Real let down, went for a special occasion, admit it was after 2pm so it was a late sunday lunch but we ordered the roast dinner with all the trimmings but were given chicken, vegetables and boiled potatoes (slightly pan fried or barely roasted). What we had expected (and had seen others receive before us, and been told by the waiter were included in the trimmings) was cauliflower cheese, stuffing, roast potatoes and a yorkshire in addition to vegetables we received. When we complained the waiter said 'we've run out, what do you want me to do?'. Not the kind of response you would hope for. He then helpfully brought out the last 3 roast potatoes and one yorkshire pudding that he had left. Between 8 of us it was pointless. When i suggested he could have told us when we ordered that they had run out of these he had little to say and there was no apology. The food we did get was very tasty but as it wasn't what we ordered it was a let down. For desert 2 of us ordered banoffi pie and the bananas tasted of onion, obviously they had been stored near them or cut with the same knife. Again not pleasant. The 12.5% was naturally added to the bill (which seems unfortunately the norm nowadays) but on a bill that cost over 200 I can say the food and service was not worth the price let alone a 12.5% tip in addition to this.

What a shame! The food here is great, and I've been telling friends how good it is. But had a nasty experience last week which has really put me off. Went for dinner and one of our party didn't get the dish he ordered - not really much of a problem as it was still great - but we were really disappointed with the wine. We ordered a bottle of Sancerre, but as they didn't have any the waitress suggested Chablis. Fine, but it came to the table far from chilled - we'd had to ask for an ice bucket previously when we'd ordered a bottle of Prosecco at the bar, so we stuck it in there. But when we ordered a second bottle, the waitress explained that we'd had the last bottle. We'd have preferred to have one wine and stick to it, so we were quite disappointed to switch.

We explained our disappointment, but all the manager saw fit to do was change the charge for the wrong dish we were given to that of the dish that was actually ordered. i.e a 2 off gesture. The bill was around 170.

I don't think the chef deserves for the amazing food to be let down by poor wine service and lack of customer skills from the manager. The manager sent the waitress over with the 2 off gesture rather than come over himself after we'd spoken to him.

A real shame.

I worked in this pub on and off during the 80's. It was a terrific pub then. Landlords name was Jamie Ramselle. Locals were a great bunch. Glad to see it hasn't changed.

My local and fav pub of the moment. Great for a drink with friends but mainly good for a meal. Great original food, great wine at a good price. Friendly atmosphere.
