|i cannot begin to tell you how much of waste of your life it would be to step foot in this place, the food is terrible everytime I have been in the last three years, the carvey is the pits, staff standing around, shouting at each other as they cut your gristle with a little meat, dreid veg, solid gravy, rock hard potatoes if any are actually left, the bar staff have never been trained properly, ale is always cloudy, some goes wrong every time, its the pits i tell you, the pits! |
I've lived in the area for long enought to visit and eat at the place when it opened at a wine bar/fish restuarant, you could even get in with jeans 20 years ago!
dont waste your effort, time, money on what will surely be a complete disappointment

|The ONLY way this plae could be improved is with a wrecking ball. Flattenen it and start again. Still it does keep pond life away from other pubs in the area.|

|The last review being over a year ago, we thought it was worth a visit, I mean, things could only be better, couldn't they? Wrong! Two real ales on offer, London Pride and Courage Special, we opted for the Pride. It was a super sunny September day, not a cloud in the sky.....just in the beer, which tasted foul! This place is now advertised as a carvery, only when we arrived there was a sign on the door saying that due to a failure of a vital piece of equipment the carvery was unavailable. As the only piece of equipment you need to roast meat is an oven and as the rest of the menu was being served we guessed that the vital piece missing was the cooking operative. We settled for a Ploughmans for 2 at £9.50. Most people can picture a Ploughmans, a wedge of Cheddar, maybe some Brie and if you're lucky a hunk of crumbly Stilton. If this is what you expect, give this place a wide berth or take your own. The plate, sorry slate, that arrived consisted of 2 types of cheese purporting to be Cheddar and Wensleydale, not wedges but small tasteless thin strips and bits, half a tomato and some wilted leaves. This pub could and should be so much better than it is given it's idyllic location, somebody.......anybody should get in there and sort it out!|

|Seems things haven't changed much since my last visit quite a while ago! The lakeside patio is still terrific. The food is still awful - mediocre if you're lucky. By the bar, they are still posting a list of dishes that they cannot serve due to unavailability of ingredients... some things never change. We rarely visit, and when we do, it's for the outdoor atmosphere, not the food. Go for a cold lager or drink in the garden, if you must. I'd love to be able to recommend this place for other reasons, but can't.|

|We went for a family meal to the Quays on 22nd May 2010 having been there for lunch many times. I suppose the warnings were there a few weeks ago when it took ages to get the food and no cutlery I had to get some myself.|
I am actually surprised that the reviews in 2007 are the same as my experience in 2010 so the management change hasnt helped.....
We ordered two peri peri burgers which were the driest bland est thing ever My wife chose the sea bass and it was cremated she couldn't cut through it and neither could I the vegetables were tasteless.
I had the jungle Thai curry and that was OK.
The menu is very limited with both my daughters choosing the safest option.
The problem was initially it took so long to get the food I had forgotten what I had ordered subsequently my daughter ordered a drink refill and we had to remind the next waitress about 10 plus minutes later.
So the food experience was abysmal as was the service.
The puddings were ok however custard was in a tiny pot for the pie making it not worth having the chocolate fudge cake again had a slither of ice cream.
The final straw came trying to pay my daughter had to go find someone for the bill and then they forgot us again we were ready to leave but waited at least 15 minutes before going to look for someone who could do the payment.
Luckily we found the manager we think who apologised etc but by then they had lost us as a customer for bad service and abysmal food. We were given a discount however it was a ruined evening priceless..
I don't think we or I will ever go there again one to be avoided shame as its in a fantastic location lastly the decor is out dated.
