    We had to ask for menus after sitting at table for 10 minutes . I had pre booked a high chair but had to get it myself.drinks were very slow although the place seemed fairly quiet. The roast beef was so tough we had to ask for steak knives to cut it . We asked for the toddlers ice cream to come out first as he was getting fidgety ; it came last! We were served tea with no milk . The tea had gone cold and had to be replaced by the time I found a waitress to bring some milk. We have eaten her on several occasions but will never go back

    Our table wasn’t ready when we arrived. After ordering 7x roast dinners we were really disappointed when they were all cold and had to be sent back. New member of staff serving us - she coped really well! Like the offer of additional roasties & Yorkshire Puds. The puddings were delicious
