Poorly run pub to say the least. A middle-aged skinny man at the end of bar was so drunk he was disturbing customers but the two barmaids just laughed along with him. Selection of ales has worsened and the interior resembles something from the 1980s, very outdated.
Game soup for starter, roast pork and turkey, roast potatoes, mash, carrots, sprouts, apple and cranberry sauce followed by choice of Christmas pudding, trifle or apple crumble then a cheese board selection with crackers. And all finished off with a warm mince pie and cup of coffee, all for under £12... very full now.
Visited this pub at least once a month over the past six months. The pub is almost spot on but always disappoints on some point of service. We ate the mains and were then just left with the plates and after half an hour weren't asked if we wanted a sweet or a coffee. We mentioned this when paying and were told we should have gained the staff's attention. At the time three tables were occupied.
On another visit we ordered a dry white wine and were given a medium sweet. We complained and were told it was dry, as they only served one dry wine. We weren't offered a look at the bottle and were offered a splash of soda water to take away the sweetness.
The staff are always friendly, especially the weekday staff. We don't think we will use this pub again but I don't think the young staff will be bothered.
Reading the other reviews made us sceptical but we resolved to follow the, possibly biased, idea from Beth Griffiths, which was, try it and make our own minds up.
So glad we did, we were welcomed at the door and even though we had not booked, we were found a table and treated with the utmost courtesy and consideration. The food was beautifully cooked and the service was impeccable. We were so pleased, we booked a future family party.
Went to the Roebuck Tavern the other day. We have been going for many years, as it's always been a very warm, relaxed atmosphere and the staff and management has always been very welcoming and the food has always been top notch.
But this time we where very disappointed with everything that we experienced. The service was terrible, the food was very bland, and took nearly three quarters of an hour to reach our table. That only gave us 15 minutes to eat it, as we only get an hour for our lunch break. And the new barmaid was just constantly on her phone and laptop behind the bar.
I've recently discovered that there's new management taken over and it certainly shows for the worse. Think its time to find a new local.
Just seen the review below and thought I'd add my two penneth! I have been visiting the New Inn recently after Richard and Andrea took over. The atmosphere seems really good, there are loads of drinks on offer and the pub has been massively re-vamped.
I went there on bonfire night and had a really great evening. I've also eaten there a couple of times and the food has been brilliant every time.
Overall, couldn't wish for a better pub - it's quite big too.
Well what can I say? Fantastic! Such a nice place now it has been taken over by a new landlord and lady. I went in on Friday with a few old school friends and had an amazing night. There were so many different drinks available and the food was like being in a top restaurant. And after we had eaten at 8:30PM the DJ started. What a fantastic night.
I had such a good night I went back on Sunday for my Sunday dinner with my family. And I have to say it was the best I had ever had. So relaxed, just perfect.
