written by disgusted of surrey. well where do i start? my husband and myself thought lets go for lunch today its raining it will pass a pleasant hour or two. how wrong can you be? arrived at this establishment at 2.40pm the pub was not at all full about half a dozen couples. we had a look at the menu after about five minutes my husband ordered the food at the bar. had a drink which came very quickly to the table. after a while i looked at my watch and it was 3.05pm twenty five minutes is a very long time to wait for our starter which was ONLY warm breads with oil. so my husband went to investigate and was told that there was a mistake the order had not even been passed on to the kitchen!! after another 10 minutes the bread arrived which had obviously been heated in the microwave because it was VERY HOT NOT WARM . at this point we were thinking of leaving but decided to stay put. after another 20 minutes the main course arrived. my aubergine and lentil moussaka was cremated on top rock hard crust underneath i could not find any aubergine and the measly amount of greens on the plate were cold. my husbands meal was adequate but not hot. at this point i was losing the will to live so went to the bar and spoke to the manager telling her the food was barely edible. what exactly happens in that pub at that time of day when its practically empty is beyond me. are the staff tired or is it a change in shifts. this was dissapointing to say the least as we have eaten at the golden retreiver in wokingham which is excellent. may i as a customer suggest that some staff training is needed. but i obviously will not eat there again.
