Last night, four of us ate in the restaurant upstairs, which was busy and there was one girl serving. She was over stretched. My girlfriend and I ordered steak and waited one hour for the food to arrive.
When my medium rare steak finally showed up, the meat was really poor quality. It was well done, shoddy looking, sodden, small, shoe leather. The vegetables were awful, a stodgy overcooked slab of potatoe, hot and cold tomatoes and what appeared to be raw carrots cooked for 45 seconds..? One of the side salads looked like it had been scraped off another plate, that we would not have ordered, had we known the same would be served on our plate? I sent back the carcass and received a burger 30 minutes later, that was ok.
In addition, they had the audacity to charge 12.5% service and not deduct the difference of the burger from the steak on the bill. I’m not sure what is going on in the restaurant and kitchen but I would certainly recommend firing the chef.
The pub, architecture and history are everything’ a pub should be.
The cuisine is amateur at best. The four of us collectively agreed, a high street chain’ was better than this offering.
