The service was poor. We were seated and then didn’t see anyone for over 25mins. Eventually went to the bar to ask if we could have some service. Waitress came over and took the order for both drinks and food. The starters came out about 20mins later but no drinks, they did eventually turn up 10 mins later.
The food was awful. There were four caveries and one fish and chips. The fish and chips were cremated, the chips were hard and the batter on the fish was blackened in places.
The caveries were just as bad, the meat was dried out, the veg was hard as a rock and the roast potatoes were covered in what could only be explained as pepper ??
We returned nearly full plates as we couldn’t eat what was served and complained to the manager who deducted £20 off the bill ?
Never usually complain but this was the worst meal I’ve had

May I ask what time you were booked in and the name of the booking so we can look into this further for you, we served over 100 carveries on Sunday with no other complaints and lots of satisfied customers. With regards to the wait we were extremely busy on Sunday due to adhering to COVID restrictions which can sometimes result in a delay but this is for your safety

Waiters didn’t know about specials (some were mentioned on Facebook page and I asked about them, didn’t order in end as we were quite hungry and didn’t want to delay food coming by asking them to find out).

Also table (which we’d reserved) hadn’t been cleaned when we arrived.

However food and general service was good as usual. They were busy so understandable. Will still be eating there again as lovely place to go for a meal or drink.

On a date night with the wife, we thought let’s go to the Beams their food has always been to a very high standard. Service was good cannot fault the staff. But the food was just far too greasy and stodgy….

The meal was nice other than the chips were quite hard not like the usual ones you do . The noise was some drunken regulars which doesn’t bother me but we had our granddaughters and some of the language was a bit blue other than that it was good staff worked hard .

The wait for food was absolutely atrocious (this is with bearing in mind the staffing levels due to Covid), my order was brought out wrong on each occasion and the pudding was that hard you could not get the spoon through it. An added bonus of the day, the chef walked out!

The Old Beams
Responded 4 days ago

Apologies for your experience, this is very unusual. The delays are mainly caused by COVID and for your safety. But you didn't get an added bonus as the chef certainly didn't walk out so I'm really not sure your comments are correct

Top notch carvery but service beyond abysmal. Visited sun 30th May. 1245 booking, drinks by 1300, food by 1315 but left at 1415 as no second drinks or desserts served. Carvery was really good but the service far too slow for food. Seemed to be a lot faster if you was sat outside for drinks only.

Absolutely great food was excellent staff were amazing 5 star
Only negative, We choose a bad spot to sit it was very cold, and draughty due to the pub following the guidelines so we totally understood, again not the fault of pub but had a table to the right of us that model phones were going off, then on loud speakers just a bit thoughtless on the customers that’s not the pubs fault at all, definitely going back will sit somewhere else ;)

Good carvery. Half price for Mum smaller plate but plentiful. Tables have nice character but seemed a bit sticky. If difficult to clean I think need to be replaced .

I have been a few times and meals have been really good, but last nights meal was really bad.
Firstly it took around the 10 minutes for someone to seat us and then another 15 to get our drinks. We was seated by the carvery part and the noise from the kitchen from the kitchen staff was loud them singing and messing around.
The waitress herd the noise and apologised and said she will need to yo and tell them. Any other time that would of been ok they were enjoying work but when food comes out cold and not very nice at all they are clearly putting more energy into messing around than cooking.
No one came to ask how the meal was , My sister had to get up to find someone to complain about the meal a man came over to the table and apologised and came back with the bill of half the price .
Its so disappointing that this experience was so bad.
