Arrogant - living off reputation.

My family arrived at 12:10pm on a Bank Holiday Monday - the place was completely empty.
My wife and 2 teenage children entered and looked for a table.."Where are they off too?" was the only comment from the landlord.
I replied to find a table.
"Have you booked?" - No, did I need to today?
"No" he replied.
So, what do I need to do? what's the procedure?
"There isn't one - you just speak to me before you do anything".

Decided this place wasn't getting a penny of my money and we left.

Attrocious attitude to customers - their food must be excellent for people to put up with that!

 

A proper Sunday roast lunch at last!

Visited last weekend after hearing that the previous tenants had gone (good riddance)
Had a traditional Sunday roast which was very good. I had lamb and my partner had the beef, both were delicious. Proper roast potatoes (none of that deep fried cr*p) homemade Yorkshire's and nicely cooked fresh vegetables (not boiled to death)
It was a bit quiet because the owners are just starting to get the place back on it's feet after the previous people who didn't have a clue.
Well worth the drive out and looking forward to returning soon.
Well done to John & Helen, the owners.

 

A great Sunday lunch

Food lovely. Starters could be smaller (& therefore a bit cheaper), because the puddings were highly tempting, but none of us had any room left.

Open fires & armchairs/easy chairs make it snug. Landlord friendly & welcoming. Look forward to another visit.

Superb food and beer but the loud, thoroughly unpleasant, dated music was the worst imaginable. Worse than supermarkets or hotel lifts. I would have loved to stay for a sweet and another pint but my ears would have tried to shut off the blood flow to my brain. If you are under eighty you probably won't like it.
