Had Sunday lunch carvery . Had the beef which looked the best option but was dry looking as we're all the meats. It was pretty tough . Yorkshires looked rather sad and flat but tasted good .poor selection on veg. It was certainly a no frills affair. Mash and roast potatoes were lovely.. it was very quiet so I assume the locals know it's not a gastronimical delight. This used to be a vibrant popular pub and although it looks fabulous since it's revamp it's not being looked after. Tables were sticky and light bulbs we're missing or out in a lot of the chandeliers. However apart from the chef who looked miserable but was pleasent . The staff were helpful and polite. The real real and comfortable chairs were a bonus . And a word of warning to the ladies. Don't spend too much time in the loo the lights are on a sensor. Which only operates outside the cubicles and it's very dark.
Service was good but the Thai meals were disappointing. Food swimming in oil. I had one glass of sauvingon blanc which i didn't enjoy so tried a pinot grigio which was no better. Sorry but my first experience of the Robin was not a good one!
