks but not for meal, plates could not fit on. Meals we so sad, that is the word, "Sad" starter on freezing cold plate, our mushrooms on Brioche, just about warm, no garnish, Mums Prawn Cocktail, well didn,t know you could get prawns so small and curled up white bread/butter. Mains, to be fair sister said her steak was tasty, but it did look so sad again and pale, warm chips and one miniscule mushroom on one miniscule tomatoe for garnish, again almost cold plate. Mums Lasagne, which she usually loves was warm and pasta not cooked through, accompanied by very limp lettuce and garlic roll you could snap. My curry was adequate, but obviously not freshley cooked, rice pile was difficult to break open Oh and Nnaan brunt one side and soggy other. We decided not to have desert. On their lovelly Web site the menue offerred was nothing at all like ours. The advertisement they proudly show on their Bar is a world apart from our sad choice.The management personell I paid and advised of our previous nights complaint was totally un-interested in my comments, saying that the owner/manager was very interested and I do believe saddened by our comments and took it all on board. He seemed a very reasonable man and I do hope he acts on our issues. The pub is so lovelly it would be a shame to fail because of the restaurant.
