We have Greene King pubs where we live and know normally what to expect.
While staying self catering accommodation nearby for the weekend we treated ourselves to a meal on the Sunday.
It was a disaster! The premises is tired looking at needs some attention however we continued in one good point was that it was table service which was a nice touch.
It was late in the day so I asked if roasts were still on the menu which I was informed yes, speedy and polite service although busy... and we thought busy was a good sign!!
Mum and I ordered a roast pork... meant to come with all the trimmings - what we were served was terrible.
The veg was spare and potatoes were passable but the meat was extremely poor. No crackling or Apple as described.
Mum just had pork fat and I had thick cut brown in coloured ends of a cut that were rancid.
On making comment to the waitress we did get a steaming dish of pale microwaved pork cuts that which was not appealing.
To be fair I did speak with the manager (something that I dislike doing but in this case was warranted) and we were fully refunded for the roast meals.
The boys had basic scampi and gammon steak which were reasonable.
Although we were refunded there was a reluctance to accept there was a problem and no apology offered.
It certainly spoilt what was meant to be a nice evening meal out!
