over the last two years I have eaten here five times,i have never had the £5 menu but only the specials.the photos on here are definitely not what you get.the portions are ridiculously small but I have persevered assuming I have just been unlucky.
last night two of us ordered the lamb rump,when they arrived I was speechless,i kicked myself for not having my phone to take a photo to put on here.we both had a very small portion of mash with 3 tiny pieces of carrot but a large spoon of frozen peas which had been spread out to cover some of the plate.on top of the mash was the lamb,this was unbelievable,it was about half size of a chickens egg and looked ridiculous,when I cut into it,it was totally overdone and dried out.even if the meal was cooked ok there wasn't enough to make a sandwich.
I think between us we have tried all the specials and would suggest asking for all of them at once to make a proper meal,i am unsure as to the good food reviews on here and assume them to be family and friends.i may still call in for a pint now and again but the food is definitely a no no .
if you read the reviews a bit closer it appears that out of seven restaurants in stavely the duke William is sixth !!!!!!!! I will confine my dining to the much superior eagle and child in future !!!!!
