Ate again in here tonight, have to contradict a few reviews, food and service fab! I must add tho, this maybe due to new management over the last few weeks!

I went to this pub for a Christmas meal on sat 21st December and it was disgusting. I was part of a group 11 of us. The meal was pre ordered I had a very under ripe melon to start with that had been scored but not cut! The knife on the table was not sharp enough to cut into it so asked for sharper knife my son could not cut into his at all so ordered another starter of prawn cocktail. I had very dry over cooked salmon for my main with over cooked vegetables and a thick custard consistency sauce that had no flavour! It was in edible!! My son & partner had the traditional roast turkey dinner with over cooked vegetables too!! So traditional there were no sprouts or pigs in blankets. It was just an over priced roast dinner that they charge £8.99 for on a Sunday but as it was a Christmas special the meal was £14.99 each. This included a glass of wine or in my 27 year old sons case half a glass!! I had to ask for this to be topped up! The deserts were all sugar loaded (I am diabetic) so asked for cheese & biscuits which were served. No reduction was made for my meal, I work for one of the biggest employers in the area & have told all my friends & colleagues about this awful meal.

Two of us visited this place on Holiday Monday. Only one other person in there. The place is completely smothered with Chelsea regalia. They only had Harvey's best on. This place seems to be a lager pub as the ale was awful. We left it on the bar and walked away. If Harvey's wish to keep a good reputation for their ale then they should not let this place sell it.

You may totally disagree with my last post if you like. The welcome stranger was a place I always stayed at when I visited the area for the past 15 years and it was always fine. You also may not believe for one minute that they didn't help me with the issues that happened during our stay, but they didn't.

The fact is your experience was very different to mine and everything I said was true, I have a right to tell the truth. Yes they turned up the heating and left blankets and they tried to sort things out but they failed miserably after telling them several times they did leave us cold. There was no apology, no offer of compensation or refund, it is just not good enough. I think the family who run the place are nice people but it is a business that they run and I paid good money and I expected to feel comfortable staying there.

'if you didn't like your stay there then you know what to do'

I do know what to do, I complained, nothing was done about it, so hence I wrote a review to warn others. I will make sure I don't stay there again, a travel lodge or premier inn is at least warm and competitively priced.
