28th Oct 2008 - It makes me sad to write such a scathing review as I live close to the Roebuck and I used to quite often I frequent this lovely building for a beer or two in the afternoon or evenings it has a great atmosphere and is great to meet with friends for a drink

I am a bit of a foodie and I enjoy a good pub meal but feel that the food The Roebuck are serving lets the pub down something major! I am yet to have an enjoyable dining experience and I feel it is very it is very over priced, also the food is disgusting to say the least and the majority of the time your lucky if you even get what ordered! The last dinner I had there was a venison burger (£8.95) which tasted like a tired some old deer and the texture was so chewy I couldn’t bring my self to get past the fist bite!

I tried it for breakfast too thinking that maybe a different chef worked the mornings alas no I ordered the eggs Benedict with Salmon when I got it the eggs were over cooked and separated from the white to ad insult to injury there wasn’t any hollandaise sauce when I asked for hollandaise sauce the waiter took it away 10 minutes later I got back this cold separated egg thing with a cold yellow sauce that had a lovely big skin on it!

So in short if you don’t care what you eat/when you get it, perhaps you have had your taste buds removed or you just have money to burn then go to the Roebuck for a meal, but I personally would not even take my dog to this pub for dinner and I'm am sceptical to go back even for a beer due to this.

21st Aug 2007 - Good pub, changed styles subtley a few times in the last few years, edging up and down the pub/relaxed bar spectrum. Busy and loud in the evenings, quiet and relaxed Sunday lunch, which I think is the best time to visit.

20th Jan 2005 - Seemed to have quite a relaxed attitude to closing time when i was in here waiting for Dan to show his face.

Bar is situated right in the middle of the room, somewhat limiting space, football put on the big screens, i think they had a pool table.

Prices OK, BADLY in need of a makeover with the decor, in fact the roof was leaking last time i was in there!
