We went to Trading Post for an evening meal and a drink. My partner is vegetarian and we saw they did vegetarian sausages on bubble and squeak in a yorkshire pudding. It sounded lovely and I had steak, scampi and chips. They were very busy and we waited quite a while between our Garlic Mushroom starters, which were delicious, and our mains. Mine was fine but my partners vegi sausages were almost black and the Yorkshire pudding was so overcooked it was brittle. He ate what was edible but complained to the waitress who offered to replace it or give us free puddings which we declined. She came back a few minutes later with a full refund for his dinner which was very good.

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I'm disappointed to hear that you didn't enjoy your vegetarian bubble and squeak - I'll be sure to pass your feedback onto the kitchen so that the same isn't repeated in the future.

I hope your recent experience doesn't deter you from returning and hope to see you back with us again soon.

Kind regards
Georgia

Went here after a family day out. The place was rammed and there are a lot of tables so that generally says good things. The staff were very polite with Charlie being out server that day and standing out. With it being so busy there was a wait for food but it tasted great so more than happy to wait

Lovely food, I came with my dad and little sister apart from the lovely food I noticed one of the workers could possibly be a manager her name was michelle ? She couldn't go out her away enough for the customers there today, she made everyone feel welcome and you could see she had built an excellent relationship with her customers ,I work in retail myself and never have I met someone so involved with their customers , she defiantly goes above and beyond , before we had even ordered she was there with colourings for my little sister it was busy and very well run , I have no doubt most of the customers there were there for michelle aswell as the yummy food I will be back
