Admiral Rodney Pub Reviews
Fletcher family - 05/04/2009
Very busy on arrival but we found a table with ease. Lots of staff around but not much seams to be being done, only 2 bar staff serving so I spent the first 15 minutes waiting at the bar.
Food ordered with ease, hot shared platter for starters and 9oz ribeye for main (that's mine) by the way I am writing this at the time we are in the Admiral Rodney. Starters are here and wow - how gutted are we, nowhere near £10.95 worth, and over cooked. Not happy with that but hey - everyone can make a mistake. We'll wait for mains and pass judgment after that.
Not bad, small portions and the children's steak was too over-cooked, but then again my daughter will eat a rare steak with me and most kids are not like that.
Overall OK, could have had better service and the toilets are very smelly.

Best pub we have found since leaving Tasmania! Great food, great site, friendly staff (and very helpful with elderly relative).
Would cross the world to come back here again. Well done all!
We'll spread the word.

I've just been to the Admiral Rodney. The main course was lovely, but to my dismay they have a new menu and the granary apple crumble is no more.
We ordered three pots of tea and only one had a lid - apparently they keep dropping and breaking them! Who wants a cold second cup of tea?

My one and only experience of this pub was a bad one.
Went for a meal with my partner one Friday afternoon and ordered a rare steak. The food arrived and the steak was well done. The only hint of rareness was a bit on the end that probably hung off the end of the griddle. It was totally cooked through. I sent the steak back, and it was returned to me with a message from the chef that it was indeed rare. Whilst the waitress was there I cut into the steak to show her that it was indeed well done. She took it back to the chef who again returned it saying that it was rare! I sent it back and asked to speak to the manager, who wasn't available. My partner at this stage had to send her food back as it was cold, waiting for mine!
Anyway we decided to leave the pub. At no stage did anyone over us compensatory drinks or an apology. We paid for the drinks and the last thing I saw was my steak being thrown at the kitchen door, accompanied by expletives!
It was an utterly disappointing experience and I believe you would receive better food and service from a vending machine.

Good place - can usually get a meal at any time in the day up to about 10 or 11PM.
Well done on the interior - log fires, wooden chairs and tables of all shapes and sizes, and no TV or loud music.
Basically this is how an old-fashioned country pub should be
