stuffed but not stuffed!

I totally agree with the reviewer below. my friend and I went for a meal during the week and found the whole experience woeful. The restaurant area was totally empty so we asked for a table in the pub area. My friend ordered a burger and I had a starter (Souffle) the burger was overwhelmingly indifferent and the so-called hand-made chips were worse than McDonalds and had been thrown on the plate. The 'salad' with the burger consisted of one leaf of greenery hiding in the burger bun. My pear salad was a v pared down pear ..four microscopic wafers of pear arranged on the plate. The salad was totally tasteless. The guy/owner who plonked a flower pot with bread in it on our plate looked completely indifferent and the ambience was non-existent. We were charged £35 including a service charge for what was basically v inferior pub grub. The strap line on the menu..we don't serve fast food we take longer to cook good food (or something like that) was completely inaccurate. The food may not have been fast but it certainly tasted like it. We certainly won't be coming back!

Overpriced bland food
  4 / 10
It is a small pub with a small bar with a lot of swearing. I went on a rec I read on here and think the write up must have been done by the a friend of the Chef. Chef is a little OTT, short order cook is a better job title.

Bill for two courses for two was expensive at nearly 85 quid plus wine and drinks 120, they added a service charge so I hope the Kiwi and East European waitress get paid. Won't bother again.

Great Food
  9 / 10
Excellent food at this venu where you can choose to dine in the brightly lit bar area or in the more romantic 'restaurant' side.
The menu isn't cheap but the quality is worth every penny.
The wine list is pretty good, too, and the manager is friendly and informative, always happy to help you decide.
They also do a fantastic pint of 6X.
Only issue is that it has become very much a food venue rather than a pub one, meaning it is often impossible to get a table just to have a drink at, especially during the weekends when it is always neccessary to book.
