well like I said in my title it was a very bad experience, the owner/ landlord was very rude to his customers and even his staffs. the barmaid seemed lazy and not very friendly. the chef seemed ok when he came out and the waitress was very polite. the food was ok but we have had better. the pub seemed to have gone to the dogs it was scruffy and filthy and had a bad smell, it also looked as though it hadn't been cleaned or hoovered in weeks, it didnt help that the owners dog was wandering around the pub when people were eating and it was sat at the bar. the walkway to the ladies toilets and beer garden and the walkway into the bar was full of big thick horrible cobwebs, so if this was the state of downstairs we dread to think what it would be like up stairs in the hotel part. we was very wary to even eat here especially as our two children were with us, because of the attitude of the barmaid and the owner and the disastrous state of the pub.
