My husband and I came to the Red Lion today 03/02/2019 and both ordered beef Sunday dinner. The beef had not been cooked at all and had only been seared. We called the waitress and my husband requested a change, as he cannot eat raw meat and ordered chicken instead. When the meal came it was gammon but my husband ate it. I can eat rare meat but the total rawness had me beaten and was left on my plate.
When clearing up the waitress asked if everything was OK and we told her about the wrong meat, she blamed the kitchen, even though it was her that had taken the order.
We were not even offered a cup of coffee as an apology. Needless to say we will not be returning to the Red Lion.
After popping round for a quick drink on New Year's Day - we bumped into your staff at another local pub - where they were both under the influence of drinks and drugs. We then proceeded to come to the Sportsman pub. Both members of staff were aggressive, rude, and swore at ourselves and other members of the public. Was told to f**k off. Definitely would not return.
People on the next table brought in a dog upstairs. I myself have a dog. Love dogs. Sat it on the chair and put its water bowl on the table for it to drink from. Member of staff knew it was there because she seemed to know the couple. The female staff member whose birthday it was the night before and didn't get in until 2 in the morning, drunk on Prosecco.
We visited the Fox House Inn on 09/12/2018. We booked a table and added we were bringing our dog.
When we arrived we were told there was only 1 dog friendly table, so we put the dog in the van (angry). We were then seated where we could clearly see 2 other diners with dogs, bearing in mind my dog was in the van outside.
We ordered food and as we were waiting for food the manageress who had just told us they only had 1 table showed someone to a table behind us with not 1 but 2 dogs!
The staff are ignorant and have no customer service skills. Avoid this place at all costs. Dog friendly I think not.
Great live music spot for 1950s, 60s and 70s stuff every Friday. Not open during the week. Privately-owned by a landlady who loves live music and a dance! Saturday music is a solo singer, always a good night for those who like to get dressed up. Not on social media or the Internet, so best phone if you want to find out who is playing.
