It is some years since I visited the Sportsman (my loss). Dropped in today with my granddaughter for some lunch. What a treat! A friendly, warm welcome when we arrived; a good and varied choice of meals on the blackboard.
We both opted for the steak and scampi at £10.50, one medium-rare and one well-done. They came cooked exactly as they had been ordered, with chips, peas, mushrooms and 8 pieces of very decent scampi. A bowl of onion rings on the side to share were perfect (real onion rings).
With a glass of water and a lime and lemon the grand total was £21.50, an absolute bargain.
I would recommend the Angel. It's a really friendly pub, really busy, great atmosphere. Me and my husband pop in for a couple of drinks. Only been going in for a couple of months and we are always made welcome. The young lady behind the bar is really nice and polite. What makes this pub it's down-to-earth and you are genuinely made welcome.
Went to the Norfolk Arms for Christmas dinner, wonderful. There were 7 of us and the service was exceptional. So a big thank you to all the catering staff, and a big thank you to all front of house staff. We had a wonderful day and a beautiful dinner,
My partner and I took his son for tea today and it was shocking. They had an all day breakfast that was under-cooked, bacon that was very fatty, the tomato was burnt, it was like it had been sat there all day. I had loaded chicken strips that had half the ingredients missing so I sent it back for it to come back. The chicken was reheated. It was terrible. The staff must have known I was not happy, as they never cleared the table afterwards.
Then the kitchen shut at 6PM when it should have been later, and staff put a sign up at 6:40PM saying that the kitchen was shut a bit late.
And to top it off the ladies' toilets were minging. The sinks had not been cleaned and the hot water taps did not work.
I would not recommend that place to anyone. Terrible!
