user reviews of Who'd a Thought It, Grafty Green

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I have rated this as 5 because it really is a 50/50 pub/restaurant; 50/50 in terms of quality, food, décor, and service. It was a Sunday night and the Sunday Lunch menu was still being served consisting mainly of roast dinners but I had the flat-iron stake which was just tremendous, really well cooked and served with the most delicious chunky chips. The rest of my party had the roast dinners where the meat and gravy were really nice but the veg was very soggy and under-seasoned with unimpressive roast potatoes (don't you think that you could forgive almost anything if you had crispy and fresh roast spuds!). There were two young lady waitresses who were very sweet and charming and really tried their best but were not familiar with the menu (even though it was a simple Sunday Lunch menu) and their knowledge of the wine list was zero. The décor of the Who's Have Thought It is also 50/50 but clearly a lot of money has been spent but the style may not be to everyone's taste with zebra skin and snake skin patterns everywhere, the place is very 80's in appearance with 80's music piped in the restaurant but for all this opulence we had cheap paper napkins - very strange.

New owners have breathed new life into this place during difficult times. More importantly new chefs have made the food a delight.

I prefer eating in the bar rather than the restaurant.

I believe a lot has changed since the review 25 aug 2008. Certainly worth a visit, if you can find it!

beautiful pub inside and out fantastic food beautifully presented BUT service was awful. The starter was wrong, the vegetarian roast dinner came with meat pnly gravy!!!!!!! asked for mustard only got one variety had to wait ages for dessert the cheese board was served without a knife ... and had to drink our coffees seperatley as they couldnot bring them together. The people behind us were served wrong wine wrong starter and even the wrong soft drink. No one came to apologise or ask us if we were enjoying our meal and although one waitress did seem to know what she was doing the other one had not got a cluewas quite abrupt and wasn't particularly bothered when she got the orders wrong. would try it once more to give benefit of the doubt as the food was very nice but if service the same ....sorry but red card, not that they will be bothered i am sure
