Part of the Hall and Woodhouse family and a little favourite of mine since I was a child. I grew up in Hangelton & this place has fond summer memories for me, plus it’s where me and lee had our first-ever date.
It was a Wednesday in early January (one of our date days) and we rocked up to the pub with no booking at about 4 pm ish, we hadn’t had a proper lunch so were looking for a hearty early dinner.
As you walk in there are two sides(one is the more traditional pub seating and the other he comfortable seating leading to a more restaurant vibe. We were seated in the fairly empty restaurant room side of the pub. It looked very familiar but a little tired, as our surroundings were covered in cobwebs above us but I guess it’s part of the ascetic. It did leave a question mark in my mind though to how the food would be as we hadn’t visited in too long.
The two servers we sore were very kind and attentive, we explained we had a code for 30% off done through their website and the gentleman explained he could sort that out at the end of our meal.
We both ordered our favourite fruity ciders and perused the menus. The menu has various options covering all manner of dietary needs, Lee went for the double cheeseburger and I went for the beer-battered fish and chips.
I adored mine, it was crispy light, and very well cooked, the chips were triple cooked, crisp without being greasy. Yum! Lee liked his but was less than impressed with the amount of burger sauce in his, he liked the sauce but didn’t love it and he got thin fries with his and I think he was envious of my chunky triple-cooked ones. We both were thinking of dessert but they didn’t have the one we wanted so we decided to call on a night and paid our bill. It was overall a lovely experience, relaxed atmosphere, lovely cider and good food.
