Awful food awful service
The menu promised so much but simply failed to deliver. Frozen nastiness not home cooked as advertised. Unattentive and rude staff. Save your money and go elsewhere.
excellent pub food
visited on Saturday 24/2/12, 2nd time we have been here, you probably need to book in advance as its always very busy.
this is now our favourite pub eatery,Looking at other tables there fish n chips is huge,also popular was a very good looking mixed grill(16.95).
for our meal we went for 2 x broccoli/stilton soup,home made walnut bread(£3.95 each),very tasty.
for main 2 x sirloin steaks,Jacket Potato with good mixed veg(£16.95) one being cooked "blue" that was hot inside!! 1 x chicken/ham/garlic with JKT POT and salad, 1 x minted Lamb/veg meat pie/ mash/salad(both from special board)very good quantity, the pie wasnt overpowered by mint(my preferance)we followed up with 2 deserts 1 x 3 scoops ice cream with sauce(£4.95) 1 x lemon roulade/1 scoop ice cream(£4.95), would have to say the roulade needed a bit more lemon flavour, overall with a bottle of rose wine 3 x beers cost without service £106-00.special praise for our waitress CHARLOTTE who was very attentive. we will return soon, there special board looks interesting.
The service in this pub is terrible, and the food leaves a lot to be desired..... our orders all came out wrong and the quality of the food was awful!! And when trying to make a complaint about the food we were told that nothing could be done! BAD FOOD, TERRIBLE SERVICE!! do not go there.
A lovely spring lunch
Stopped off for a Saturday lunch on a lovely spring day with the family.Food was very good overall. Cromer Crab meal was heavenly and the home-made Steak Pie was generous and very tasty. Couldn't fault food. Generally good value for money lunches. Toilets do need some more TLC. Service was polite but hospitality could be marketed a bit more. Have lunched here a couple of times over the last year and will continue to do so.
OFFENSIVE LANDLORD AND DIRE SERVICE
DREADFUL PUB! Arrogant and rude landlord AND landlady. I was even reprimanded for ringing ahead and apologising that 1 of the guests was ill so we were a table of 3 not 5 now?! Can't tell you how disappointed I was when we got there then as took my elderly parents there for lunch yesterday (Sunday) and waited over an hour before we even got served! The food then arrived about a further hour afterwards. Chips were so overcooked I sent them back. Next plate arrived undercooked. I left them. Service terrible and will NEVER return. Lady at bar was complaining about the service too when I went to pay (I'd given up waiting for a waiter to bring me the bill). When I told the landlord how disappointed I was, he implied I was lying about the wait I'd had as he showed me the time on the receipt when we ordered our food! I CORRECTED HIM AND TOLD HIM THAT WAS WHEN WE ARRIVED AND ORDERED OUR FIRST DRINKS!! How dare he!! No apology. I hope you lose your license and you are closed down !!!
