“Poor service, Sold out of most drinks and food!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

We have been to The Crabtree on several occasions recently and have not have one visit where we have not been disappointed. If you are only going for a quick drink you will probably be okay. However on the first occasion we went on they were sold out of all types of beef.. no burgers, steaks or mixed grills, this was on a Saturday evening 6ish! and considering the majority of their menu is beef its shocking! the second occasion they were sold out of fosters and all liquors! and the third time I waited over twenty minutes to order my drink at the bar!! When my girlfriend went into the ladies toilets half of the lights were not working. Its a shame because its our local pub/ restaurant but we wouldn't recommend it.
