Had an American platter in here and it was awful. The chicken wings were probably the worst I have ever tasted, over cooked and tasteless. The southern fried chicken pieces were rock hard and the corn disgusting. Only reason it gets two stars is because the ribs were ok. Service was slow and after meal was served nobody bothered to ask if it was ok. Barman seems as if he’d much rather be anywhere than here, he’s probably so miserable because he gets free meals.
There are not many places to eat in Tilehurst but recommend finding anywhere but here.

It's great to have pub on your door step. But if would be even better if you have a bit more near by. By keeping side door shut when the noise comes from.

There was 7 of us. We ordered food it came out an hour later, cold/warm more cold than warm. Food was over cooked for some. Forgot cheese on one meal and 2 other meals cheese was not melted. Then we Ordered deserts, we had to wait just over an hour for, A frozen waffle, 3 melted sundaes one with a rock solid brownie then they came out after giving out 5 of our deserts and said they didn't have 2 of the deserts so 2 people had to have a substitute... Even though they gave us a apology and paid the difference for the deserts, it is a slow and poor service.

As a family we regularly come here, even though we have had problems in the past. Today was one of those bad occasions. We pre booked for 7 of us so there was no surprise when we turned up. Our lunch was cooked well and in a reasonable time. We then waited 60 mins for desserts and chased the staff twice only to be told it wasn’t in stock. Then one of the desserts wasn’t prepared correctly and uneatable, the rest was just as bad. We come here for its local location and it’s friendliness. The staff member did his best to help resolve our issues. However the management is still clearly poor and unable to run the business correctly.
