The Pony Inn

Post by GD on Tue 08 Feb 2011, 9:04 pm

Well what what can I say..

Had a meal with the other half and wish I had not bothered

I had Beer Battered Cod and Chips, well the batter was not that stunning and the chips looked and tasted like frozen french fries which had been fried and left for hours, they were presented dried up and shriveled on the plate

The other half had a lamp curry, well the lamb pieces were more fat than meat, and the sauce tasted liked a bolognaise sauce with a few extra herbs and chives thrown on top for good measure

I know that not many people would be going there at this time of the week, but to present meals like this will certainly not make punters want to return...

We did not get asked when the plates were collected whether they meal was OK, despite most of it still left on the plate, I did comment to the staff member how disappointed I was with the meal,

When we went to pay the staff member took our money without anything said....

Sorry but it will be some time before I return again...

Shame, we went there 3 weeks ago and could not fault it. Had a three course meal and everything was well presented, hot, and ample portions. hope it gets better as I was hoping to return soon.

I must say it was our favourite venue in the north of the Island (we used to go quite often for lunch and as a foursome for dinner) until it changed hands (about 18 months ago I think) since then we have not had a good meal - until your post I was hoping it had pulled itself up - but apparently not :-(

well most disappointed in todays meal, there was no vegan stuff on the menu to choose from, and my 6 yr old is a strict vegetarian and no options for her either, only ham egg and chips, so i asked for just egg and chips for her cos otherwise she would have started shouting theres a dead pig on my plate get it off, and i got charged for the ham that we didnt have! for a kids meal and mine that i really didnt want but there wasnt much option i paid 19 quid, for a kids main meal and just a main for me, wont be going back in a hurry !

The Chippie is not for Veggies or Vegans as they fry everything in the same fryer.......so your chips are fried in oil that has fried Burgers and Fish and the oil is not Vegan either :-(((( .....from a Vegetarian of 35+ years affraid

Same everywhere Schoolyjo - in Australia they treat me as though I've got some sort of contagious disease - but I have survived thus far - but I agree it is very annoying to be told 'we can do you an omelette' and you know that they use the cheapest eggs, which are the product of battery hens and not in the least bit suitable!!!! Sad :-(((((
