I have been going to the Lambs Green for many years. I have seen it in the good times and then stopped going for a bit when it was a complete nightmare and then back again over the last few years. I do feel like it has amazing potential, and I love the fact there is always summer and winter cocktails on the go but I am becoming concerned this pub is going down hill again.
On my last few visits, my boyfriend and I have come across issues, always different ones.
We arrived recently at a prebooked table online, our table had what looked like glasses which had come out of the dishwasher but not actually cleaned, lots of like scum marks, we werent the only ones to complain and admitidlty this was dealt with very quickly, but who would have let these go out in the first place? I ordered the chicken stuffed with cheese and maybe tomotoes, when it arrived the chicken was so overdone I could have broken bricks with it.
On my most recent visit 21 December, again our table was booked. My boyfriend often goes for the mixed grill and each time we ask if the sausage, black pudding and white pudding can be removed in replace of steaks and chicken. We are happy to pay more for this but also aware that they might not do this. One two occasions this was fine to change but on the 21st December, the waitress adivsed that she wold check. Thinking that it wouldnt be a problem, she ended up coming back and said this couldnt happen and that the meats for this dish is already pre-packed and frozen when it comes to the pub!!!!! Im not sure that really thats something you should be telling the customer.
My boyfriend then ordered the steak which was amazing. I ordered the lamb shank pie. The pastry was unedable and when I peeled it off, there was some nice pieces of lamb but the veg, esp carrots was still raw!
I was planning to go there tonight, but to be honest Im not feeling like I will be retunring any time soon. My boyfriend loves it there and whenever we are going out this is the first place he will mention. I think until things change again, we have no choice but to stay away for a bit.
