The Rose and Crown, Cuckfield

My husband and I visited today to enjoy a Sunday lunch at what we remember as a lovely country pub. It turns out the place was refurbished and a new Spanish menu introduced last Wednesday.
To say we are disappointed would be an understatement. The wine list is ok and we enjoyed a lovely bottle of Sancere for 28....this was served warm and we needed to ask for a ice bucket. However the menu consisted of Tapas of a very basic level , none of which we fancied - it was potatoes and beans and omelette rather than chorizo, mushrooms and seafood as I would have expected. The main courses were equally unexciting and everything came with chips , with no alternative. My husband ordered chicken in rosemary and garlic (with chips!!) and I ordered cod loin with chilli and garlic (with chips!!) - when our order arrived the chicken was three simples strips of chicken with rosemary scattered over it sitting on a pile of chips - did I mention this turned up at the same time as our starter !!! I received cod in batter (not what I had ordered) pieces of what I believe was pollack (although not proved) in batter on chips!! So having stated to the the friendly and unsuspecting bar staff that we'd like our main course separately from our starter......overall the food as well cooked but I feel completely cheated ....our meal came to 63 and seriously we had chicken and chips and fish and chips!!! ....the bar staff told us the owners had recently moved from Spain to open this pub.....I feel like I have walked into a cafe in the Costa del Sol ...and paid twice the price....x
