Profile information

Not a big drinker but like to have a decent pint when I do, I don't mind modern pubs or the old traditional type but I expect good manners, good beer and clean toilets.

Old Orleans, Enfield

Well, what can I say that has not been already said. I have been using this pub??? since it used to be the wake arms and also City Limits. We arrives here as my wife wanted to go because it "looks so nice with all of the flowers outside" WHAT A MISTAKE! We arrived and parked in the ample car parking and were very impressed with the floral display outside, we wanted to sit outside as we have a four year old so she could use the play area. We sat down and four people lit up and started smoking so we moved inside, we were seated by our waitress who was very nice at a decent table and ordered drinks, the Fosters tasted like they had left pipe cleaning fluid in before serving and the gin and tonic tasted even worse (how can they mess that up??) we ordered the sticky chicken served on a bed of onions and when it arrived I thought they had made a mistake and given me a childs meal or starter. I complained to the waitress who got me some more fries as the twelve I had been given would not feed a mouse, once we had been given more we ate our meal, in fairness it didn't taste too bad but what a rip off. The staff here were ok the place is still a nice building but only go if you fancy being fleeced, the food is over priced and not great, the drinks do not taste right and you leave with a feeling of being ripped off!

The Three Horseshoes, Mole Hill Green

I live quite close to this pub and drop in often it has a huge garden which is never overcrowded and the place itself never seems so busy that you have a job to get served. The building is very quaint and it's worth a visit just for that but such a lovely place to sit on a summers day and very safe if you have kids as they normally have a bouncy castle etc and as I say a huge garden with tables outside.

The Barley Mow, Histon

Visited the barley mow again, once again an excellent meal and reasonably priced, the reason we went back was that we enjoyed our first visit so much and it was interesting to see that the second visit was as good as the first. I think that some people make comments based one one visit and perhaps the place was having a bad day [all places do] but after the second visit I think that they do a very good service for a reasonable price, the toilets are very clean and the staff seem to be hard working and polite. Now I could complain it wasnt ideal as I wanted lap dancing and a game of poker but if I had wanted that I should have gone elsewhere but I went for a budget priced family meal and got exactly that. I will visit again soon. Steve.
