I had the Sunday lunch there on 28th November, the food was luke warm and the yorkshire puddings were totally cremated, how any chef could allow them to be served beats me. Never again

Even though I live locally, it was my first time in The Pines, may I correct that, first and absolute last. I am a regular in The Morgue where the food is always first class so I guess Tom has spoilt me over the years...and I have high standards as a result. The business lunch that I had today in The Pines, roast beef was horrendous, there is no other way to describe it. The beef was full of fatty pieces, the overall meal was simply awful including presentation, am still gagging.... just avoid is all I can say.More

Visiting family on Sunday, can't find a pub that doesn't serve "carvey". Had dinner here before so wasn't worried. 5 adults & 2 children, tagliatelle with prawns & scallops & chilled, tuna, pork, beef burgers & kids meals ordered. Empty plates all around 👏 We...shared a mix of desserts, all fantastic, no room for coffee. Second visit will definitely be backMore
