Hi All

We used to enjoy a meal at this pub every year but this year all was fine when we visited at Easter we had the usual olde marys steak and ale pie with a nice big puff pastry top a golden fried chips very nice it was to went back this September and what a difference had the same as usual only this time shortcrust pastry not as nice and 3 small onions stuffed in the middle of it served with soggy greasy chips very poor quality and left very disappointed.

Hi Davebirch
the big prob is  a lot of us in Norfolk use Makro
i spose its a choice of home cooked or home reheated,
some times i do wince when its advertised as Chefs special of the day ,and i  can go and get it in Makro of the shelf so to speak.
or home made soup of the day,
my Gill makes home made soup, but we could never make a living out of it, it takes 3 to 4 hours to make fresh,
no one is going to wait that long.

So perhaps a Menu rebrand may help.
I like Pub grub and as long as its hot and on a clean plate i dont expect to much for £6 or £7 .
but all this Chef nonsense  leaves me cold.
We use a Restaurent in Lynn that does have a real Chef ,
it starts at £30 a person, you wait and its worth it.
moan over,

so reheat is one thing
and real cooking is another,
or am i wrong
INPUT PLEASE .

i don't know which company owns the bridge but if a pub is owned by a big company like the one i work for the menus are created by someone who sits in an office all day and doesn't have to cook the food they've decided to put on the menu 24-7 LOL and the menu will change twich a year in the spring and again in the autumn so the items on the menu have nothing to do with the manager or highly trained microwave operatives. hope this helps

Could I suggest that we have to be realistic about the time of year as well?  At Easter you can be reasonably certain of getting a fair bit of consistent trade but late in the season it is often hit and miss so you need to be able to cope with the sudden arrival of quite a large party but not have lots of waste if none pop in.  It’s not by chance that the provision of full meals at riverside pubs coincided with the advent of fridges and freezers.

hi everybody,just thought i could be helpful with some of the above queries.Yes we do work for a company but when it comes to new menus etc we are totally responsible.My team and I spent considerable time producing the current menu.We would hope that listening to our customers we have created a menu that provides something for everyone including the pricing.We cook the majority of items from fresh local produce also frozen products of great quality.
Happy Crimbo
