We just visited the Rubbing House after a walk in the Downs with our two children. Was told very on entering through the door 'no under 18s in the bar!' My partner pointed to a free table in the restaurant and we were told 'No!' before we could even discuss if we're able to order lunch. Very unwelcoming for families or people enjoying the downs. Fellow walkers beware, don't bother!!

My husband and I went to eat inside on a friday night. We had ordered our dinner and drinks by the waitress and then the maitre d come over and in a very unfriendly way asked us to move to a smaller table as they were getting busy. Suffice to say we won't be going back, even though this is our local pub and we have been before with our local association. Next tim we will be going to the derby arms next door.

I found the place had a highly commercial atmosphere, was a bit expensive, and seemed to be organised for the convenience of the management, rather than that much consideration for the customers' experience.

Beneath the perfunctory civility, a somewhat hard attitude seemed perceptible.

That said, the beer and food quality were reasonably OK, but you'd think so at the prices.

We went for a meal on Saturday, one of many in the past and has always been fabulous. But we havent been for a month or so and we are sooo disappointed the size of the meal is smaller, with the beefburgers coming with only 15 chips and the once glorious Moussaka in a tiny bowl and a smaller portion inside with next to no meat and no sign of an aubergine. We wont be going back.
We understand that prices have to go up but this not good.

Went to this pub yesterday with my wife and son. We�ve ordered food and tea for two of us, because my son does not eat this kind of food, so he had his lunch at McDonalds beforehand. Steak was good, fish and chips were awful. When finished the food had to wait for one tea 20-30 minutes, and 5 minutes more for second tea :) I thought that�s a really bad service and we decided to go away when we finish our tea.

BUT suddenly a very big and aggressive man approached our table, behind his back one of the waiters was waiting. Without presenting himself to us he quickly and rudely asked if we have finished with the meal pointing his finger at MacDonald�s bag that was sitting on the table since we got into this place. He was unbelievably rude and basically was bulling us and told us to go away now without even finishing tea. I said we not going until we finish, he called POLICE. I talked to the police officers and they were surprised because they were told that someone (myself) really misbehaving at the pub (crashing things and fighting with a staff). If anything than it was other way round and me and my family were bullied by this guy who refused to give his name and just said that he is an owner and I should get out.

This is the most DREADFUL experience of pubs/restaurants in my life. Think twice before going there or be prepared be bullied by so called OWNER.
