We visited at 6pm on a Sunday as a group of 8. Upon arriving we were told that half of the roasts were off the menu and there would be at least a 30 minute wait on everything else. We ordered starters to fill the time and they took well over an hour to come! Very slow service and our waitress then disappeared, so all drinks were ordered down at the bar thereafter. 1.30 hours in, we were told that there had been a mistake in the kitchen and a “fresh” joint had only just gone into the oven... Food came out around 9pm, with no real acknowledge or apology at the time. Roast Potatoes and veg were rubbery and clearly reheated, minimal gravy served with the meal (more came but only after we’d finished!) and the beef was over cooked, chewy and a shocking quality.. Not a great experience all round except one of the waiters, who was apologetic in the end (he did suggest that we should have given up waiting and went for a proper dinner at the Old Orchard, just up the hill from the Carp!) Probably worth waiting until new management takeover or trying somewhere else!
