We've been going to the Grange off and on as a couple for over ten years. It is a lovely pub, the decor is nice, inside and outside are both lovely places to sit, and the atmosphere is very comfortable.

In the evenings when we typically go (infrequently) it is a very bustling and busy pub.

We used to eat there years ago, and decided to go this time with our kids for Saturday lunch (16/0912).

The bill came to £45, which I felt was steep, especially given the service and quality. While I didn't time it, the food seemed to take an age to come, yet the pub was very quiet. We ate the following:

1*kids meal chicken and chips - over fried and dry chicken breast that the kids wouldn't eat, chips, no veg

1*cajun calamari starter- didn't taste cajun, didn't taste like nice plain calamari, greasy and quite unpleasant

1*burger - dry, pretty tasteless meat, unpleasant chips

1*sausage and mash - cheap tasting sausages, mash didn't seem to have been mashed properly, and was probably reheated in the microwave, given its dry constituency

2*diet cokes, 2*apple juices ...yes, £45 for that

Definitely a drinking pub, definitely not an eating or a kids pub, what a shame!

Disastrous visit.

Went for Sunday lunch on Mothers Day and had a very negative experience.

Had to wait 1 hour 28 minutes from point of ordering for the food to arrive, which didn't help the patience of my 2 1/2 year old son.

When we asked about the delay after just over an hour (we had to ask!!!!!...not told anything beforehand that there was any delay) the barman said he's on the bar and didn't know, but he was aware that 2 chefs had called in sick.

The food eventually arrived and the roast potatoes were dried out from being under a lamp and were horrible. The chips for my son were so overdone that they were hard and dark brown.

Stuffing for the roast chicken dish arrived on a separate plate as they forgot....and worse still no apology offered for the unbelievably long delay.

We will never return there as the food, for the gastro prices charged, did not live up to the standard it should have been.

Very very disappointed with the whole thing.
