After reading the latest 5 star reviews on this place I was destined to give this place a try. Me and my fiancée were absolutely starving and looking forward to stuffing our bellies with a fresh British carvery.
What we were faced with however left a lot to be desired. £9.95 on a Sunday for what can only be described as really poor quality and insulting food considering the price. The beef was overcooked, the turkey was fatty and gristly, and the gammon was undercooked. To top that off everything else that I had was from a packet. Frozen Yorkshire puddings (which were chewy), frozen stuffing, frozen carrots, frozen broccoli(which was rock hard), and then the ultimate insult, frozen roast potatoes. There wasn't a lot of variety either, carrots and broccoli were the only traditional vegetables on offer and were poorly cooked as well as poorly seasoned.
I would like to stress that frozen products are in general used for convenience, which indicates a lazy approach to the food here. I will do nothing to further the reputation of a business which obviously lacks passion and drive to deliver value for money to their customers. There are other pubs and chains willing to serve good quality fresh food for less than the asking price at this place e.g. Crown carveries.
We will most certainly not be returning in the near future, 1 star is generous.
