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!
