Built in the 17th century, the Robin Hood Inn has been providing excellent pub, restaurant and B&B services to customers for a number of years.
Took my family for a meal here over the Christmas period, 6 adults and 1 toddler. The food was fantastic, and the menu it accommodated for all tastes, as two of the family are vegetarian.
I highly recommend this pub. Also the prices in my opinion are spot on. And the service was also great.
Been a regular customer to have food here and always great until today. We booked a table but were not on their list. Had to wait 30 minutes before we were sat down. No apology. Ordered food. Took 30 minutes and all the meals had dry, burnt chips. Dry chicken and dry lasagne. All overcooked. Really disappointed.
Just had kebabs, salad, rice and yoghurt and was very disappointed. The chicken was fatty and when we left it and were asked how it was, we explained about chicken. We were told we should have said something earlier. So why ask?
We have been here numerous times and food has been excellent. Shame that first time it isn't we are ignored and not even got an apology.
We are off now to purchase a pudding elsewhere. Not giving them another penny!
Just called for a drink Monday evening, which we got after a lengthy wait. At one point there were five of us at the bar waiting, only one bar staff on, and while she changed a barrel, another two customers arrived. Service was poor for a pub of this size, especially as there were a lot of eating customers. Not sure about going again.
I held my retirement party in the Robin Hood last night, 17th February, and booked the conservatory from 6PM, as I was expecting a number of people to attend and order food.
The staff were excellent and coped with the rush of my friends arriving and ordering meals. The food was hot, well-presented, tasty, and empty plates were cleared from the tables quickly. The pub has a very good range of real ale that was fully appreciated by all.
It was a very enjoyable evening. The food and the beers were very good, the service could not have been better.
I would recommend the Robin Hood to anyone organizing a function or just wanting a nice meal that's good value with good ale.
Absolutely shocking service. Booked a table for Sunday lunch four days prior to our visit. When our party of six arrived they said there was no booking. They made no attempt to apologise or seat us elsewhere, they just gave us some menus to look at as we were sat in the bar.
Food took ages to come out and when it did, whilst it was hot the quality was poor. My mother asked to speak to the landlord and the waitress said he would come over to see us. He never showed. Pathetic.
Heard good things about this place but we thought it was shocking. Wouldn't go back, rather have a microwave meal.
As this pub had been awarded "Pub of the Year" award by Rotherham Council we thought we would give it a try. Big mistake. If this is the best I should hate to see the worst.
When you walk in and look around you can see that it needs a good clean. I ordered a mixed grill, yes there was plenty but tasteless. The meat tasted sour. Chips cooked in old oil. My wife had fish and chips that was the same, tasteless.
Not recommended. Find somewhere else.
Fantastic pub, fantastic grub.
Drank, ate and spent the night in their accommodation. We found the whole experience generally good. The selection of ales was splendid, the "ribeye" steaks were done just how we liked them and the meals were delivered promptly and hot. The bar area was busy but you were not kept waiting to get served.
The accommodation is clean but somewhat Spartan (no hanging space, and no shelf in the bathroom).
We thought £40 per night per person was a little dear, as no breakfast is included.
We will use the Robin Hood again.
Went as a party of 6 and not one of us enjoyed the meal. Greasy overcooked chicken, overcooked microwaved jacket potatoes, the mushy peas were the darkest green I had ever seen and the chips were terrible. Will not be returning.
Thursday quiz night is great with free food and a jovial, welcoming atmosphere.
However, with a group of friends, we decided to go there for the Christmas Dinner menu and it was one of the direst eating experiences I have ever had.
We were squashed awkwardly around one rectangular table with a tiny round one adjoining at the end. Portions were small and generally overcooked, arriving at odd intervals so that some people had almost finished their course before others had received theirs. The baked potatoes were grey inside. The Christmas pudding was about 2cm in diameter and 1cm high. People who chose the cheese course were unable to eat it. The paltry selection of 3 cheeses seemed to have been left out for hours and was sweating.
When we came to pay they had no record of the £30 deposit we had prepaid towards the meal making for an awkward end to the evening.
I have such bad vibes about the Robin Hood that I'm not sure I want to attend the quiz nights anymore.
