Was shown this pub a few years ago and often visit for the best carvery I have ever had. We have never had cause for complaint and the staff are very helpful. They try to get you a table as soon as they can if busy. You are never rushed even when people are waiting to be seated.
There is always a lot of meat carved onto your plate and you can keep returning for veg etc... if you want to.
I have always lived in the Millhouses, Dore area and was sad to see the Millhouses pub shut. Recently when it reopened, and we had seen a good review in the local press, decided to try it out.
Yesterday after a long day out we decided to call for a quick meal. We had not booked, that was not a problem, it was before 6PM and a few people were in having drinks. We admired the new tasteful surroundings and were looking forward to our meal.
We chose ordinary food as we were due to go out again at night. My meal, of haddock, chips and mushy peas (£11.95) was thoroughly disappointing. The small fish portion size was more what I would expect from a starter course, and the plentiful chips seemed that they had been cooked previously and reheated in a deep fat fryer as they were oozing in fat. The mushy peas were cold.
My husband's burger (£10.95) was fine and his larger chips were fresh, though few in number.
After a while we were able to attract the waitress' attention and she said that she was going to come to ask if everything was OK. She did reheat the peas. We were very hungry as we had not had anything all day and did eat the food.
After paying for the bill, £27 including drinks, we left without anyone asking if we had enjoyed our food.
