We were looking forward to a lovely relaxing meal out, and we had been recommended this pub by a friend who claimed to have had 'the best steak ever'. And as me and my partner are both great fans of a good steak we thought we'd give it a go. However we were very disappointed.
Bearing in mind the steak was costing us £15.95 each!!!
The pub itself is lovely, and when the food was brought out it looked delicious, however as I began to eat my steak, firstly I asked for it to be cooked medium, yet it was well done. It was chewy, grisly, had no taste to it and very over cooked. I did complain, and yes I was brought another steak, which appeared to be a completely different cut of meat, and was pretty much perfect.
By this time though my partner had finished his meal, and he was also very disappointed with his steak, however he did not like to complain again, although it was well over cooked and he asked for it rare!
The waitress had also asked us if we would like another drink, and we both accepted however when the other waitress brought them over, she took our current glasses which still had a couple of mouthfuls left without asking whether we had finished.
The staff were very nice to begin with about the situation and when my partner asked if it was possible to have free desserts they happily agreed, however when I went to pay the bill I was gob smacked to find they had only given me one dessert free after saying we could have both. Now I was paying the bill it came across that the waitress did not care about our experience and was now not apologetic.
It had ruined our evening not only having awful meals but at different times and to have to pay £50, I will not be returning and I will be advising our friends to stay away too. We have had a better steak at weather spoons!!
