Arrived early but all tables reserved for a group arriving at 2 pm
Got last table and ordered lunch
Friendly owner well I think he owns the place
Had the beef and pork
Well they were not ROASTS
No crackling on the pork
And my beef was like re heated roast from the day before
My roast potatoes were burned black on the bottom
I carefully cut it off and left so Owner could see when clearing my plate
The Yorkshire pudding was also burnt and I left it on the side as well
But they choose not to mention it
Yes I'm the customer who never complained and I'm also the one who won't be back

Visited the Crows Nest early for Sunday lunch but it was so busy we could not get a table. We booked and returned later that evening and it seemed we were compensated for not being able to eat earlier by the amount of food served up on our plate. Absolutely fantastic meal and we returned later in the week for an equally superb meal. Small pub so book early but would highly recommend.
Very friendly English hosts.

Yet again had a fantastic pork roast - must try something else sometime! Don't know how I managed to finish it all - glad I had booked as otherwise I would have been disappointed (and missed out on the pork crackling!)
