We purchased three meals: 2 roast pork lunches and one beef lunch. I had the beef, which came with a steak knife on my plate! Why I asked myself... once I tried to cut my meat I realised... wow tough as old boots! The veg was tasteless. We got two roast potatoes and a thimble of gravy. Rubbish quality and rubbish value.
My wife had pork, which comes with a free 1-inch edge of white flobby fat... yuk!
I called in to this pub one afternoon. I was the only person in the meals section. After standing at the bar where you order meals for 7 minutes I asked the barman if anyone was taking orders. He replied "I suppose so". After waiting a further 4 minutes I asked him if he could recommend a pub nearby that had better service, meals and treat customers better. He gave me directions to another pub.
He was spot on. Had a great meal and great service at the Mossbrook just down the road.
Visited the pub last night as the designated driver. Asked for a pint of shandy. I watched in disbelief as the bar person filled a pint glass 75% full of lemonade and then had the cheek to top it up with approximately 20% of beer. Is this the modern day equivalent of watering the beer down to make it go further?
No wonder the pub was empty at 9:30PM. If they are doing this with a shandy what are doing with the rest of the beer?
When I used to work behind the bar a pint of shandy was 50/50 and still tasted like a pint of beer, not a pint of p***.
