 Ping Ping
If you could get a view of the kitchen you would not see anything coocking or hear anything apart from the ping of the microwave.
i will never eat here again the gravey was like congealed blood the chicken tasted like cat and the carrots were like an antelopes toe clippings.

The comment from 'Sabrina' was not made by a member of staff at The Schooner. We value customer feedback and would be happy to discuss any complaints that customers have. Although sites like this are great for genuine reviews, they are sometimes used to slate rival companies. Your comments about the kitchen are totally unfounded, as we are regularly inspected by Health Inspectors. There is no public access to any part of the kitchen so you would not have been able to view any part of it, although any of our customers are welcome to take a look - we have nothing to hide. I am sorry that you had a bad experience.

 Bound To Get Snags
i am sorry you didn't enjoy your meal.
we try our best and to be fair you are the first to complain.
So perhaps you had better take a long hard look at your self ?
After all we are only a pub not the Bloody Ritz.

 Wasted Journey
We made a reservation for a meal and when we got there the lady said she knew nowt about it.
how can you run a buisness like that ?

Tuesday, July 17, 2012Rating: rosettes

New owners have never ran a pub before, obviously. A mix of flat warm beer alongside barely warm food does not bode well. Why didnt they employ somebody who knows what they are doing

 Excellent service/food
After a most disappointing (to say the least) christmas meal at J------S W---F last year, we booked for christmas day. The food,waiting time, service, value for money could not be faulted.Perfect in every way!!

 good quality food, excellent atmosphere
I use the pub quite frequently, and since it's changed hands can honestly say, a vast improvement, so much so that I am using it for my wedding reception. The food is excellent, and you get a good portion size too. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Mr P tighe
My family used this pub to celebrate a 40th birthday party. My wife did the catering and we were charged 100 for the use of a draughty room with a small bar in the corner selling draught drinks from lines that had clearly that had not been cleaned for some time...in short it was bad!.
When we returned to collect the trays and platters etc a day or so later my wife found that she was short of some 20 or so items!!.
The pub denied any responsibility saying that people at the party took them, not so,after some checking we found that..yes maybe a few but not that many.
after visitng the pub a third time we were given some back..but again...not many.
Expensive, awful tasting drink,Bad attitude from staff.
My wife has been catering for many years now and in her own words...

Never again in that place

 Monday nights!
Monday night in the hourglass is a night held exclusively for adults with Learning disabilities and their carers. It is an excellent night held in the lounge, with a DJ playing popular and modern music and a bar. The bar staff are extremely friendly and pleasant. It makes a real change from the usual discos for individuals with a disabilty held in community centres and day centres. Well done

 friendly family pub
This pub has been in the family for twenty years. It is not fancy, and neither are the regulars! But it is a friendly and unpretentious house, and visitors are made wekcome.

I've been going to quizzes for years and the Greensides has had its share of quizmasters. The ones I remember were hosted by Terry Hanlon & Billy Blockbuster so they must be the good ones. To to a quiz in the same pub for a long period of time is hard & its gets harder & longer to compile, but to get good quizmasters you have to pay the money (you pay for what you get) and probably the best in town is Taffy, who is still doing 2 quizzes in the town one on a Tuesday in the Junctions Bar and the Pink Domino o.n a Sunday

I LOVE THE GREENSIDE, AND STAFF!
