After myself and a group of friends went out for a long family/dog walk, we had booked to have Sunday lunch in the pub. Upon booking the table, the staff emailing had said that dogs aren’t usually allowed, especially on busy Sundays. They said they would allow us in this time... this was then met by a reply from a friend in the group that reminded the pub that we have eaten there before, and had two dogs with us. So that new information was a lie. Upon arriving, my welcome was cold. I sat at the table were the staff said they would bring over menus. As I was the first of the group to arrive, I didn’t see a menu or get offered a drink order as I waited 10 minutes. After everyone had arrived I then ordered from the two dishes Sunday menu. I ordered fish cake to start, and roast beef for my main. When our food did arrive, I was shocked to find a metal bolt In my fish cake. This was not a small bolt (see photo on Trip Advisor). I told the staff, and it was taken away straight away. The manager did offer me a free drink and said my food orders would be covered by the pub. The annoying thing is that they seemed to dismiss the seriousness of the situation. If the bolt wasn’t huge in size, myself or someone could have swallowed it, or caused serious damage to their teeth/mouth. Once the main dishes came out, a member of staff seemed to be annoyed that people are ordering food. He pretty much slammed our main dishes down on the table. He also put down a couple of extremely hot plates right next to the 2 year old at the table. Does the guy not have any common sense? I understand it may be a busy Sunday lunch service, but don’t be an idiot. Later a staff member came over to ask how our main dishes were and seemed to joke about that we “didn’t find any hidden extras inside your meals”. I definitely think this is highly unprofessional. Especially after what I had found in my meal. All in all, it was a terrible experience. And a place I wouldn’t want to return to.

Me and my son go every week and that means for the last two years. Why do we go ? cos the foods excellent, and the beers tasty and everyones so friendly. Just one thing though, the food good but I do wish they'd change the menu !
