Literally just home from having dinner at this pub.

Staff handled the crowds well as they came out of nowhere (mix of families ordering food and general after work people). Unfortuantely as a customer that has been coming here for the last couple of years, I've witnessed the gradual but steady decline of the pub. Upon ordering food this evening, I was mildly shocked to see that two mains, one side and two drinks came in at over �30. For this price (�3.95 of that being the pint of Strongbow) I'd expect the quality of the food to be far better. �6 for a bowl of onion rings that were clearly extracted from the nearest bulk packet and slung in the deep fryer and �11 for their trademark Anglers Burger which over the last 18 months has become more salad and less meat.

Knowing me I'll persevere with it however I really do hope it improves.

Know how to keep their beer, evidenced by an excellent tasty pint of Brakspear Bitter. Bearing in mind the price - food is only slightly above adequate, and unspectacular for vegetarians. Seemed popular with families but didn't feel like a creche either.

I have been a fairly regular visitor to this pub over the years and have posted before about it. The pub is a pleasant place and the beer is good ( yesterday I had Ringwood FortyNiner which was spot on ). The food is usually good but one issue I have repeatedly experienced here is a very long wait for said food. There appears to be a frequent problem with co-ordinating the waiting staff and those cooking the food. I had reminded my family of this before we set out but the consensus was to still go.

Last night we had a very poor experience in this respect. We ordered a starter and a main course. Bad move. The starter came after a while. We ate it. And waited for the next course. And waited. And waited. And moaned about it. And waited again.

All in all we waited forty five minutes from ordering to the main course arriving. When it did it tasted like someone had cooked it half an hour ago and left it under a heater lamp. I was too hungry to send it back.

But we were unanimous in deciding that this has happened once too often at the Anglers for our liking and we won't be going again. If I want an evening meal in a pub I'll go elsewhere. I'm sure I can find somewhere who can get some food to me in a reasonable time.

Went in yesterday for a meal and to watch the football. The food was excellent and although a tad on the expensive side, there was a good selection of beer. Unfortunately though, the issue of children in the bar seems to be an issue again. Despite the signs on the door saying children had to be out of the bar by 8 o'clock, when my father and I left at 10, there were still 5 children, 4 of them in school uniform (and 1 who must have only been in nursery!), wandering around the bar while their parents continued drinking. A shame really as it is a great pub with nice relaxing decor (the fish tanks are fantastic). Shame they don't practice what they preach.

Always busy. Food very good and excellent value. Drinks are expensive compared to the food though. However well worth a visit. Beer is mainly Brakspears.
