Visited for a Sunday Roast
To start with we were seated and handed a menu, no sign of a roast on here do we asked. Oh you want a roast I’ll get you the menu. Our drink order was taken and delivered with in a few minutes. After waiting 20 minutes I tried to get a staff members attention to take our order. He’s where the fun begins. We both ordered the £9.99 roast which included pigs in blankets. Within 1 minute of ordering I asked for two side orders of cauliflower cheese, I was told no problem I’ll sort it
Food came out after 35 minutes which I thought was shocking. To be fair the roast looked really nice. Unfortunately that’s where it ended.
I had the beef with peas, long beans, swede mash, parsnips, Yorkie puds and roasts potatoes.
The potatoes were hot that was it. Yorkies we’re ok the rest was warm. Even the gravy was warm. My wife had the Turkey and everything was warm. On her plate no pig in blankets, no parsnips and no Cauliflower cheese for either of us. We asked where the rest of our food was to a reply of I’ll sort it. After half way through our warm roast out came the parsnips on a side plate which looked like road kill.
Then the cauliflower cheese came. They only delivered one tiny bowl and this was shocking. Frozen cauliflower with a bit of melted cheese and definitely microwaved. I didn’t even worry about the other portion as it was so terrible. Obviously we paid an extra 99p for the cauliflower cheese which we both thought was strange.
Our bill came and we were charged £1.99 for pigs in blankets which we never had but were included in the price. On questioning the bill we were told that the cauliflower button on till did not work but the pigs in blankets button did. This was rectified
We overheard customers on the other table complain about the temperature of their food and they were told, “ we have had 3 chefs and bar staff leave” don’t serve food then if you can’t cope.
The restaurant was half empty at best.
This is undoubtedly the worst roast dinner I have ever had. A microwave roast would have been better.
The frustrating thing is we have eaten breakfast here and it’s been excellent.
We actually feel that we have wasted £25 and nearly tee we o hours of our time.
Won’t be rushing back
