“The couple are friendly and welcoming. The pub is...”

Written on: 19/04/2010

The couple are friendly and welcoming. The pub is lovely inside and has a roaring fire and comfy seating. The only problem is the food. Tiny portions - the smoked trout starter was minute and not good value at £3.95. The main courses came with a tiny amount of chips and they were the 'leftovers' in the bottom of the bag ( frozen) little bits of chip.the cheese board ( 4.95) had four crackers, 8 grapes, a small piece of smoked cheese,brie and stilton. No side plates, no cheddar or similar hard cheese , the cottage pie had hardly any potato on top.The veg was frozen and uninspiring - mashed carrot ( a spoonful) and peas ( a spoonful ). I am sure that it is only inexperience but getting a proper chef and portions right would make the pub perfect.
