This rubbish about this pub smelling is false. It smells like a typical pub, beer and aftershave. The dog that only occasionally comes out is lovely. The landlord is the chef and I have never seen him drink. The food is lovely, and there's always a full plate, and at two for £5 it's a bargain. The lady serving is great also.
We come a few times a week. Come see for yourself and make your own opinion.
The pub has recently changed hands, and as locals we are very happy with the new landlord and staff. We enjoyed a delicious Sunday lunch there in a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere. We usually go in for early bar, but could be tempted to attend the entertainment evenings. We wish them every success in their new venture.
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 Selection of ales has worsened and the interior resembles something from the 1980s, very outdated.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.
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.
