Came to enjoy dinner for the first time at our nearest pub, and looked forward to it, given the mostly good reviews.
The start was chaos, with no-one obviously in charge of seating us ( we had booked a table). eventually went to the bar where one of the barmaids checked her computer and showed us to a table, distributing menus.. There we waited about ten minutes before getting any recognition that we existed.
Omce ordered, the starters came quickly and were excellent. Two of us had the fried whitebait, which were excellent.
The real problems came with the fish and chips main course, a litmus test meal for any pub. Some one at the chequers thought it would be cool and trendy to have relatively small square plates for the main courses. The only problem with this decision is that most pub food, including our fish and chips, is far too big for trendy little square plates. As a result the fried fish arrived on top of the chips, rendering them all soft and greasy.
The fish portion was generous, but the chips were dreadful The place needs to spend some money and buy some proper round plates.
