mmmm microwave food

At microwave food prices.

Chain Pubs with no atmosphere, but hey, cheaper than McDonalds for fast food if that's your thing, and if you can use a 2 for 1 Walkers Rainy Days offer cheaper than your local Chip Shop.

Good price, but you get what you pay for... Went to one of these pubs the other week. Steaks are tough and chicken is like something out of a Rustlers burger.

I have to say my wife and I visit a sizzling pub regularly. (Sherwood in Preston) Steaks have always been cooked perfectly and very tasty and the chicken, which my wife often has is excellent.

Also atmosphere in pub is first class and not like a wetherspoons at all.

Decent food at decent prices, if you want a la carte go elsewhere and pay a la carte prices.

the lamb is delicious,

Quite possibly, but then again it is highly likely that many food outlets charging 4 times this price also serve up microwave food.

For a few quid more you can have proper home cooked food in a pub with soul though. Most good pubs do main meals well under a tenner.

Looks like the Walkers Rainy Days vouchers aint going to be acceped with this then!

Used the one in banbury and it was the worst service and food I have ever had.Main course was overcooked and replacement had a hair in it. Made to wait 45 minutes for 2 icecreams for the kids that never turned up! Made a complaint to there head office and never received a reply. AVOID!!

I think some people who like to slate the food from these places havent actually been and just listen to what others have said.

I have one near me which sells pints at £2.05 and the food is pretty good. As you say you get what you pay for but definitely good for a quick bite to eat.

Also the chocolate fudge mountain or whatever it is called is massive!

Presumably you've been in all of them or your comment about no atmosphere would be ridiculous.

Try the Haymoor in Poole. Way too much atmosphere!!!

I know what you are saying James, but as is always the way if you have a good meal you tell a few people and if you have a bad meal you tell everyone! If people are slating the deal with no proof either way then you've just gotta leave them to it. Sounds like it's worth the trip just for the beer prices!!!

The one I go to in Poynton is great, nice food , good service and good atmosphere.

Perhaps I should have worded better, chain pubs offer little in the way of character and "unique atmosphere" is what I was getting at.

Pubs you drive to and have a leaving sign saying "have a nice day, safe journey"

The one I go to in Milton Keynes every Friday is great, nice food , good service and good atmosphere.
Nice mix of all age groups.

Character and unique atmosphere is a matter of personal taste. One man's 'atmosphere' is another man's 'noisy joint' is a third man's posh joint full of pompous wannabes.

If we all liked the same places, then there would be only one type of food on offer, and we'd soon be bored, so be thankful places like this exist alongside the dimly lit places illuminated by candles in chianti bottles with portions the size of a hamster at £30 a head.

Rubbish. My local sizzler has great atmosphere, live footie (if you want to stay in that room) quality live local bands, good beer at decent prices £7 for a bottle of wine and the food is fine, not NC or CB but at the price its perfectly acceptable. Well done Sizzler and sizzling hot from me

the steak at giffard park, milton keynes is pretty good for the price. Always cooked how i like it

Went to The Plough in Aylesbury last Friday, really nice staff and good food. 2 Main meals with drinks for £10. Food was great, service was a little slow that day but they were short staffed and apologised without being asked. However we have used it many times and 99% of the time we have no problems at all.
Tell me a restaurant that doesn't make a mistake or take 20 mins to produce the food once in a while.

I disagree, to state "portions the size of a hamster for £30" is stereotyping any pub that offers high class food, some consumers like to pay for quality over quantity.

Whilst personally I wouldn't appreciate personally (and couldn't afford) to frequent pubs like that, you could equally stereotype chains such as Sizzlers and Weatherspoons (which I have been in) as piling the food high and selling it cheap to pull in the punters.

"Stick a larger portion of frozen chips from Iceland on the consumers plate, make them feel like they are getting a good deal."

The fact that more and more of these chains are hitting town high streets is affecting the business of "working class" pubs far more so than any "high class restaurant" pubs.

I would sooner go to a working class pub that offers homemade pub food like their own pie and homemade chips, and have some character and real ales, rather than a pub that has a set menu across a whole chain across the country with similar decors and lacking in any soul, to me personally it's like the whole X Factor is the manufactured pop music, Pub Chains are manufactured Public Houses.

Like it or not (and lots seem to like it as its working) pub chains are killing off the traditional British Pubs particularly more so in towns.

Be thankful places like this exist? That's a joke, it's because places like this exist and are killing off traditional pubs that there is little in the way of good quality traditional pub food left!...increasing the gap between Weatherspoons/Sizzlers et al chains that knock out generic beers cheap and frozen food cheap in comparison to high class restaurant/nouveau cuisine style pubs.

Cicobuff, I haven't seen very many pubs serving traditional English food for years, long before these chains came into existence, and those that do charge a price that I am not prepared to pay. Unlike yourself though, I am happy to see hamster sized portion serving restaurants exist alongside these chains you so despise. I just don't go to them, and leave them to those who like them.

It's a mistake to assume tiny portions always equals quality, more likely that they are just making a fashion statement, and it seems people with too much money are just as likely to fall victim to fashions as poor people are.

By sheer coincidence, I have just eaten in a Sizzlers pub, not as a result of this topic, but I was going anyway. The steak was certainly not microwaved, and the chips were the same as those I have encountered in hotels at wedding receptions at £40 a head. It cost £10 for 2 steaks and 2 pints of beer. I admit the pub was characterless, and the beer was keg and too cold, but there again, many so called upmarket places sell rubbish beer. They just charge twice as much for it. I'm not even a steak fan, as I'd much prefer a curry, but on the few occasions I have had steak, none was significantly superior to the one I've just had.

In effect, I've had an adequate meal, and I still have most of my money left, and unlike the hamster portions, I don't need to sneak off when my friends aren't looking (as I have witnessed on more than one occasion), to eat something else because my portion was only adequate for a newly weaned baby.

I never stated tiny portions = quality, and actually stated I don't frequent those places because I cannot afford to, and I am sure there are some that are rip offs, as there are others that are not.

From what I have seen on TV though, DECENT higher class restaurants that do not pile up food high and sell it cheap are about tastes, flavour, seasonings...you are (or should be) paying for something unique cooked by true chefs. In this instance you are paying someone for the preparation and skill of the food, with (in theory) unique taste and flavour. Not about size/quantity.

You are stereotyping yourself here that all high class restaurants = hamster portions and thats the end of your argument.

I think you are missing my point somewhat, and with that there are diminishing pubs out in the country still that are traditional that do meals for £5-£8.

As you state character and unique atmosphere is a matter of personal taste, I am just expressing mine on this forum that for me soulless places like this that cook food that requires no chef skills whatsover in a meal you could be served up with equally at Ikea or a Supermarket Cafeteria do nothing for me other than help kill off true traditional pubs that have soul, unique character and homemade food and real ales

You said if we all liked the same places, then there would be only one type of food on offer, and we'd soon be bored,....well welcome to the world of Pub Chains thats what you are getting...may as well do it McDonalds style...Make my Meal a Number 2 and a Pint of your finest generic lager.

You carry on funding that sort of "boring" place, and I will continue not to.
