user reviews of the Parsons Pig, Worth

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Very disappointed in that twice in a matter of weeks my lunch has taken 45 minutes to prepare. I appreciate that they cook from scratch, but when i turned up at 12.05 to a completely empty pub I would have expected the hardly onerous task of preparing chilli con carne to take less than 45 minutes. Also the bar tables are very sticky, so much so that you have to be careful when lifting your cutlery / arm / phone from the table so that you don't launch it across the bar.

Such a shame as the beer is of decent quality and the location perfect for a lunchtime pint if working in the Gatwick area.

Friendly atmosphere, good food. An enormous Travelodge has been built behind it for anyone fancying a stopover.

I had my wedding breakfast here in september 2008, had a lovely day, food was fantastic, and the staff and steve may everything go without a hitch. they eve closed off the restaurant side of the pub for the day till 5pm for us so we could have an almost private function which was lovely and they did not mind the kids running around when having 2 small children this does help, have had many other dinners there and would recomend anytime thanks to steve and his staff for making mine and my husbands wedding day special

I has been my local for the last 5years. Excellent service and good value pub food.
The landlord and staff are always friendly and polite.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this pub

I wrote the long review about the Parsons Pig listed here. I must report that things have improved considerably, including more sauces, and the ability to ring ahead for lunch, the staff are attentive and the food is good. Well done to the Parsons Pig for turning it around!

The Parsons Pig has a long history with me. I used to play guitar and sing there every Sunday way back in 1990. The pub now bears no real resemblance to that previous place, though, unfortunately.
I work nearby, and once a week go out for lunch. I have no evening meal experience at this pub at all.
Up until a week or so ago my colleagues and I had learned to place our orders over the phone in advance to ensure that we did in fact get to eat, for sometimes, no matter how sparse the clientele, they seemed to have a difficult time getting our meals to us in time. The lunch menu was, however, pretty extensive and the food was reasonably priced.
The service seems to have gone down a bit, very recently, as it is now difficult to get your order in (or in fact to even see anyone working the bar, as I believe the bar staff is multifunctioning) and there is often a queue. There seems to be one person on the bar, one to wait and maybe only one in the kitchen? We went last week and could not see a lunch menu and could not see anyone to take our orders so we left without eating.
Today we gave it another chance and were not able to call in our order as the menu had changed and we wanted to peruse it first.
There seemed to be a few people in the smoking area in front, but only 9 people otherwise, on our side, albeit all at the same table.
After waiting more than 5 minutes to place our order it then took 30 minutes to get our food. The table of nine had all ordered baguettes, which eventually came just before we decided to give up and ask for ours to take away.
We got an apology from the waitress but I half expected them to offer something in return, as this our second disappointment in less than 7 days.
It's a shame because the food is good, in fact the chips are the best I've ever had (unless they are in foil at your desk 10 minutes later). It's a pity about the rest. If only they would hire some help! The comment in the other review about a lack of atmosphere is accurate. We had previously overlooked this on account of proximity to work and the inexpensive but good food.

SloooooooooooW service, young bar staff maybe the cause. A group of us used to go there last year but by the time they had served all the Northern Monkeys waiting to go on holiday it was last orders! Go round the corner to the Greyhound

Food based pub, large eating areas, with an adjoining motel. Beer is ok, not a great deal of atmosphere, but the food is fairly good quality and value. Out of the way, so is going to be a drive for most people.
