Doom Bar, yawn and yawn again, Rev James... was OK and Tribute coming soon. Food OK, but nothing more than OK. Do they count the chips? Yes I think so.... staff, OK and only ok. Please and thank you dont seem to be used here, at all.... so I followed suit..... could be SO MUCH BETTER, but apathy seems to be king here.

Went in last night at about 10:05pm, cosy place busy and the food aroma was good. Asked if there was still any food available, after a couple of minutes the barmaid came back and said no. Literally 2 seconds later the chef (Or someone wearing a chef style garb) came round to the bar area and said they were now off home. It was on the late side agreed (10:05) - although I would have settled for a bowl of chips, burger, salad - anything quick and easy to put together. But this was not offered. Ordered a pint of Tribute, tasted quite good... Asked for peanuts; "We got crisps..." was the reply. As it turns out they had one flavour of crisps... After one more pint of Tribute, I left for the hotel room...
Conclusion: Tribute was good, the other beer was Rev James, didn't try it. Bar staff were OK. Very disappointing with the poor food show, having already checked the website earlier in the day there was no stated cut off time for last food orders. I re-iterate I'd have settled for a bar snack but this wasn't even offered. I was extremely tired and probably looked worse for wear so a bite to eat would have been gratefully received and probably generated a financial tip for the bar staff... But as there was no food offered...

I went with a party of 6 for a meal at 7.30pm yesterday. My wife was served chilled white wine in a HOT glass. very difficult for the barman to change the glass, only after demanding to see the manager, was this done. Toilets were out of order. We were given a table in full view of a bucket in the middle of the floor for dripping water.The menu boards were not up to date, after queing to order only to be told they had run out. Finally ordered main meals, when they arrived I asked for the onion rings that had been ordered, and was told they would be on the way. 15 minutes later I asked a lady where the onion rings were, and was told they were on the way. When I almost had finished my meal, my wife asked again, and they then arrived at the end of the meal. Nobody came to clear the table to order desserts, so back to the bar again, same story, they had run out of some desserts, finally reordered. To sum up the food was good, the service was non existant, all in all a very dissapointing evening, and nothing like I have experienced of a lunchtime in this pub.
