Went in for a drink and had excellent service from sheena, its so nice to visit a pub with mature staff instead of all these youngsters who have no personality and don't know how to have banner with customers

We hAd to wait for lockdown so we could go and go out for food and drinks
We looked to see what was available and found the Grill was open and had good restrictions
We gave are names and address and then ordered are drinks and served quite fast probably as we were the only 2 couples there
I like being served and no having to go to the bar
Had 2 rounds beer and spirits all at normal prices
Good distancing and the tent is very good
Have not been into town since and will visit here when we do decide to go out

Rather than celebrate 150 years, the management need to sort their staff out. I was in today, the duty manager was dealing with a customer, the barman was behind the bar. The other member of staff, a new lass, was standing at the customer side of the bar whatsapping on her phone while I waited to be signed in. I had to wait a few minutes until the manager had finished with the customer and then attended to me.
When has it ever been ok for The Grill staff to be paid to WhatsApp and blatantly ignore customers?
Added to this is the fact they are now letting in half the nutters in town, serving them when they are pissed, and letting them annoy the normal customers.
Changed times indeed.

A place without compromise, if you love whiskey this is your place ... here you can't pretend, here you can't cheat. When the going gets tough the tough get going.
