We had Sunday lunch at the Island Pool this week, our first visit since the new owners took it over. It was late afternoon and the pub was very busy (as it always seems to be nowadays at weekends), but we managed to get a table.
We both had the carvery, and it was excellent. Hard to believe that they only charge £6.99 (try it before it goes up !). There were 4 meats to choose from, and all of the veg sides were excellent. The quality of the meat on our visit was superb. As a nice little touch, all of the 'end bits' from the meat joints are put into a serving tin for diners to help themselves from. This had some of the tastiest bits of meat in it !!
The roasties were lovely (a fresh tin of them came out just as we were being served, so perfect timing !), as was the mash, and best of all, they served sprouts as a veg side, which is very rare for a carvery.
Overall a superb meal, and as good a carvery as you will find in the Midlands, and all at a bargain price. Highly recommended.......
