Whomever Gives This Pub A Good Rating Has No Idea About What Good Food Is!
The Honor Oak Pub
I ate here a few days ago and I have to say that it was a horrible experience. I have eaten there one time before a few months ago but only ordered the onion rings which were very good.
I only ordered them because it said “house-made” on their menu and they were proper good-battered fat onion rings. So I was looking forward to getting them again but sadly they were no longer on the menu. Shame as it would have been the only good thing left on the menu now.
So my new approach to a new restaurant is to order 2 appetizers and see if they can cook those well, and if they do, then I order something more. Sadly I did not adhere to this vital principal and paid that frustration in a 3rd dish which I immediately regretted. I ordered the calamari and beef brisket taco starters. I figured that a chef can’t mess up something like that right?
So the calamari rings were cut way too thin, almost like strings and they gave less than only 10 rings, yes I counted! It was an extremely small portion put on top of a salad, but I didn’t order a salad, so why put calamari on top of a bunch of greens that had no salad dressing on it? …hmm …maybe to make the dish look bigger than it was? Maybe because they were too cheap to give actual calamari in their calamari dish? Maybe it was to save money since the bar usually goes out of business every 3 months and then sold to new ownership whom repeat the same poor ethics?
Next the beef brisket tacos were the smallest tacos that I have ever seen, It was like ridiculously too small, jokingly microscopic, absolutely pathetic and quite insulting to the customer. I wish that I had put a 50 pence coin next to these tacos and took a pic for you viewers just to show the silly small scale of these tacos …and there was only 3 of these little things. Both of these appetizers were worth less than half of their menu charged price really, we were thoroughly disappointed.
Still hungry ofcourse I ordered a hamburger …my 3rd regrett
